    Salmon was undercooked and very salty due to pastrami jam. So disappointing. Last time we were there the menu had more options.

    Bathrooms need renovation. For such a well known and popular place, as well as cost of dining out, the women’s bathroom shouldn’t have toilet sets that aren’t secure or no space to even adjust your garment within the stall. Services started out great but had to ask someone to find her to request more water and another drink. Then when I ordered a drink she didn’t ask my husband if he wanted another as well so we just split mine.

    Incredibly loud. My mom's Apple Watch gave her a warning that it was 83 dB, which is as loud as a police siren. The host was unfriendly, our server was slow and didn't check on us for 20+ minutes at a time, and the food was unremarkable. The patio and outdoor area are beautiful, but we were seated as far away from those as possible in the restaurant, so we didn't get to enjoy that part.

    We didn't get entrees until after 9 pm. In theory, that's not an issue, except my reservation was for 7:45 pm, and slow and out-of-sync doesn't begin to explain what we experienced. We were seated ~20 minutes after the reservation. We waited patiently for the server for ~15 minutes until she came by to introduce herself. The server didn't give any menu intro or specials until asked. After the server did come by, we got drinks (20 min later); we never got table bread until I asked for it (again another 20 min after drinks). I watched two other parties of similar size with other servers come after we arrived, get proper service, and leave before we finished. I had to ask multiple times for several things. I will say one of the floating floor managers came by and rectified an overcooked entrée, which was a highlight experience. However, the larger experience of such poor service ruined the meal for me. While it was delicious, how the experience made me feel ruined the meal. Ultimately, the bill was paid for by a person within the party because I planned to give a zero tip. As such, I still took the time out of my day to write this review because of a negative experience. After twenty years, I probably won't come through here for a while if at all. I generally, would also not recommend going here at this price point. I can think of five other places that I would rather go first, starting with a $3 dollar café.

    The food was fantastic and the setting is always wonderful. Our waiter was sneaky though and upcharged us on two items in our final bill and put in a service charge without telling us. This dishonesty left a bad feeling for an otherwise great meal.

    The garden is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed the ambiance. However, lunch wasn’t anything special. All flavors you’ve probably tasted before, so we felt it was a bit on the pricey side. The food did come out very hot and fresh though. Our waiter is where it fell short for us. Felt like he cared more about the other tables than us. Some other tables had arrived after us and left before us. Another waiter refilled our drinks. Also our dessert the “birthday cake” tasted like a refrigerator? Especially the purple mousse on top. It was unpleasant. The blueberry filling and ice cream were tasty, but wouldn’t justify it for the price. You barely get a scoop of ice cream.

    My husband and I have dined here quite a few times, and I was not going to post a review; however, after reading reviews from other patrons, I decided that I should. Booked this for my husbands 40th birthday dinner, and it was subpar at best. It took forever to be seated, server didn’t offer another drink when I was finished with the only one that I had, which I got at the bar whilst waiting to be seated. My husbands entree was warm, and my was absolutely cold. Really disappointed, it’s seems like service and food has declined in the last 4-6 months.
