Our server was amazing!!!!!!!! The food was great. If it wasn’t for that we may never come back.

The carpet was so sticky and gross.
There were so many fruit flies that you had to constantly wave your hand to move them as you ate it was almost like you were outside.
Maybe you should spend a little money getting your carpets cleaned or replaced and that may help with those fruit flies that were everywhere.

Also, the west windows behind your bar the glare from the sun was ridiculous. I can’t believe you’ve been in business this long and nobody has complained, if you’re sitting at the bar you’d never be able to see anything and it glared into our eyes for at least 45 minutes at our table in the center of the room.

However, the menu you did receive should have not been reused as we toss all menus after they hit the table. Please contact Ellyn (AM) 480.429.5426 to discuss your visit further

Six in our party to celebrate a 21st birthday. Best appetizer was the filet mignon meatballs. Rice bowls and macadamia crusted chicken were both very good. The big surprise was a three slice brownie tower served warmed with a very generous serving of ice cream.

Never been there before. Server didnt seem to happy to be there. 2 servers were on break so we sat out in patio area. i heard our server telling the table next to us , Guests asked id if it was happy hour all day Sunday. Server replied no but do you want to still eat here or are you leaving. I was floored by his response. Made the rest of my visit a little awkward. Food was alright we all got a lil sick later that night from it. Service was cool but nothing over the top at all. There was nothing at that restraunt that would make me come back. Also your hostessess were all over the phone when we arrived. And seemed bothered we were a little early for our reservation. Ill be writing a yelp and google review in this visit as well. Overpriced for rudeness

It was way too loud. We were seated next to a bachelorette party and another birthday party and it was obnoxious. We came there for date night and could barely hear each other over the sound of the other patrons. Definitely not a great atmosphere.

Our steak came back too done and we had to send it back. The manager and server were great and comped that dish.

But overall, the experience felt like an Applebees or a TGIF with a much higher price tag. Won't come back.

Our server and the food were excellent. One member of our party had strict food allergies and the waitress was very reassuring and informative about precautions.

The low ambiance rating is because it was VERY hot in the restaurant. You could feel it right when you entered the front door. Then we were seated in the outer room with all the large windows which normally would have been nice, but this room was even hotter. It was pretty miserable...

We have been eating at your establishment for years, Sunday had always be been all day happy hour. We were very disappointed to order our regular and received our bill. Imagine our shock when it was over $80.00.
The waiter never mentioned that you no longer have he happy hour on Sundays. We will not be back due to the lack of information. The table behind us left also after their waitress informed them that you no longer offer happy hour Sundays.

We arrived 15 minutes early and were told we'd have to wait to be seated as if they were packed. When we were taken to our table it was dirty. We asked the host to clean it and the benches. When he left after cleaning the table it was still dirty so we cleaned it. Our drinks took about 20 minutes and the food 30 minutes to come out.

We understand being undermanned. You should know it's going to be a long wait and it's not up to par for the price. They must step up their game if they want to stay open.

Our reservation was for 12:45p and we were seated promptly. We were there to celebrate a birthday and see a family member off to the airport (4p flight) and figured we had plenty of time. First hiccup, the drinks we ordered from the bar never arrived (waited 10 min after non-alcoholic drinks arrived to inquire) our waitress (who was very nice) had to check and get them sent out. The appetizer we ordered, the Brainiac, was taking forever to arrive. So we inquired of our waitress, who upon checking on it let us know that the chef was juggling alot at once and accidentally burnt it and it would take an hour to remake it. (seriously??) We passed. It seemed to take a REALLY long time to get our food out, as we were watching the people who came in after us get their orders. Ours finally arrived. The food it's self was good. We all agreed my Macadamia Nut Chicken was the favorite. Since we were there for a birthday we ordered dessert. 4 different types. We were notified they were out of the bread pudding, the waitress was very apologetic about it. We watched as other table got desserts while we sat there. We started getting nervous as it's now after 2:30p. After waiting 15 minutes the desserts arrived (all but the chocolate cake which we were told was being frosted). The desserts were okay. We all agreed the Butter Cake is the only one we'd get again. At 2:45p we had to ask for our check. Half the family left so that the flight wasn't missed and we agreed we'd settle up later.

Although I understand we were a party of 8, I would say the service (not necessarily the waitresses fault) was extremely slow. The entrees were good, but for a meal that came to over $275 for the family, I think we'll go elsewhere next time. I do want to note that they did give us a $15 discount for the burnt appetizer and lack of dessert (though we had to point out they still charged us for the appetizer so they could remove it).
