We were a little late for our reservation, they were made aware and held our table for us. We were grateful as it was a long drive for us.

We sat there 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. Asked two people going by for cup of coffee and waited another 5-10 minutes for it. Had to stir coffee with knife

Server was nice. Breakfast food was good. We were sat near a door and every time a server went outside it let cold air in. Overall was a good experience.

Love Sunday Brunch. Our server recommended the Greek quiche and it was delicious. My husband got a salmon omelet that he thoroughly enjoyed. We will go again.

Parking was tricky but we finally arrived on time. This was the first time I didn't order the Bermuda fish chowder as I just had to try the "lobster cargot". What a generous serving of lobster for an appetizer and it was delicious. There were 4 of us and others had lettuce wedge & Caesar salads, all excellent. We asked for help in selecting a wine and were very pleased with the recommendation. Dinners were scallops over risotto, pistachio crusted salmon, espresso rubbed ribeye, & tenderloin steak frites, all amazing. Our server, Izabella, was knowledgeable, attentive, & delightful making for a memorable birthday celebration for two of our diners. We don't only go here on special occasions, as that would limit our opportunities to enjoy this special place.

3 fishes were very good. I ordered the meatloaf that I remembered being fabulous last February, I could not wait to have it last night. I have never ordered meatloaf at any restaurant in my life expect the one time at your restaurant. It was good but I would not get it again.

Great location. I think the wait staff is overworked. Food is really good. Cannot get over the lines in the wine glasses to measure the pours. OMG!

Food was good. Vegetables were very good; but duck was somewhat tough.

Service was a little disappointing. Although attentive, both waiter and his assistant were too anxious to remove plates. Made us feel rushed— a bad way to handle diners.

We had guests from LA & Chicago. They said R&T compares very favorably to restaurants in their home towns.
Service was prompt and unobtrusive and the food excellent.

Our server kept his mask below his nose or mouth but would raise it when asked. One steak came over cooked, and they insisted on getting the diner another one but left the overcooked one to nibble on while he waited. Then they brought hot sides with the steak which was very thoughtful. we were impressed by this. We were disappointed that the rib eye on the menu was a sirloin strip instead. Since they were so nice about replacing the overcooked steak, we didn’t make an issue of this. I think they should warn diners that the menu isn’t accurate. The duck was excellent.

We ate on the patio which is delightful even when quite cold since they have many heaters.

We loved the outside ambience on a moonlit night! Service was great and my food was excellent! My husband enjoyed his meal as well but liked my scallops better than his grouper. An all around pleasant experience!

I ordered the Rib eye and they cut the cap off the steak and admitted that they used the rib eye cap for street tacos. The cap is the most flavorful part of the rib eye. Very disappointing.

The food, service, and ambiance were fine, but felt the meals and drinks were overpriced. We vacationed in Sarasota for a week and this was the most expensive place we ate. I chose this place as a treat- expecting something special. We were a group of 4- all ordered fish dishes. Everyone in my group felt they overpaid for their meal ( close to $40 per entree) . Our cocktails were $12-$16 each. The portions were small and I don’t think anyone felt full after the meal. I noticed one of the people in my party snacking on almonds he had in his pocket after we left. I felt embarrassed that I chose this restaurant for our group of friends because everyone made a comment about the high cost for the food and drinks.

We were seated outside at a table near the inside door & all service/wait staff were using that area for table settings etc which made a lot of noise.
They were also standing behind us speaking Spanish which was disruptive & added to the noise level
Not a great location-love your restaurant but will be more specific next time regarding seating location.
