The food was pretty good... I have been to Las Vegas location and the ambiance is a little different.

This place is amazing!! The lettuce cups are delicious and the cornbread is worth the try!! I had the udon noodles with shrimp added and holy wow it’s unreal!! Soooooo good! The tritip Mac and cheese is a must and the mushroom fried rice is light and tasty!

Dessert!!! The blueberry lemon panna cotta is to die for!!!

Mai tai’s are tasty and tons of fun as they come in a Spam tin!!

Great atmosphere and the staff was very accommodating!!

i totally understand we are in the middle of a pandemic and they are having a really hard time with the logistics, but the food was really mediocre and the prices did not reflect that... so lower your prices or improve your food and the way you cook it.

This restaurant was not open last Saturday 06 June (my wedding anniversary).

To you knowledge they are not open now, 09 June, as I tried to rebook.

We had to scramble to find an alternative for anniversary dinner. The results were disappointing.

This restaurant never disappoints. Live Music on Friday gives it a great atmosphere. Anna was our server and she was a delight. She full of positive energy & was very detailed when describing the menu. The cuisine is incredible. My date had the ribs & loved them! Their Grilled selfish it’s also delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Food and service were excellent.

We had a reservation to celebrate a 70th birthday. When we got there were shuffled off to an outside table, when asked to be in the dining room they said no. This was very disappointing as we didn't want to sit outside next to a family with children. We wanted to be inside where the action was. We were not happy.

Drinks are overpriced with very small amounts of liquid. The smokey old fashioned was in a beautiful crystal glass with an ice cube that filled the entire glass. There was so little cocktail in the glass, it was all ice. Then I ordered a martini, again a very small glass. Then a glass of red wine to go with my steak .... and again, a very small glass.

Overall all, it's a good restaurant but the drinks need to be bigger and better and damn it I want to sit in the dining room!

Loved this restaurant! Had checked it out on Yelp, looked good. Made reservations thru OpenTable, arrived and was seated within about 3 minutes. Complementary house made chips and green sauce are off the hook good. Huge drinks for the whole table. All the food had a good smokey feel and taste to it. Two people in my party had the ribs, American style and loved it. Two had the filet, and same, loved it. I had the cod, it as awesome with the rice! The sides are more than enough to share and delicious. Service was on point, thanks Michael got a great experience! Will definitely be back!

Sat at the bar, bartenders were attentive and recommended some great drinks. We had tuna tartare, cornbread, crab fried rice and wood fired broccolini - everything was yummy! We went on a Friday night and got to listen to live music as well. We'll definitely go again.

I really enjoyed the Cornbread and crab fried rice. The half rib order with lemongrass sauce was a little on the dry side. Would definitely come back to try other items on the menu.
