Not good, due to the offensive service. It one of those places that takes your really nice evening and just craps on it.\r\nI brought my girlfriend and parents for dinner here tonight at 7. We had the dorado & bronzini dishes, all good BUT\r\nThe service was downright insulting. Our waiter/wait staff could barely speak English but were likely eastern Mediterranean as would be appropriate. They seemed to be on drugs. They were slurring their speech...and no less than 7 times completely ...view moreinterrupted the tableview lessProvided by Citysearch
We asked the host how long will the wait be. He said half an hour. So we had a drink. Half an hour later, we came to the host, he said, another 15 minutes. Nothing.

The bread is delicious, but the Malbec I had was served warm and the...view more dinner portions were miniscule and food just...OK. Even though there were plenty of empty tables and absolutely no one waiting, the busboy kept attempting to remove our plates though we were only half done, while the nazi waitress hovered on during our meal making us feel uncomfortable. I would not go again.view lessProvided by Citysearch
Although reluctant when I saw the tacky interior, my worries were put at ease once we were greeted by such a friendly staff. The food was also surprisingly tasty.
