Our waitress was a young lady named Mina or Nina but she was wonderful. Great attitude and recommended some great food and drink options. It’s a smaller restaurant but atmosphere was comfortable.

After waiting at least 5 minutes for someone to greet us we were told by Nina that we wouldn’t be able to sit at our scheduled reservation time. She told us she “tried to call but it went straight to voicemail”…LIE! And that the kitchen closes at 4:30 in order to change over to dinner. (Not the way any of the hours are posted for the restaurant anywhere). She rudely told us we would have to back later in order to get seated. She clearly had no customer service or communication skills as her tone was increasingly agitated and you could hear her eyes rolling in her head. Very very sad considering how excited we were to try this new restaurant.

Finally sat us at the bar, bartender took 20 minutes to even greet us, another 10 mins for water. I ordered a champagne bottle. Forever to get chaser. No ice bucket. When the couple next to us left he slide over their used ice bucket and put our bottle in it after it was almost empty. I’m only there for the food and DJ. On Saturdays. The bartender was more so into singing songs versus serving customers.
