  • The food and service was not outstanding or memorable. What WAS memorable was when the waitress asked upon delivering our bill if we were paying by cash or card? When the answer "card" was given she then demanded to know how much we were going to tip her? I have always believed that tips are discretionary and not mandatory. She received a 15% tip which was more than generous; my advice would be walk by and find a better luncheon venue.
  • If I could only give a negative star rating, I would have done it. Ordered steak and after almost an hour waiting I finally asked the waiter where's my food and he said it's almost done. When he served it, I was expecting the food to be hot but it was already cold. Who knows how long that food was sitting there. What really annoyed me was next to me were two diners who came in later after me and one of them ordered the same plate I ordered, they were almost done eating and my food has not been served yet. Don' t go to this restaurant, there's a lot around that area with better food and better service.
  • Not particularly pleasant. Quick coffee took longer to order than drink.
  • Hi guys , I ordered a pint of 1664 beer and came less than a pint in that glass- not fair for the high prices they have on beers. The rib eye steaks medium that we ordered for me and my girlfriend came rare . Too embarrassed to make a scene or return the steak.
  • Average food. Average service. They do have free WiFi.
