Overall a very good experience. One thing I would like to stress, mainly to management. Make sure your staff is knowledgeable when it comes to opening certain bottles. Instead of saying “good luck” maybe show them first the proper way so they don’t come off as unprofessional.

Other than that it was great!

A wonderful meal and outstanding service for a birthday celebration. Lots of hard surfaces in the restaurant so it is loud but still very worth putting up with the noise. We enjoyed every dish we tasted.

Overly serviced if that’s possible. Our water never was below half a glass which is nice but, It felt a waiter was there every 3 mins. Food was very good but a bit pricey for some items. Overall a nice dinner.

My first time there! I had halibut, it was tasty but Spanish fusion isn’t my favorite, which is their specialty. The waiter hovered a bit too much but that means he was trying to be helpful. Overall good experience and may go back, I just may not personally like all their menu items.

We had reservations and restaurant was pretty empty but got seated at a tiny table in a busy area. Booths are nice. Like all the windows and high ceilings, also the up scale bar area. Nicee big entrance that allows for no cold draft when the door opens and plentiful wait area

Brandon was our server and he did an outstanding job, he was knowledgeable and not pushy. It was my boyfriend and I’s First time there and it exceeded our expectations. The food was so fresh, fragrant, and the meat was so tender. No knife needed! Even my leftovers were great. We got the whiskey sours cocktail and those were right on point.
