We ate downstairs in the main dining room . The food was superb, as always, and wait staff was attentive. However, the noise level was very high -- which is too bad since adjustments to décor (noise absorbing drapes, ceiling baffles, etc.) could improve. We also found the wine list more limiting than usual with several intended choices unavailable.

The appetizers were really good - we tried the calamari with spicy dipping sauces and the crab cakes.
We enjoyed the steaks- cooked perfectly and seasoned just right.
The salmon was light and lots of flavor.
We plan to go back to try more dishes.

The food was tasty and the stake was prepared as requested. At the beginning the service was slow, although the restaurant was not full, but later on became excellent and very attentive. The prices are on the high end but great value to what you get. The restaurant low noise level is appropriate both to conduct business meeting or have a romantic dinner.

The place is beautiful. Food and beverages excellent. The waiter was a bit robotic and seemed a bit stressed and the hostess was hard to hear so we were not sure if to follow her or stay put. All in all great experience . Very nice place

It was a combination business / social meal. Terrific and diverse menu and wine list, excellent and well informed service. We had filet, fresh grouper, scallops and emu... all excellent and recommend ... noise level is challenging but because of beautiful open space. Sophisticated but comfortable. Well done

I would recommend the restaurant for its food. I would not recommend the restaurant for its service. The bar tender was our waiter and really did not attend to our dining needs at all. He was. It polite after I asked where he had been and in a rhetorical tone said that he sent someone to check on us.
I did not anticipate such a remark from a server nor such looks he gave us after my question to him. After that he only referred to my companion and not to me, and I was the person paying. I did leave 20% for I was not sure if he was assigned double duty or he asked for double duty. I Was that his choice or was he assigned to double duty? I would appreciate a response to this question. And I would also hope you address this situation.
It was not fair to me, your customer, for those around us were receiving much better service.

Everything was amazing. Superb food. Our server, Alex was fun and knowledgeable about the menu. Engaging and a great sense of humor. James, the manager runs a great restaurant. He checked in with guests, a thoughtful gesture. The menu is no ordinary everyday menu with a variety of imaginative choices... we shared the escargot and the fois gras as a starter and it did not disappoint. Mains were the scallops and the Emu. Delicious combinations of flavors and beautiful presentation. Overall, a wonderful evening. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough. Will definitely be back.
