They have some fans for the tables but not every table has a fan - if you don’t - you are just swatting flies from your food all night. The food was also pretty average. Once it is dark the ambiance is lovely but it’s not worth the flies and mediocre food.

Their patio dancing is always lovely and the service is outstanding. I had the prime rib special and my husband enjoyed the short rib. Food is consistently prepared very well. Made for a beautiful early evening dining experience. Great cocktails too.

Went on to explain why he needed us to leave more money since he had to pay from his own pocket for the hostess and food runners, we had to asks him to leave, I was Very disappointed as I had been there a few times before with a different experience, I will not be going back to this place and will not recommend it again!!

The food was ok, I expected more for the price paid. All 4 of us did not enjoy our entrees. I would come back for drinks in the lounge but not to eat.

We were flatly told “we’re going to have you wait until it’s closer to your reservation time.”, as if we were in trouble for arriving early. It wasn’t so much about the words that were said, but by how unfriendly they were. Zero smiles or welcoming manner to either hostess. So we waited at a table in the bar area. It took 15 minutes before a server even took our drink order, although she was very friendly once she came over. When we were shown to our table we were seated In the furthest corner of the restaurant next to an exit gate and service station. Zero ambience. Our waitress was very nice. Food was just ok. Way overpriced considering the terrible table location/ambience, meal, and rude hostesses. We won’t be going back.

Celebrating both our birthdays which was reflected on the reservation and mentioned to front desk and server. Front desk sat us at an undesirable table and refused request ti be reseated when asked if we could get another table. Not 2 minutes later, another couple is seated next to us and when they asked to be reseated, got another table! Server never mentioned any specials but we heard her telling another table what they were. After dinner, no complimentary birthday dessert provided. Very disappointing especially given the price point.

The lobster ravioli was dry, the chopped wedge salad (we requested it chopped) Was actually very good, and their poke stack what’s marginal. I love Ginger, but they put so much on the top of it like it was a filler to make it look bigger. Very little tuna more mango and ginger than actual tuna.

We had two different tuna appetizers and they were fabulous. We shared a tuna tower, a tomato/onion salad and the main course was their short ribs, which melt in your mouth. The best ever. Very pricey, but worth it. Just excellent:

The restaurant is so pretty and the staff are very attentive and helpful. Our meals were awesome. The salmon was delicious - I cleaned my plate completely and my husband really enjoyed the lobster ravioli. It was too hot for us to eat outside so fortunately we were able to get an inside table. This is a favourite restaurant for us and we will return.

We had flies all over us & our food. I complained to the manager & he said that they know that they have a problem. The meal was a special celebration for my mother & it was ruined by all the flies. It was not an enjoyable meal.

The outdoor patio was beautiful and there was terrific live entertainment. As always the food was great - I had the house smoked salmon as an appetizer and I wish I could get salmon that good at a deli when I order lox and bagels. We all enjoyed our meals.
