Our food was extremely bland. When we shared our displeasure with our server, he replied that he couldn't do anything. When we called for the manager however, the chicken and waffles and steak and eggs were comped. I stopped by McDonald's on the way home, smh.

The ambiance has changed post pandemic. Very noisy. Lots of shouting from bartender and patrons at the bar. Seats had crumbs on them. Plates were wet. Saw a waiter setting a table and held the glasses by the top where patrons put their mouth. He also had his fingers inside the glass when he held them then put them on the table. This is after wiping the table with a cloth which is reused repeatedly with bare hands. Carpet smelled musty. I was disappointed. Food was just ok. Prompt seating was the only positive.

Very nice atmosphere. The food was delicious. We aren't from the area (we were there to see an event at Nassau Collesium). I had strip steak and my wife had Riccata Gnocchi. Both delicious. When in the area I would return.

Very nice waitress; food was so so. Tuna tartare was not fresh and had to send back, so did not start off too well. Pizza was decent. Salad was good. Was contemplating having party/event there, but will no longer consider it.

Food and service was great. The Sunday jazz band was nice, especially since it was not too loud. I deducted 1 star due to pesky flies that kept buzzing around.

Excellent outdoor seating and waitress worked very hard to service all her tables. The bus boys were a bit slow. Truly enjoyed the entire experience and will definitely return. I recommend this restaurant for its food and atmosphere inside and outdoors as well.

We were not told that the restaurant was closing for a private event until our server told us after we ordered apps. And was asked to order entrees quick cause it was closing. Wine glass was filthy and board was bland. Server was not attentive as he was busy planing for the party. Not what I was expecting from what I heard. I won’t be returning.

When we first arrived, we do not have to wait for too long, the staff was very nice and polite, the waiting frame for our order did not took long either, the food was fresh & delicious. Very affordable price. I highly recommend this place. The restaurant itself is beautiful, fancy & spacious. I fell in love with this place and will comeback in a near future.

This is our third time being there and I have to say they're consistent in their service which is excellent and their food which is above board. I'm not a wine drinker but I have spoken to people who have been there who all wine drinkers and they speak very highly of their expansive selection and reasonable cost

I really enjoyed my meal, service was very nice. Had dinner with a good friend and enjoyed it.
Prices are a bit high, particularly wine and liquor. $26 for a 6 oz glass of wine, although more premium label, is still very high.

$400 for two people with only 1 appetizer and no dessert is a bit high.

Pricing is the only thing that would keep me from recommending your restaurant.

Cant order shots to the table, kinda tacky

Staff were vacuuming and sweeping in the dining room while we were eating

Think the food and drinks are super overpriced compared to other restaurants and drinks aren’t properly made.

I don’t know why I continue to come here. Every time something is off. The waiter was awesome so I give credit for that. I had to send the steak back because it was disgusting. No flavor even with all the sauces and so tough I had to spit it out.
