There is better food in other restaurants. This one can be avoided. Food is very mediocre and even the juices are all run down with water. Not good experience. Go better go Odina.

I would skip this spot even though the space was very comfortable and upscale for the area- the food left much to be desired. It was easy to make a dish for yourself that was vegan but the quality overall was not worth the stop.
