Food is mediocre -- at dinner AND brunch. They are often out of listed menu items, esp. wines. They were RUDE to my wife on the phone when she made a reservation.

The person on duty at the phone would not answer my question when I called, I gave up trying when he hung up on me at the second try. At that point I thought to myself that the service in the restaurant would be so bad that it wasn't worth trying the restaurant.

They were somewhat overwhelmed the night we were there, but with some patience and understanding on our part it was all worthwhile. Nice people, delicious food served beautifully.

The service was terrible and they ran out of most of the food on the menu. The place is shabby and they acted like they were not interested whether we came back or not.

I have been to this restaurant 3 times. The first time was terrific, the second time less so and the most recent time was plain awful.

We arrived when the restaurant opened, and we were told that the chef was not there and would not be there for at least an hour. We left.
