They gave me a hard time using a Groupon on Valentines Day. The server and manager said it was a holiday, and they had to charge me the full price. I showed them the Groupon stating that the only time it could not be used was during Happy Hour. I went back and forth multiple times with the server and manager regarding this, until the manager finally said the Groupon went through. The food is expensive, it was not worth the price as the dinner was supbar. The appetizers were ok. Overall, I would say that this place is not worth your visit.

Appetizer came out same time as salads. Seemed to be a problem getting the food out and waiter was ver inattentive.

Bread was brought from store and not even heated in oven. Low class. Tuna was from frozen and for the price I paid it should have been fresh. You are better of at Friday’s or Chili’s for half the price and better food. Avoid at all cost

The atmosphere was nice, yet a bit formal. The food was subpar at best. We ordered filet and it was a very small piece that was dry, flavorless and almost inedible. Another ordered the tuna steak at the recommendation of the waitress/waiter and it was very over cooked. We will definitely not be back.

My chicken had a weird texture and taste. My husbands fish was good. The green beans were undercooked.almost like they were just cooked a minute. It was no concern to the waitress that i only ate my potatoes.always wanted to try the place, but not again!

Second time eating at this establishment and it was just as good, if not better, than the first time. The snapper was wonderful as was the stuffed avocado. Only wish we would have had room for dessert! Service was great, we did make reservations & glad we did because they were turning people away.

On 1/9 I arrived at 8:30 pm for an 8:45 pm reservation. We were seated at 9 pm. After taking our drink order, the waiter said: “By the way, we’re not serving food right now because the kitchen is backed up.” Major fail. We won’t be back.

We had a nice time, food tasted good, I brought my girlfriend for her birthday and they celebrated the occasion amazingly. The price is a bit on the upper side, but it was worth it, is great for special occasions.

The food was delicious and the portions were substantial. Great service, nice ambiance. Price is up there but reasonable for the high quality of meats.

Terrible terrible food. Worse manager I have ever encountered with at any restaurant level. The food that came out was prepared hours before restaurant opening and then heated up to serve per the manager statement. It's a shame this restaurant has gone down hill and the management could care less to make it.better!! Even the creme brûlée was dry and pasty. HORRIBLE. Save your money and go elsewhere until
This place can turn around its quality and management
