Went for happy hour cocktails and dinner. Although the entree (veal limone) was good the combo of a prix fixe including an appetizer, was weak , I had a Cesar salad , which was a 4” bowl with a few pieces of lettuce and 4 croutons , the dressing on the side was from a bottle that’s it!

They also had a oyster special, blue points for $1.50 each ? They were actually west coast , dry and metallic .

The happy hour pricing on cocktails was half off, sounds good, however there is no one in Lauderdale by the sea who charges $18 for a cocktail .

Was very dissatisfied.

This place is like a mom and pop diner! Had to walk out and find another restaurant! The entertainment was like amateur karaoke! I would never go back to this place...

Went on Valentines Day and found would only serve a choice of 3 entrees. Service was not up to par for a restaurant of that price point. Food was underseasoned. Refills on bread or drink never offered. The piano player was very good.

I wish I was informed on their "limited" menu on Valentines Day (3 entrees) when I made my reservations.

Most staff wore their mask. One bartender did not use hers at all, and Managment seemed to not notice.
I asked her to lower her shield, and that lasted less than two minutes.

This place is a delight! Excellent service, food and ambiance. The only reason I gave 4 stars overall is because we did not have the opportunity to order a salad to have before dinner and would have liked to have one.

If you want plain old Italian, you would probably like this place. However, if you think this is a Steak & Seafood restaurant, do not waste your time. I should have known when the bread basket came and it was stale and had used butter containers in it! Yuck!

Our food & service were excellent. Currently, they have an extended happy hour which was awesome. We loved the live music. Sit at the bar tables if you like your music volume higher and in the dining room for more of a background music level. Their food does great for carryout too. We’ll be back!

The food did not justify the prices. Surf and turf was not good, although the short rib was tender and moist. The nicest thing was the ambiance and the piano music in the background. Next time a visit to the bar.

We had a good time and the meals were mostly fine. My steak was over cooked however and the replacement was tough (though I didn’t complain a second time) service and atmosphere ok but I found the prices high considering there are 5 star steakhouses nearby offering the same fare at a better price.

My rib eye steak had a lot of fat on it for a $48 piece of meat. I know rib eye has fat but I have never seen one like the one I had. Spinach was to salty and to much garlic.

I tried this after reading some Yelp reviews and thought I would give it a shot. I thought if they had the audacity to charge 50-80 for steak and have 350 bottle of wine options they were pretty serious about their restaurant’s success. I hope management figures out the food, service and value issues fast. I can’t recommend it.

Hospitality was good, but food was ok, they ran out of certain items on menu. Took food a long time to come out then it was not cooked right either. Place looks good inside and staff is nice but most likely will never go back.

We thought it was good food and atmosphere. Just think they are still working out the bugs in the new restaurant. Bar area needed more servers, since bar was packed.
