Our bartender, Raul, was very engaging and helpful. We decided to stay at the bar because we enjoyed his company so much. The drinks were well-balanced, and the house wine was actually really tasty. The food was fantastic! We all loved the dishes we ordered. I had the short ribs and it was perfect. We will definitely be back.

Their NYE menu was 2x more than their regular menu, and there was NO indication of a different menu on their website, this app, or even at the entrance before we sat down.

This place has always been a favorite when we go to an event downtown (Sharks, Christmas in the Park, etc.). Never disappoints.

Our server was great. We had a large dinner party and he was able to serve our table and the entire restaurant all by himself without delays in our orders. We were there to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday and he made an extra effort to make sure we were taken care of.

I’ve dined here several times and find the food and service very consistent, which is why I continue to come back with more friends and family. The staff is friendly, attentive and accommodating.

Food was so so and service was very abrupt and not at all polished. Almost like we were bothering the server.

I was looking forward to sitting on the patio- but it was booked by a private party that night and unavailable. My crab stuffed salmon was SO DELICIOUS!!!! However, our food took a VERY long time to be served.

The food was good but the restaurant is a bit run down. The tables and chairs are very worn, most of the chairs were torn. Nothing special a bit pricey for the style of the restaurant. Looks Nothing like the pictures on open table.

Inexpensive. Great service. Go for cocktails. Food was unfortunately not very good.
But we came with a large group and the servers kept our drinks flowing.

Not half bad. Two stories, overlooking Second Street trolley. Almost no one there on Sunday evening. Full bar, and can’t go wrong with the food quality. I’d try it again.

Went for mothers day my son and i ordered the filet. My husband had the ahi. Ours was fabulous. My husbands ahi was over cooked and tough, but cold? Since the restaurant was mostly empty (we went early) it should have been perfect! Ahi is a 50/50 experience. So this time not good!

The waitress was exceptional. Hostess friendly! It was clean and everythin else was perfect!

Great place for meeting with friends.
Relatively to other restaurant in the area - pretty quiet ambient noise.
2nd floor has nice table for a more romantic / couples dinner.
