    Is this self service?

    It's better not to order from the menu, just call another place to deliver to your table. You'll get better food, superior service, and responsiveness.

    Go Veg

    Was put off by curtness of owner (or manager), but server was very friendly. Ordered from the vegetarian menu and food was not only very good, but quite reasonable. Garden was lovely-can't wait to go back.

    Pretty good

    Me and my gf went there and it wasn't all that bad. I ordered some asian style duck that was decent and she had the chicken marsala and had no complaints. Our food came really quick and the hookah was good. Overall for all we got I think it was a good value. Left feeling real satisfied. :)

    Cute Cafe...worth going atleast once!

    I see so many negative reviews but really its not as bad as it sounds. The problem is they get so busy so service may not be the quickest. The desserts are fanastic. The filet mignon smothered in muchrooms was fabulous-highly recommend that. Also the house salad with the green coored dressing is good-get it with the cheese pita bread corners! the atmosphere is the best part...overall it has more good than bad! Try it out!

    I been to this restaurant couple of times and each time I was hoping its going to be better, but it didn't get any better. This place is too expensive for the food and drinks they serve. The drinks are just horrible, the food not that great and I will warn you do not order calamari because its the most disgusting dish I ever ate. And my friends and I would always pay so much money for nothing special and I will never go back. The place does look nicer from the outside than when you go in. I would not recommand this restaurant because you could go somewhere else and have a great meal for the same prices.

    What a let down!

    I have been passing this place for several years now and finally decided to eat at this, what appears to be from street view, adorable restaurant. I was wrong, very wrong. First, the furniture is crappy and old. I had a burn hole on my seat. It felt like lawn chairs. It was noisy, filled with a bunch of loud NYC kids. The wait staff barely spoke english and were not friendly at all. They provided poor service for they never checked on us, did not respond when trying to get their attention and gave us attittude when their chardonnay tasted salty. The food was mediocre at best. I think I have eaten frozen meals better than this. We had a turkey burger and chicken parm. Overall, the experience was not the best. It's cute to look at from the street when you see the fountain and the vines, but that's pretty much all they have to offer.
