    We came in time for happy hour and had wine and cocktails at the bar. Great deal and nice pours. Dinner in the dining area was delicious. Service was pleasant and leisurely, but if you're in a rush, tell them. Our experience way exceeded our expectations for casino dining in AC. Recommend you try it!

    We try to visit every time we are in Atlantic City. This past Sunday we celebrated my son's 21st birthday. We had a group of 6. The staff was extremely polite and friendly. Starting with the hostess, right down to the Manager that stopped by to see how we were doing. I can not say enough about our waiter....Alex. His willingness to accommodate any request, knowledge of menu items, wrapped up with a friendly personality that made our dining experience very enjoyable. The food is fresh prepared, served hot and never disappoints.

    Disappointed this visit. Brought friends for dinner and the noise level was very loud due to private group watching the World Cup. They were yelling and cheering every few minutes and we felt like we were in a sports bar instead of a nice restaurant enjoying dinner. My dining companions were not impressed with the restaurant, especially since I had previously told them how much they would enjoy dining here. We will re-think dining here in the future.

    We had not been here for over 4 years(had not been to AC) and it was wonderful!! They had Gluten Free pasta for me and made my whole meal GF My husband had the same as me, but not GF and his was excellent also! The service was GREAT, so friendly , fast etc. The wine was very good. We both had the Shrimp Fra Diavlo. The salads were very different and very tasty.

    Ate here several times and always pleased. This time, just OK. First, they forgot to bring the Caesar salad. When the entrees came, I told the waitstaff. He said - Yes, it's coming. Then our waiter came and asked if we still wanted it. We didn't since we already started on our main course (removed from bill). We didn't have a complicated order, so they should have remembered the salad. One person ordered a pizza and it came to the table lukewarm. I'm sure if I asked them to reheat it they would have, but it wasn't worth it. Also, there seems to be a lot of help. A lot of people around the table whisking plates away, etc. The scallops were only OK - kind of small. Overall, it's good. But I think it's slipping just a little.

    Dined on 4/5/2014
    We had a dinner there, it was my bachlorette party. I was expecting something with class since dishes are $50 and up, not including alcohol. I was also expecting more of a fine dining experience. We ordered oysters for appetizers and i was very dissapointed, for $3 a piece they were pretty bland. Than I got pasta with meatball, it had 3 hugeee meatballs that were dry in the middle. At the end of the dinner they just threw the bill on the table without even clearing our table. Don't go there if you want a fine dining experience, not worth the money

The complimentary appetizer was delicious and as the rest of our food arrived we were more and more impressed as everything was so tasty! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family who happen to be in the Atlantic City area.

    Restaurant Week for lunch was a great deal! However not the dining experience you get for dinner which is without a doubt a 5 star experience. Lunch lacked the ambience with bright lights and sterile setting. Would not go back for lunch but dinner is worth the price.

    Dined on 3/2/2014
    I dined here during Restaurant Week and felt very rushed as soon as I sat down. There were not many customers, and no one was waiting for a table, but the whole experience felt rushed (I arrived at 12:30 pm and received the check at 1:15). The meatball appetizer was delicious - that was the best part of my dining experience. The chicken entree was undercooked and very salty - chicken seemed like the scraps of what could not be used for any other dish - lots of fat. The dessert was very cold and dry around the edges - like it had been pre-plated and refrigerated the night before. Coffee tasted very acidy,and when I reached the bottom of the cup. there were many coffee grounds...I have dined here before and previously enjoyed my food.

    I took my boyfriend here on Valentine's Day, which was also his birthday. I have to say, We were treated like royalty. The service was impeccable, the food was exceptional and as busy as they were with Valentine's couples, they gave him a Birthday celebration like nothing I could have expected. I was extremely satisfied with every part of this dining experience. The food was authentic and fresh and out of this world. Clearly, I would highly recommend this place and not shy away on a special occasion.

    Will absoutely dine there again. Excellent service & amazing meal, Although this is fine dining, the staff were very friendly and down to earth. Very helpful with the menu and made suggestions based upon my preferences. Nothing was a problem!!! Don't miss this place. However, if you make a reservation make sure its for the dining room and not the cafe ( a mistake I made ) but of coarse they moved things around on New Years Eve no less to accomodate us. Again, Great Service. 5 stars

    We came here for New Year's Eve, and loved everything about this restaurant. The service is impeccable with waitstaff waiting on your every need, and then some. Plates are removed quickly, water refreshed often. The waiters are always making sure everything is okay, without being annoying. I enjoy being served when I am paying a lot for my meal, and this place pulls it off to perfection. The drinks are made to order and are delicious. My Chicken Parm was flat like I like it, and not drowned in sauce. The only problem is its butterflied and there was a bone in it. So be careful. But it was perfectly cooked. The manager was gracious with our questions about it. Its fresh. Awesome restaurant all the way around! Loved it.

Beautiful surroundings and delicious food which was served hot, with a presentation that was pleasing to the eyes. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Look forward to dining there again.

    We went to dinner for my husband's birthday and although it was a Thursday night and the restaurant was not crowded I felt like we were rushed through our meal. The food was good.......I had the mushroom risotto and my husband had the veal piccata. The fried calamari and salads were also good. The problem was definitely pacing. With salads, apps, the main course and dessert we were in and out in 40 minutes. We really felt rushed. We have children and had to make arrangements for this evening out, so we were really disappointed to be so rushed.

    This was an exceptional dining experience. My favorite part of the meal is that as soon as you are seated, you are presented with cheese shaved fresh from the wheel, crispy eggplant, and crusty bread. The wait staff was extremely attentive. The food was outstanding! I enjoyed the Filet Mignon and my husband had the Lagustino Shrimp Scampi, in which the shrimp were the size of lobster tails. We skipped dessert, but the specialty coffees were perfect! My only negative, in the ambience category, was that it was just a little too dark to read the menus!
