My order started off with a bang. I ordered roasted cauliflower as an appetizer. A chef did not create this dish. Perhaps a kid at camp threw a few pieces of cauliflower, including a piece that was poorly trimmed, in the oven. The house specialty of short ribs was okay and the portion size was small. Ditto the steak. The mashed potato side was oversalted. Did I say side, I meant to say bed. Overpriced for average fare. I am forced to go out to kosher restaurants so I guess this one is okay and I would go back.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
