    Very different experience than prior visits. There was actually an armed guard with a pistol strapped to his side standing at the host stand. That should have been my sign to turn around and leave. Everything went downhill from there.

    The food was good, but the service left something to be desired. Our server mistakenly mixed up the checks, and it took a considerable amount of time to resolve the issue. This delay was much longer than expected.

    Chef was not interactive at all. He also forgot to provide elements of the meal. We were seated 45 mins past our reservation time and then another 30-45 until the chef came. Disappointing experience for the cost.

    I rarely eat here, but I have high expectations when I come. It's been about a decade since I was there last, but yesterday was lackluster. The service was great, except waiting thirty minutes for a table that I made reservations for. It was my birthday dinner and I didn't get sang to. The free picture was nice, but my family wasn't focused and so it could have been better. The chef was very intuitive and improvised entertaining my three year old, which was so very special. The server was on top of her service and was great. The noise level made it hard to hear the chef with a mask on, though.
