We were, unfortunately, seated in the less formal section of the dining area which, right away, spoiled the experience. The food was slightly above average, with little sophistication, and the service was acceptable. Overall, it was a disappointing experience.

Great food and service and memorable night for Mother's Day dinner out. Obviously everything is pricey for Mother's Day but we definitely felt like the pre-fix dinner was well worth it and made for a nice occasion.

I did not know before reserving that there will be a pre fix menu at $85 per person. The kids buffet was half dried out and cold and the ice cream all melted, definitely not worth the money.

Simply a great place. One of my favorite places to have a super meal, and a bottle of wine. Tony and Scotty are gracious hosts.

The food was really bland. Portions are huge but it lacked flavor and balance. For the price point, I expected more. The sushi was good, but everything else was not

Overall it was a great experience. The food did take a very long time to get to the table and the Chilean sea bass had to be sent back because it lacked flavor. Everything else though was well seasoned. The restaurant was packed and I don’t think they were ready for as many people as they had. We were sat at a round table that was extremely tight for a large party of 9. The reservation was at 7 and we didn’t get out of the restaurant until about 10:30 and majority of the time was just waiting for the food so that was a bit of a disappointment. I hope they hire more staff as I would love to give them a try again when they aren’t as busy or better prepared.

There were so many things wrong!! We ordered cocktails and when our drinks came, our server picked up the glasses by the RIM and she did that to all of the martinis drinks. We were so turned off by that. Who does they?? Then we noticed that there was a lash or a short hair in my husband’s martini so we sent that one back. I ordered a jalapeño margarita and after I took a sip, I found a strand of hair in MINE! What the heck is going on! I was completely grossed out. The server apologized and came back with another margarita which took a little bit of time. She told me that they ran out of jalapeños and she had to go downstairs to get more. Only it wasn’t jalapeños... she added long peppers to my drink, which tasted weird and wasn’t spicy at all. Wouldn’t you think that if you run out of something, you should come back to the customer and let them know instead of finding a substitute that doesn’t freaking work??? I would’ve ordered something else. And when I told her about it, she just gave an attitude that that’s all they had. Was my first time there and I will never go back.
