    Everything about the place was great. Server was amazing, food and drinks were delicious, and the place had just the chill vibe we were looking for. We could talk easily and actually hear each other! Check this place out if you are looking for a nice evening.

    Tia, our server, was an absolute delight. She was attentive and funny and made the experience even better. Another staff member came to check if we liked the food and get a personal feedback on the new menu. Nice touch. We had a Wednesday night date menu and it was fantastic. Definitely will be back.

    Our server Thea was the ultimate server. Her suggestions and anticipation of your needs are a talent rarely experienced. The crab in a jar e as heavenly and the quality of fis extraordinary. Also great ambience. Value for date night was incredible. What negated all the positivity was the sides and seasonings. Far too much salt, lack of complimentary seasoning and no real accompaniment. One Brussels sprout split with overcooked oversalted rice with a gorgeous piece of fish is heartbreaking. Stunning cut if ahi overseasoned and served with bland corn and beans took it down two notches. Needs tweaking from a culinary standpoint before I choose this over another seafood restaurant

    First of all, the service was fantastic! Our server was bubbly and friendly and made our meal. The food was great - it was a little pricey, it very tasty and fresh for being so far from the ocean. The noise level was a little high (just the music they had playing) and the ambience of a classy meal was a little ruined by how loud it was. 8/10 we will be back!

    My significant other and I really enjoyed the experience! We made reservations prior to our 7 PM comedy show and it couldn’t have been more incredible. The ambience is dark and relaxed. The food is simply delicious — the seafood was very fresh and exquisitely prepared. The baked Alaska was perfection. And the wagyu dumplings…wow. Melt in your mouth goodness. Our server was incredible. Attentive, funny, engaging, knowledgeable and just a heap of fun to chat with. An amazing experience overall. Highly recommend!

    Last night we went out for dinner with 9 of our friends, we are all from out of town. Our server Thea was absolutely amazing, her cocktails where great, her service impeccable and she was fun to have apart of our experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant! I would even more recommend being in Theas section, I don’t care how much she is currently getting paid… she deserves a raise.

    Very good pretty well all around. Reception was excellent and efficient. Our server, Kyle, was very good. The food was exceptional! Wine paired nicely. Service of plates (not Kyle) was fine, but the young man didn't consider removing appetizer plates before delivering main plates. We had to ask him to do this. With this minor exception, all was excellent. All 4 of us agreed we would come back and bring friends. Very glad to see it was a busy Saturday evening.

My husband had the steak and lover feature that he raved about and I had the steak and prawns (which were huge!) and tasty as well. We will return for sure!

    Would not go again. Servers were not attentive to tables or knowledgable about food when allergens were present. When issues presented themselves once the food arrived it was not handled professionally or settled in an amicable way. The attitude of the staff was careless towards the company and customers. The food was not satisfactory, especially for the price that was expected.
