Everything was outstanding, just one minor defect, the noise inside was a little too much, we could barely hear our conversation, and the music was a little too high, but overall everything was excellent. We will definitely visit again and again.

Came here with some family members to celebrate our birthday, yes I am a twin! Food was excellent. I gave the food 4 star only because we had a prefix menu! I would have preffered to order from the regular menu but I get it we were a large party! Other than that the food was wonderful. Diane( or it can Diana, im sorry)! She came around often to make sure all the guest were alright.

The food was excellent. The service sucked. The waiter needs to be trained on how to speak to customers and how to explain in a professional how long the wait is going to being. He was blunt rude and unprofessional!!! Lost a customer even though I know you don't care but that is the truth thank you but no thank you!

Food was great and the ambiance was really good, too. However they messed up our bill. They charged all our drinks twice. I asked them to change it and they came back with a new bill, I gave them my card before double checking but I noticed they had still charged us an additional drink. They couldnt void the charge on my card, so they had to give me some cash back. It was just a bad experience overall.

We went there for Mothers day. The parking in their parking lot took 30 minutes. There was no valet parking. It took them 1 hour to bring our appetizers and 2 hours for our main course. The pernil and ribs were poorly seasoned and the rice was hard and they had pieces of white rice mixed in with my yellow. We drove from CT, the atmosphere, was amazing, and drinks, but there food was terrible. Not worth the $300 I spent . We still had a good time minus there terrible food.

Wasn't the best food, steak was overcooked and the drinks were weak, it was mother's day so didn't expect the best of service but didn't expect it to be as bad as it was, might give it another chance but not sure yet

The waitress, servers, and front desk were all so nice and attentive to our needs. I love this place will continue to go more often!

The Music was loud and the Server had to repeat herself 2x for drinks she stated "This is the last time I am repeating myself"

The food was tasteless. Definitely wouldn't go for the food.

The ambiance is beautiful. Really nice place to attend and I am sure other servers would do a better job.

When we first arrived 10 min early doors were closed the place opened up at 1 15pm when the emailed stated don't be late and the young lady that opened the door didn't even greet us she opened the door and walked back in we wasn't sure if we should follow. Besides that the server was really nice. Don't think I'll be returning here for Brunch.

My family and I were absolutely unhappy with the manner in which we were attended. The server was rude and lacked personality. We order a round of Caipirinhas one of the “specialty cocktails” we complaint that the drinks were bland and also didn’t have any alcohol. She took all of them from the table with an attitude. Brought us new ones those were even worse the bartender made them with a lot of vodka and tonic water we decided we weren’t going to say anything some of party ordered beers instead others opted for refreshments instead. She never asked how were the drinks clearly ignored our table the entire time. The food was okay but it took a very long time and one person was missing her order for a while. Very disappointed!
