    No longer serve wine, beer, etc. and never really explain why. Did they lose their liquor license or just chose not to renew to keep costs of the meals down. It would be nice to know.
    improve the cooking style and menu
    I think you could improve by having more instructions on what to do will all the dips and what is best to use each one for. Perhaps a small piece of paper included with the dips to tell about them. Also besides being told how long to cook the food it would be a good idea to include a small paper also with the proper times to cook what you ordered. I am sure lots of customers would like my suggestions.
    The seat on the chair was broken but we survived. The servers were great and helped my date have a great first experience there. We were a little disappointed in the no alcohol but it was nice to bring in a bottle of wine and save on cost. All the food was delicious!
    Our waitress was great! Unfortunately I do not remember her name. She explained the menu and the process perfectly. She was very attentive and made for a great experience!
    I had brought my father there for his birthday and we got last minute reservations for dessert. We were seated close to our reservation time, but that's where the efficancy stopped. We waited almost 8 minutes before the waiter came over to take our order. We ordered 2 chocolates for 5 people, 4 coffees and 5 glasses of water. After a good 10 minutes without any signs of our drinks, the waiter came back to ask if we wanted our coffee with our dessert. Really? That was an odd question. And he said they were just brewing the decaf fresh for us. But 2 of the coffees were regular and we still waited. Our drinks came out and then again we waited close to another 10-15 minutes for the chocolate to arrive. At that point, we were almost about to get up and leave. Once the dessert was delivered, the waiter discovered that one of our burners wasn't working and we had to have 2 pots on one burner. He came back and checked on us once and left the check. But then he never came back to get it! What turned into a fun celebration quickly soured the rest of the evening. Then when I looked at the bill, I saw that a 20% gratuity was automatically added. That was the last straw. I am always a good tipper when I receive good service, but getting 20% for the service we received was unacceptable. Our waiter received $12.49 tip for maybe $5.00 worth of service. I had just been to your restuarnt the week before and our server was excellent. I know this experience was a fluke, but spending $80.00 for dessert and getting second rate service really makes me question coming back again. It's a shame because my friends and I try to come every other month or so.
    Waitress spoke unnecessarily loudly. I was not notified in advance that the alcohol was "bring your own" last night (issue with the liquor license?). When I visited the Ladies' room there were 3 young "men" in T-shirts, jeans, and sneakers lying across the waiting area sofas playing on their phones. Thankfully they were gone by the time I was finished. The restroom could use more attention, specifically there was a ring of mold at the water line in the toilet bowl. Otherwise we really enjoyed our 2nd visit and will return.
    Our waitress was awsome . Very attentive and Polite. She gave us refills without asking and was very sweet. I always come just for cheese and salad and dessert because I don't eat meat. She didn't make me feel uncomfortable at all considering I only order those three courses .
