    Excellent food quality and good value. Wine and drinks were great. Unfortunately they were out of Lobster so I chose to upsize my Ribeye. Will certainly go back!

    Our "Go To" for special occasions because it's fancy and beautiful but not pretentious. Food is always spectacular. If you can get a seat outside on the patio it's nice for sunset. We got seated by the fish tank which is generally where we get sat, and we enjoy watching the fish. They let you go to the bar to wait until your table is ready if you are early so we did that. My husband loves oysters, will only order them here because they have the freshest ones and the best presentation. He got the kumiai oysters and they were delicious as always. He got the Whisky Six and I got the Strawberry Samurai and we were both pleased with our drinks. The bartenders are gracious and the bar is a nice area to just hang out, it would be great to pop in for a cocktail and some oysters. Our food was exceptional. My husband got the risotto and it was the best either of us have ever had. He said he felt bad eating it all because it was so good he didn't want the bowl of it to end. The Crudo Sampler was the other item he ordered and he loved it as well. I got the Prime Filet and it's delicious, the sauce is to die for, and the proportions of everything are perfect. They always cook it perfectly. Everything is balanced flavor wise and has complex layers to it without being overbearing. They also do have a kids menu so don't be scared to bring your kids here! They are very kind even though it's a fancy place. The table next to us had children and everyone was so sweet to them. Our waiter Tristan was wonderful. He was friendly and knowledgeable and had the perfect balance of being attentive while also letting us talk and enjoy our food. We got an ice cream dessert for it being our anniversary which unexpected. The salted caramel ice cream is amazing and then I got the creme brulee which is again, something we pretty much only order here, and my husband got the Ramos Pinto Tawny Port which is the only non Paso Port we have tried and liked so far. Go here, it's worth every penny.
