Food was good but quite small portions. The drinks were even smaller and ok. We had the shrimp ceviche but it was not what we expected. The tostones rellenos were very good, would totally recommend. The prices for food and drinks were not equal to the portion. I believe we paid for the view which was spectacular as the sun set.

The place looks sort of nice, and the service was decent. However, the food was not tasty, did not come as described, and the people dining there were all coming straight out of Compton...

Horrible experience. Terrible service. Had to reach out to the waitress for everything because she never checked on us. Food took forever to arrive. Doubt if I will give them another try.

The view and decor is amazing in this place, that's about it. I hate to leave a bad feedback, but I have to be honest. The service was extremely slow. It took almost two hours to get our food. The waiter was borderline arrogant, and rarely checked on us. We were out of food, out of drinks, and almost ready to leave. When we finally received our food, the waiter didn't even come by to ask if we needed anything else. For the amount of money you spend in this place, I would expect top of the line service. We did not get that. If you're planning to go at night when this place turns into a lounge, you'll probably get a different experience. Just don't waste your money here thinking you're going to have a nice and pleasant meal.

We went Sunday night for a date night.. everything was ok at the beginning.. female waiter was courteous.. nice and attentive however everything turn down the moment they brought our food. We ordered 4 appetizer to be shared and the brought everything at the same time.. We were overwhelmed and by the time we reached the last dish everything was cold and tasted bad. As we were on a date we were chatting and taking out time but we felt rush since the now male waiter and busboys were constantly checking if we had finished our meal while we were still working our way and trying to enjoy our diner and conversation. In addition we felt unwelcome at the end bc once they clear out our table and asked about dessert the waiter gave us the check and 2min later came to see if i had put my c.c.

Had a terrible time starting with the valet driver, I hand my keys to my vehicle driver speeds off and screeched the tires on the turn also waiter and staff had no idea what was happening . Was brought other tables dinners 2 times. My appetizers were brought to a different table then brought to mine was told dessert was on the house BUT was NOT ALLOWED TO CHOOSE MY OWN DESSERT. My fiancé and I ended up having conversations with other table next to us who ended up with these same problems . This is not a cheap place to go it’s definitely more for a special occasion because of the high pricing and you would expect the experience to be pleasant followed by the high prices . I’m really not one to waste my time and write a review but from this experience I will not return . This was a very upsetting occasion and big rule of thumb do not pay cash unless it’s an even amount they do not give exact change back !! It’s not that I will break my bank for 30 cent but it’s Principal

I've had better experiences with this restaurant prior to my last experience. The hostess was unaccommodating, dismissive and rude. I had a dinner reservation for a party of 2. (Date night) Our hostess sat us next to the bar in a loud non-intimate area with no scenic view against a wall. The table was uneven and wobbling. I politely asked our hostess if we can be moved to the main dinning area in which she quickly replied with out checking the availability that there were no tables available. I went back to the main entrance front desk and asked to be reseated in the main dinning room in which they were able to find an open table immediately with out a wait. Also the price of the Skirt steak is unreasonable and over priced. I've dined at numerous upscale restaurants that charged fair to reasonable prices with nicer ambiance that gave you better value of food and friendly service.

The service was great. The waiter was always there to ask questions about the order and food. The food was very tasty. I had the salmon with mash potatoes. For dessert, we had a pudding cake with these carmelized peaches. My sister had ropa vieja which she loved. We picked this restaurant because it was to celebrate my dad’s birthday and the waterfront was so amazing to look at.

3 for brunch at noon. Place not crowded but yet it still took 45 minutes to get an omelette and 2 sandwiches. The food is great but the service is slow. Saw lots of wait staff meandering and standing around do it’s not a employee shortage issue.
I was there a few years ago for a large party event outside. It was painfully bad, delayed Service.
It’s a shame because the food and ambiance are wonderful
