I picked restaurant for dinner because I was looking for a romantic place to propose to my girlfriend. I never ate there but I was told it was romantic by my boss. we stayed at the Hilton Hotel right up the street from you guys It was actually perfect we are able to walk right down to you guys It was the perfect atmosphere for me to propose our server Gary Goldstein was awesome he made it very comfortable for me I told him I was going to propose he took me And my girlfriend for a a little tour of the ship I found a nice romantic spot to propose to her. Gary even videoed it for me. Thank you Gary for all your help and thank you to the Moshulu

Great venue. . Our reservation was at 5:15. Although we enjoyed all 3 courses, we felt as though we were being rushed through our meal, being served our entrees while barely finishing our appetizers. The only other negative was paying $17 for parking.

This was my first time and definitely not the last. The food was amazing and the flavors blew my mind. Even though it was snowing, the ambiance in the restaurant was great and our server was very kind. Really loved it!

I was extremely disappointed that it wasn’t made clear before I made the reservation that there would be a limited menu due to it being Valentines Day. I was not impressed with the food for the value. I won’t be back.

Special Valentine's day 4 course meal. Appetizers and soups were amazing but my main course was terrible. Overcooked tasteless chicken with chewy shrimp. So bad I didn't have an appetite for dessert. My wife's crabcake was ok though

Went for romantic date on Valentines Day. Our experience couldn’t have been any better! Our server, John I believe, was as professional, courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and most of all attentive as we’ve ever had at any restaurant. Looking forward to our next visit!

Pre-Valentines day dinner since my SO and I both have to work the night of.

Waiter George was MORE than amazing attending to us and I only wish I could have expressed my gratitude more.

I’ve dined here more than once and NEVER EVER have been let down

This place was recommended by a coworker and did not disappoint! Gary, our server, was phenomenal. His food recommendations were on point, service was outstanding, and he made sure to show us around the whole venue after our meal when I mentioned we wanted to come back when the deck was open in the summer.

The restaurant is unique, the food was good, the service was good, but why oh why did they seat a party of about 8 to ten people who were celebrating an anniversary and seemed to believe that they were the only people on the face of the earth, whooping and hollering at regular intervals? The first 30 minutes of the dinner was so nice, with light guitar music serenading the many couples who were out celebrating an early Valentine's Day dinner. Then the rambling horde arrived and no one could hear anything but them, This was especially annoying since there was an attached and glass enclosed room adjacent to our dining room where large groups could be seated and whoop to their hearts' content without annoying the 90% of the rest of the restaurant who were also paying high prices for what they hoped would be a nice evening. I have seen this same complaint about the restaurant on this website. It is time they learned that they will lose customers if they keep up this insane seating policy.

Our server Emmy was wonderful. Absolutely the best. Very friendly and witty. Also, the food was amazing.

We were a little disappointed with seating. Placed at a 4 top. Overall though it was Emmy who made the night.
