    Love the look and style. Food came quick, but undercooked. All dishes had meat that was bloody and undercooked- steak, kids burger and even the chicken. The Calamari was the best part of all and happy hour prices are reasonable. Servers are nice and attentive. Got waters for all without even asking. I wish more places would do this. We were outside though weather is nice and ample space we were swatting flies. I though the kid area would be set up better as advertised but looked like a spot for buss boys to take breaks and storage for dishes.

    Service was excellent (Niko did a great job!). We ate outside and the atmosphere was very nice. Lobster bisque, Korean short rib, scallops & flatbreads were very good, but overpriced. We had the Twisted Elvis for dessert and it was a bizarre combination of flavors and I wouldn’t recommend it. Overall, the restaurant was nice!

    The service and ambiance were fantastic and the food was excellent. But my son’s steak was over cooked the first time. That being said, they made an entire new meal at no charge. Would definitely recommend!

    Pretty sure our server forgot about us… apps came out quickly but it took 50 min for food to come out and I had to stop a separate waiter and ask. I know the time specifically because I checked a time stamp on my phone of the picture I’d taken of our Brussel sprouts (10/10) and it has been 45 min since the picture was taken. No refills were given for our sodas by our server who we only saw twice - to take the order and grab the plates. The manager had to give us our check because he was nowhere to be found. A shame because we were having dinner for my grandma who just celebrated being cancer free and we were simply FORGOTTEN

    We went for a birthday and we’re told they celebrate for birthdays but then nothing happened. The food was really good but some items seemed small compared to the menu description. Service was “good to ok” a few times we felt forgotten or they were short staffed.

    Met daughter’s new college roommate & family from out of state. We wanted to introduce them to your resturant. The food took quite a long time to get & then the flatbread was never delivered.

    We were really disappointed on this visit. We brought to new quest with us. One a retired professional Cook. His wife a newly appointed female officer as the Commander for Naval Unit. They have just moved here. Our hostess Sabrina and the server "Brandon" are the only five stars in this review. 1. White Wine Sauce Mussels - Small, slightly undercooked and not as tasty as in the dozen times in the past. 2. Drinks were a long wait 3. Our meal somehow had been forgotten and left on the shelf (so we were told) 4. The price for a few pieces of chicken as a side order $7.00 - Way too small. We get way much more for $4.00 everywhere else we dine. We understand the price increases with the screwed up situation - but a 4% surge charge, menu price increases and then a poor product? Really? Makes us wonder.. why are we tipping 18-20% when the min wage has increased, the prices, have increased, and the portions are smaller and less tasty.... ? Really sorry to have say all this.

    Service, ambiance and all food (except the halibut) were outstanding! The music speaker was right over our table but our server graciously turned it down a bit for us so we could enjoy table conversation. Like mentioned, all the food, scallops, flatbread and the amazing brussel sprouts were amazing! My halibut was a bit dry. A shame too, because the sauce was amazing but not enough to compensate for the dry fish. And for the $35 price, I had expected a better prepared dish.

    Very beautiful outdoor seating, great service and delicious food! The Twisted Elvis is a must try dessert. The happy hour drinks were also great. My only tip is that the lunch servings are especially small; I would recommend just eating off the regular/lunch menu if you aren’t eating many appetizers.

    My husband and I enjoyed date night at Bo-Beau last weekend, we were quickly seated on the beautiful patio. Steven was our server, he was attentive, accommodating and very nice. The escargot and the Brussel sprouts are a MUST! We had steak and mussels for dinner, delicious! One of the best Old Fashioned I’ve had. Dan, the General Manager, checked in on us, great guy, enjoyed speaking with him. All in all we’ll definitely be back!!

    The panko crusted halibut was really good. My $49 ribeye was full of gristle and very thin and there was a top layer of fat that was very undercooked. It was awful. The grilled asparagus was mushy. Would not go back again.

    Ordered salads but they showed up after we got our food. I got the sesame ahi - ahi great but rice was dry and lacking flavor. I was also not given soy sauce (even though wasabi ball was on plate) and had to ask. It took a long time to get and rest of party were almost done eating before I started. Cherry martini was excellent and “vibe” of outdoors was excellent. Hostess not very friendly.

    I went here with my family last night. My wife, daughter, son in law, 6 year old granddaughter and 11 month old grandson. We had appetizers first, while we were waiting for the main courses my wife asked our waiter if he could wipe off the table because it was a bit of a mess. The waiter then started to admonish my wife for asking him to wipe off the table saying that they don't wipe off the table between courses and told her that that's the difference between fine dinning and casual dining. Obviously this ruined the mood and along with it the evening. I bit my tongue and did not get involved by certainly wanted to. I am writing this to let management know what went on so maybe they could prevent this behavior.

    Sooooo hot. We asked for indoor seating because it was a very hot day. We arrived at 4:15 and had reservations indoors. It felt like they had JUST turned the AC on and we were dripping for about 45 min. Please turn the AC on well before opening. We were very uncomfortable. Food and drinks were great.
