I have been here several times, have enjoyed every time, and found it very hospitable and personable. So I suggested this restaurant for a party of 12 women in the neighborhood. The food was great, the service was even greater, and we had a wonderful time. It was a weeknight, so I did not expect it to be very crowded, but indeed, the tables were full. So whoever wrote the past reviews on it being a terrible place, all I can say is they must have been having a bad hair day. Yes, you do have to bring in your own bottle of wine, but actually, that is the fun part. There is a $3.00 charge for wine set-up, but for the money you save on purchasing your own bottle at a local liquor store, it's worth it. They chill it for you and again, the service was terrific. Give it a chance and support your local neighborhood businesses. We need them.
