    The service was great! The owner came by the table to make sure everything was good. The only compliant was we had to send our steaks back. It wasn’t cooked the way we ordered it. So while half of us was eating the other half was waiting for our food. They were really nice about it though and took care of it. Overall it was a great dinner and great service.

    As always, we all felt valued. The staff is always warm, while being very professional. I am pretty sure that the manager, Cal, has never missed acknowledging us each time we are there. And then, there was the beautifully prepared food! We added their perfectly prepared halibut to a salad of our choosing. It was exactly what we each wanted! One more point, their ambiance, which is great, seems to always include just the right musical playlist.

    Was very disappointed, the first time my fish was VERY overcooked, when I request a new piece, then very undercooked. Both times lacked flavor. The person did not know how to cook.

    Moms 80th birthday. From uncooked halibut which we sent back. To short ribs that looked good but were cold. Calamari was more breading than squid. Meal took way too long- 3 hours. Very expensive for less than mediocre food. And I have eaten here many times past. Repeated nice calm complaints with our server did nothing to shorten the meal. Not a good night. I don’t plan on returning.

    Wonderful server Eddie; the food was hot, tasted great and I would've given five stars if we hadn't waited so long, but I have to say it was worth the wait. I had the chicken risotto, my husband had the halibut. Both were delicious! Overall the atmosphere was amazing. We say in the outside patio and there was lots of street noise, which the restaurant can't manage of course, and you should expect this if you sit in the patio. We'll be back for more!

    The ambience of the restaurant is what keeps us coming back. The outdoor dining area is really something special. The service was great. Unfortunately, the food was just OK. We went there for dinner last week for my wife's birthday. My wife and daughter ordered the fettucini with lobster tail. The noodles were freshly made but they were egg noodles vs fettucini noodles. The sauce was a spicy red sauce vs creamy alfredo. The plate had an overwhelming fish smell and my daughter who's an adventurous eater for a 12 y/o only ate a few bites ($45 plate). I ordered the spaghetti carbonara. The noodles were nicely cooked but the dish was a blob of noodles (tomato noodles), vegetables with chunks of meat ($25 plate). For the prices, I expected more.

    As always the food was delicious and the service exceptional. Our only complaint would be that they placed a baby in a high chair right behind my husbands chair in a main walkway and people (including servers) kept bumping into him. I eventually pulled the table so close to me I could barely move so he’d stop getting bumped.
