First all, we got there and were seated in the parking lot under a tent which was fine except that they put us directly in front of the DJ station where the music was SO loud that we couldn't even hear each other. I asked them to lower the music but that only lasted for 5 minutes. We ordered our meals and I particularly asked for my $30 ribeye to be cooked medium to medium rare and the butter on the side, came out well done, no butter on the side and no one to tell that to since we didn't see our waitress again. When she finally came back, she saw my steak (I ate it anyway because I didn't want to wait) and then the manager came out and offered me free carrot cake which none of us eat. I took a chance coming here on our first night out of the covid mess and it was mediocre to say the least.

It was disheartening to learn that your ribeye was not cooked to your specifications. It is my sincere wish to win back your confidence. We are eager to surpass your expectations. Please call us at 732-750-4400 and ask for Brittany so that we can discuss how we plan to rectify the situation.

Happy to find a local spot for outdoor dining on a Saturday afternoon. Our server, while friendly and polite, seemed inexperienced. I ordered a white wine spritzer & got a glass of white wine. My husband ordered a vodka martini with the shaker glass on the side & he seemed baffled.

I have been an avid customer for over ten years. I understand that we are in unchartered territory but It was an awful experience. The tables were not socially distanced and tables were out of control with behavior. We may be outside but we are still at a restaurant. Shame on the manger. Very disappointing experience after being on lock down during this this difficult time.

We ordered appetizers and a meal. After waiting 45 min the manager comes to tell us the food was ready and they are finishing making our app (sushi roll). So instead of bringing all the food at once they brought the apps and our meal was being held under heat lights for 1/2 hr. So needless to say the food wasn’t hot and it was dried out. The mgr comped us the meals but they should have just remade the meal so it came out fresh. We will never go back there again. Oh and the server was horrible. Didn’t see him for 45 min and didn’t even apologize.

The salad I ordered was good and ample. The salmon on my husband’s salad was a bit overcooked. The place has a “big box” chain appearance although it is well kept. Our waiter was friendly and helpful but I had to emphatically tell him we wanted to take it slow after he came for an order in what seemed like 3 times in 3 minutes.
