Went for dinner and the service was great but the food was overpriced and mediocre at best. You need to season your proteins whether or not you have a wood fired grill. We had one steak that was like leather (sent back) because they butterflied it (without asking if that was okay)since it was ordered mw. My fish had several... More

There was a roach that kept playing peek-a-boo at the edge of our table. We asked to be moved. The meal was comped and we got a gift certificate. But after they moved us it was like we were invisible and no one could be bothered to wait on us. We waited and had to flag someone down so we... More

I've visit this restaurant on about 4 occasions. There are lots of food choices & styles. Their house salad with champagne dressing is to die for. Every time I've visited I've tried something different & never been disappointed by the quality. Their Lemon Drop cocktail is totally delicious & refreshing. Their lighting can be a bit dim in the evening... More

Best damn veggie burger EVER, tastes like the real thing. The service is fantastic, wine list extensive and the food is fantastic. I highly recommend going here for a nice Sunday lunch or dinner any night of the week.

This was a real surprise, I had heard a lot about this chain, but had never tried it before. It is located in the Town Center Mall, with good close-by parking. The place appears to be always busy, reservations suggested. Very nice, modern atmosphere, and superb waitstaff, helpful and pleasant. Very nice atmosphere, with reasonable noise level that allows a... More

This is 2 star restaurant charging 4 star prices. Basically the price point does not match the quality or level of service. The food was not bad but is more on the caliber of a chain like Carrabba's or Outback. Wait staff was semi-attentive but got my order wrong. The onion rings, M&C and Prime Rib were all good but...

Let me start by saying that this use to be my favorite restaurant in Jax. With that being said, things have definitely changed, from service to quality of food. I know the previous service manager was transferred to another state, so that may take care of the reason the servers are not on top of their game anymore. They use... More

Food, well not so sure that the corporate chef has paid a visit to dial in the kitchen in a while.... Steak....meh. Salad....meh. Wine.....overpriced, lack of choice.....meh Why is it so hard to deliver good food and drinks at even above reasonable prices? Why oh... More

Ordered the prime rib and asked for an end cut which the were able to accommodate. The prime rib was so big I had to take 1/2 home and the service was great.
