    The owner sits at the bar with a laptop. Very unfriendly. Didn’t talk to one customer. Staff is unfriendly as well, and the service is poor. The food was good, not great.

    Outdoor area for seatings beautiful. I ordered east coast oysters (6). They were the size of a quarter so small i could hardly taste them and at $22.00 it was a rip off. Order 2 glasses of red wine was served warm not room temperature it was warm. The server took back the 2 glasses to refrigerate?!?! Meanwhile our dinner came and we had no wine.

    Second time there and I loved it. The food and drinks are great. I love their big menu, usually high end restaurants have a smaller menu. Turns into a club at night and it’s amazing. Very upbeat and energetic club and also clean. It doesn’t get annoying to walk through the crowd.

    No warning that the DJ would be Super loud, could not have a conversation or converse with our server. The well prepared fish dishes and Greek sides were overshadowed by pulsating music. If we would have known, our group would have had drinks and apps here and dinner elsewhere (or reverse). We’ll come back on a weeknight!

    We had a family dinner booked . We will never dine with your diner again. The waiter was beyond rude from the moment we sat at the table. We waited 20 mins for water to be served. We had to ask for water. We wanted to order drinks. He told us we had to just wait. The food was below average no taste or flavor. We ordered over 400.00 worth of food too. The waiter never came back to see if we would like more drinks or how was our food. He should find another line of work.. I never write reviews. But felt I needed to convey this horrible dining experience.

    Service from concierge to waiter was snobbish and not welcoming. We go there often and will come back for the food at another time / food is terrific! Dance party was odd and not inclusive No room to dance. If treated with arrogance again I’ll just note there are plenty of good places and like to be treated as if I belong.

    The food and waitstaff were excellent but I can’t return since the hostess and manager were incredibly rude. We were brought to a 4 person table for 6 adults first and when we asked to change to a specific table set for 6 they refused claiming they would sit 8 there. After being brought to another strange shaped table that was still small for 6, we observed that the host team lied and sat a party of 6 at the table we requested.

    From the moment I walked into the restaurant I should’ve asked to sit outside. The restaurant was very stuffy and hot we had to ask to turn air conditioning on. At 8 PM the music start playing so loud that we couldn’t even have a conversation we couldn’t hear each other. The waiter was very slow waited for our drinks for 20 minutes. The food was OK. We also ask for a check and half an hour later I asked the waiter what happened to our check and he said you never ask me for it! Considering all this I won’t be back!!

    We went for mothers day. The table was ready on time. But table, plate, fork an knife were very dirty. We asked to change with the clean ones. We waited 30 minutes for water, also wait almost one hour for main course. The food was okay but not worth that money. It was disappointed.

    Mother’s day ruined for many families including mine. Overbooked reservations than available tables. Never checked in with tables. Food was 2 hours late and cold. No apologies given. Absolutely asinine for the amount that is charged.

    Terrible experience from the moment we arrived. Understand that it’s Mother’s Day but it was a 45 min wait for our reservation. Upon seating there was no water, settings, etc and it took 20min for anyone to even come by. First they came for a drink order through the bus boy and then no one again for 30min. Waiter was no where to be found and when he arrived, he was short and disengaged. The appetizers took another 30 min followed by another 30 min for mains. We spoke to our waiter ONCE the entire meal and we had to continually ask for anyone walking by for service. We couldn’t even get our check after asking 4 different people! What was supposed to be a great Mothers Day experience ended up being a 3 hour dinner disaster. Once the food arrived it was cold and average at best. Overcooked fish, no bread service, no water refilling…
