The service was great. The waiter Michael was an experienced professional. The place was packed with customers. Had reservation and the waiting time was short. We were seated at a corner table with a nice view.

The seafood combo soup was great! Unfortunately, all the mussels were very small (6 to 8 pieces peanut size) but also bad with very unpleasant taste.

They were out of the prime rib which being a restaurant I believe you should always be stocked of the items your offering on the menu. Other then that everything was good!
