    Upset because our flounder came out undercooked and we were told by a manager that it was gonna be waved off our ticket however the bill came out and it was still on there. So we didn’t say anything and left. Food was good, just upset.

    Gumbo, tagliatelle, flounder and ribeye were very good. I never use salt in restaurants but that was the only thing stopping the oyster stew from being great. Second time we ordered that and both times short on salt. No bread offered was disappointing. Will return but the competition is about to ramp up with Dakota and Besh joining downtown soon.

    It Was bad birthday experience! Got the fried oysters and baked Camembert. The bread with the baked Camembert was burnt (black). It took forever for freshly toasted/ untorched bread for the appetizer. For dinner we had a ribeye, flounder and tuna. Everything was cold with the exception of the steak. The ribeye was so grisly that it was inedible. The chef agreed and apologized. We did not ask him to remove the steak from the bill even when offered. It was merely feedback. But before asking if we wanted to see a dessert menu or if we wanted coffee, the waitress was instructed to bring the bill. Not a great birthday experience, not much to celebrate there. The service was slow and the restaurant was a bit loud. We did end up celebrating. We went to Pardos for drinks and dessert.

    The food was excellent, but diners spend good money for more than just the food. The noise level here is absurd, loudest restaurant I’ve ever been to. I was with my 93-year-old mother, we literally could not hear each other despite being less than a foot apart. Hate to say it but no way I can return here.

    Food was good, not great, especially for the price. Ambiance is pretty but very noisy. Wine list is pricey and limited. Given that, you would think they have those limited number of bottles but you would be wrong. Ordered the one and only rosé at $66 and they were out. They went and got a bottle of rose from the bar which was just ok.

    This was our second visit. The first visit was better but still flawed. We were there the Saturday before Mother’s Day and the whole hotel was buzzing. There was a wedding in the courtyard and the restaurant was full. Our cocktails took a very very long time to arrive. It was explained that the bartenders were busy with the wedding. It is absurd that there is only one bar to service the hotel guests, a wedding, and a restaurant. No excuse for that. Then we attempted to order a bottle of white wine and were told they were all out of white wine. No white wine in sight! Not even a glass. We suggested that they go down the street to Acquistapace and buy a few cases and the Maitre de looked at us like we had three heads. The food on our first visit was very good. Our second visit was for brunch. We arrived about 10 minutes late and the Maitre de commented that he “thought we were not coming but that’s okay we are winding down now anyway”. It was before one o’clock and the restaurant was full the whole time we were there. Service was very slow. It was obvious they were not rushing us but 10 minutes before water arrived is a bit off. The “crab” gumbo was not a gumbo but a silky smooth refined soup with a few bits of crab and lots of sausage. The crab cake was really delicious but ridiculously small for an entree portion. The succulent duck hash had almost no duck in it at all. It really was a very good sweet potato hash. But for that price, we felt gouged. Overall it is a beautiful place that I think is trying to be a French restaurant from the past with overpriced and under-sized food. The wait staff seems uneven. The whole restaurant has not found its footing just yet. I hope they do find it eventually.

    Let me start by saying the restaurant is beautiful. The service was excellent, but the food a bit underwhelming. The oyster app needed a lot more seasoning as it was a bit bland, steak tartar was ok but not a meal for everyone, beet salad was the best thing of the nite. Wife and I shared the flounder and it was good but not a wow meal. The crème brûlée must’ve been the smallest portion I’ve ever seen but it was very good. Overall, for 220$ including wine and tip I wanted to be impressed more. I wanted to feel like I had been punched in the mouth with flavor but most of the food was lacking.

    Beautiful visual surroundings except for the bathroom flooring, which may be authentic but it's weird and loud. Food was delicious, although amusing to serve a dollop of food on a platter/plate. Service was uneven but there were lots of people so could be excused. Sort of chaotic feeling. Needs a check-in stand so you know what to do when you walk in. We were hovering over some diners right near the door. Sort of awkward. The main topic is the noise level - like being on the midway at the state fair. . . YIKES. We arrived for noon on Sat. Crowded and so loud the four of us were shouting across the table. We staying until 2 pm and the place finally cleared out and was pleasant and agreeable. It's not an intimate place at all - like eating in the train station at rush hour. I wanted to love it but probably would not go back except at off hours. (2 pm for lunch and ask for a table in the corner.) Dessert and coffee, wine, all good. OH- and the table was rocking back and forth but the waiter fixed it by twisting a leg- no need for sugar packets - that was a nice touch.

    Lovely room; food was just okay. Maybe we ordered the wrong things? Slow kitchen, slow service. Eggs came out cold. Had to ask for salt & pepper for the eggs. Had to ask for butter & jam for the biscuit. Had to ask for syrup for the pancake!!! The staff were very nice & happy to fulfill the requests, but it seems odd to me that these items needed to be requested. They should have been brought automatically with the menu items. Dinner menu looks more interesting than brunch, but we are not in a hurry to go back.

    We have been looking forward to a dining here for quite some time, but unfortunately our experience was pretty disappointing. We dined here for brunch recently on Mother’s Day weekend. Our overall experience was not the greatest. We were seated about 30 minutes after our reservation time. The hostess was rushed, and seemed extremely stressed out. Our waiter barely spoke, and was not personable at all. The food came out luke-warm at best. Our drinks/water were never refilled, and the waiter seemed to care less. The ambiance is pretty, but super noisy. The space was also incredibly small. The best part was the dessert.

    The overall experience was 4.8/5. 2 reasons on not a 5 out of 5: noise level was high (sports bar high) and it took some time for food and alcoholic beverages to come out. Starter dish was the fried oysters, not overly fried, and the oil used was fresh. Main dish: tuna, ribeye and flounder. Tuna was on point, ribeye is charbroiled so it will be a smoky but it was amazing not dry at all. Then the flounder, I could have licked the plate! The croutons on the fish are mini homemade and soak up the buttery sauce. Just amazing! Dessert: creme brûlée and Strawberry mimosa, the creme brûlée caramelized sugar was perfection! That is my favorite part on the dish and every inch was caramelized to a crisp. Strawberry mimosa was refreshing. All was amazing and highly recommend
