This place is certainly popular! We waited a while (which I don’t mind bc I’m used it living in San Francisco), but the hostess was a total bitch! Ugh, someone should really re-train her because I would avoid returning just so that I don’t have to deal with such unprofessionalism again.

Our server a great though – a bit odd, but very likable.  The food tasted fresh and delicious. I’m glad because I would have been pissed to find crappy food after having to endure that horrible front desk.
