We went here for happy hour and a quick meal. We sat outside and enjoyed the pita bread fries. If you order this app, you can find the feta at the bottom of the container that the fries are in. They were delicious. We also had the Thai chicken salad which had many great flavors of avocado, tomatoes, noodles, chicken,... More

We went there on a long weekend and wanted to listen to music and have a small dinner. Prices are pretty high for the quality of the food, but the music was nice and we had a above average experience for the area.

This is hands down one the best places I have ever dined. I have been here twice in a month and I live on the east coast. Cannot wait to be back. It is one of the restaurants you always think about going to. The Sea Bass is truly unbelievable. This place is everything you could want and is immaculately... More

Mid-week meant the restaurant was not busy, yet we were not given a choice of sitting in a window. Privacy is good at the booths but they are rather dark. Service was good - attentive waitress and everything arrived promptly. Food was fairly standard, although I am not a burger/ribs person and I believe that type of food is their... More

We were greeted by a friendly hostess and promptly seated. We had a reservation. The service was very good as was the food. I had the ahi stack off the appetizer menu. My husband had the ribs which were excellent and a very generous portion. We will return on our next visit.

On 3/17/2014, we called to set an appointment to visit the restaurant for our son's Rehearsal Dinner. We told the coordinating assistant that we were planning to have 40-50 guests on Thursday, 8/14/2014. She suggested we use the Monarch room or patio since they were available on that date. She said the soonest we could meet with Helen the Coordinator... More

The food was good. They grill most everything. They even have a grilled salad. I had huevos rancheros and it was good. They have a beautiful outdoor fire ring with seating and the wood work on the building is great. Good parking.
