    Wife and I had cocktails right off the menu, both were watered down, flavorless and expensive. Food was decent but I wouldn't get a bowl again. Kids liked their food. Wine and beer were good. Overall, maybe it was an off night but it was very expensive for mediocre food and service. I might get beer and appetizers but not dinner based on this experience.

    They listened to our reservation request, the waiter was friendly and attentive, it was a good spot for our kiddos to watch the pool below. But the food and price was so-so. Most of the food was fine, but nothing to write home about. The menu sounded better on paper than in person. Always love their mocktails and cocktails though.

    Service was incredibly slow to start and after that, the pacing was completely off. First came the appetizers, then the drinks (bartender is notoriously backed up, apparently), then very quickly the entrees. We went from starving and thirsty to a table full of drinks and food that barely fit. Server was pleasant but seemed inexperienced and aloof.

    A fun tiki bar theme overlooking the pool. Pan-Asian inspired dishes. They have mocktails. Note: if you can't eat pork or shellfish, the selection is limited on the menu, though they do have a couple of chicken dishes. (If you /do/ like pork, the kalua pork is really good.)

    Had high hopes but we're disappointed. Sweet potato fries appetizer was excellent. The jerk Chicken - not so much. A bit dry and serves with flavors that didn't go well together. Curry broccoli. Sweet chutney dip. Some kind of curry dip. The flavors were not well coordinated at all. The Jamaican bowl was way too sweet. Good concept but poor execution on the food despite the delicious sounding menu.

    We sat in the bar and the ambiance was wonderful. Really cute place with really good food. The poor bartender must have been doing drinks for the whole restaurant and waiting on the bar and 5 booths in the bar! So obviously our service was slow. We could hear other tables mentioning wrong orders and slow service as well. The amazing food, drinks and ambiance were enough for us to not focus on the slow service, I would go back again.

    We were seated in the back so we felt we were not in the way or needed to be hurried out, Caleb was an outstanding wait person. We enjoyed out time and it was busy and lots of hassle and bustle around us but it was all good. I'll/we'll be back...there were 4 of us. Thank you VeRy Much for a great experience. Life is Good
