The prices were high for the quality of the food. It was the first time we had been there and I don't want to make a final decision until we go a second time

My husband and I have been here many times and now that we can make a reservation on Open Table means we'll be visiting more often. The food is exceptional as is the service. Jose is a gem who seems to remember everyone's name. Having photos of the specials viewable on an IPAD is an added bonus. I now know to leave room for dessert. I highly recommend RSK.

Food was delicious. From the moment we walked in the door from the hostess to our server (Robert the owner) and the other wait staff we were very impressed. They were all so friendly and helpful with our dining experience. Our coconut cake was heavenly! We will definitely returning to this wonderful restaurant.

party of 6 on a saturday night we were seated immediately and our wine was opened quickly service was attentive throughout the entire meal. specials were presented through pictures on a tablet as were the desserts later in the evening. we decided to order one of the specials as an appetizer to share home made pasta purses stuffed with a delicious combination of ingredients that were thoroughly enjoyed. we also ordered the octopus salad and hand cut potatoes with short rib on top sizable portions were shared and enjoyed. several different entrees were ordered halibut, bronzino, seafood risotto, pasta with short rib ragu and two skirt steaks. a sizable portion of halibut was perfectly cooked, our friend always orders the bronzino and she said it was the best she ever had, there were similar results with the risotto. there was plenty of short rib to accompany the pasta and the two skirt steaks were the largest we have ever seen with the proper attention given to the degree of doneness desired. desserts are home made and were equally as good as the entrees leaving everyone satisfied and vowing to return

Food was delicious. Interesting flavours and a lovely menu. Brussels Sprout appetiser with egg over easy was fun and tasty, Halibut was cooked to perfection and the sauce was amazing. Staff were warm and friendly. Empty plates all around 😊. Only downside was the lack of soft furnishings make the restaurant loud when it fills up with people, so difficult for conversation. Overall very impressed. Will definitely be returning.

I really wanted to like this place better. Everything was of very high quality. However, the BEST food was merely ok - nothing was fantastic and a few issues I had (cold food, lack of a specified ingredient) either were ignored or not addressed. The concept of a service "team" doesn't work as there is no consistency. I did speak with Robert himself and he was very nice and offered to adjust our bill accordingly, in the hopes that we would give them another try. Unfortunately, for me, there are too many similar restaurants in this area to bother to return.

We’ve been here many times and the experience has always been great. They have a standard printed menu and the waiter presents photos of the specials on an iPad. The interior is warm, inviting and is not loud. You can have a normal conversation with your guests without having to yell. On Friday nights there is music which consists of a guy playing a guitar and singing which adds to the ambiance.

We came an hour early of our reservation and wanted to see if they could take us in. They did but I would say the person who sat us did not look like he was having the best night. Menu looked good and all but not a lot to choose from. We ordered mussels and eggplant appetizer(good thing since both portions are small). They were good at best. My wife ordered salmon and I ordered a skirt steak. My wife was not amazed by the salmon but said the brussel sprouts were good. The issue I had was their skirt steak. I asked medium rare and I could not even finish it. It was like chewing gum. They were stingy on the chimmichurri sauce and I could not even enjoy my food since I was worried I did not chew enough of the steak to go down. Overall it was over priced, the service felt staged, not genuine, and sadly disappointed. I went due to reading all the great reviews but I am sad to say we will not be making our way back.

When there with our son & daughter-in-law, they had been before. The atmosphere was great and the service fantastic. The way they present all the specials and desserts by letting you see them on an tablet was the best presentation we have ever seen. The food we ordered was fantastic, the best calamari we have ever tasted. Also, very nice that it is BYOB. Enjoyed it and will be back.
