    Very high prices. Food was good not great. The waiter was nice and helpful. Probably won’t go back based on the cost of the meals. Make sure you look up the full menu and not the preview through OT. Hostess never updated our reservation so now we are being listed as a no show…

    Carlos was excellent as a server. Unfortunately the food left a lot to be desired. NY Strip- full of fat and tough. Poke bowl was all rice. Wave Roll was impressive looking but tasteless. Appetizers were good. Calamari and meatballs. The quality definitely did not warrant the price. $$$$$

    Made reservations for Easter brunch. Ordered mimosa’s but the server came back and informed us that they are out of champagne. Not much of an ambience and the tables are were not cleaned well. Food was overpriced for what you get. $36 for a chicken fried steak and an extra $9.99 for what was supposed to be a stack of pancakes. When the pancakes arrived, they were nothing more than 3 reheated frozen mini “Eggo” pancakes. Never in my life have I been served frozen pancakes in a restaurant before. Fastfood hotcakes blows them out of the water!

    For a chain restaurant I think they have priced themselves out to high. $25 for a sushi roll is extra. Service however was great. Our server was excellent! Attentive and engaging.

    We dined on a Friday evening. I had to change my reservation to add 1 more, and the adjustment was done without a hassle. The waiter was very patient and accommodating. The food was creatively prepared, nicely plated, and entertaining to the palate. The dishes are put together thoughtfully. Don’t come here looking for 2000 calorie dreadnought bombs. Expect classy dishes at a moderate price. I cannot comment on the meat dishes, as I did not order anything with meat.

    My waiter got 2 bigger party’s and never came back to my table. A half hour went by and I hadn’t seen him. I had to go to the front desk to pay my bill because he stopped paying me attention. Usually the service is better here. But this waiters service sucks. Waiter was a guy with glasses and a ponytail.

    This place is super expensive and the food and service do not match the prices. We paid $22 dollars for an avocado egg roll appetizer that came out within minutes and they tasted like an imitation version of what the Cheesecake Factory does but not as good and double the price. Food portions were small and not well seasoned. Average dessert was $17 and they only had three available on their menu. We took a pass. This was my first time coming here. I expected to pay more but I also expected to have a great meal.

    The food has mixed reviews. I purchased the Surf & Turf Filet with Crab Oscar and chili pepper green beans. Overall, it was delicious. But the portion size left a lot to be desired, particularly given the typically exorbitant price of Surf & Turf. My wife had the Rainbow Roll sushi. There is nothing pleasant to say about it. Her comment was it tasted like grocery store, refrigerated sushi. It was t fresh. It was fridge temperature cold with little flavor. It was also incredibly expensive for what was a typical rainbow roll. We also had the seared sea bass sliders and the pretzels & butter. Both were good. The cucumber salad on the side of the sliders was very good. The service was meh. Our server disappeared for a lengthy period of time despite the place being relatively empty. It wasn't until I discovered a "summon" button on the table computer display that he eventually came back. Lastly, the restaurant lacked character. It was blah inside. As if I was pulling into a hotel restaurant on the main floor of the Hilton. The manager did discount the meal because if the bad sushi. But overall, we weren't impressed.

    Mop the bathroom floors, get new hostesses, lower prices by 10%, stop using fireball in a $16 old fashioned, don’t burn the already dried out chicken, make your sushi less fishy, and maybe we will come back. Making it that easy for kids to buy the bs $3 app on your crusty tablet is a bit of a cheap trick too.

    We ordered the New Years Eve special, Prime rib and Shrimp (surf and turf). For $49, the steak was the thinnest prime rib I've ever seen. The shrimps on a skewer were over done. Dad got 22oz porterhouse at Longhornes the other day and it was $42 with a salad and big baked sweet potatoe. I was disappointed that the night cost us $280 for 3 people with only 2 bar drinks between us.

    It was not as good as in the past. Feel like it was soooo much more expensive and there was no alcohol involved. They didn’t even have enough menus so they had really small photocopies and appetizers came out 2 minutes before food The kicker was the waitress smelled like a cloud of marijuana. It didn’t start that way so she much have been smoking at work. I know it’s legal now but give me a break!
