There used to be an amazing Italian grill here, but apparently was replaced with this place. The food was nothing special and if I had known it wasn’t the original restaurant- I never would have eaten here. Not coming here again And would not recommend.

Always on-time for the next step in our service. She made our evening out, and btw, the food was great. My scallops were cooked perfectly - not dried out - melt in your mouth goodness. I highly recommend this dining experience.

Robert the busser was also super attentive. Outstanding date night. I only wish the reservation times were more abundant, the only time we could get on OpenTable (we are staying in the hotel, but this is where it directed us to make a reservation) was 5:30pm and the restaurant was nearly empty the whole time we were there. Would have loved a later time.

The $52 New York steak was tough and tasteless. The Grilled Cauliflower was cold and over seasoned with Indian spices. Our family left with a huge bill and hungry. There are so many other restaurants to choose from. Stay away from this one.

We decided to split the filet and fried Brussel sprouts. We had to send the filet back because it was over cooked. Came back again over cooked. Disappointing for the price. We were not charged for it. I will say the service was outstanding and we had a great table on the water. Wanted it to be an awesome experience, but fell short.

We had to call over a manager to deal with poor Customer service we received. However, the food was good and pour waiter was excellent and deserves 5 stars. He made our bday experience worth the visit. Not sure if I would recommend although I said yes.
