Stay for lunch. We visited with friends from New York. The restaurant is clean and the staff very good. The weather was cooperative so, we sat outside on the patio. Service was good and everyone enjoyed their meal. Of course, we had to have the cheesecake and our New York friends said it was excellent.

Nice atmosphere and service, food was just average. Nothing really on the menu that draw me back. A bit pricey for me for a lunch.

Had an excellent meal here, ordered the mozzarella cheese appetizer, tuna tataki salad and a tiramisu cheesecake. Love their tropical ice tea. Everything was delicious.

We ate here because we received a gift card from a friend. We had never been to one before and were unsure what to expect. The menu and restaurant were very large. Usually when the menu is huge that's not a good sign. It holds true in this case. We started with the Tex Mex sliders and the fried Mac... More

Last minute lunch decision. Minimal wait for table. Very friendly wait staff. Enjoyed the appetizers although the portion size was small and our entrees were well prepared. We ordered light so we would definitely have room for dessert. Ultimate red velvet cheese cake and the Dulche De Leche Caramel cheesecake. Umm umm good.

Great menu with many food options to choose from. I ate a chicken dish, which was delish. Right temperature and presented well. Our server Jimmy was fantastic. One of the best servers we've ever had at a restaurant. Friendly, personable, offered suggestions, and attentive to drink refills. Will definitely be back!

This place is always busy but don't let that put you off with the waiting time. Once the staff give you a buzzer ( flashes when the table is ready) you are free to go shopping or sit in courtyard. Easy and stress free. The waitress was great at summarising the extensive menu. Nachos to start are a must. Huge... More

This was one of my favorites restaurants years ago. But my last 2 visits the food wasn't as good as it used to be. The cheesecakes are always good and they have a great variety!!!

We had not booked a table in advance, so we had to wait for 20 minutes to be seated, which was totally okay. Well at our table we were well taken care of, from ordering our food and drinks, to getting the complimentory bread (which is very tasty), to getting our food. All of the family members were happy with... More
