    Appetizer and salad were good as well as desserts. Great cocktails. But 2 of the 3 meals were not good. Pasta dry and not hot enough.

    Waited 50 minutes for food - 2/4 dishes were cold. However, they were tasty. Tonight was very unlike my first experience there about two months ago which was great. Hoping tonight was an aberration. Will give it one more shot.

    Everything was great, but either our waiter was training/new, burnt out from shortsragfibg At first, I ordered a glass of wine. He came back moments later to double check which wine I wanted. (He would have been incorrect had he not.) He brought me a glass of wine that was incorrect and I had to send it back. The food was great. The pace between our appetizer and entree was great. From the time we ordered dessert and received it, plus the delay in getting our check plus the payment being taken was long. We were virtually one of 3 tables remaining in the restaurant. Would definitely go back! Service could just be improved. (Totally understand if it’s due to short staffing though.)

    This was our first visit and it was during Restuarant Week. The place was very busy but we were seated promptly (had a reservation). The parking lot is small but they do have valet parking so it wasn't an issue. A server immediately brought water but a waiter was nowhere to be found. All other tables were being served but we werel left unattended for over 15 minutes. We finally had to ask a busperson to find a waiter/waiteress so that we would order a drink and get menus. Our waiter eventually came to our table. He was arrogant and pushy. I order a glass of Italian Red and he immediately tried hard to upsell me on the special wine of the night. Went to a lengthy description. When I asked the price of the glass, I was told it was $20. He knew I just ordered a $9 glass so why push so hard to try to sell me a glass that was over double the price. He wasn't expecting me to ask the price. Once our meal arrived (delivered not by him), our waiter never came by to ask if needed anything else or if we were enjoying our meal. After we finished our meal, he finally came by to ask if we wanted another glass of wine! I asked for dessert to go and had to follow up on that since we were sitting at our table for another 15 minutes waiting after we paid to grab our dessert and go. The food was amazing and all other staff were great from the hostess to valet. This one waiter put a damper on the evening. Too bad we go stuck with the "one who didn't want to be there". We'll return and hope we have a different serve.

    We sat outside and I felt the waterfall nearly perfectly masked the fact that you are not far from the road. They have a lovely covered patio surrounded by greenery. The food was outstanding (we had the salmon and the carbonara), except for the calamari, which I found to be a little rubbery. To a person the waitstaff was just superb. We were there to celebrate a friend’s birthday and it was her first time there. I was so happy to share this wonderful restaurant with her!

    We had an awesome evening eating in the bar area, since it was too hot to eat on patio. The bartender was our server and she not only was very attentive, but also made one of the best margaritas i have ever had. We enjoyed the caprese salad and shrimp scampi, as well as short rib raviolis. Bonus was there was an acoustic guitar player who was really good. Not too loud and great play list.

    One of our favorites. Service was excellent from Sydney and others. The patio is delightful but the nearby road is noisy..perhaps put up a wall? Salads were as good as always, chicken and fish excellent. No surprises, but that’s why we dine here. Very reliable.

    Had a wonderful variety of brunch food today with a party of 10. Strange that you have to get your own coffee and it was at the front door. But, great variety of sleaze bar plus shrimp. Salad bar, pastas, meats and breakfast items cooked to order. Bottomless bloodies and mimosas. Greet deal!

    First off the staff are very friendly, competent and accommodating. However, I was disappointed with my eggplant dish. It was like eating a bowl of cheese with maybe a couple slivers of eggplant underneath it all. My dad complained to the waiter and he kindly took the dish off our bill.
