Friday evening dinner with friends - good food, nice conversation, winding down from a week's work. NOT HERE! It is an extremely noisy restaurant to begin with, with not a shred of anything to absorb sound - no curtains, no tablecloths, nothing but hard surfaces. Then add an out-of-tune shrill singer with a microphone. It was the most annoying restaurant experience I have ever had. The food is good. The service was OK until the "music" started, then came to a standstill. We waited over 15 minutes after asking for the check, then had to ask the manager for it again. He was not the most courteous of people. Altogether, a bad experience.
