Food was very good. Service left a LOT to be desired. Took over 30 minutes to get our drink orders, and another 20 to actually get the drinks. Staff were not friendly at all. Food was actually quite good and the live music made for a good ambiance.

Went there for the first time on Saturday night for our Valentine's dinner. The food was amazing. My Valentine's steak was cooked perfectly and the Brussel sprouts were fantastic. I had the Shrimp fra Diavlo which was very good as well. Our server Jared was outstanding. He was on top of everything. He kept our wine and water full the entire meal. We will definitely be back soon!

For a Valentine’s dinner, we were excited. Extremely disappointed. Sent our appetizer back. Cold in the middle. Brought plates to our table and set them down on the table. They weren’t ours...proceeded to take them to another table...gross!! The mashed potato had the consistency of boxed flakes. The whole experience was not good. And our server was inattentive and was not present most of the time. We will not be going back. Thank goodness I loved the person I was with. We had fun just laughing at the whole experience!!

Our "waitress" was extremely inattentive, the food under seasoned , the hostess was glib and unfriendly. Overall a very unsatisfying experience. I would like to say I've not experienced this before but it would be a lie. This restaurant is walking distance from our home and at one time we enjoyed their steak and seafood but over the past couple of years the food and service have been going down hill. I am afraid we will be removing it from our neighborhood rotation....very disappointing.

Ordered the clams oreganato. One did not even have a clam. The others were so tough I practically had to swallow it whole. My wife had to go to the bathroom to spit hers out and would not eat any more. My shrimp diavolo was tasteless. it is supposed to be spicy. totally under seasoned. I expect much better for the prices they charge. whould not recommend.

Food was very good. Service was somewhat slow. Other tables received bread and olive oil for dipping. None was brought to our table in spite of there being bread plates on the table, yet we ordered salad and full entrees. I felt the service was inconsistent with what others received from the same waitress.

Ordered a filet medium, came out rare, would expect an Italian Chip House to prepare a steak right the first time. Not even an apology was provided. Server was difficult to understand due to his being soft spoken and the loud ambient noise level. Restaurant lacks sound absorption. Customer did not feel valued. Will only recommend as a result of a favorable past experience, not this one.
