Serve me 4 drinks knowing that you are about to close in 10 minutes and I wasn’t gonna be able to take with me, why serving it just for charging it bad business That was not necessary

Ambiance was great and the food was equally good. Waiter was very attentive. It was a busy Saturday night and service was a bit slow but understandable since they were so busy.

This is one of the prettiest restaurants around with a beautiful outdoor seating area. Food was delicious, great bar selection, great service and live dinner music make this a special place. You will pay top dollar for it though.

The food is delicious and the service is outstanding! I keep going back because I just can’t get enough of it. This time i ordered the warmed petit Brie, octopus for starters. Then the salmon risotto and to for dessert we ordered a GF chocolate cake that was beyond delicious!!!!! Also, at night they have a live show of jazz music. I highly recommend this restaurant

The food was horrid. I have been told by people who live near the restaurant that the food was bad, but I decided to give it a shot. I would highly recommend not eating here, even the appetizers are bad. They are only good for the ambiance.

Amazing, amazing , amazing. Everything from the wine by the glass to appetizers with Brie and figs, to the amazing steak and pork chops. Clean , sanitize and awesome service. Ambiance far surpassed my expectations. Came in from NY to get away from the non-indoor dining rule. It was all around terrific and won’t disappoint.

I came here for my 29th birthday with a group of 10. We all had a great time! The food, the ambiance, and the service was amazing! Our waiter was so gracious and we ended up staying there until it closed lol. Definitely will be going back next year.

Our second visit and it was not nearly like our first. I highly doubt we will be coming back. Staff seemed to be off balance, waited a while to place a drink order from waiter. I ordered the duck and it was horrible (I’m a duck lover and this was the worst one ever, too chewy, too much sauce) I literally went to go get more food after we left the restaurant, because I barely ate and was still hungry. The only thing that was good was the lychee martini and the fried calamari. I’m not sure if the restaurant has a new owner or chef but this was not nearly close to the great review I gave when I came here the first time.

Food, service, ambiance are excellent. Their cocktails are awful! Who makes an Old Fashioned and mixes in flavored vodka! Paloma tasted cheap both the tequila used and the grapefruit juice were dreadful.

This is my third time here since august! I absolutely love this place. The vibe, the food, everything. This time I took my mom & my aunt (who are the pickiest or women!!) so I was very nervous. I had been here before so I wanted to make sure I took them to a place where i KNEW it was good. Thankfully they LOVED it too! My mom was raving all the way home about this restaurant. I’ll obviously be back 😊

This restaurant allowed a couple to come in with a dog that was not a service animal and was out in the open. The dog was allowed to sit at the table in one of the chairs. This was extremely unsanitary and it was quite frustrating considering on Yelp it says no dogs allowed. I will never go back to this restaurant.
