Okay, Im someone who enjoys finding great food, and sharing it with everyone. I love a place who embraces customer service, food quality and ambiance. I've been here once at the other location, I enjoyed myself. But last night, I returned (new location) and it was a disaster. Honestly. Im on menupages a few times a week and this is my first review, I just had to. We were bringing a large party, and planning on spending a lot of money here, which we knew and made specific plans with the owners wife. Everything was changed once we got there. They tried to charge everyone $40 who were coming for our gathering. This is a free venue. a place you can go and eat and drink and enjoy the music. at least i thought that is what we were told. And which was true for everyone else entering except us. The bartenders were rude, the owner was rude and the food wasn't as good as in its other location.

Yea. Thats how it feels when you go there - esp in a big group. While the food was decent, the drinks are super watered down and extremely overpriced. And the bartenders will add $2/drink as gratuity if you hand them a credit card. If you like very loud music during dinner and you don't like a conversation over dinner - this is your place! And if you stay after dinner - be prepared to be shoved around. Its that much fun!!

I made reservations at the Ave. B location but was moved to the LaGuardia Place location.I specifically expressed that it was important for me and my husband to see the belly dancing show, so I asked them what time our dinner reservations should be, I was told 8pm since the belly dancers start to perform at 8:30pm.When I reconfirmed by reservation I again expressed that we want to see the belly dancing and was told it will be at 8:30. When we got to the restaurant, we were told the belly dancing won't start until 9pm.Then we were told 9:30pm and then 10pm.By 10pm, the belly dancers were performing on the top floor, but has not gone to the 2nd level where we were seated.My husband and I were annoyed at this time, so we just left, especially that we wanted to go to a different place for dessert.The food was very delicious and the service was great at first (although our order took too long to come - about an hour), but towards the end, our male server (since there was a female and male server who alternated) just changed.I don't know if it was because I kept asking about when the performance will start and showed frustration and disappointment about the time changes - but I was not rude, I simply expressed my frustration.He just didn't go back to our table anymore even when we asked for water, since we were about to leave.It's not a place for having conversations because the music is loud.They have prix fixe menus, but we weren't given that menu - it was probably just an innocent mistake.
