Waited over an hour for our food. Reservation was at 2. We just got up and walked out at 3:10. We were just getting water at 2:50. No mimosas. No food. No nothing. I will never be back.

We were sat 20 minutes after the reservation. The mimosas came 15 minutes after we ordered. Food came an hour after we ordered. They only had 1 server for the outdoor seating. He was nice and did his best. The food was decent but they could expand their brunch menu a tad. In their defense, there was a family reunion there but based on the number of open reservations the night before, they clearly weren’t prepared. I’ll give them one more chance. The view and the breeze from our table was nothing short of amazing.

The staff was extremely accommodating and the location is perfect! Our waiters on both nights were great and The fries here are amazing. However, it took almost an hour to receive food. The French toast was not cooked through and some of our dishes were cold.

Great ambiance, arrived early on a Sat at 5pm with reservation. Loved the view right by the edge of the 2nd level by the water. Loved the salmon with shrimp risotto! No wines by the glass, but enjoyed their Doctors Orders cocktail! Great time with friends! Wonderful server who was great at juggling tables with a smile and great under pressure who met our needs. Bummer about tuna poke app. not being available but overall great experience and highly recommend this gem!

The service was terrible. We were told of the time limit at the table, but no one took our order for 20 minutes. When we did get our food after a long wait, the chicken sandwich I ordered was just two chicken tenders on a piece of bread. Not sure how they pass this off to others.

It was a Monday night and they were short staff and out of entree's. If we knew when we arrived I would have gone to another establishment. I had a wonderful time two days prior. My out of town guest were feeling so so. I'm sure it was because of the staff shortage. I will return again. The food was fresh and good.

We had a reservation at 9 am. No one waited on us the whole time we were there. We stayed 30 minutes and realized no one around us had gotten their food OR drinks yet. The few people who did get waited on, their orders were messed up. They kept delivering them to the wrong people and I saw one woman send her food back because it was the wrong order.

The food is absolutely nowhere near restaurant quality. It is beyond overpriced for semi-cooked, subpar quality, mediocre-at-best tasting food. The tuna in the poke tasted old and of poor quality, and the tenderloin medallions (two tiny pieces, not even cut as medallions) came extremely over cooked on a bed of crunchy pasta and ice cold broccoli.

I am a repeat customer of your establishment. Every time I am there I leave feeling better than I arrived. In light of the pandemic and my concerns, I feel safe. From the welcome, to the amazing atmosphere, to the fine dining experience everything has been consistently superb. I’d like to especially single out Devante one of your servers who is one of the best servers that I’ve ever experienced in any establishment of this kind. I have been coming to your restaurant since 2020 and since the beginning Devante has been a top notch server. He represents FINE CUSTOMER SERVICE. I look forward to returning very very soon and experiencing your fine dining experience. Keep up the good work!! Alvin King

Miscommunication between the staff resulted in a lower level employee yelling at my boyfriend & I. While the situation was eventually rectified, that employee (Prince) was extremely out of line. Nick and Sean took care of us and turned the situation around.
