    Had a great time and will definitely be back. we went there to see the Gold Cup soccer final between Mexico and Jamaica and there was perfect size crowd there. After the game we sat outside in the patio area and just enjoyed the ambiance.

    They did not have my open table reservation so I was at a table too small for my group. The place was packed, which I expected since there was a game on, but the service was still pretty good. I was okay with everything other than them not having my reservation :(

    Excellent food and even better service. Only complaint was the noise level inside made it very difficult to have any meaningful conversations. The TV volume could not be adjusted- so combined with the regular customer voice levels, it was LOUD! Next time we would sit outside. We'll be back!

    Outstanding bar and food selections for basic good eating. The staff and atmosphere is welcoming and you leave the place feeling relaxed after a long day at work. A great place to meet friends after work and just relax.
