I came back to this place because it was good. This past weekend went to celebrate birthday and order paella and was bad, very watery, a very few shrimps and conches, overcooked lobster and also order skirt steak that was so so. Serradura for dessert not even close for a real serradura, very liquid. The only regular thing we order... More

If you want frozen food, a horrible customer service experience, and a rude manager then this is the restaurant to go to. I don't even write reviews on places but this place takes the cake. On Saturday I met with some friends and came to this restaurant. We sat down but we had to repeatedly, 3 or 4 times, to... More

Waking into this place you get an immediate feeling of unease. A big group of young men staring at you with a very unfriendly looks, pretending and trying hard to make you feel like you are at a 5 star restaurant but it does not work. The server did not speak a word of English, brought me q bottle of... More

Have been there many times before, the food is well priced for the quality. Terriific seafood dishes and steaks in a warm portuguese decor, with professional service. The owner treated us to a delicious glass of port after our meal. Cannot count the times we have been there, and we have always enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Will return again.....

Food has gone downhill. Clams werent cleaned. Shrimp wasnt deveined. Prices do not justify the quality of food. Service was clumsy after our waiter spilled a beer on my wife. There are better places. Wont be back.

Stop in for lunch today, sangria is the best as usual. The food is always plentiful and delicious. The service was good and desserts are to die for. They even have a parking lot which is rare down neck
