Was not crowded at all due to covid. Staff very friendly and helpful. A little pricey for the food you get but everything is pricey right now. Food was very good. Food was a little slow on coming out. But we were enjoying ourselves so we didn't really care about that. Was our first time there and we will try it again.

In all fairness, this was Veterans Day. After letting the host know that we had priority seating, he responded “just a minute” did not ask for my number nor my name, and continued to seat everyone in line. I didn’t once see him refer to anything. Others in line were commenting as well. I felt they were just overwhelmed and didn’t pay any attention to the Priority Seating. The food was wonderful, the server very busy but did a good job. We were seated in a side room, with stacks of full liquor and wine boxes. But like I said, it was extremely busy.

Very good and outside dining. Our group will only go to a place that provides outdoor seating at this time. It was screened and had a roof so no worry on bugs or rain!

Steaks are delicious, and the smoked wings fall of the bone.

Server was confused as we had two checks for our table and the credit card payments were against the wrong checks, even though we had separate bill packets

Goodnight was great. We sat outside to give ourselves some space from other patrons. Service was great, food was excellent. The only thing holding the scores back is that our waitress kept pulling hermano mask down when speaking to us and taking our orders. It feels weird to write this feedback but given the current climate, these are the things we notice now.

This was our first time visiting and definitely won’t be our last.

First I will start with our server Christena R. She was a great waitress. Very knowledgeable of the menu and the items that may not have been available right now. Also she was attentive, nice and was probably the best waitress I ever had in a restaurant.

The GM even came over and talked for a few min and was such a nice guy.

The restaurant was clean and the tables were definitely social distance well. I didn’t have to worry about the person behind me being to close.

The food was delicious. We ordered the Fillet dinner. It came out cooked perfectly. Also we had the Sirloin and rib combo. The ribs had great flavor and were not dry. The sirloin with parmesan crust was juicy and cooked perfect.

We ended the night with two desserts that I believe were family recipes and made fresh everyday. The pineapple upside down cake. It came out warm and fresh it was perfect, and the Key Lime pie was great also.

As usual the service and food were great. We used Open Table for our reservation and it was easy to expand it when another couple joined us. Enjoyed our wine on wine Weds.

Overall we very much enjoyed our experience at Ovations! Our server Joseph was excellent and the food was delicious! Our only constructive criticism would be the ambience, too much black gives the restaurant a heavy feeling, some lightness in decor would be nice. We were a party of 4, 2 of whom are locals, we all agreed we would highly recommend your restaurant and the locals said they would be back!

Great food, Thursday nights prime rib special may be the reason it was so busy and a bit loud. We were in the side or back room however but that is a bit echoey. Enjoyed it and recommend it - wonderfully friendly staff

What a difference a day makes! We went on Tuesday and it was excellent!! Everything from our waiter to our food. Cannot say that about Thursday night. Our waitress was not ready to be on her own. A lot of mistakes in order and extremely slow. The menu said it was prime rib special night, so we all ordered it. The price we were charged was higher then menu stated. We didn’t even say anything because it took us so long to get our check we didn’t want to wAit any longer. I could go on and on about the service so disappointing, not to mention the food wasn’t worth the price we were charged.
