    Lunch on the patio was delightful! 3 of us enjoyed salads, excellent fish and delicious schnitzel, shared carrots and dessert. Weekday lunch with first class service.

    We were seated right away and I’m assuming because we were a large party with kids, were seated towards the back patio door with not a great viewpoint/ambiance. The table was marble and looked spotted and not well cleaned. Took a wile to get drinks once we sat down. The waitress knew we were short one water, but still took a while to bring drinks. A spilled drink that I notified her of was only cleaned up when it started to migrate to the table next to us, even though I asked for napkins to assist with the spill when it happened (she was still taking our orders at that point). We didn’t order an appetizer but the main entrees took a LONG time to come out, even though 5 of them were basic kids meals and the other meals were sandwiches. I felt like tables around us that were seated after us got food faster than we did-not sure why. My sandwich was very good, but the ‘truffle fries’ served with it looked reheated and burnt, many of them in bits and pieces. Overall experience was just alright-would maybe try to dine in again. I felt like I had a better experience at the wine event I attended than when dining in.
