Really friendly staff and we got a table in an alcove which was super nice. The noise level was low and easy for the party to hear each other. The food was amazing and would totally go there again

It was our first time to this restaurant. It was rated fairly high which is why we selected this place. The poor service of the staff was the what brought the experience down completely. From the bartender to our waiter that never was around. The restaurant was empty, I'd say about 10%-15% seated capacity. Very empty for a Sunday brunch. The staff seemed more focused on getting individual shoulder massages on an empty table in the middle of the restaurant than tending to their guests. The automatic gratuity charge on the check was quite disconcerting due to the lazy, inattentive staff services as I suppose they didn't really have to work for their gratuity since it was automatically on the Bils's of every check. This place was a total disappointment.

They ran out of mashed potatoes. The steak wasn't really good. The service was poor

Nothing super special, but located in the center of the Financial District, which makes it a great meeting spot.

When I went there, ac wasn't working so we had no choice but sitting at the outside. It was bit too loud and felt uncomfortable because there were constructions going on right in front of the restaurant, where I had to sit outside and eat.

Came here for my girlfriend's birthday and made a reservation online. We got the calamari, rose, scallops and prime rib. The calamari was pretty standard, a little on the toasted side. Prime rib came out perfectly medium rare and was a large cut of meat which I was happy about.

When the scallops came out we were a little disappointed by how small the 4 pieces were and our waiter pointed out that they'd be bringing a few more out since it looked more like an appetizer. They ended up serving us 3 more, but without the sauce. Glad they tried to make that right.

We also got a complimentary creme brulee for the b-day girl and the presentation on it was really nice. All in all a pretty good experience, made better by attentive service.

I haven't been here for a while but menu seemed limited and nothing exciting. The open air dining is great, except in 100 degree heat...they didn't seem to have AC??? I probably would not return.

The food was mediocre. They claim to be a seafood restaurant yet had no fish entrees except for salmon. When I asked the server why there weren't more options she just shrugged her shoulders and said yeah it's weird. We even have seafood in the name but we don't really serve fish. Unfortunately that's why I went here so I don't plan on going back. The food we did order was super oily and not seasoned very well. Not worth the price or the headache of looking for parking.

The Spear Salad was the best! The steak was great, no complaints. Waiter was a great dude, he always checked in on us without being a pest. I would return on my next trip to LA from Dallas.

I had a great dinner of lamb chops and roasted potatoes! The bread pudding was very tasty as well! Our server was very attentive, friendly, charming, and knew everything about the menu!

Good food. Good service. Good location. However, it was a summer day, and it felt like they barely had their A/C on -- since they have an open kitchen, it can get pretty hot during the summer!!!

We were a group of 12 persons and they gave us a closed room in the back. The temperature was awfully hot as the AC was not working. The wine was amazing, but the food was expensive and disappointing. Meat was ok, lobster was overcooked and dry. We were all disappointed for the price.

Hard to describe this restaurant, I was looking for a simple steak/seafood in midtown LA. Our reservation was for 7:00 pm on Friday, restaurant was not too busy. The outdoor bar was a lot more lively, our drinks was slow to arrive. However, the service was friendly and efficient.

There was road construction going on, so maybe that had something to do with their clientele. Foood was enjoyable and everyone enjoyed their meal. I would have preferred Water Grill because of better menu selections.
