I was seated under the canopy after three pm on Sunday October 15. The host cleaned and set the table while I waited and my waitress appeared soon afterward. I ordered a beer, small salad, and carpaccio with goat cheese. The meal was served efficiently but there were several noteable distractions to an otherwise satisfactory meal. First, the salad was set on the table with oil but no vinegar. There was no query from the waitress of my preference for dressing. The bread was served with the salad but no butter was presented. The carpaccio was served with pomme frites but no mayonnaise or katsup was offered. I had to chase the wait staff, several of which looked directly into my eyes only to turn away. I spoke to them, tried to get their attention politely, but finally had to stand and follow one only to be completely ignored. I finally received a small portion of terregon mayonnaise after finishing my carpaccio. I am writing this as I wait for Sonia M. To return and accept my credit card for payment. It is taking some time. Food is acceptible but the service leaves a poor impression. Regards Chris LaRocque GooglePlace - October 2017

Ok meal, steak a bit fatty. Definitely a tourist trap. Tempura vegetables were more akin to deep fried oily burned heavy batter. Cocktails are good. GooglePlace - October 2017

Good but too much salad in the salade César. Some more tomatoes and Parmesan wouldn't hurt. GooglePlace - May 2017
