The only reason why I couldn’t give a 5 star is because we were rushed to order n throughout our meal. We reserved the last seating for the night but was rudely rushed. I would go back but definitely not as the last seating for the night. I informed the waitress it was our first visit so we needed time to look over the menu. She gave no “newbie” walk through of the menu (which would’ve helped her ). I never got my birthday dessert I ordered for my husband n since we were rushed I just said forget about it. Other than that we enjoyed everything else!

Had reservations, waited 5 minutes. Waitress was awesome, food was great; never had a bad meal here. The only complaint would be how very loud it is in there.

My fiancé and I were celebrating Valentine’s Day on the 15th. Service was phenomenal, we were in and out in under an hour. Food was fresh and hot. We took dessert home to eat. Everything was great, would definitely recommend.

We were nervous when we got there on how crowded it was. However, we got seated right around our reservation and the food and service was excellent. The restaurant is very efficient and doesn't sacrifice on the quality of the food. We will definitely return.

Food was good but it became annoying that the bus boy kept trying to take my plate away when I was still eating. They shouldn’t be clearing until everyone at the table is finished their meal. Additionally my husband had to get up and get a fork off another table since after salad they cleared both forks. Our waitress saw him do that and never came over to the table to Ask if anything else was needed. We had to ask the bus boy to have our server come over because we wanted another glass of wine
Terrible service for the price of their food

I have dined here more times than I can count and the food is consistent and always delicious! You will not find a better deal for a better meal for lunch anywhere else in the area. The servers are always friendly and I look forward to each and every visit. I also love coming in for dinner and happy hour. If you plan on happy hour get in early! It fills up fast (because it’s that good!) The long hots are a must each visit!

I was shocked over how busy they were at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon. Service was slow due to the volume and the food was just OK. We got our money's worth for sure but the food wasn't memorable.

A very delayed Christmas get together! Our waitress was Maria. She was super. So attentive and explained everything we asked.
We shared the Buffalo Shrimp and Egg plant Meatballs. Both were out of this world. The Crab cake Benny with home fries was delicious as was the shrimp and crab in butter sauce.

Service is usually better and the hostess is short with me. She welcomes everyone into establishment nicely but with me i get a “yes” while i am at desk? Doesn’t say may i help you or even hello to me. I waited for a friend so I know 100% how everyone else is welcomed. I do not appreciate her rudeness as I frequent here with family/friends.

I’ve been there many times. Always good food. They burned my wife’s 40 dollar filet not once but twice! After waiting to have the filet cooked a second time , the filet comes out after a long wait and every one was finished, and you guessed it, it was burned again. Ruined my wife’s birthday dinner.

It was very very busy there. Even with a reservation, we had to wait 25 mins to be seated. People were seated in the bar area quicker than we were in the dining area. We always order the same thing, the Sinatra-well done. There was a lengthy wait for the food (not because we asked for well done either) because the meat was pink throughout. I sent mine back. My husband ate his. My mother in law ate some (around the edges) and said she would take hers home and cook a little more. Once I got mine back, it was delicious. I overheard someone say that they were hosting 2 funerals there (repass) but I still wouldn’t expect that many issues. I was annoyed but as many times that I’ve been there, I’ve never had issues. So this one bad trip wont stop me from coming back. But it was definitely enough of an inconvenience to mention.

Outstanding food and lovely room. However, I called to verify reservation and reminded person on phone it was a birthday dinner. He said we got it sir. But nothing came of it. No little cake, not even a candle on dessert we ordered. A disappointing ending to a great meal.
