I had a small gathering of work friends and they set us outside - fireplace and lots of warmers that they are happy to move and away ensure are full. So comfortable! So easy for a gathering of 20’ish people. Able to adjust on the fly for gluten free needs. Exceptional bar. I cannot day enough about this place. The sunsets are spectacular as well.

All 4 in our party agreed on the following:
1. Food was delicious
2. Portions were small for the PRICES
3. Service was terrible: Meal brought before people done with 1/3 of their salad
4. High prices for no special service: Had to ask multiple times for water with server continually forgetting. Had to get up and get silverware because ours was removed after salad and not replaced with main course
5. Made reservation for birthday - got nothing from server. Had to mention to manager who did take care of it, but it sort of ruined it. He was very nice and is the only reason we will give it another try.

Great food and service but lots and lots of kids and very kid noisy. Wife and I thought it might be because of the close proximity to legoland. If you like a lot of noisy kids you will not mind this restaurant.

Arrived on a Thursday night to find live band blaring on the patio and into the restaurant. We were meeting friends whom we hadn't seen in quite a while. Why does management force their choice of loud music onto their customers? We repeatedly asked to have it turned down inside with no results. Visiting was almost impossible - the very reason why we came here. We left frustrated, angry and determined to never return! Why do restaurants think customers want to listen to their music instead of visiting with friends? Never again.

The price of 75$ was too much for a buffet. There was a 20% gratuity automatically added for very little service. The brunch price did not include champagne and that 30$. This also was not advertised correctly on open table.

My review would be higher if we hadn't had 3 elderly people in our party (80s & 90s). Buffets are very hard for people using canes . Even though I put in a specific request for indoor seating (old folks get chilly very fast) that was lost and they tried to put us on the patio where live music was being played. I loved the band, but with hearing-impaired oldsters who get chilly, we had to insist on indoor seating (this became a bit awkward and the oldsters were moved 3 times). The food was great and I love the location, but I think there should be training on "senior customers". I think I have to rule out buffets now (lesson for me too).

$75 adult, $40 kids Easter brunch was a little insane for an average buffet with a crappy band and kids eating mac n cheese. Should've looked at their web sight as open table didn't show it was a buffet and prices. We like their normal menu and it's diversity which is why we went.

For the price - service needs to be top notch. Our water was lacking (the 2 nights we were there).Maybe the cups are too small? If they were bigger maybe it would buy your servers time.
The food was excellent though.

We went to Twenty/20 because my father-in-law was in town and we thought it might be a special treat since the menu had some nice selections on it. Boy, we were wrong! I should have known once the hostess tried to squeeze five of us onto a four-top in a totally empty restaurant that it might not be the best experience. Then there was the sloppy busboy who forgot to give one of us water and when he finally did, spilled it all over the table...twice. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive enough, but the food. Oh good lord, the food. It was awful! We could have gotten better quality food at a truck-stop diner. I ordered the prime rib medium rare and it literally came out room temperature and practically mooing still. I sent it back to have them cook it correctly and it came back WELL DONE and chewy as hell. My husband couldn't even finish his appetizer of avocado and mushrooms on "toast". He said the toast tasted like soggy King's Hawaiian Bread. The flatbread pizza was lacking in everything -- sauce, cheese, toppings -- and the crust tasted like cardboard. Now onto the desserts. The brownies were decent, but the gingerbread tasted like "an old radiator hose" as my father-in-law so eloquently put it. Never again will I waste my money going to Twenty/20. Hopefully you will heed my warning and not waste yours either!

Food was good. We arrived before our reservation but were seated immediately. After that we were basically Ignored for 20 min. That’s when we decided to leave. Waitress came over - small problem with “front”. The restaurant was not busy -evening cold but we ended up at a table near the doors so staff going in & out to the patio gave us a breeze-of cold air each in & out. Yes we should have requested a move, but we didn’t. Stay away from the patio doors on a cold night.

I had not been here since the renovations and the dining area is very polished and sleek looking. The menu for lunch is a bit limited, but okay. Food was attractive, tasty, and they paid attention to my allergy issues. The initial greeting from the hostess can be a bit off setting - but the young lady this time actually was personable and friendly. I appreciate that she knew what I had requested and was very pleasant and welcoming. Service has always been an issue for me at this spot, can be unpredictable but this time it was excellent. Well done!

Maybe it was because it was Valentine’s Day and very busy but everything was just mediocre. Not bad, not great. This was my second visit. The first time was amazing all around which is why we came back. Service.. meh, food..meh. Tiny portions on Valentines menu. The company was excellent though. 😍. Still enjoyed a great night.

We arrived early and had a couple speciality cocktails and an appetizer. We found that the drinks were creative and tasty, however the Brussels sprouts were bland (due to modifying them to remove gluten). The service in the Bar was very good.
We were seated outside on the patio and we had a nice view of the sunset. There were a few choices to make for the valentines’ dinner. My wife started with the pear salad and I chose the scallops dish. Both were small and the single scallop was the winner as far as the starters go. And for the main course my went with the fish and I went with the beef. The portion sizes were better, however both lacked flavor and the salt and pepper shakers on the table were worthless. There was only one choice for dessert and after it was delivered I asked to confirm it was gluten free which they said yes and after few bites they came back to say it was not... I was really disappointed, because they said when I confirmed my reservation that they could accommodate my severe allergy to gluten.
We also paired each with the wine selected by the sommelier, and they were all excellent pairing just a little too small (3 oz) of a pour for the main course. The Somme did pour and described each wine, and did a great job. Our waiter was too busy and didn’t stop by very often and our water glasses ran dry often.
The ambiance was the total winner that evening, and I might try this restaurant again on a less busy day if they come out with gluten free options.

Went in on Super Bowl Sunday-evening.
The crowd at the bar was very lively, which made for high level of noise. We each tried something different fro their menu and were all satisfied with the food. Their signature pork chop was outstanding. We had 2 children with us and they got their food out very quickly.
Our server was outstanding!
Would surely recommend this beautiful restaurant!

Really enjoyed the night! Started off with their specialty margarita..... Then enjoyed the Whipped Ricotta! Ended our night with their Guinness stout beer brownie topped with vanilla ice cream!!!! SO smooth and creamy like a truffle, but then the consistency of a brownie, but yet also seems like a cake. Don't miss out on that!
