The ambiance, decor and theme of the place is really great. Went there twice. The first time we made a reservation and had a great experience. The second time we didn't have a reservation and were placed in the middle of the restaurant in between the bar and other patrons. It was very uncomfortable having waiters passing by us and worrying about a hot meal falling on us. (staff did accommodate and moved us)The drinks are weak and the food is good but I've had better, I don't like the fact that your order does not come in an orderly manner. My husband got his rice and beans before he got his fish . We had to remind the staff to bring out the fish. It took about 10 more mins.
