    Good happy hour menu with good selections. The main courses was not very good. The salmon and sea bass dishes didn’t taste very fresh. Fish tasted previously frozen.

    Not a good experience at all. I was very disappointed at their service and I'm Forced To Pay 16% Tips on an unacceptable service. The food was so so. The salad was Extremely salty, I can barely swallow it. The music was super loud, it hurts my ears. Overall I did not enjoy my Valentine's day dinner at all.

    Came here for the dine-out menu. The service and ambience were great. The food quality was just so-so. My portion of tooth fish was really small compared to others at the table, but after I complained about it, the waitress brought me two more pieces. Another person at the table was unhappy about his tooth fish being cold and unflavorful, but he didn't want to complain about it. The last two times I've been here the food quality was excellent, don't know what happened this time. Hope it will be a better experience next time.

    Our server was spectacular!! She was very informative, attentive, and make sure everything we ate or drink was to our satisfaction. Hubby and I choose the dine out menu. The appy, steak, fish was delicious and cook to perfection. The only thing I found it so-so was the dessert. It was good, but cz I'm not a sweet tooth kind of person, to me, it was a bit tad sweet. But overall, food was tasty and the service was fantastic. I would definitely go again even without the dineout.

    Dinner was very good. Beautiful presentation. Service was good but a bit rushed. Would have been nice to have time between courses. And have previous plates taken away before next course. Ambience could be better by lowering the lights. Far too bright to have an evening dining experience. Piano although nice was a bit loud

    Food is very tasty, we had the Christmas buffet. Only complaint is the food was a little cold as the lids were kept off. The decorations were minimal for Christmas, could have been better. The bar tender was a bit frazzled at first and you could clearly hear him complaining. I would go back as the food is good.

    We were a group of 8 people and everyone enjoyed their food. However, the 4 people who ordered sea bass commented it would have been better if it were deboned. Besides that, everything was great — delicious food, good value, good ambiance, excellent service.

    They had a choice of two-course set meals like they did during dine-out. The two prices were $35 and $39. It was a quiet atmosphere nice not to have to shout to the person sitting next to you. The food and server were great.

    I had reserved a table for 2 for my friend's birthday. The food was good, but on the same night, there was a company dinner who sat not too far across from us, and took 70% of the entire area. They were LOUD and made many announcement that i couldn't even hear myself talk.... I don't blame the company for booking the area, but the restaurant should not have accepted reservations on that same night for our people.

    Excellent service. Personable. Celebrated friend’s birthday and restaurant kind enough to write Happy Birthday on dessert plate and both Adam & Naang sang Happy Birthday to my good friend. So appreciated. Adam bartender greeter was great. He accommodated my ice coffee latte request. Delicious. Waitress Naang was warm, personable and suggested great food tips and always checked in at perfect timing. Calamari was excellent. Meatball slightly dry & spinach salad ok for the 3 course July menu. Steak was cooked to perfection as well as the dessert. Loved the ambiance and outdoor patio with comfy padded patio seating over other restaurants that are uncomfortable for Covid sensitive dining. Thank you. Will return again to try out Prime Rib Wed with family.

    For a fine dining restaurant the atmosphere was just not inviting. The space was small we felt like it was just an extension of the lobby and with the floor to ceiling window view of the communal pool. Our waiter was exceptional however the drink and food options were sparse as many items were not in due to a large group in the day prior. We had won our gift certificate which had the wrong address on it and even though we were required to call ahead to let them know we had the gift card and delivered it to our waiter, they failed to discount our bill. Thanks for the extension on the gift card but I doubt we will return.

    Was nice and quiet which is what we wanted as we were catching up with friends we haven’t seen for awhile . We were greeted warmly by a lovely gentleman and shown to our table . We weren’t really in any hurry . Food was decent we happened to get there as happy hour ended and I was able to get a cocktail from the happy hour menu Was nice we finished early but we were having a good visit and it was nice not to be rushed out the door . Food was adequate not earth shattering but very good . We all seemed to enjoy what we ordered All in all a pleasant experience and I would certainly go there again if I found myself in the area .

    The family went there for Mother's Day. For $75 each we got: 1. Argue with staff to not be seated in a dark corner at the bar. 2. Left over food from the previous seating - cold and dry. 3. Walk over to staff to get coffee and drinks. 4. Have staff drop a plant on our table that spilled - accidents happen. 5. Forced to pay 16% gratuity for staff who probably wish they were somewhere else. 6. Dessert was from the supermarket. 7. Eggs at the omelette station were from a carton box and not fresh. Oh, I paid the same for a Michelin restaurant on Valentines day.
