Second time there, excellent experience. Food was delicious and both the server (Sorry! Cant remember her name!) and Manager were accommodating and knowledgeable. Great suggestions of food by the server and excellent suggestion of wine by the manager, Joel.

Very good. My only concern is that the food was a little bit salty for me, high blood presure.

Waiters are confused most of the time. Very poor acoustics/noisy. Very slow to be served the main courses every time. Waiters too intrusive like @ Chili’s. Food is good for the most part. Chocolate dessert is tasteless. Needs better chocolate. Dining room temperature can be too cold.

We had a great evening and the food was excellent. I do not remember the hostesses name but she was lovely, Joel the manager was very accommodating and gracious as always, Luis our server was excellent and support staff was great as well. My only wishes are that we had more room for more food and that you dim the lights a little bit more.

Poor offer of Pinot Noir wines, considering this experience was sold as, “PINOT NOIR” night!
For $165/person, you received delicious soup (!) and two other dishes - mediocre at best - finished with a domestic, airplane-quality desert; this was l paired with cheap Belle Gloss “Rose” type Pinot, Kim Crawford Pinot Noir (uh...?!), an Oregon “88” score, and a Burgundy Pinot, which was hardly classified as full-bodied headliner (that’s the pinnacle?!)

For $330/couple, there are so many other restaurants in the vicinity that will respectfully - and humbly - honor your taste buds, and food/wine knowledge.
