During COVID it was still a pleasure to dine out. My 1st going and the Deviled eggs were delish. I enjoyed the skirt steak and cauliflower. Steak was exactly how I requested. I will be back.

First time there. Outdoor dining right along the street was a little noisy. Service was great. I'm not a fish guy, but Salmon was amazing. Blackened Ribeye was perfectly cooked. Great place, will be back soon.

Everything was great, except for one thing, mostly at no fault of the restaurant. However, there was a Birthday party. They were given two tables due to the party size. The party guests were moving around quite a bit without their masks, leaving their tables without a mask.There was a toddler in the group caused the parents to run after him Inside and outside the restaurant without a mask. Nothing was said to guests as I watched the staff just walk amongst them. It just looked chaotic. It just made me feel uncomfortable to even have my mask off while dining.

Birthday dinner for a co-worker, app only allowed to chose outside dinning, which wasn’t an issue. I asked to sit on the side but was told that was ONLY for Happy Hour patrons. The patio dinning area was so incredibly loud from the traffic!! When we left there were two tables in the Happy hour - we could have sat there without an issue! That was a little irritating.

The food however was exceptional as usual, and the table service far exceeded expectations!

I went here to celebrate my 11 year anniversary. From the moment you go in and come out they are amazing! So attentive, polite and on it. They always made sure we were well taken care of. The food was amazing and well worth the price!
COVID SECTION:
I made a reservation so I’m not sure if they take walk ins but the place is spacious and I felt safe being there. There is a good gap between us and another table. Employees wore face shields, mask and gloves. I was also able to see them clean up a table while there. They sprayed everything including the chairs.
I would be happy to go back and know I will get great service and amazing food while feeling safe

We had to wait for 35 to 40 minutes even though we had a reservation. Cocktails came mid-way through the meal, and entrees arrived before we finished first course (and dessert came before we finished entrees, and we are not slow eaters). The food was very good, but the seating and kitchen organization were poor.

food was great....only negative things were very noisy...and there was a large group taking over 4 tables with teens, babies and adults they did not stay in their seats and were all running back and forth inside and outside and very very loud and distracting to my small group..and I had specified it was a persons birthday 62 and that request was never acknowledged or acted upon so I was clearly disappointed in that area and this was my first time eating there......
