I will never go back. The service was awful. It was slow and inadequate. Our appetizers and bottle of wine had just been delivered, after a 20min wait, when we overheard the owner telling our waiter to hurry us along and get us out of the table. While I wanted dessert, we weren't even offered the option before the owner plopped the check down and waited for our payment right then and there. The food was decent, but certainly not worth the terrible attitudes.
Must Have Time – This place was suggested by my mother who usually has a good eye/palate for nice new places to eat. A friend and i arrive to a nice clean restaurant with about 8-10 other diners seated. I checked the menu ahead of time and was totally excited about every course. After about 20 minutes our first course arrived, the Duck spring roll which was delicious and the ginger/lime sauce was a great accompianment. As for oue entrees, i opted for the Italian Chicken & Dumplings and friend went with the pan seared salmon, i absolutely loved my dish with the sweet sausage and the broth which was not what i was expecting was a nice surprise. My friends salmon was a touch overcooked but all in all was a decent meal, just took about an hour and a half from start to end and this was on a Tuesday night, so dont go if youre in a hurry. i honestly want to go back as there are things i missed on the menu this time...
