Excellent service by Thomas! If you're in a hurry, which we weren't this wouldn't be a good place for you since it takes about 2 hours for the entire 4 course meal, but definitely worth it! It was my first time here and honestly, for the week of my vacation in San Diego this place was the best in regards to customer service! I will definitely go back to this place, if not San Diego than other locations. Thank you so much!

If you can't fix it with duct tape or cheese fondue it aint worth fixing.

In separate studies, 4 out of 10 people buy their Mom flowers for Mother's Day, while 10 out of 10 Women love chocolate. Might we suggest chocolate?
