I really don’t like servers take empty dishes away while someone is still eating. I see you’ve people waiting but there is no need to rush you diners. And the servers were running, making the atmosphere rushed and crazy.

They’re trying hard to copy farm to table concept but when the food isn’t good for me to return, I’ll have to disagree with other diners’ 5 stars rating. Couple of years ago we visited Napa but their food backs up. Sweetness should not be considered good cooking. Charred octopus is very very chewy. So is the duck confit salad, tasteless and hard.

Our server had a sour face. Pls light up a little? We ordered 5 but only four came. Never mind. I’ll thinking that the 5th one is the most delicious Hong we’ve missed.

The house wine merlot and cab are good. Bathroom is spacious and clean. The best thing? They’re next to Iavarone Brothers.
