As others have mentioned, it is unfortunate, but this restaurant may not be long for this world. When we arrived at 6:30 for our Saturday night reservation the bar was near empty and the restaurant scant-filled. The reason is a glaring lack of service, attention to detail and training in fine-dining. I’ll bullet point the highlights for you: • Hostess... More

It was just the two of us, and we purposely went early (5:30pm reservation) to avoid any holiday rush they might get. I ordered a "chefs special", of sea bass. It came out very quickly and nearly stone-cold. Still jiggly on the inside, which is just gross. So my husband ate his steak while I waited. Both our server and... More

Food was good. Overpriced, but tasty. Service was terrible. Dirty dishes sat on the table, water glasses were left empty for long periods, order was messed on several occasions, and people served at different times. Made it difficult to enjoy the pricey dinner when service was so bad.restaurant was also very cold. We sat with coats on as did tables... More

We went as a party of five to celebrate my birthday. Had drinks in the bar area before and enjoyed our server and his sense of humor. We were taken to our table at our RSVP time. All our dinners were very good but I went all in and got the King Crab. I was a little leery about the... More

Unless you're going for a happy hour burger the only reason to go here is if you have an expense account... I think the portions a very small also

The first indication that this restaurant was a bust was that we were one of two tables occupied. The lobster bisque was too salty. I ordered the blackened mahi-mahi which was over cooked and not seasoned. I opted to order the Shrimp Trilogy since I remembered that my husband had ordered the same dish in Atlanta, GA a few weeks... More

My friends and I decided to have lunch there last Thursday. We ordered Shrimp Kisses as an appetizer and the Salmon En Croute. Everything tasted delicious! Your host was wonderful! She was warm, funny and on top of her game. I believe her name was De. Our server seemed distracted. Overall,my friend's and I agree we'd return again for dinner.

Stopped in here for veteran's day to get a free meal. The food was excellent. My wife had the scallops and they were to die for. Would highly recommend for any seafood lover.
