Not worth the cost. We’ve been here before and enjoyed the food more, but this time didn’t feel the value. My husband had the lasagna with short rib meat and a giant meatball. He is a lasagna fan at all Italian venues, but did not enjoy this at all. The meatball was extremely dense and lacking flavor. I had the scallops with asparagus(over cooked) and risotto. The meal was unnecessarily fatty with the Lardon added. Scallops were over seared, as well. The best part was the brownie with ice cream- very tasty and generous in size.

Made reservations last minute, could only get high top in bar area. Who knew it was the best table in the house! I got to watch a Sunset while enjoying a cocktail-Rosemary's Baby!
The food was outstanding. Our server,Amy was terrific, she brought just the right wine. My water glass was full at all times.
We will certainly be returning so will my girlfriends as I sent them a picture of my Lobster Linguini!

Nice and convenient for us. I really can do without the jazz playing in the background.

When the restaurant is full, it is way to loud. This causes me to often to choose other locales.

Shrimp & lobster risotto was very salty, very little lobster-looked like lobster dainties. Peanut butter pie was TERRIBLE. Slapped peanut butter into a very thick oreo pie crust, strange nothing mixed with the peanut butter.

My wife had the scallops, they were gritty,my sister in law had the linguine with lobster very strong tasting
The short ribs were great maybe because we came on a Tuesday we hit it on a bad day. Another thing my brother in law and wife were not fans of the scallops with pork belly . Maybe try another time☹️

My only issue is the noise level. Tables are very close together, which leads to the high level of noise. Everything else was great, start to the dessert. Bang Bang Calamari and Pan seared Grouper over Farro was absolutely delicious. Wine list is a little weak though.

My Wife and I dined here on Feb. 16, for our Valentine's Day dinner. Everything was fantastic. To start, the ambiance is upscale..all the patrons were dressed for a nice evening out and the atmosphere was classy. The noise level was a little high for me, but overall, the experience was very pleasant. I'm looking forward to going back during the summer and enjoy their patio overlooking the lake. From the moment we entered the door, we were greeted by several individuals who really seemed glad to have us as guests. The level of service at every turn was first rate. This is a well-staffed establishment, with quality individuals. After we were seated, we ordered drinks and some bread with dipping sauces and everything arrived quickly, with the bread being warm and fresh. Then we ordered a cup of the crab chowder as an appetizer and it was fantastic. They served it with a little package of oyster crackers. They didn't skimp on the crab either. It was very good, but the best part of the dining experience was the 1 lb. lobster each of us ordered as our entree. It was out of this world good. My wife and I went to Bar Harbor, Maine a few years ago and visited all the best lobster shacks and even they do not compare to the lobster we had here. It was baked to perfection. I don't use that expression lightly..we've had some great lobster in the past, but this was perfect. It wasn't cheap, but the entire evening was worth every penny. I live not to far from this restaurant, and I'm so glad a quality dining establishment such as this exists. One word of advice, make reservations early..this place is popular. If you have eaten at Russell's, this place is to seafood as Russell's is to steak..both in the level of service and in the quality of the food that is served.

What a great place. The food is amazing and the service is great. The only downside would be the hostesses. We had a 6:15 reservation and showed up and they told us our table wasn’t finished yet and to get a drink. Then a couple walked in and asked if they could get a table and they sat them right down. That rub us the wrong way and she didn’t even apologize. Other than that the place is great.
