    It was a very pretty setting, and the food was pretty good. I think the service was a little slow and maybe just needed more communication from staff to patrons.

    The dining room is absolutely beautiful, perfect lighting, tranquil enough to have a conversation without shouting and very chic and warm. The food was good but, portions were very small, and I’m not a huge eater. Service was very good but the kitchen was very slow, which was made doubly clear when we left and had to pay $30 for parking - it’s $18 with validation for the first two hours then bills $6 every 20 minutes. Dinner was $700 (including tip) for four people, including two rounds cocktails, four entrees, two appetizers and two desserts. Would we go back? Yes, but to take the sting out a bit we’ll not park at the hotel.

    So disappointed in this restaurant, it’s stunning and I loved the atmosphere but the food was terrible. My husband and I couldn’t believe it, appetizers very bland and my husband filet mignon was a joke. Just the piece of meat with no seasoning, no sauce, and barely anything else on the plate. He said the only thing that was right is the medium-rare part. Sadly Not worth it at all.

    First time here and had high expectations I started off with the bar choosing off the cocktail menu I chose the “bronze “ which was a white rum with apricot and egg white very delicious ! The food pricing based off the serving size of each portion I truthfully think is overpriced based off what I was served Me and girlfriends shared the hamachi which I asked our waiter if it’s a shareable size amongst 3 people he said “ yes “ Which came to only be a serving size of 3oz portion that was a little on the small side and good enough for 1 person , and on that the plate lack on flavor/ bland and needed acidity and salt Entrees each plate rounding about 30-40$ range I ordered the shrimp plancha and my friends ordered the skirt steaks , the skirt steak needed alittle more salt , the shrimp plancha was bland from start to finish when the waiter poured an aus jus over , lacked of flavor, shrimp was room temp to cold , ravigote was bland , the sides spinach and onion rings were ok. The service for recommending me another plate the arugula Farro risotto , which was delicious in flavor and taste. Overall experience if you’re looking for a place for good drinks and ambiance this will be your go too, for dining I’d advise looking over the menu before deciding to join ! Again thank you for your hospitality.

    Overall our group enjoyed our meal. It’s a beautiful restaurant with interesting food. It is a little overpriced and the service—while very friendly—was not particularly punctual nor did they check in to see how we were enjoying our meal.

    Absolutely fantastic - the food is lovely and even more because staff is amazing from adding people to the table last minute, suggesting alternative parking options, fantastic wine recommendations - yes maybe not the cheapest but totally worth it and then some
