it's unfortunate. the food has generally been good, and it's disappointing when a place such as this closes. but the speed and attentiveness of service had been really dropping for a while, which meant we were less likely to go with the kids, even at an earlier time (530).

    someone on tripadvisor (debadabbadoo) posted their thoughts a while back, which is practically a step by step of what happened from the customer's point of view:

      Very,very sorry to hear. What was the reason, if beyond simple economics?

        Sad to hear it. A large group of friends and I went there in March during HV Restaurant Week and had a lovely meal. I hadn't been back since, but it was someplace I had in the back of my mind for special occasions. They had a good beer selection too.

          So sad. Really loved this place. Does anyone now what happened or was it just another product of the economy?
