The only disappointment was that they were out gift cards. Also, you can not purchase one online which seems unusual for an upscale restaurant. Since the round trip travel time is significant, we are not going to go back just to buy a gift card.

Server was excellent. She was right on top of everything. Food was good and everything was brought out by other wait staff. When something was missing (like a soup spoon) it was immediately brought by another staff member.
Food was tasty and not over spiced and salted like most places these days. We had king crab legs, sea bass and lobster mac and cheese, all good!!

Terrible food. Fish and Chips were horrible- mushy fish mix inside, inedible. Honolulu shrimp , tiny and too much sauce. Way over priced. Can’t believed they even served the fish and chips.

Came down to Orlando for a couple of days for a well needed vacation for my wife birthday weekend.
Made a reservation and was seated in timely manner
The waiter (who if I recall said he was a bartender also) made the night so much more welcoming and fun. Brought a nice energy that was really impressive, knew his stuff and if he didn’t he should be playing poker. From drinks to appetizers to entrees ,he broke the menu down to a tee. Had a lemon martini that was amazing my wife had the lemonade also outstanding , shared shrimp and grits appetizer(talk bout great size for a starter) with so much flavor. I had the fillet cooked medium (perfect) but my wife dish really made the night(a whole head-on lightly fried snapper )talk about mind blowing
Highly recommended
Truly enjoyed our time and made the trip even more memorable

Loved the fish theme decor but tastefully done. Dined in one of the booths looking out towards the main dining area, that was enjoyable.
Wonderful wait staff, recommend several items but not annoyingly.
Save room for their signature peanut butter cup dessert.

Waited over forty five minutes for bread. My steak was saltier then the ocean. My wife had ordered fish and had to wait for lemons while her entree was getting cold.
Took some time to pick up dirty dishes. Wait staff seemed unprofessional even though restaurant wasn't even busy.
It was my one and only time going to this restaurant. Not worth the time or the money.

We had our Valentine’s Day dinner here. Food was good but not what I would call exceptional. I had filet Oscar. The filet was cook correctly, the crab topping was browned. My husband had the lobster tail special which included a large lobster tail. He was pleased with his meal. We also ordered the stone crab which was not worth the money for what we got. We realize stone crab is expensive so we figured to splurge since it was a special occasion. It was not that great. I also had a wedge salad which was just ok, not the best. Service was great, our waitress was very attentive and the chocolates at the end were a nice touch. I would try it again but would try a different dish next time.

It was the most horrible dining experience I have had in a long time. Within five minutes of sitting down we wanted to leave. We thought we should give it a chance and we regret that we did. We could never find our waiter... I ordered a medium well $45 filet mignon that came out cold dry and beyond chard.. I tried to make it taste better by putting butter on top of it and the butter wouldn’t even melt because it was so cold... The truffle fries had barely any flavor to them.. and the broccolini was burned. My father-in-law ordered crab legs and specifically told the waiter he did not want to see the shells and he wanted the crab leg meat removed before coming to the table and they served him the legs with the shells and the waiter didn’t show up for 10 minutes after the food got there in order to crack the shells and then he started doing it in front of my father-in-law who specifically did not want.. The clientele there made me feel like I would imagine what a brothel would be like in Las Vegas.. I have never seen so many ladies of the evening and trashy low class people and restaurant row. Their valet parking is the biggest cluster mess you have ever seen anywhere. We spent $225 and will never ever go back!

This was by far one of our worst dining experiences. Started with the hostess not seating us at our reservation, we were the third couple to walk in the door and while waiting, saw people that walked in 10 minutes after get seated. When I approached the main hostess, she was extremely rude and said they were very busy and they would seat us when they could. In the meantime, a second hostess walked up and said sorry the waitress was supposed to seat us and took us to our table right away after. They sat us in the side room at a table that felt to be as good as a pop up table. So we asked to switch to a more appropriate table which they obliged hesitantly. Everything was going very well until our main course came out. My filet (cooked medium rare) was gamey and not what I’ve experienced at this location before. My wife got a filet as well, but her’s arrived rare and charred extremely on the outside(ordered medium well). We sent hers back immediately and sent mine soon after. When our replacements arrived, mine was cooked properly and tasted much better. My wife’s came out medium and appeared to be the same charred steak she had cut open and sent back. The manager denied that being the case. After the second steak came out bad, my wife asked for a replacement dish (ordered the chicken breast). After waiting 40 minutes we asked for the check so we could just leave at that point. Once we did this, I watched the manager frantically run into the kitchen looking for my wife’s chicken dish. She brought it out and we just wanted to leave after being there for an hour and 40 minutes. She was extremely rude at that point. So we finally got the check and left to get my wife a properly cooked steak at Flemings next door. Needless to say, we will never be back.

The food was good but nothing outstanding. We had fresh oysters, and they were pretty small. Main courses were basic. The wait time was entirely too long. We had to nab our server, he kept walking by us, to wait on a huge table of people. Our bill was very large, but apparently we didn’t rate the service.

Went for Valentine’s Day and. Was seated outside next to the bar Our table was in a major traffic area for the servers and guest to go through. The noise was more than what I expected not a good date night location. (Maybe inside is different) the menu was limited for me since I have shellfish allergies on the appetizer menu didn’t have any options... Normally there’s at least one item that will accommodate for people that can’t eat shellfish. Wife got a sushi roll and they weren’t that great and I ordered A steak (
Can’t go wrong with the steak). When the state came in it looked like the meat was just boiled in hot water literally no taste to the steak. Sent the steak back to the kitchen which I hate doing but Our server insisted She definitely wanted to make it right. Once the stake came back it was pretty much the same. It looked like they just took it from our table. Walked around the restaurant and brought it back.At the point the manager came in to address the situation. Suggested to add some sauce to give it some flavor .... whatttt ! In a restaurant Ike that I would have expected nothing but the best both and seafood and steak. Pretty much the whole menu should be flawless.Let’s just add ketchup that will make it better smh. our server was great though she was very attentive And genuinely want it to make things better. I don’t see ourselves going again that’s just my experience.
