Impeccable! We also love the food but lately service has been an issue but not tonight. Everything was perfect!

We had to wait about 30 minutes for our reserved table, but once seated, food and service was very good.

We go to OBL 1 night a week and really enjoy our dinner and our friends there as well.
We love the OBL and it is our place to go every time we want a great meal.
Earl and his staff are great!

We went on Valentine’s Day and were seated right away. My friend ordered a blended margarita and I ordered a jalapeño margarita with salt. They brought back a pink looking drink over ice and my drink without salt. Apparently they don’t have a way to make blended drinks but the waiter did offer to change it. I ordered the scallops and then was told they no longer had them. I switched to the green Chile fettuccine with blackened shrimp and my friend ordered the bacon wrapped buffalo meatloaf. She loved her meal, mine was fine. All in all I think the waitstaff needs to have better communication with the kitchen and bar and update diners on what isn’t available right away. It was a pretty expensive meal for just ok food. I probably won’t be going back.

Our server was the BEST we had ever had! I WISH I remembered her name. But incredibly attentive in EVERY regard and everything was very speedy, getting our table, drinks, food, and tab paid out.
