    Our server and the chef bent over backwards to accommodate my allergy issue (capsaicin). The food was delicious. The atmosphere (a lovely table outside) was perfect for a friends’ get-together for lunch. We all had a wonderful time.

We take allergies very seriously and will always make the utmost effort to satisfy our guests. We look forward to you and your friends having another get-together on our patio.

    We got there at 7:15 and there was no one there. The food was good. It was actually good for us since we could talk more easily. The crowd picked up around 9:30. Got a first kiss on the dance floor! It was an awesome night.

    Ate at the Grill while waiting for the Club to open. The waiter was kind and helpful but seemed out of place in that job position. Very few people in the restaurant at the time, yet there was debris on the floor that was easily noticeable and not being picked up by staff. When we entered the Club (with numerous small tables available), we were told there was a $35 minimum (not sure if that was per person or per table) and there was no place to sit inside where there wasn't a minimum. When asked if our dinner could be applied toward the minimum, they said no. We weren't even sure if we were going to enjoy the band and didn't want to commit to drinking the minimum amount. This use to be a fun place to go dancing, but not with those two policies. We won't be going again.

    Food is ok but service is very uneven. When we went they were in process of transitioning from restaurant to club. Manager denied our request to be seated at a particular table. Then immediately sat 5 women added that had come in sfter us. Not a Grand experience.

    Small plates food, was not great, the calamari was just crumbs and mostly batter, chicken wings were very tough. Service was kind of slow, they only had 3 waitresses it seemed who were working. Liquid Blue band in the past has been great, playing top 40, but the night we visited it was mostly music from the 60's-70's which happened to be the audience that was predominantly there, most were probably in their 60's. Around 11pm when the DJ started with better music, is when the younger crowd (30's-40's) came. From 11pm on we had a great time dancing.

    Food was low quality, cigarette burns in booths, coffee served completely cold and not noted by server. Menu outrageously priced. We are happy to pay for food and beverages that are respected, however this food was treated very similarly to fast food. Despite that the grill was empty, we had to get up to “find” our server to process the check so we could leave to unfortunately go find another restaurant. Very sad to have to report this as we frequent Amaya and Addison and had a higher level of expectation even though this outlet is situated off the golf course. Will not return.

    Thanksgiving lunch buffet was a disappointment. The quality of the food was not worth the $68/person. Did not have the shrimp and crab claws that were advertised on the menu. Other seafood selections were not fresh and up to par. Turkey and ham were ok. Dessert had no flavor. Coffee was bitter and cold. The only thing we enjoyed was probably the tator tots from the kid’s table selection.

    we had the restaurant all to ourselves. we were celebrating our anniversary. our server allowed us to sample the wine and the beer before making our choices which we appreciated. we had stellar service. The meal was excellent we each ordered a steak for the entrée and they were both cooked to perfection. we wished we had found it sooner as it would be great for lunch or happy hour.
