Good Food but Loud

The restaurant is upscale and has a fun atmosphere but the noise level creates a challenge for the wait staff. Generally, we don't mind a noisier restaurant because we tend to like the atmosphere. Unfortunately, it makes it difficult for the server to hear and our drink order was a miscue but she... read more

My girlfriend and I just had lunch and ordered the ribeye. They under cooked it and when we sent it back it came out like shoe leather. If you come stick with the fish. Bartender and manager have zero personality. Not good

We ate here on August 2, 2015, with a party of ten that they split between two tables, since they don't allow large parties to sit together. That was mildly annoying but we were still close enough to converse. The waiter was very professional in conduct and appearance, yet I had to ask for my mojito so many times that... More

Had dinner here last night. The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. There's isn't a lot on the menu to choose from but what is on the menu is delicious. My boyfriend had the 10oz filet minion. It was tender and perfect. I had the crab cakes. They were very good. Not too much filing and a... More

We have eaten here frequently. They have lovely dishes to choose from. Everything has always been DELICIOUS!! And for dessert, it's definitely the hot fudge sundae with homemade? hot fudge! It's the BEST with candied nuts on top!

It was a bit of a wait (even with a reservation) but worth it! We sat outdoors on the nice patio. I had the Scottish salmon on the plank and was able to substitute the sides I wanted - kale salad and fries :) All the food was good but the kale salad was exceptional! They also carry Mexican coke... More

Average food and service. Good ambiance. No corkage fee. I would rate very good except for the noise level and the failure to honor reservations on a timely basis. (average wait with reservation-30-60 minutes)

I've been here multiple times in the past several years, mostly as a meeting spot for business lunches or dinners. It's an easy location to find and it is clean and upbeat inside. I've tried most of the most popular main items on the menu and they all share three characteristics. 1. The food is fresh and tasty. 2. The... More
