This was by far the worst restaraunt experience I have ever had anywhere. Starting with lipstick on the drinking glass, our server (who is also the owner) happily picked the food out of her teeth while she took our order. Upon asking her of the salad dressing options she told me to come to the computer screen to look at them, as she would not take the time to tell me herself.

My friend ordered a mojito. After complaining about making mojitos our server obliged and made the drink but failing to meet average quality standards of a mojito.

She yelled at us asking for our food order, while not making any eye contact nor making us feel as though we were welcome or being served in her restaraunt. After ordering, she again complained that our choice of dinner was the "hardest" food to make.

We ordered the vegetarian lasagna, burrito, sushi, and edemame options on the menu. Both the lasagna and burrito were served lukewarm and very unsatisfactory. The sushi tasted like rubber and looked as though it had been siting in the fridge for days even though it was made right in front of us.

Our edemame beans were first served frozen. After letting our server know, we were served edemames that smelled as though they were microwaved in plastic.

We didn't finish any of our meals completly, and after complaining the owner would only remove the edemames from our bill.

I would highly recommend avioding this restaraunt. The owner was not only rude, loud, and ignorant, but she couldn't take 30 seconds to speak with us about our meal.

The concept is great, however avoid this restaraunt at all costs!!
