Wonderful change of pace for us.
Walked right up to hostess sound, gave name and reservation time, we were seated immediately.

Our waitress Liz (I believe) was attentive and thoughtful.

Excellent experience.

Great meal, waiter was terrific. We were seated next to a big party which made it very difficult for our 89 year old stepmom to hear.

We came to the restaurant without knowing we’d need a reservation. The restaurant did not seem busy, so I asked the hostess if I could make a reservation and was told that there were none. We went back out to the car, pulled up the Open Table app and made a reservation for Bravo for a half hour later. Sigh.

Again, the meal was terrific and service was great.

We scheduled this reservation on Open Table and specifically requested to eat outside due to the increased number of COVID-19 (Delta variant) cases in the area. When we entered the restaurant and spoke to the hostess, we reminded her of our reservation for an outdoor table. She then indicated the restaurant was doing maintenance outside and no tables were available outside. We didn’t see maintenance going on. This was extremely frustrating and I didn’t know if this was a miscommunication between Open Table and the restaurant or bad luck. We were then seated at a table that was not able to be socially distanced and served by some staff wearing masks and some mask-less staff. I almost left but my companions weren’t in agreement. In the future, I will call the restaurant to see if they are actually providing outdoor seating so that I can make a better decision as to whether to dine there.

The reception desk has been underwhelming for quite some time. Just don’t expect anyone to greet you with much friendliness or enthusiasm and you’ll be fine. The servers are mostly all great and the bartenders are always super-friendly. The food is worth ignoring the consistently “frosty” reception.

We wanted a later reservation time and were told it was very busy, they were booked solid. When we left (at the time I had requested) the restaurant was practically empty and they were telling a walk-in couple there were no available tables. It was evident they were very short staffed...so they should tell the truth. My salmon was just OK, not the usual.

What a great hidden place. I meet a date here with reservation, and it was great from the moment I walked in. Staff was professional and welcoming. Our waiter was excellent, I never had to ask for refills, and he was on question every time. The setting was romantic, I did not have to yell, to talk with my date. The food and drink were fantastic!

Food tasted like it was cooked from frozen. Got seated in the corner by the bathroom and it seemed like we were forgotten about until I spoke up. Did not get service until about 20min of being there. Food was drastically overpriced and wine wasn’t even chilled and tasted old. Save your time and money and go somewhere else. Or don’t eat at all cause that would be better than going to this trash restaurant.
