    Meal was really spectacular. I had the filet mignon. Cooked perfectly. You could tell it was a nice quality steak. The Mrs. Had the crab legs and while a little more than we may normally spend they were worth it. Great desert. Good drinks. Nice place inside. Watching and listening to the chefs work was fun too. Highly recommend.

    Restaurant was crowded. We were seated in a nice room, had a teriffic waiter that was very personable, with wonderful suggestions for food and drink. He may have been in training, but was doing a wonderful job. A woman behind him was trying to hurry him up. We understood, the restaurant was busy. Prior to being seated, we were in the bar. Busy. Drinks were well made, service was almost non existent. It took over 15 minutes to get a drink after it was ordered, and even if the drink was 1/2 full we were asked at least 6 times if we wanted another. We were celebrating two birthdays from two East Coast guests, and although the restaurant was told, not even a "happy birthday". There are many other restaurants in town that we have celebrated at, and maybe a candle or birthday song. NOTHING. Food was good, portions were very small for the price. I come here often but was very disappointed this visit. The bill was over $245.00 for four. Still mulling it over...not one mention of "happy birthday", but at least six asks of several half full drinks if we wanted another. No. Do not plan to return with guests. Have been there at least once a month, no more. You let me down big time.

    2.5 hours to get good our food, which was average at best. Much better options nearby.
