Once again was a great place to dine. Recommend second floor balcony for best experience. Refused the first place they suggested as we would have been staring at each other on main floor with too much hustle and bustle of staff.

Balcony seating is the best.

The server was a bit over attentive. Multiple times she would interrupt our conversation for the most redundant things

As always, Joe Fortes did not disappoint. The food and service were excellent.

The restaurant can be pricey - $160 all-in dinner for two (drinks, salad, main, and dessert) - but if you know this going in, it's not a problem.

We were 7 in a group went out for a get-together dinner. The food was ok. Seafood was great but the not the best place for a good steak. Our server was the worst server ever. Didnt bother explaining to us the food we ordered, not even a smile from him. We weren’t sure why (was it because we were non-white)? At the end of our dinner we got our bill with a compulsary 18% gratuity included. What the heck? Never will come back to this Resto

The food and service was so great. They really went above and beyond with their recommendations and the piano music was a great addition. Would go back in a heart beat!
