      Outstanding food and service during the Covid craziness. A glass is wine would have added to the enjoyment of great food and environment.

    The food here is fantastic so don't let the humble look of the building fool you. Service was top … More notch, friendly, unobtrusive, and knowledgeable. Waitress handled our special order with grace and kitchen knocked all the dishes out of the pack. Portions are amazingly generous!
