So the service and food was amazing. The fried mushrooms with a Sriracha ranch were so yummy and crispy. The salads were fresh including a Caesar salad with blackened chicken on it. Then a berry salad with a side of balsamic dressing was amazing. The service was outstanding and the place is adorable.
