Gives insight to restaurant life
15 May 2018 | by rkezer77See all my reviews

I've read the book that the show is based on and it was incredibly relatable due to the fact of working in restaurants for awhile. So hopes were pretty high on this. The pace and storytelling is great so far but the casting for a few characters is definitely questionable, especially Tess. Giving it a shot for the first season, hope it lives up to potential.
