Service was horrible. Server had a lot of attitude and I almost want to say she made racial comments that made the group feel discriminated.

smaller than expected, great nighttime rooftop vibes, food average, drinks average. best if you want the good vibes and fun pictures by the pool. Covid safe :)

Manager/Bartender/server (apparently she is all three) was sloppy, dressed inappropriately - meaning stomach hung out and was just plain rude. Especially if you just ask a simple question. Will not be back. Oh and by the way, this was our first experience here.

This is a nice place, even more beautiful for the sunset. Customer service is not that good, we asked to be placed by the pool as we could see some tables but we told us that it was fully booked. 5 minutes later, two couples arrived and were asked if they would prefer to be seated by the pool or the bar. Like really ?

The service was extremely poor and the drinks were served in very shabby plastic glasses. Felt like I was drinking out of a red solo cup but paying $20 for it. The guacamole had no salt, it was very badly prepared.

Overall very disappointing.

Cute spot to grab lunch,
Pros:
Ambiance, cute, good drinks and great appetizers.

Cons: service was relatively slow and it wasn’t very busy.
The best things were chips & salsa and fries. Not a place to go for a filling lunch more of a grab drinks and some snacks.

Disappointed in being overcharged by the cost of 3 margaritas ($42) then having to engage in several discussions with the server about it. When I offered the solution of leaving the costs on the bill (since adjusting the bill was presented as an *issue*) and I'd include that as part of the tip -- the manager said she'd make the adjustment since I told the server *I wouldn't tip*. Ridiculous! That's not what I said nor was it what I was implying. In the end the bill was adjusted and we left a 20% tip (can't recall the amount). Not a place I'd visit again.

Not really what I expected. We had reservations at 8:45 and as they were walking us in they were telling us we need to order food cause the kitchen is closing and then before the food comes in they said last call for drink, we felt we were pushed the whole time.
Food was fair , the fries and nachos tasted old thou.

Great view but service was a bit poor because it didn't feel much welcoming. We checked-in around 6pm and they were already out stock on items off their menu. They did not have desert nor the melon punch bowl available.

Because of the covid obviously it will change, but the ambiance is all diffrent, the music is soo boring, i think they play that on purpose so people can leave faster, food selection very short, which is understandable, service ehhh, views is the only thing reason i would be back, gves us some upbeat music we need cheer at this time, stay safe!

We got to the place a little earlier than our reservation time but we were seated right away after getting our temperature check of course. We ordered 12 oysters because the first 6 was delicious that was really the highlight of our night after laughing to each other’s about how vibrant that night is. The ambience was great and the services was on point.
