Marco did a good job for us today Pamela kept checking in on us restaurant manager always very pleasant to us only complaint is a large party of 32 people was allowed to sing and create havoc with no mask on a large part of the restaurant no mask in sight not a good thing in this environment but we were on the other side the restaurant so did not feel like we were at risk

Had a reservation. But still had to wait 30 mins to be seated since all usable tables were occupied. A reservation is a reservation. My table should have been waiting for me.

I had such high hopes for this place but definitely not worth the money. Overpriced steaks and not cooked properly. The shrimp sanfranciso was terrible. The shrimp tasted like dirt. The noodles were over powering with garlic. The Ceasars salad was drenched with dressing.

Food was great. Our server was slow to our table and slower returning with water refill and to-go box. It was our lunch hour and time was limited.

The food was good nothing spectacular. The menu is limited now, but we understand why. The drinks we had were not the best. I had the raspberry cosmo and it had almost a medicine fruit flavor so I wouldn’t get that one again. Our server wasn’t the best, they kept calling us kids and questioned our IDs but we are both older than 21 so it was frustrating not being treated like adults.

Our favorite place to have Sunday lunch! We order our favorite combination . A delicious California Dreaming salad and fried crab claws served at the same time. Our server was a polite efficient young man. The croissant bread pudding with ice cream is hard to resist and I’m able to do from time to time.

Excellent! We go here often for a great dinner. Service was spot on. Only complaint is they have taken chicken Parmesan off the menu! This will impact how often we go as this is the only dish my son will order.

I wouldn't recommend this place to a friend. I was excited to eat here until we were seated in a booth by the main entrance. I reserved a table on the inside of the restaurant not the outside. It was about 45 degrees outside. Everytime someone came in the air blew our way. We told our waiter about it and he said, " I know the people that were here before yall said the same thing." I though to myself why would you sit another family in the same area if it was a known issue? The food may have been ok if it would have stay hot enough to eat. We ended up taking our food home instead. When I pay almost $100 to eat in an establishment, I should receive top of the line service in all areas. Very dissatisfied costumer.

Wife and I had a very good experience recently at this fine restaurant.
The service was great thanks to Lynn, and the food (steaks) were cooked to perfection.
Many thanks go out to all the staff that we came in contact with that helped to make our evening very enjoyable.
See y'all next time.
Tip: Make a reservation to avoid waiting.

I was skeptical at first, it was soo busy on Valentines Day you could barely get in the door. However we had reservations and couldn't even check in. By the time we made it to the desk it was 3 mins before out check in time. They told us they were a little behind on reservations so wait for a text to let us know the table was ready. We hd reservations at 6:15 our table was ready at 6:17. That was perfect, we had a great table, great server, great service, and great food. Everything was perfect we didnt have to ask our server for anything he had it already coming to the table he was so prompt. Needless to say we tipped him well and left a note for him. The ladies (me and my daughter) were given a flower upon our exit. I will definitely dine here again and reserve before coming. Absolutely best service couldnt have a better Valentines day dinner.

I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is good along with the service. I usually order the prime rib , medium rates, house salad and creamed spinach. Unfortunately, the prime had been overcooked earlier in the day and the didn’t have the 6 hours to redo it. The manager was kind enough to explain in person.I settled on the New York strip which was nicely seasoned and cooked to perfection. As always, I will be back.
