    Amazing food. Pricey but so worth it. The drinks were not as great a value as the food. Loved the lobster risotto and the bone marrow appetizer.

    Went for honeymoon meal, was seated and was not met by a server for 30+ minutes so had get up and speak to maitre d’. Servers then kept asking to take our plates away prematurely when my wife and I were hoping to have a long slow dinner (we had our silverware positioned to indicate we were still eating…)… then got to getting the bill and they overcharged us and took an extra 5 min to get sorted. This is type of stuff you give grace for at a family owned restaurant but incredibly disappointing for what is supposed to be a very special/splurge type meal at ~$70+ per plate. The food was very tasty but also did not really come out at right times / coursed out correctly. I have had much better food at lower prices and significantly better service. Wish we did not go (really only went because we are staying at the hotel).

    One of our favorites but the menu could use a refresh. The service was amazing. Our server, Ashley, was attentive and made great recommendations. It is pricey, and we would like to see the wine list expanded. Give the peanut butter martini a try; it was absolutely delicious for an after dinner treat!

    It took a full hour to get our appetizer, pretzel bread. It was good, but the wait was unacceptable. The food came out, and the 7-oz Filet was cold. It had good flavor, but it would have been better hot. The lobster risotto was hot and very well balanced and tasty. The food was the highlight, but the service and wait time Had a lot of room for improvement.

    The setting is very nice but service was slow. We waited a long time for our appetizers and when they came they were cold. This was rectified and my soup was still not hot but husbands scallops were excellent. Main courses were good but as prices were so high I would say not great value for money. We did get a complimentary dessert as it was our Anniversary. My husband fortunately always checks the bill and was shocked to see that we were charged for four appetizers. Again this was rectified but too many negatives to give this restaurant a great review.

    Delicious food, excellent service. Love the unique flavor pairings. Only downside was it was really loud with several tables next to us talking loudly. The table closest to us had 3 men practically shouting at each other as they got more and more tipsy.
