    We sat in the lounge area and loved our dinner. Peter was the bartender who assisted us and suggested a chef's sampling of the mezze dips - they were delicious plus we enjoyed the little gem with shrimp and ended the meal with the butter cake. Looking forward to retuning for the spreads! :_

    Super helpful for me to change my reservation of 3 into 4. Showed up and high top table was very wobbly, but 2 workers noticed that we used a napkin to fix it and quickly used something more professional to correct it. Food and drinks were too notch. Our server was on point with taking played away and refills. Chefs and team has awesome food and kept buffet refilled.

    Grilled octopus is flavorful, the romesco sauce is very good. Grilled swordfish was also tasty. The portions are tiny and expensive. The ambience is sterile - it’s a typical hotel restaurant without a lot of character. We come here often, and will return again, but its not my first choice. It was Friday during lent, and we wanted seafood otherwise I might have chosen something else. Rooftop bar is fun scene.

    We had high hopes for this beautiful looking restaurant. Great location and pretty cool vibe, but we were less than impressed. While the food was good, for the price it wasn’t worth it. Service was also very slow. The server was helpful and did give some recommendations, which we always appreciate. The person delivering the food just plopped our food on the table without a care in the world, not even looking back when we asked her a question, possibly not hearing us, but customer service was definitely lacking here. We were celebrating a birthday and they did give us a comp dessert. All in all I would go back for more of a casual meal, some of the pizzas and appetizers looked good. I guess we were looking for a nice upscale dining experience and it was hair average.

    Our food didn’t arrive for an hour! The restaurant was almost empty by the time our food came . Our reservation was for 12:15 and we couldn’t leave til 2:00! The only good thing was the emptiness made it quieter. I thought the restaurant was pretty and comfortable . My avacado toast was very good as were the pancakes and hopopapal (?) and hamburger. We were credited for the situation which helped!
    Tre RivaliResponded on March 4, 2024
    Thanks for the review, Shar. We're so sorry to hear about the delay with your food and the long wait time. We understand how frustrating that can be, especially when you've made a reservation. There is no excuse for that kind of wait, and luckily it is very rare for that to happen. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed our food and service, and we appreciate your understanding and patience. I do hope you will give us another opportunity to serve you again soon.

    Atmosphere was great and good customer service, the food was te problem, I went there for my date on Valentine’s Day and it was really disappointing, pizza was burnt, and the appetizer was really dry, wine was good, but we decided no to stay for dessert since it wasn’t a good meal.

    Thanks for the feedback, EsbaiT. We're truly sorry to hear that our food did not meet your expectations, especially on Valentine's Day. I wish I would have found out that evening, and re-cooked or perhaps found something was more to your liking. We pride ourselves on our culinary offerings and it's disappointing to hear that we fell short. Your feedback is valuable to us and we will certainly use it to improve. We hope you'll give us another chance to impress you in the future.
