We never got our table. We checked in around 9:00, our reservation was around 9:30, we waited till 10:30 and had to leave because the table was not ready. People who did not had reservation was given priority than us, I think the waitress racially profiled us and did not offer us the table. I would never recommend nor go back this stupid place.

Even with the reservation, we had to wait almost an hour and despite being told we we're the next table for two, multiple tables for two kept getting called. Once we made it past the awful the rest was pretty good. Excellent food (as always)...service was ok.

We had reservations for 5:30 Were seated at 6:00. The table on the balcony was under an airconditioning vent which blew cold air directly on our table. I would not sit in that location ever again.

Fabulous food as always. Unfortunately, our table was close enough to the door that we were cold the entire time we were eating. Every time the door opened, we were hit with a blast of cold air. Other than that, everything was fabulous and our waiter, Alberto, was phenomenal.

Wonderful place and I try to always visit when in the area. The décor and history is superb; all the menu items I've ever tried were wonderful and the service is impeccable. This is fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere. If you're able to catch the show, even better!
