My husband and I invited two of our friends to have dinner here. The ambiance was nice. However we will NEVER return and I don’t recommend anyone going. This was the first time for all of us.
1. Upon being seated by the hostess we all noticed right away that there were ants on the table. I asked the hostess if there was a better table because of the ants and she nonchalantly said, “oh it’s because we’re outside.” Unacceptable! She didn’t bother to have the table wiped off or cleaned prior to receiving our drinks.
2. The waiter seemed very nice however after we received our food he was MIA for at least 35min. During this time my husband had to look at his raw steak on the plate which he asked for medium well. It was raw! The waiter finally showed up and he handled the situation well. But at that point all we wanted to do was leave.
3. Our food was warm as if it had been sitting. The veggies were overcooked. Undercooked steak.
4. As we began to leave the singer of the band made a statement that was very off putting and unprofessional. He said, “don’t forget to tip the band, leave a tip and don’t be a dick!” In all my years of going to live entertainment establishments I’ve never ever ever heard this type of comment made by a band. Was he addressing that comment to us? I don’t know but it was very unprofessional and distasteful at a four star restaurant.

Food was amazing. We were seated outside with a live band and plenty of room for social distancing. Waitress wasn’t very attentive but the ambiance made up for it. Very romantic. Want to go back.

We are outside Friday night. Our table was near a large ground based fan and two musicians

- Food was a 10.
Scallops/Blackened Grouper/Surf and and Turf - all great

- Waiting staff great. We worked with two and only a 10 hear

Only complaint - fan ran the entire time drowning table conversations/the band

Still a 9 based on food/beverage staff

We spent our anniversary here and the food and service was great! During this pandemic, they had all tables well distanced from each other that made dining in a comfortable experience.

The only thing that bothered me was some charging mishaps. I added a crab cake to my entree that was priced $14 but on the check they added it as an appetizer which was $18. They corrected that but then I also noticed the wine I ordered was priced at $13/glass and was charged $19! By this point, I didn't even bother to bring that up as our card had already been run, but definitely NOT COOL!

Had a very pleasant lunch. Felt like the management and service staff really enforced the requirements for restaurants to be open right now. Especially the hand sanitizing station outside before you came in.

Beautiful outdoor seating for cooler weather.

I can not stop bragging about my experience here. Things started a little rocky with the reservation process on Monday but the woman I spoke with on Tuesday after receiving an email turned my entire experience around. I could not have asked for a better birthday dinner. Our waitress was the absolute best. The ambience was beautiful and the food was delicious! Thank you Rays for making my birthday special this year!

We had 2 waiters one who only came to introduce himself and the other who never refilled our water glasses, or came to check on us to see if we were pleased with our meal. The food was luke warm to cold and the portions were not comparable to the inflated prices. We left what was supposed to be an amazing girls nite out and ended up ordering food to our room. Also the music was not live but a subpar guy playing music from his laptop. Terrible experience!

We both ordered the special of the evening - Halibut and it was delicious. Only complaint was both salads were at room temperature and almost wilted. They obviously do not keep them refrigerated.

I came here to celebrate my dear's birthday. We wanted to be seated outside but it was raining lightly when we arrived. Our servers were nice and attentive. The manager even came by a couple of times. My guy had filet mignon that was cooked just to his specification, along with asparagus, and mashed potatoes. All were divine! I had the honey glazed salmon which was de-lish-us (delicious)! The white sangria was very good too. The birthday boy was presented with a shareable slice of chocolate raspberry mousse cake...yum! We truly enjoyed everything. We were planning our next visit before we even left.

Went here to sit outside to eat but decided to sit inside because the table outside was a little to close to the band! They gave us a lovely booth inside with view of the river!! It was perfect! The food was delicious and we then went outside to listen to the band a little further away!! Beautiful night and walking by the river to end the night was so nice!!! Food was top notch!!! Will definitely be back!!

It was simply amazing! We had outdoor dining by the river. It started drizzling and the staff quickly moved us to a table that had an umbrella. The rain stopped and the sun came out. there was live music and the evening was magical!
