My husband and I went for my birthday and had a great time! There was live music in the bar and it was great! Service was awesome and food is outstanding. The wine list is also the best around! I’ve been a total of 3 times and loved each time. We will definitely be going back as soon as possible.

We went for a birthday meal with friends. We sat on the patio—it was beautiful and quiet. We enjoyed a complete meal with starting cocktails, appetizers, salads, dinner, and dessert. We also had wine service. My only complaint would be that we did not have attentive service on the patio, but I imagine that the server had additional tables inside. Otherwise, the food was great and we had a lovely time!

The service was slow. Ordered the filet mignon for both me and my date. I wanted well done and my date ordered medium well. The steaks came back rare. We sent the steaks back and it took an additional 20 minutes to get them back. Meanwhile the rest of our food was getting cold. It was my girlfriend’s birthday and I was hoping for a better experience

Food was excellent but our server was in too much of a hurry. He spoke too fast to be understood and his continuous flitting back and forth between tables was very disconcerting. Prefer wait staff that are in sync with the relaxed vibe that the restaurant is known for.

It has been a while since I have been here but it is everything I remember. It is a little on the expensive side but it is kind of expected. Everything was cooked perfectly and there was even an off-menu recommendation of creamed spinach (that was amazing).

Went there for my wifes birthday and everything was absolutely fantastic. we had made areservation and they met our need for a table not a booth without any suggestion of it being a problem. The steaks, potatoes and veggies were cooked perfect and had a great flavor. Never had a house salad so great and my wife had the crab bisque, awesome. She had the 7 layer coconut cake and I had the NY cheesecake both were awesome. The service was awesome, our waiter was great and took time with us. They made her special day even more special. Thank you, we will be back.

Went online to reserve my table for my girlfriend's birthday. Accommodations were terrific as was the restaurant AND the waiter Ronald S. He was SO helpful and suggestive that helped make this night into a terrific one. First time for my friend as well as myself and will return again soon. Honestly its the best steak I've had at any eatery. Wonderul!! She did have swordfish and doubt that she would have again but everything else was just wonderful.

Maybe it was just what I ordered, however, I was not impressed with the Ahi Tuna or the Crab Bisque. I assume their steaks is what you should order. Like the way the restaurant looks but my experience was not good.

the food and service were excellent. there were 2 drawbacks to the evening - the first is where we were seated, as it was just across from a group that may have been overserved and were very LOUD to the point I took my hearing aid out. the second was the quality of the cocktail our daughter ordered. in her opinion, it was unacceptable and she left it on the table. $11 for a 'speciality' cocktail that was not up to standards. would we return, yes. would we recommend this restaurant to friends, yes, with the caveat about the drinks.

Our server Karen was excellent. The food was great. However, the Hostess at the front desk was extremely "put out" when I requested a different table that was quieter. We had folks in our party with hearing issues and the first table was too noisy. We had just been seated at the first table so there was no food, etc... to move... Also, the restaurant was not that busy.... There were 3 or 4 employees just standing at the front desk...

At first I thought she was joking with me when she made a face, sighed and rolled her eyes.... I expected a smile and a courteous... "No problem'. But that did not happen.

Do you really want the first person your customers meet to be rude? I did not get her name... but she was the front desk lead on Friday evening 8/31 @ 7:00PM.
