Food was outstanding as always. Service was nice. We were looking for a relaxing drawn out meal and we weren’t rushed at all.

Tammy is a great waitress. Food was, as always, very good. Would love to have the cheese recipe for the pretzel bites... We had a great time

Sea bass was much smaller than normal and shrimp added to steak was not as plentiful as expected for the money.

We love everything about this place and how they are doing business during the pandemic, except we wish the patrons would mask up a little more when not eating or drinking.

The food was delicious. Steaks done exactly as ordered. But the BEST part of our evening was the level of service offered by our waiter Joe!
Being versed in Fine Dining, Joe
showed me some small details that
often go unnoticed.

It’s our special place to go when we want to celibate and treat ourselves to a wonderful evening of good drinks, good food, good atmosphere and good service. We can only come a couple times a year since we live an hour and ten minutes away.

Our server, Emily, was very friendly and did an excellent job. She seemed to know exactly when we needed a refill or had a question. The food, as always, was outstanding. We were vary pleased with the safety precautions in place for COVID. We will be back.

The food was amazing. If you are wondering what to eat you really can't go wrong with the filet and crab jar. Really anything under the seafood menu is amazing. Don't forget to get a side of seafood risotto.

Beautiful venue, great service and the food is outstanding. It can be dark for some, the light over the table is almost adequate but adds to the ambiance.

I got 2 martinis. There was no alcohol in them. Portions were very small.
The wedge salad ridiculously small. How much is Iceberg lettuce? Our bill was $150 not worth the money. I can understand business is slow but, you don’t want to loose your good customers. We love Martinis. Hope things get better.
