    The flavor of the food was excellent. However, what I received did not match the description on the menu. This occurred with the main dish as well as the dessert. For the main dish the grouper was supposed to be on a “bed of spinach and farro.” There was only ONE TINY leaf of spinach, the size of my pinkie fingernail. I asked the server when the dish was placed where the spinach was. I thought it might be buried under the farro and sauce. My friend ordered the same thing and she had 2 tiny leaves. Then the larger piece of fish was slightly undercooked. To conclude the meal we ordered dessert. The description for the crème brûlée stated “with fresh strawberries on top”. They forgot the strawberries! I was not impressed especially since this is supposed to be one of the top rated restaurants in town.

    Food preparation and service - outstanding! The venue is lovely - perfectly appointed. Only issue - no shades on the door and side windows - the glare was terrible as the sun was setting. Over an hour we could not sit on one side of our table. Also suggest - more options are needed as the menu had very limited choices. Would definitely come back!

    While the ambiance and service were superb, the menu lacked variety in terms of entrees. There was a limited selection available.

    We had a reservation for 7:15 on Friday. We were seated immediately. Our food did not come to the table until after 9:00. They apologized for the wait time, but this was still disappointing.

    Brunch was lovely. They have changed the menu, however, from what is posted online, so just be aware that the offerings are slightly different. All of the food and beverages we had were delicious (omelets, biscuits & gravy, burger, Alamite plate, coffee, mimosas, espresso martinis). We will definitely be back. The only challenges we had were with the level of service. Beverages and food were slow to arrive - it took at least 15 min for beverages and food took over an hour. We were only a party of 5 and the restaurant wasn't slammed, so I'm not sure what was going on. Another party was seated after us and they were served fairly quickly and were done with their meal and gone, before we even received our food. Also, we had to request refills on coffee & mimosas. And our server did not come to check on us after our food was served until about 15 min later - a little late if we needed something. Overall, our meal lasted 1.75 hours. Luckily, we were not in a hurry.

    I was honestly disappointed! The drinks were good, as were the apps. Our main course was overcooked and lacking flavor. There is significant potential for improvement.
