My husband and I took the trolley to this wonderful restaurant. After several just so-so meals during the week at several different establishments, the concierge at the Diplomat recommended this excellent restaurant...best meal and service (thanks to our awesome waiter, Anthony!). Started off with Rice balls and the huge meatball appetizers (one free with coupon received at hotel). Both apps... More

I bring so many friends here all the time. Owner can't do enough for you. Food is terrific, priced fairly. Brunch is an amazing experience. Managers are great. A great place to people watch too. All sorts of specials constantly and the ability to order sushi also from sushi room jointly owned.

Friendly staff, lovely location, even provided ice water for our dog on the patio. Rib eye and lobster tortellini were good, mussels marinara are superb, but the gnocci is unusual, so ask for a description before ordering. Portions are insanely huge.

Service is great. Food is mediocre....at best! I ordered the lobster mac and cheese and had to send it back. The lobster may have been placed in the boiling water the same time the pasta was placed in its pot. My partner ordered the same....same results. I did inform the manager and he provided discount tickets....he seemed to have them... More

If you like brunch, and I do, you will really enjoy this one. Such a bargain with carving station, Italian specialties, and sushi from their sushi restaurant next door. Try brunch lovers....you're going to enjoy this one.

It was my birthday and I wanted the homemade Risotto and was advised they would not make it for me because it was "lobster night", I went with the all you can eat lobster and what a BIG mistake. The first lobster was... More
