    I'm a little disappointed that I received an email (based on my VIB home location, I assume) offering a free order of fries with any entree order. When I got to the restaurant and asked if they now offered fries, the manager said this area (Colorado Springs) doesn't offer fries yet, but Denver does. I wonder why I received the email offer when the area in which my VIB card is registered doesn't even offer that item.
    Several of the dishes were almost gone. The waitress Bree did a great job of getting them filled before starting my plate. I appreciate the time taken to get all the item stocked before starting my plate.
    Our server was friendly and calm as she moved us through the line. Her attitude was an improvement over our last visit. Thank you, and please commend her for her attitude.
    We had to wait a minute for chicken to be done but the server rang up our order and dished up our sides while the chicken cooked, so there was really no additional wait. Very efficient and friendly.
    Overall another excellent experience. Only one small suggestion for improvement--you might consider investing in a microwave to be able to heat hot foods before serving. I realize it's difficult to keep hot foods hot on a steam table, but when they're barely lukewarm, it detracts from an otherwise excellent meal.
    Shorter gal with long hair is very helpful and fast. She's also patient with customizing orders.
    We are glad to see improvements in food quality, cleanliness, and servers; we & friends avoided this location for several months. Gabbie did an outstanding job - this was our second visit within 10 days, both times with Gabbie - thank you!!!
    No offer of falafel upon arrival. Sour faces from employees upon chechout. No music while we dined. Cool temperature in dining area (though this is typical here). No "Thanks for coming in" as we exited.
    Michelle was great and very efficient. It was my first time here, as I have recently moved to Colorado from the East Coast and was searching for something to tame my Mediterranean craving.
    As usual, i ordered a plate. It seems to me that, over the years, the quantity of food on the plate has decreased little by little. I am particularly referring to the "base" ingredients of lettuce, hummus, baba ganoush, etc. Also, i waited about 5-10 minutes for the steak kabob to finish cooking. I would have expected someone to tell me to go ahead and sit, and they would bring my entree when it was ready. On the plus side, i was impressed that each of the beef kabob pieces was individually tested for internal temperature. That made me feel better.
