The service was not up to par. They messed up my first course salad and it took them over 20 minutes to make a new plain salad. The bartender who was a nice guy was quite overwhelmed being that he was the only person tending bar. The ambiance was lacking at best. It was as bright as a hospital. The food was good but hard to go back with such bad service.

Excellent food, but the service was lacking. Every dish that we had tasted great. All of the food exceeded our expectations. I would still recommend this as a worthy destination for great seafood.

This is a great restaurant. The food and ambience are awesome. And the music was fantastic. However the service is lacking. We arrived early for our reservations, so we wouldn’t mind waiting. However there was a line just at the hostess table and it appeared that no one really knew what they were doing and how to sit people. Then once we got seated, it took more than 10-15 min for a server to come over and it was only bc one of our friends went over and asked for someone. We quickly ordered a round of drinks that then took another 15 min to come out. Our second round of drinks took just as long. It was like they didn’t want to sell booze! Lol. With dessert, our friend ordered a cordial that never came at all. All in all, the service needs some help. But once it gets going, it could be a great restaurant!

Waited 30 minutes from reservation time to be seated. Once at the table no one came to the table for another 10 minutes to even bring us menus. We never had an assigned waiter the entire night. When appetizers finally arrived, we had to ask for silverware. We got those but no napkins. We had to get up to go find those. The food was actually pretty good and offered options for my vegan, gluten free friend, but service was awful. We even had to ask three people to finally get our check. We were there almost 3 hours for a simple dinner. They had the nerve to actually require a credit card when making the reservation in case we were late or didn’t show and would have charged us $25 per person. Incredible considering how we were treated. If they were understaffed, they should have limited reservations to what they could manage. Never going back

Six of us outside w gorgeous food and wine. We had fun celebrating an adult birthday. Music was an unexpected surprise, as was a tennis star at next table. Feels so Covid safe. Great to forget about the virus for a bit.

Food was great, we sat outside and it still felt a bit like a parking lot but they’ve done a great job with what they have. We loved the live music on Sat. Night. The service was perfect and food came out fast. I would have loved to try everything on the menu.

Really, really, good. Lots of animal-free options, but the fish and meat dishes also excellent. Lovely room, great service, interesting and nicely prepared dishes -- what else could one want. Live music every night, but not so load as to make conversation difficult.

AMAZING!!! This was my first there and I can’t say enough about how good it was!! The menu is great, plenty of options for all. Our server was a delight!! Accommodating, great sense of humor and really made the evening. We had the mushroom calamari that was so good, we ordered another one. My friend and I had the Chilean Sea-bass which was sooooo good!! Cocktails were delicious and flourless chocolate cake was yummy!! I highly recommend this place. Here for the weekend from LA, and can’t wait to come back!!

Good place to eat and our server Ben was great. food was very good but service was off when we came in no one at hostess stand and when someone came felt like we were being checked in at Denny’s. although throughout the service did seem that way. we went outside and felt like we were eating in airport hanger. We will give them a chance as we r local. food was outstanding though. all service issues easily rectified and usually fall on feet of management

Beautiful patio is great for these times of safe outdoor dining. Interior offers good ambience as well. Love that vegetables matter at this restaurant. We had calamari, scallops, sea bass, and chicken. All were very good. Wine list is impressive. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Service was not as polished as it could be, but nothing more experience can’t fix. Will recommend and come again.

We live locally + five of us were celebrating a vegan’s bday. The server did not know the menu + had to keep going back to the kitchen to get answers. He was super slow and in the weeds the entire evening. Everyone hated the Cesar salads (super fishy), truffle pasta was over-cooked. The drinks were ok (but not as advertised), lobster salad was good as was the Buffalo cauliflower. Three of us had to tell the staff that we were celebrating a vegan bday + the server finally can put w a NON-vegan ice cream (NOT the vegan chocolate a staff member promised). It was a VERY expensive, frustrating + disappointing evening. We will not be back.
