"This was 3rd visit. Average food and disinterested service. On previous visits the food and drink were wonderful, which is why we returned to celebrate my daughter's birthday.
The maitre'd was very helpful- we moved to the 1st floor to get away from the deafening noise and vulgar language on the 2nd floor.
