Professional, engaging, knowledgable server. Seafood was amazing. Steak had a slight charred flavor. Sides delicious. We celebrated our anniversary, they acknowledged this when we arrived, had a hand written card on our table and complementary dessert. The carrot cake was delightful.

We had reservations for 6pm. Seated right away. Server was polite, professional and hard working. We had the 6oz filet and 4 oz filet combo salmon. Berries and cream for desert. The steak did not need a steak knife, all food was good. I would say the noise level was a little high but tolerable and capacity was high, tables a little too close together but still not bad. The price was on the high side so this is a place for special occasion or if you go, one might want to select a less expensive menu item. I hope to return again!

Well the food was very good but I would suggest you bring your own wine and indulge in corkage.

We ordered one bottle of wine from the menu and the server returned to say they did not have it in stock...some problem. Then we ordered another from the menu and the server returns and informs us that they don't have that one either. Then a third bottle and someone from the restaurant hierarchy returns to inform us they don't have that one either. Its a paper menu .....do you think you could simply update it?

Anyway we had the same exact issue at Thanksgiving when we were there so there is a week link somewhere and the personnel in charge of wine ordering and stocking. Like I said go down to Costco and get something you like before you come here. The food was very good.

The food is just not what it used to be… It has been a while since we had ventured back into this restaurant in hopes that the food would be as good as it was when it first opened. I remember plenty of meals there that were amazing and slowly it did change.
Unfortunately our meal was not great but our service was amazing. The staff there is great and super attentive, kind and great at their job! The food however hasn’t been great in sometime.

My husband & I came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We love this place and had a wonderful time. The food was great! The Tortilla soup was phenomenal & rich in flavor. My plate of ribs was severed with excellence. The meat was falling off of the bone and the grilled flavor taste really good. Our sever Nick made sure we had everything we needed. Thank you for a wonderful and special night!!! We left very happy!!

We were a Party of 10 for a double Birthday gathering. Table was ready for us when we, the hosts, arrived.

Service was prompt and server was truly “at our service”.

We did have one less than satisfactory situation when, where a table service person in removing plates and utensils between our main course and desert reached over a guest sitting on one side of the table to collect the used plate and utensils from a guest sitting at the opposite side of the table. It did not create an incident, but it is not the way clearing should take place.
