verdict: omg, i love it!
i had the most ginormous meal there last night and it still sits in my stomach as i type out this review. i say this in a good way because i still feel pretty full. dang, a meal that keeps going and going!
my friends and i came here for dinner and what a good find it is! at first when we walked through their doors, it was pretty off-putting because the space is so small and crowded and the thought of a long wait with an extremely hungry stomach seemed murderous. BUT apparently, they sit you first if you have all your party present so we were able to "front cut" a few folks. score!
i ordered their meat loaf entree (such yummy mash potatoes and veggies on the side!) while my friends ordered their sesame encrusted albacore and almond encrusted trout. all three dishes tasted HEAVENLY so my taste buds did the happy dance all through dinner. the service was good even though they were busy and never once did we feel pressured to leave a.s.a.p. to make room for others. we were able to sit for a bit to digest.
as we left the kitchen, our conversation started with "when i come back next time, i'm going to order the...." that's a true sign of a good restaurant, when you already start talking about coming back to eat more. seriously delicious eats!
