The food is outstanding. The service was horrible. 3 people, we ordered a 4lb branzino, an 8 oz filet mignon, corn & brocolini to share. The server poured the sauce & capers all over the fish & plopped it on the table. The steak was not sliced. When you spend $450 you would expect the server to offer to plate your 1st serving of fish & sides.

The good: very attentive service and beautiful ambiance. Chilean sea bass is excellent, though I’d ask to sub a different sauce next time. Flash fried lobster tail was unique and a hit with our group, as was crab cake. Loved the “tater tots”.

The bad: the chopped salad was very plain and you couldn’t taste the dressing.

The worst: the peanut butter chocolate parfait was horrible. Literally the worst dessert I’ve ever had at a restaurant. Couldn’t even finish it, and that has never happened, even for my easy-going husband. Very odd (artificial) taste and texture. Disappointing note to end on.

The tuna tartare came with some atrocious and inedible crisps that should only be used as packing material. Overall the food was ok at best. We had a reso through Open Table for 8:00PM and weren’t seated until 8:45. The hostesses were annoying and kept over promising our table. Overall an annoying experience. We won’t be rushing back anytime soon.

I love this restaurant. It has only one drawback, it is not readily accessible for handicap. The staff was extremely accommodating in getting my 91 and 93 y.o. Parents with walkers down the front steps since the access ramp was quite a distance from the restaurant. The staff went above and beyond to assist. The city should allow a ramp to the front door.

I love the restaurant but the food this time was below average. I had Dover sole & it was sitting in a watery substance on my plate. I don’t think it was cooked all the way. Our waiter although efficient, he seemed very cold, a smile goes a long way, but we never got one.

We have eaten there several times. Regardless of what time you arrive, they don’t seat you until at least 30 minutes after your reservation. It is very obnoxious. We will not be returning

Great waiter. Fun. Knew everything about wine food and life.

Octopus yummy.

People at next table loud and drink. Ruined the experience. I wish management at restaurants told noisy obnoxious patrons to quiet down or leave.

As usual the food and service were fantastic. We started with the Lobster Morsels and the Grilled Octopus. Both were superb. I had the Dover Sole which is always wonderful. My wife had the Artic Char which she loved. Our daughter had the Bronzino which she really enjoyed.
We forced ourselves to have desert which we enjoyed.
A great evening.

Awesome food with spectacular service! We had the sea bass and it was scrumptious!
Their gelato for dessert was decadent!
Only issue for me is the music is a bit too loud even when there are few patrons, it seems a normal thing in most places. But the food is worth it!

Realizing it’s the 31st December with a full house ; our waiter was on the moon,probably expecting to go home : No bread until We asked for it; Our wine came after we had the entree ,the rice was somewhat cold and the lobster scarce. We tipped the waiter cause we’re probably coming back ,and We felt sorry for him but his job was a sorry one
