To start off it was disappointing. I have been to this location before and it was great but this time I did not have the same experience. It was not busy at all yet we had poor service- we were always waiting on our server for drinks or the next food option. I ordered a coffee with dessert but it never came, the bill was in the $150 range which we swiped our card for but when the receipt came back it said $285. Had to wait an extra 35 min for the manager to get out of the restroom to fix which made us miss our movie.

The visit was for our 38 anniversary. We had a great time, but our service was slow. I don't know the reason, but the time between time between courses was too long.

Everything was delicious, and the bartender David was on point. My only caveat was the main portion size...

I have spent hundreds of dollars at this place through the years. I brought my granddaughter this past week for a special treat for a grandmother/granddaughter date. She was so excited. The place was not crowded at all. We were put at a table that management and staff knew had burner issues and they coukd have put us at any other table that did not have “known” issues. Our cheese stayed cold to lukwarm. The chocolate never heated and remained room temperature. The meat would never cook thoroughly so I gave all the steak and shrimp to my grandchild. I ate the chicken and pork which stayed partial raw. I called over the manager and he acted surprised, apologised and gave my granddaughter a box of strawberries. Upon leaving the waitress told me everyone including the manager knew our table and the table in front of us had faulty burners and they took forever to heat up (if ever) then she apologized. I was furious to know other tables were available and we were put in a spot with known bad burners. I feel my granddaughter’s experience was ruined. We spent almost $100 for a bad experience. The general manager should be told. This is very bad business.

We had a great time! I guess my only disappointment was the photos that were taken, they were taken at the end of the evening (so all of us weren't as fresh as when we arrived) and the photos were fuzzy, but it was still a fun time!

While the place is nice. Our waitress was sick she said she wasn’t one of the other who came by to Bring something said she was in bathroom all night sick, which is exactly whom I want near my food and what I want to be told by another waitress whom is just dropping off a drink as to why we can’t get service, (insert sarcasm). The food was good, but since our waitress was a absent from her duties we did not get service. 6 people at our table drink refills were challenging, the New Years $140 special came with memory pictures we did not get either. The gratuity was figured on our bill automaticity and was well more than what should have been tipped for the service we had, our table of 6 spent right at $650.00. So appreciate table service and to get what we paid for in a timely fashion is not to much to ask. I understand everyone has bad days but she should have stayed home as a result we will not go back.

We’ve been here multiple time and have yet to be disappointed. We love that it takes a while to get through the meal so that we can have more conversation and enjoy each other’s company. I love the pacific rim or the surf and turf. So yummy! Would recommend this to anyone!
