Best Service

Let's just call it a feeling of being in highly capable hands. We don't feel rushed. The pacing of the meal is perfect. The water glasses and bread basket stay filled. The empty plates disappear just when we want them to. We get the sense the server knows, likes, and respects us, and we respect our server's professionalism, people skills, and plain good sense.
