Amazing experience in Galveston! Beautiful resort and wonderful food! The piano player in the adjacent room was perfect because we could enjoy the music without being too close. Our waitress was difficult to hear and a little stand Offish but overall it was a great experience.

Excellent food but service was kind of rush. We were with friends from overseas and their English was limited. That seemed to bother the waiter.

The food was good (not great) but the dessert was fantastic. If you go, demand a side table -- it is a very small venue and they have placed the very most tables possible. We were in a middle table, closet to the entrance, thus, every single server and customer had to push between us and the tables near us to get by. If you enjoy being shoved by every person in the restaurant then fine, otherwise, it negatively impacted our experience throughout. The servers and host were really very nice and professional, I could see their frustration as well as they tried to move about in this packed atmosphere. Too bad as the place has some real potential. If you do go, demand a side table toward the back.

Great drinks; beautiful atmosphere and space; quiet, dark and elegant; excellent service; superb food. A win win and a special night experience. We had the snapper with lump crabmeat and it was about the best seafood dish ever. Very fresh and gigantic chunks of crab. All super quality. One of the best restaurants you will find in Galveston.

The service was as wonderful as the food! The attention that the wait staff provided was exceptional and the food couldn’t have been better! The only thing bad was that we got sooo full, we were miserable. We will go back however.

One will find great steaks and service. Salads are all so-so. Au gratin potatoes are delightful. Best ambience is in a booth by the bar so that you can enjoy the live music, which is not too overbearing. Wine selections are wonderful.

The food and service was great, but the seating was very cramped and noisy. For a pricey steakhouse I expected a nice roomy table, instead of cramped bench seating! When I spend $200 for dinner for two, I expect better seating !!!

Overall food was good with a few exceptions: Pork chop was a disappointment. Tough and with a sauce that was all over the plate and unappetizing. Au gratin potatoes poorly seasoned.
