The service was very good and the food was excellent. We could easily have a conversation at our table without overhearing everyone else's. They are a bit pricey but for special occasions they are great.

Lisa was awesome! She engaged with me and my guest and made our experience even better than it was already. I was there for a very important lunch meeting with a former colleague, and it was the perfect place for a quiet, private and elegant lunch. thank you!

Quality of food was excellent. Service was extremely slow and disappointing. Took over 20 minutes to place the food order after being seating, only to be told that one of the items (scallops) were no longer available and they need to remove them from the menu. This should have been mentioned when we were seated. Waitress was generally inaccessible the entire visit.

This restaurant is a little odd to get to, being next to the Petco, but once you figure that out, it’s smooth sailing. It’s a little above your average steakhouse like LongHorn or Texas Roadhouse, and a little more expensive, but the better food, quieter ambience, are worth a few extra dollars.

Ordered scallops wrapped in bacon and crab cakes. Both were very good. I had not been there in several years. I was pleasantly surprised. Very clean and the cocktails were also excellent! I will be back soon.

This was the first time me and my parents went out for dinner in over a year. We were very impressed. The wait staff were very polite and wore masks appropriately. The spacing of tables also seemed appropriate. Our meals were served timely and not rushed, and cooked to order. Everything tasted great!

Just nothing to really compliment. The servers weren't rude they just weren't very good or attentive and the food was so disappointing. Won't return/can't recommend.

Horrible in all aspects the food wasn't cooked properly and there was no care about the service. Long wait to leave hungry. Hostess was very professional but that's it as she did the managers job.

The food was not worth the price. My dinner- crab stuffed flounder with parmesan risotto and asparagus- lacked flavor. Service was slow.

The food was good, but the Vanilla Bean Shrimp was not worth the money. They give you 3 large sized shrimp with some crab meat on top. The potatoes were good but no flavor other than potato and 4 asparagus stalks.

The taste of vanilla was a little off-putting, wouldn't leave my mouth for hours and began to remind me of warm vanilla sugar but as if I licked lotion. Rheur house salad was blah but the bread was fantastic.

My husband got steak with crab and said it was good but comparable to Longhorn.

The Staff were very nice and attentive, ambience was great, overall the experience was good.
