    They seated us in an isolated section when there was room in a more crowded section. My coconut shrimp was delicious. But the ahi tuna was loaded with a huge strip of wasabi which was totally inedible. We returned it and they loaded pepper on the next portion. Also tasted bad

    Food and service were excellent. Sea bass particularly good. Only complaint: asked to be seated outside and were told no but then watched 5 tables remain open for 30 minutes, 4 for another 20 minutes. Poor hostess management.

    The food was excellent. My husband loved his blackened snapper and I did the scallops. The service was a little slow we felt like it took a long time between courses. We were there celebrating my husband’s birthday and when I made the reservation I noted it. There was no acknowledgment of his birthday so it was disappointing

    We went for the early dining and when it came to the wine they said they were out of red wine. Pinot Grigio. We usually get Cabernet or red wine.

    Wanted to experience their early dining menu where certain entrees are 2 for $48 with a bottle of house wine included… great selection of different items to chose from and we had the coconut shrimp and seared salmon. Both were delicious!

    Two couples for lunch. We ordered shortly after arriving. Fifty minutes after ordering we asked the waitress where was our order. Other customers who arrived at the same ti me as we did had already finished and left the restaurant. She said she was just ready to tall us it got lost and they were now preparing the order. Fifteen minutes elapsed before it arrived. After finishing our meal we ordered one dessert to share. That took at least 20 minute but my wife said thirty minutes. I tried to cancel the dessert but I never saw our waitress until she delivered the dessert. When the check came we were surprised to see there was no adjustment so we asked to see the manager. We told him we have eaten there many, many times and we thought he should comp or meals. He had no interest in doing anything so I finally suggested he give us a gift card. The waitress ended up giving us one $25 gift card. Meaningless! We won't be back.

    I made reservations over a week in advance, requesting outside seating. When we arrived at 5:05 for a 5:15 reservation, they told us our table was given to someone else outside and that we had to sit indoors. We had one person in our party who has low health defenses, and we really needed to sit outdoors for that person. I don't understand why we were moved indoors.

    Restaurant in a mall - service friendly and efficient - food mediocre to good - drinks average - ambiance pretty dull (felt like a cafeteria inside/sparse decor but with a linen tablecloth). Wouldn't travel far to meet here but if you are in the area, likely a fair choice.

    Not like I remember. The early dining menu has changed and not for the better, $48 dollars for two entree's including a bottle of wine. However, If I wanted red wine they seemingly were out of the usual red wine but if you wanted an upgrade $11 was added, No thank you!. In the past I could change the mashed potato for spinach risotto free. Now they want a $4 upcharge. Hard to understand when my wife's salmon dish came with spinach risotto and no upcharge. Otherwise both entree's were well prepared and tasty. Too many other restaurant options in the area. Might be a while before returning.

    Julia was OUTSTANDING! We will be back and ask for her! I had the special (pistachio crusted Three Tail with a sauce) The sauce was missing but Julia brought it out on the side. The top was over cooked. We appreciated the shrimp cocktail, salmon and filet at our table very much.
