The great: meals and service were outstanding. Nice-sized portions. Great variety on the menu. The not-so-great: the waiting area is tiny and can get crowded, even with reservations. It was also noisy. A few people in our party have hearing aids, and had trouble hearing our conversation even though we were seated at a relatively small table. The featured drink was a peach bellini. At $9 each, it would have been nice for the staff to tell us it was a frozen cocktail and not the traditional recipe. They were a disappointment.

The only less-than-stellar part of our experience was the wait. We made reservations several days earlier, yet we were kept waiting, standing, in the foyer, while a group that came in after us were seated. Then they wanted to seat us in the bar. After a conversation with the manager, we were seated in the wine room. They were apologetic, and gave us a free appetizer and flutes of champagne, which made everything better.
From that moment on the experience was great. The food was all perfect, the service perfect, the ambiance perfect. I would return in a heartbeat.

We went for our anniversary. We have had good and bad experiences here before but keep trying in hopes of only good. When they are on it’s amazing!!!! When they are off it’s really off. Most is to do with food and servers. Tonight my salmon was greet risotto was over cooked. My husbands chicken while cooked perfectly was bland but potatoes were great. Mushrooms for app were awesome and the bread pudding once they realized they forgot our order was outstanding..... conistency in food and servers is the key...

Once seated the service was wonderful, our server was Lee and he was very knowledgeable. I will say that despite having a 12:30 reservation and arriving early many people were seated prior to with and without reservations. This was frustrating as the point of a reservation is to reduce wait time as we had a tight schedule.

Frequent customers so disappointed. Waiter did not write down order and one was wrong. Chicken vs shrimp linguine. Fr onion soup almost all cheese and bread. Asian salad poor vs lunch.
Waiter inattentive after order was wrong. Waited for two of our 4 meals till one was corrected in 10 min.

Bill was correct, but waiter did not split in half correctly on cards. Ran it through, caught the mistake, and then ran it through again. Asked for our patience, but lousy meal and waiter.

It tasted good! Waiter was very friendly. They were understandably not busy during Superbowl Sunday but we commiserated with fellow Saints fans and enjoyed ourselves in protest instead of watching.

Management: Izzy and Josh
Server: Brian 👎🏼
Bartender: Chris

Special Occasion: 30th Birthday

Extreme dissatisfaction with service and food. The only reason the dinner even ended well was because of Chris. Dinner experience was by far the worst. It had started at the host stand I had requested Chris and was not informed he was bartending and wouldn’t be our server. I wish I would have been told who the server was if I would have known before hand or received a call before our reservation I would of requested a different server or not to have Brian knowing this server is sub par because of previous experiences. We were also sat in front of a fire exit, not just sat but blocking it for others if something would have happened....
Service... took 45 minutes for requested bread and when that came it was over salted. We were there almost a hour before order was taken. When the food finally came out it was awful fish wasn’t cooked fully rice was under cooked the only things that were good were the Margherita pizza and ravioli. This is when we asked for management, Josh was great and took care of our concerns and I assume sent Chris over to help with the situation. While Josh was doing his manger thing a lady at the table in front of us turned around and actually thanked us for getting a manager and voicing how bad our experience with food and service had been. (She was complaining about same issues right after we sat at our table (She had Brian as a server as well)) We ended the night at the bar with Chris for desserts and after dinner drinks which tremendously made up for our horrible dinner experience.

Thanks Chris!
