Service was excellent, food was even better. My wife and I went on a Sunday to celebrate our anniversary. It couldn't have been better. We both got the crab cake stuffed Alaskan Sole 3-course meal. The Caesar Salad was amazing, the entree was superb, and the dessert was heavenly!

The plates were not clean when we got bread. The food wasn’t the best, wasn’t the worst. I’d rather go somewhere like longhorn. It would’ve been cheaper and better quality.

The menu was great. However, the service was poor for the style of restaurant it is. Not once did they wipe off our table and it was a mess. Also, it took a while to get our drinks and/or refills.
Overall, it wasn’t up to par with a $350 dinner for four.

I absolutely love the fish here! I had the sea bass and my wife had the scallops. The vegetables went amazing with it and the timing was perfect so we could have our conversation without continued interruption. The ambiance was perfect and the waiters super polite. Also a great view of Towne Square.

We went for the seafood grill- always excellent cobia with stuffed shrimp, and green beans on the side. The cobia had just the right hint of saltiness from the sea and a buttery quality. The stuffed shrimp were delicious, and I had enough to take home for luch the next day.

We had the strawberry cheesecake which was light and enjoyable-But we miss the chocolate bag for dessert!

While the food and value was very good, I wasn't thrilled enough to write a five star review. My glass of tea had lipstick on the rim, of course the waiter replaced it. The mens room didn't have soap to wash your hands. We did not see any hand sanitizer any where in the restaurant. I will go back when I feel the management discusses their downfall. I have been a Landrys Club Member since 2011 I believe and haven't seen a restaurant quite like this one. Sorry for the bad report.

Had prix fixe three course Valentines Day special. Entrees came out before we were halfway through our soup and salad. Server didn’t check on us until we were into the entrees. Strip steak was ordered med but came out med rare. Rest of entree just warm. Desserts (apple pie and cheesecake were delicious). Refills never offered until halfway thru dessert. Didn’t complain but won’t return. Overall just disappointing.

3 out of 4 got chicken it was very dry. Service was very poor. We set for an extremely long time before being acknowledged. We had to go get the hostess to help. Part of our entrees were forgotten and never brought out. It wasn’t a very good experience.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. While the food was delicious there were concerns that over shadowed our experience. First, hostesses were not accommodating. Numerous people complained in our group the conditions of the women’s restroom. There was water on the floor in the stalls, NO toilet paper, NO hand soap and No paper towels and the garbage was over flowing. Once we complained numerous times they smashed the garbage down in the trash can and place a condiment container on the counter with soap. Floor was never cleaned up. Next there was NO social distancing with the guests or the table. Finally the waiter was extremely unprofessional. We were excited to try something new but we will not be back and we will not recommend the place

Service was very slow-many tables received their food/drink orders before we did however we had been seated at least 20 minutes prior to them. Drinks took roughly 20 minutes to get. At least another 20 to take our order. Food was very salty. Our waiter was very nice and apologetic, but we were there from 6:45 until 9:30 and not by choice.

Exceptional place. Went Valentine’s weekend because we had been given a gift card. Hostess sat us in a romantic spot and Jawan our server was excellent. He gave the right amount of attention but let us enjoy our meal alone as well. The entire meal from the salad to the entree to the dessert was Great!! Will go there again and tell others about it as well. Thank you for making our Valentine’s celebration a great one.

The food was great and the ambience was good, the server that we had lacked social skills it seemed like, he was nice but he never went the extra mile and he was just plain, maybe if he would have been a little more upbeat then our experience could have been better.

Waiter was friendly but rushed the ordering and dinner process along way too fast. No ambiance whatsoever. Three tables in restaurant and they had us back to back where we could hear everyone’s conversation. Food was mediocre. I know it’s covid but we are paying the same amount as precovid. I know they can do much better.

I went the day of the MLK Parade and the restaurant got a late start. The front doors were still locked at 12:15 when I arrived for a 12:30 lunch appointment. The kitchen was running behind too. But the bartender saw me outside trying to get in and opened the door for me. My waiter still got my food to me within 15 minutes. Very well handled by the staff.

One of my friends steak came back pink and bleeding twice , my other friends burger was pink when he specifically requested well well some . Entree sizes are minimum for large prices . Not worth the money , the food lacked in flavor , portion size and not being cooked properly . Our server was the only one keeping sane .
