    Pros: Bread was quite dry, but with oil, was the best thing I ate there.
    Cons: Over priced, mediocre tasting, unprepared food and lethargic service

    Summary: The restaurant itself was clean, for the most part. The restrooms were dark enough that I could only see a yellow discoloration and couldn't say if they were clean or not. Although the restaurant was pretty full, the staff didn't seem particularly busy. ... read more
