    I've been wanting to try this place for so long, and I'm kicking myself for not going sooner! The service, food, cocktails, and vibe were great. I thought the server who waited on us was so kind and lovely, she was 10/10!

    The food was amazing! Everything we had was delicious. At our table we had the Mediterranean appetizer and the apricot chicken flatbread, both of which were absolutely wonderful. I had the pomegranate eggplant which was so good, I am now dreaming about it. My husband had the lamb shank, which was also terrific. We also had the chicken kabob and the trout on my table with our guests. Every single thing was absolutely delicious. We will definitely go back!
