This place looked great and still does. We were sadly disappointed when it took over fifteen minutes to get a drink at the bar and then were seated at a table that was best suited for two people (we were a family of three). When the food started to arrive it was left to us to remove items from the... More

We had high hopes for this place. I liked the decor and the music but the food and drinks were overpriced for what they were. I had a shrimp dish that actually made me throw up 8 hours after eating. The drinks were no good and the bartender couldn't even keep up with the orders. Overpriced food and drinks! This... More

I have been here 3 times over the last several years, most recently in August of 2015. Did not have dinner here this time- I stopped in for the specialty drinks which are very creative, well made and slightly addictive. Just to be clear, I had other dinner plans for the evening which is why I did not dine this... More

I absolutely loved this place, for me the food was terrific, trouble was botht he wife and the kids were not so keen. Perhaps a bit more less adventurous choice is in order.

Did not get to eat since we were there for a post-convention afterparty. Dance floor was nice size and there was an overflow room for additional dancing on the second floor. Bar service wasn't very attentive and drinks were pricey. Security was clearly present and restrooms were tidy. If this review was helpful, please click the button below. Have a... More

Arrived early for our fine reservation and was taken directly to our table. Our server, young lady, very knowledgeable. Upon being served our drinks she proceeded to take us into a tasting menu. Something new they had just started. Wow was it good! Would highly recommend it to anyone. We were full after the appetizers. Each dish came out pipping... More

My girlfriend and I went to Capital Grill which was located right next door. We had the best time there and spent a lot of money but well worth it. We were recommended to go to Cuba Libre because we could dance and have a great time. I got in with no problem thur the VIP line, but my girlfriend... More
