    Service was slow, the entrees were good but the french fries we're awful. Ambiance was great for a nightclub, terrible for a restaurant.

    Came here with six co-worker for lunch. Everyone loved the food and we talked about coming back before we even finished our meals, if that tells you something. We had fantastic service as well.

    Since it was my husbands birthday and we were staying at Embassy suites in the same parking lot as taste, we decided to eat dinner here. Food was alright, nothing to really rave about. I had asked our server if we could possible get in the club later for free since we ate at the restaurant. He assured us that it wouldn't be a problem at all. However, once we showed up later about 10:30 all bets were off. Our server acted like he didn't know what we were talking about. Extremely disappointed at their lack of communication. If they couldn't pull off what we were asking for, then simply say NO. No need to beat around the bush about anything.
