We brought our family out for a birthday dinner and were surprised when no employees were wearing masks.
Both my wife and I had fish dishes that were over cooked and the potatoes had been sitting too long.
The server was polite but too close and when we left it was obvious that none of the tables were appropriately socially distanced.
Overall an over priced and disappointing experience

Overall it was pretty good. We were there for Scott’s birthday and he got a steak which he asked for MR but it was definitely way overdone. We were with another couple so he didn’t want to say anything. My pasta was pretty good but if your going to say it has lobster in it it should actually have lobster in it.

The service was amazing but we found our table to be a little dark and hard to see the menu and we are not that old that we should not have eyesight problems. The appetizer and salads starters were excellent. My entree was a little disappointing as the shrimp was very dry and overcooked. My risotto side was perfect though. All in all it was a good experience however I wish the main course would be been more spot on.

I think you should know that because of an error on the reservation site. Everything is backed up. The host staff did amazing. But because there was over 50 people leaving maybe they could’ve given out drink tickets or something. Just an idea

Delicious food, great, friendly, attentive servers. Hosts need to have a better system of when someone makes a reservation that you actually get seated over walk-ins. You also should consider expanding your menu to offer more gluten free appetizer and dessert options.

It was ok. I got the chicken Madeira. Didn’t realize it was boned chicken-I can’t eat meat with the bone still in. The food was average. Nothing too extravagant. My daughter got potato soup which was delicious. Spent 83 for three ppl. Nothing to brag about but nothing disappointing. Just an average place with average food

Came in on Valentine's Day with a 7pm reservation and waited 40minutes to be seated which was okay as it seemed to be a nice ambience. After being seated we had great service and an okay little Italy combination, -flavorless calamari with more breadcrumbs than flavor and toasted ravioli lacking in salt, at least the sausage bread and bruschetta were good. Next came our main course, a filet and seafood rockafeller and a Johnny's steak deburgo. Excited to dig in, after a few bites we noticed that both of our medallions on each plate were unevenly cooked, with parts being medium rare as we asked and the rest being raw enough to go back on the farm. The little we did bite off needed more salt. The seafood part of my dish was severely lacking in taste, still too many breadcrumbs and less tasty than even red lobster.

The sides we ordered, the risotto and cheese skillet were also disappointing for their own reasons. The risotto was over seasoned but at least edible unlike the cheese skillet which tasted and looked like a smoked pancake made of kraft singles.

For a $37 and $30 plate we expected better flavor, but at least the service was good. Next time we'll go to Texas Roadhouse for a more flavorful and evenly cooked steak.

We made reservations a month in advance for Valentines Day dinner for a Friday at 5:15 PM. We arrive 1/2 hr early and had a cocktail at the bar knowing they’d probably try to rush us through dinner.

About 5 min prior to our reservation we let the front desk and manager know we were at the bar and ready for our table. We waited and waited while lots of people came in afterwards and were seated. My husbands says, I wonder if they forgot us. So this time I check in and the manager rudely says he will let us know when a table is available. I say, Ok we just want to make sure you haven’t forgotten us as everyone else is getting seated. Apparently he didn’t like that, because I have no doubt he was waiting for the worst table in the house to come open.

We got seated at booth in the far south west side of the restaurant. Sitting in that booth was like sitting in a meat locker. There is absolutely something wrong with the heat in that part of the space.

We mentioned to the waitress who said, she thought the issue was fixed but perhaps wasn’t. Then we had to put our coats on and were still freezing. She says she will talk to the manager because she thought a discount was due.

She comes back and says the manager told her the issue would be fixed in spring and there was no mention of a discount. This is when I realize the jerk sat us there on purpose and could care less how cold we were.

The waitress went on to tell us many people ask to be moved from that booth...great! The whole experience was completely ruined by the jerk manager and their attitude about the ridiculously cold area in the restaurant.
