Hello Betty was good enough, nothing spectacular. Margaritas were made with a sugary mix, nothing felt particularly done with detail nor was it horrible either. Our server Chris was super awesome.

Food was good but our server was rarely at our table. We would have had more drinks and dessert but it took so long between our table being cleared and her coming back we did not feel like sticking around and wasting more time. I had put on our reservation we were celebrating an engagement. I booked the reservation and it was meant to be a surprise for my brother and future sister in law but the manager asked my brother if we were celebrating anything. My brother said no since he did not know about me writing that note. Earlier I was the one to respond when the manager originally asked if we were the table with a reservation. It would have been nice to have had the celebration we were looking for on our last night of vacation. Makes me question returning to the restaurant next time we are in town.

We brought out 3 littles (6, 3, and 1) and had a wonderful dinner! Very casual, great happy hour. Open format restaurant so I never felt like my kids were bothering other people. Great food and cocktails! Our waitress was amazing. She made it such a relaxing night! Highly recommend this for families with kiddos or even people without kids!

Service was okay, waited a while to get seated even though we had a reservation. I called and tried to make a reservation and was told they had no openings. I then went on open table and got a reservation. Then when we finally got seated and it took 10 min to be greeted by our server

I had made a reservation on Open Table, but when our friends arrived and asked for our reserved table they were told that the restaurant did not take reservations. When I arrived, I showed the reservation on my phone to the receptionist who miraculously then said we could have a table. Our friends were at the bar and had been told a table would not be available for 35 minutes--and most interesting than anything, there were many, many open tables that never had occupants even through our entire dinner, So, we did not have a good start here for our first time (and we have friends who have had very similar experiences), but the food and service was good once we were seated.

Our server, Crystal, was terrific. The food was delicious - especially the local fresh-catch swordfish. Good craft beer selection. Overall a great night out. We will be back soon.

Had a party of 12 including kids which is always a challenge. Server (Jen) and team were so accommodating and made us feel so welcome. Food was excellent and good value. Would recommend this to family and friends.

First time being there. Was a group of 10 for a bday. Got put in the corner which had no air circulation and it was blazing! Only downfall. Service was on point as well as the food. Loved how friendly everyone was. Food was so delicious! Will definitely be back!

I took my wife and my two y/o daughter for brunch on Mother’s Day. My wife and I ordered the same fish on Mother’s Day special menu and grilled chicken + fries for my daughter. The fries had way too much salt, my fish was so dry falling apart and super salty, my red rice was dry and bland. Nobody asked me how my food was, so it makes me think they know the food sucks. Don’t eat at this place! I wasted $22 on an yellowtail dish. The bar is nice and the upstairs view is amazing!

They got our large party in for a reservation on a busy day. They had some vegan options for my friends, good cocktails, and everyone liked the food.

We were a group of 8 including 2 children. The staff was quick to seat us and get our drink order. They checked on us often and were very efficient taking our order and getting food right

A local friend recommended this restaurant and it was a frustrating experience. The service was extremely slow. I think it took 20 min to get drinks and the rest of the service followed as slowly. It was freezing inside which made it uncomfortable also. The clam chowder soup came out first but not everyone got crackers. The waitress said she’d bring but never did and we were worried the soup would be cold if we waited much longer. Our waitress was unpleasant so maybe she was just having a bad day.

We had a party of 12 people. The age ranged from 3 years old to 70's. They were able to seat us just fine and everyone was very happy with the food they ordered and we had a very nice time.

We have been there a few times for a friend's birthday and it has always been a great time. We are always a large group and never have any issues. They keep the bubbly flowing and we never feel judged :) Very friendly staff. We love to dine in the main room but then love love the rooftop deck for drinks and the amazing view after brunch! Close to a reasonably priced parking lot and we got lucky with some street parking.

Service was very bad. We had to ask multiple times for drinks, kids food didn't arrive on time and the birthday dessert came with a candle but they didn't have a lighter until 10 min later.
