    I love the restaurant and have returned 3 times within one month...no matter where I sit the acoustics are bad... I think kids should be in one section for those of us who may be trying to get away and relax....as it does add to the noisiness. Great place, fine service, view...all is fine in every other way.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    It was so loud that you could not talk to the person next to you. The food was very good but since we went with a group of 7 and could not have any conversations the night was ruined. They should separate the bar scene from the restaurant or somehow change the acoustics. Maybe they could limit the bar scene to hours after the dining hours like after 10pm?? It is a beautiful spot but we would not go again unless we heard that they had made some changes.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/14/2008
    While the food was excellent, the place is way too loud -- and we were outside on the deck. Granted that there was a thunderstorm, which increased the noise level, but even with plastic walls lowered to surround the deck, diners were getting wet and having to move their tables and chairs further under the awning. Many people got up and moved to tables inside, increasing the level of commotion and noise outside (and I'm sure inside as well). I realize that the storm is out of the control of the restaurant, but it seemed to us that they should have developed a better and less disruptive Plan B for this instance. Although we had been looking forward to trying dessert, we didn't even stay -- it was way too uncomfortable and noisy.

    The service was verrrrry slow. We waited more than 20 min for drinks. By the time the waiter came by for our appetizer order, we were too hungry to wait again and ordered dinner.

    JamieV
    Dined on 6/3/2008
    Excellent food; the calimari salad was outstanding. The service was unacceptable, however. There was only one waiter covering the entire interior dining room while 3-4 waiters handled the outdoor dining area. Moreover, the support staff (water, for example) was non-existent; we had to ask on three separate occasions to have our water glass refilled. The service issue was too bad, as it detracted from an otherwise good dining experience on a special occasion, as the food was exceptionally good and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere and good scenery.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/1/2008
    We loved the food- I put a comment in the reservation that it was my husband's birthday and I was hoping that they would offer candles for one of the deserts or have reserved us outdoor seating, but that didn't happen. Still, due to a tardy guest we were late for our seating anyway, so it likely wasn't really their fault about the outdoor seating. The food was spectacular and the dining area was pretty, though not as wonderful seeming as the deck. I didn't think that the service was anything special, but it was a buffet brunch, so it wasn't like they had much to really do in the first place. We would go back in a heartbeat once we work off the 10lbs gained at brunch!

    Service was spotty and food did not get served on time. Bread came after appetizer. Drinks from bar came after bread. Two entrees followed two others. One came as someone was finishing. There was no coordination between kitchen and bar at all. Waitress was in a helpless situation.

    My girlfriend and I had a great time. The only complaint I have is that I had requested a birthday desert be brought to us at the end of dinner, but no one brought anything to us. I even talked with the hostess earlier in the night to confirm that they had recieved the speacial arrangements I wrote on your website and she acknowledged they had, but nothing came of it. Overall though, it was a very memorable experience.

    The food was very good...better than the service. There was also some confusion at dessert time. A birthday cake was ordered in advanced yet the wait staff asked if anyone at the table wanted dessert thus ruining the surprise. In addition, once the cake was brought out, it was not the one that was ordered.

    We really thought the food was incredible - overall a great experience. The only downer is the seating for two is very cramped, you are literally sitting right next to another couple which makes it hard to have a conversation with your date. Other than that, it is a very nice place.

One of the waiters was quite rude when we asked him to take a group photo (and I assure you, there was no one left for him to be serving in the restaurant).

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    We enjoyed our brunch, however I was very disappointed in that the price of brunch was $10 more than the week before, I suppose because it was Easter, but was no different, and we were not aware of the increase. I think it is bad business to not make your customers aware of that, especially when you call and email numerous times to remind us of the reservation.
