There was a wobbly table that we were seated at. They had us stand up and they attempted to fix the table while we stood at the center of the restaurant’s attention. It was such an embarrassing moment for me. They then sat us in a cold corner. It was loud as well. The food was good and the drinks were decent.

Always a cool experience but they haven’t made any interesting changes to the menu in over 5 years aside from removing the French fries and sliders. Service was ok..

It’s clear this is a a tourist destination and doesn’t care about local business but whatever works!

Honestly this was one of the cutest spots I’ve seen in a long time the food was good but the props were amazing lots of photo opportunities so bring your a game and honestly I feel like the price is increased due to the props not necessarily the quality of the food

Listen, the experience is everything. The presentation was to tier. The food was amazing. Everything tasted amazing. I recommend the salmon! The only downside was it is small and there was not enough table space, but they clear it for you if you need more room. Definitely a must go restaurant.

In town from Nola celebrating my son's bday. Decided in BG for thr experience! Loved the plating and lobster Mac was great, the filet Mignon cooked to perfection salmon was excellent too. The caramel sauce for the funnel cakes very good and the sauce for the popcorn shrimp was fantastic. The restaurant is small and the tables are cramped in there to capacity. The whole time we were there things kept falling. Water was spilled all over me and on to the floor when our food came out. I went home with a cold wet leg. They said sorry and offered me towels to wipe the water off my pants. When pulling your chair back you will definitely bump into another guest. Loved the food but not the atmosphere.

Food was good but deff over priced. I had much better steak somewhere else for fraction of the price. I asked for medium and my steak came well done. You can see in the picture that I attached. Alcohol was very over priced and no alcohol content what so ever. I had Reposado tequila which was $40 a shot. My fiancé had the "Diamonds are Forever" cocktail which tasted good but had 0 alcohol in it. My fiancé is a very light drinker. She gets buzzed with half a cocktail sometimes. She had 2 of these and still nothing. I heard the alcohol is in the popsicle that's on the drink but she finished those too. Nothing. I ordered the chocolate treasure for desert and while my fiancé was at the restroom I asked my waitress to put a candle on it so I can sing happy birthday for my fiancé, just a little surprise for her. So when my fiancé gets back the waitress says I will bring the desert with the sparkle on it now. Umm like thanks for ruining the surprise. When they brought it. As I was singing happy birthday to her and recording video with my phone the person struggled to turn the sparkle on and killed the entire video. When we asked them to bring another sparkle so that way I can turn it on myself and take picture with my fiancé they charged us $7 dollars for the d@$# sparkle. Unbelievable! Very unprofessional service. My waitress was no where to be found the entire night. I kept asking other waiters and waitresses for stuff. I spent $400 at this place tip included. And they have the audacity to charge me $7 for a candle/sparkle Shame on them. I shouldn't have left the $25 tip that I did. I js am not that person to not leave a tip.

Food here is very average almost boarders on not good. The only reason to go here is for the presentation of the food. It's only Instagram worthy and that's clear by every single table taking pics. I can see it being an "LA hot spot" but don't go here looking for great food.

Took husband for his 60th bday, it was our first time and I surprised him. He was very impressed and loved every minute of it. He is very picky and not easily impressed, he said he will definitely return. I highly recommend trying at least once. Who cares the tables are close together... we made friends all around us and even shared our dessert with the table next to us. Great vibe. Can't wait to return.

Nice for instagram opportunities but to noisy for an actual date. The displays are really fun but the food is not that great and options are limited. Personally the food was not good at all , I had to send it back. Speciality drinks are only limited to tequila but they do offer a full bar for regular drinks. They do not offer blinded drinks. I’d come back for a drink or two with friends . It was an overall nice experience.

This was a very fun and unique place to eat, and there were a-lot of unexpected surprises. The service was slow and felt a bit disorganized but the food was great and the total dinning experience made up for the poor service. I would highly recommend going here if you are looking for great food and an unusual dining experience

Ambiance was amazing. Smaller than expected but beautiful. Some of the staff were very friendly. Steak was better than a mastros steak. Presentation is amazing. Wish sides weren’t so small for the price. It is very pricy for the portion. One group made it extra loud in there but if they weren’t present the place was not loud at all. The music choices weren’t bad either. (First Timer)

Nice restaurant. Very crowded though, I feel as if they just jammed a bunch of tables into a small space. The food was really good and the drinks were good but it was sooo loud in there. I would go back because the food was good.

Overall it was a nice experience. Definitely worth going one time. Our steaks were mixed up and we didn’t realize it until half way. We just assumed that’s what the restaurant medium and medium well were. That was unfortunate. We also ordered one appetizer and two sides. The sauces for the appetizer we delicious but the sides as well as the entrees lacked flavor. The drinks were great. Services was great. The experience was worth it. I had also asked if they could do something special for a birthday and all they had was a small sparkler. That was a bit disappointing as well.

As for the overall atmosphere the table we had was quiet small and barely fit the plates. So sadly, we only got to experience the fun for a little while and asked for the extra stuff to be removed. The music was also very loud and we found ourselves yelling to communicate.

Might give it one more try.

Very interesting, novel, and delicious meals. We had the Boo G Pasta shrimp/crab pasta and the "Don't be a jerk chicken" chicken wings/fried rice. Sabrinatini mocktail for my grand daughters and Buddhalicious martini for me. Carnival Fun cakes for dessert.

This is an experience more than a meal. Perfect for a special occasion, or, in our case, NYE. Having said that, everything we ordered was delicious. Our waiter, Jesus, helped guide our ordering and was extremely helpful and accommodating, including helping us order for the kids (Mac n cheese to share) and gluten free for me. The highlight was dessert. Not easy to choose among the fantastical choices, but Marie Antoinette did not disappoint.

After being in such excitement to visit your restaurant for my birthday I was quickly presented with a disappointing experience. Our server gave a us very poor service from the beginning as his section seem to be very overwhelming for him. All while giving great service to the tables around us. My husband and I were being juggled between two servers. The first one who was very warm and welcoming and then taken over by another server who did not even care to introduce himself, give any recommendations, or any interaction what so ever. I was asked countless of times if I was getting another drink and after the third time of being asked I said, " maybe with dinner, I will look over the menu." When dinner came I was given a drink that I did not order. I never ordered another drink! But he insisted on me having another one. Long story short I was very disappointed in the service I was given and being in the service industry for many years I would not have given this type of service to my worse guest.
