Wonderful celebration after a long hard road to a real estate settlement! Great service, food, wine and the manager graciously gave us a free dessert to celebrate! WE will recommend and come back often.

We are from Centreville and frequent Sweetwaters and Coastal Flats. We were out to Gainesville to the REgal Cinema a week ago to see the "Unplanned" move since our theaters wouldn't show it. We saw your establishment and also my hairdresser had mentioned it was one of her favorites. Courtney at Tranquility. We loved what we ordered and will be back.

Very, very limited vegetarian options. In fact, they have a grand total of 1 vegetarian entree on their menu. Period. Zero vegan options without doctoring a selecting or cobbling a meal together from side dishes. I know it’s a grill, but I really think in this day and age and in a multicultural region that a restaurant should try harder to accommodate a wide array of dietary preferences.

This being one of our favorite places to eat, it once again did not disappoint. I ordered the Aged Ribeye and my wife had the Prime Rib. My steak was good, but not as stellar as I'm used to. But typically, I get the Chile Rubbed Del Monico. Our service was otherwise impeccable. Bianka did a great job, was extremely informed on the specials and was attentive without being overbearing. We enjoyed a dessert on the house as it was our anniversary, so we are thankful for management to provide that as an option. We will return without a doubt. What a great place to eat.

Server was forgetful and didn’t listen when we placed orders, continuously brought wrong items. Was too worried about being a jokester vs good service.

Food is overpriced

Restaurant was not busy, however, we were never given a designated server. We had 3 different people wait on us and it was as if they were doing us a favor or covering. Food was ok really nothing special. Husband had an overpriced steak and my chicken was tasteless and dry. This is our 2nd attempt to like this restaurant again but it’s not as good as when they first opened. Restaurant in my opinion is too dark.

Service and food were excellent. The special martini was incredibly delicious, but I couldn’t convince myself to spend another $11 for a second one. I guess I should go to the bar for happy hour next time, because I just can’t stop thinking about that drink!

I was highly disappointed and angry all weekend over the waiter bringing the check and saying "shall I split it down the middle". HE should NEVER assume that is what we want. Of course, our friends said yes! We has no opportunity to say "no"- separate checks! WHY?

Here is why: my husband and I did not drink any alcoholic drinks - our friends each had a martini -
so they were likely about $10 each? Then my husband and I each had meals under $19 - he had meatloaf and I had grilled chicken. My friends each had $27 steak kabobs.

So we ended up paying about an extra $35 for dinner! This has really angered me and I am really frustrated that the waiter would assume a split when the cost of each couple was so different! I can't get over this lack of sensitivity. He should always assume checks are separate when the cost of meals are so unequal.
