Restaurant was excessively loud. Actually, in my opinion, management should have intervened to quell the boisterous behavior at a large, all male, inebriated table. They were drunk and shouting. Service was very good and the octopus appetizer was superb.

Great food and a wonderful waitress!! Will definitely came back. These waiters work hard! Please tip them. Treat people like you want to be treated. If you’re getting comped a $500.00 meal, at least get the waiter a $100.00 tip. Please send the kind and beautiful waitress a big thank you! Blessings!

I go here quite often. This was the worse piece of meat ever. For the price of this its ridiculous to have this happen. We always ask for the 20 ounce ribeye off the bone and sliced to share. Waitress put plate down and disappears. Over 1/2 of it was fat, was not cooked to my asking (which was medium) it was not even warm inside was still raw. By the time the waitress came back I was so disgusted we asked for a manager. He was kind enough to remove it from our bill and agreed totally why we complained.

Food and service was outstanding. The noise level is almost unbearable. We have dined there twice and both times it was extremely loud. We had to raise our voices so that we can talk to each other and be heard! Not a romantic environment. The restaurant needs to invest in noise reducing ceiling and wall coverings.
