    Let me preface this by saying that I don't usually leave bad reviews. For a place to make me go out of my way to warn others says a lot. I made reservations here for me and my girlfriend for Valentine's Day. As we arrived, we thought there was a karaoke night that we didn't know about. It turns out it was a performer they booked that night. His voice was like listening to nails on a chalkboard. The waitstaff was also rude, though they were prompt with seeing us. We could not bear to listen to the guy's voice on stage. Not only did he sound terrible, his microphone was seriously loud and it threw off the ambience big time. We left before we ordered anything so I can't attest to the food, but if this is how they manage the place on Valentine's day, I would hate to go back on a normal day. What a waste of time.

    Great food and music. Charismatic piano player. Sometimes hard to hear over the music but that didn’t bother us. Would go again

    Appetizers were good but didn’t like the entrees. Either too salty or bland. Atmosphere was great

    Other than being VERY loud, the piano show was excellent. High energy, crowd participation very fun. However, the price of food and drinks was extremely steep. We split a steak and had 2 drinks apiece and the bill was $94. The steak was pretty low grade but the cocktails were pretty good (spicy margaritas is 👍).

    Keys was too expensive for what it is. Paid $13 for an unexciting drink and even more for mediocre food. Our server was not friendly and did not seem pleasant. There were no dualing pianos and only soft music playing.

    Website under FAQ’s says live music Wednesday thru Saturday. Guess I needed to call. Server was having a bad day or wanted to be somewhere else. And food was average at best. In summary, we won’t be back.

    The brunch menu was lacking but the food we ordered was very good. The chairs at the keys outside are very uncomfortable and actually hurt your back.

    We were greeted and brought to our table in front of the pianos. But after 20 minutes of being ignored with no hello, offering of water, drinks, nothing, so we left and had a much better time at Prime & Pearl.

    While this is in a great location, I'm afraid to say the food wasn't very good. Conch fritters were tough and overmixed so the texture was off. Crab/lobster bisque had almost no flavor. Not creamy. Not rich. Then we were disappointed in the steak salad. Meat was tough. Very few greens. Sad canned peaches. Then drenched in balsamic. Not the servers fault the food was poor quality; service was pretty good. Won't be back.

    Noise level with music was too loud for conversation so we ate outside. Service was friendly but under staffed so service slow. We came for brunch but they were out of food and we had to order from regular menu. Food was ok but nothing special.
