Lunch was delicious. Pricey, but nice service and presentation. Good place to meet friends. Looking forward to trying the patio in summertime. It would be great if they could put in something to help with the noise level.

I went with my son after getting massages at Mario Tricochi. My husband joined too at last minute. Loved the decor but music and place was too loud. It’s the space. Need to creat ways to absorb sound

Great "city feel" brunch but in the suburbs! Live music- guitarist playing acoustic covers. Food was fantastic. Would go back again for sure.

Burger and Fries were amazing. Guacamole is over priced and was mediocre.

Large portions, but food was average. I have been to other HS’s that were better. Too noisy, even though few people there. Just very cavernous

This was my fourth time dining here. I do enjoy the menu and ambiance but I have to say our server, Chloe, was very distracted and slow. We had to repeatedly ask for menus and refills on our drinks. I would say Chloe’s attentiveness was lacking but the food was great!

Dropped in for a last minute lunch while doing post Xmas shopping. Greeter took a while to get my seat available and seated me in high seating even though I requested regular seating on my open table reservation. Once seated I waited approx 10
Minutes for the server to come and give us menus. Server was Joe- very friendly but seemed busy. Didn’t check on us really. Had the Beach Bowl- delicious but small portion for the price! the lemon lavender drink was excellent. Had to flag down another server to ask our server Joe to bring us the bill. When it was time to leave, and as I had just paid the bill, was when Joe brought the dessert menu to us. Just weird. While I was walking out, I noticed another couple with the same problem- literally waving her hand in the air trying to get anyone’s attention for service. I was shaking my head thinking, “a trendy restaurant like this. In a nice mall and at prime lunch time- and people don’t get top notch device for the prices to be paid here.”

The food and service were excellent. The noise level was entirely incompatible with relaxing over a good meal and catching up with a friend. We literally had to yell to hear one another. The space is wide open with no noise dampening device. A holiday party was going on in half the space with joyous laughter and clapping, but to the point of raucous and self-involved. Its not a good set up. The last time I was there (with no concurrent parties) the noise level was poor as well. It’s a shame because the food is excellent.

Reservation was meaningless. Ended up having to sit at a high top table as opposed to standard seating. Unsupervised kids running everywhere - loud and out of control. Front desk staff seemed annoyed and stressed out. Recommend not going at high demand times.

Went for an early dinner after a day of holiday shopping. It was not crowded, lots of empty tables. I was not familiar with the restaurant and reserved a short table. When we arrived, the hostess was sitting us very close to a large group although the rest of the restaurant was empty. When I asked if we can sit at a booth, she said they were reserved. So we asked to sit in the bar area at high tables

Out waiter was very good and gave us suggestions. We had Parmesan fries as appetizer, I had a Hampton chicken Caesar salad that had a good amount of Brussels sprouts - it was good, our daughter had the shrimp tacos which were also good and my husband had the coastal salad which comes with shrimp and crab meat that he was not fond of.

All and all, it was a good stop. It started getting a little more crowded when we left... some booths were open. But glad we sat where we did.

The food is simple. Nothing really stood out to make us really want to make a reservation to come back. But if hungry after shopping, we would return.

The restaurant was warm and cozy on the cold night were were there despite the large windows! Kudos for that! The water carafe on the table was also quite helpful! Food was good. The trout was super fresh, but could have used a tiny bit more salt. NBD. Otherwise, everybody was happy and enjoyed the great meal! Wait staff was lovely!

This is a great restaurant, and I've been there about 7 times. It's VERY loud, so prepare yourself for that. Menu options are a combination of everything I love. Food is really good. But of all the times I've been there, I've never had great service. I'm almost always trying to flag someone down and feeling ignored by the servers as they are typically huddled in the corner by the server desk near the back wall. So...great food, poor service.

Atmosphere was nice, service was a little slow, had to go and ask if we had wait service or needed to order at the bar. Shrimp taco's were good but the shrimp was over cooked. Martini's were mediocre, stick to the drink menu. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive once she got to us. Would go again.

Didn't get a chance to try the food. Was seated and waited on a friend during a very slow Saturday brunch time. I was ignored for 7-10 minutes, and I started looking around. No one brought me water or asked if I wanted a drink or if I was waiting on someone. After I started looking around, someone brought water and asked if my server stopped by. No. So I got up and left. Life is too short to deal with 0 service when employees are standing around.

I'd been wanting to try this restaurant for a bit and finally had the opportunity to do so. The food was very good. Instead of an appetizer we had an order of the truffle fries. Very thin and crispy and delicious. We both had the salmon with tzatziki sauce, garbanzo beans, and asparagus. The salmon was cooked perfectly It was very tasty, and I would order it again. One thing I didn't like at all is the booth seating, as it was very uncomfortable. The booth seat was too high for the table height. I should have used my head and asked for a regular table. Next time.
