Group of 4 went in mid-june for dinner before Mamma Mia.

Hostess was very friendly and warm. She gave us a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. It was a 5 pm reservation so no one was there.

Seated outside. Greeted by a attitudie waiter. 3 of us had the mango mojitos. It was good, but lacked umph perhaps it lacked liquor.

Ordered the calamari salad which was great and enough for 4 as well as the crab cakes, which was marginally good.

It took the waiter long time to come back and check on us for drinks. We were getting annoyed. He finally came after 20 minutes.

We shared:
1. Cuban Chicken (bland and boring-el pollo loco does it better)
2. Whole crispy fish (not fish was not fresh, the meat kind of crumbled in your mouth - not flakey.
3. Butter fish with edamame and black beans (very yummy great mixture of texture and flavor),
4. Lamb (mild slices of lamb with mild sauce and veggie sides - good)

We still had to wait for the waiter to come around for our 3rd round of drinks. He never did. Had to hail another waiter.

We passed on dessert becuase of the show. If we came back we would probably just do the calamari salad and appetizers. BTW, the bill for 4 was $360 not including tip.

We went there to check out stars. We saw Jamie Fox
