“overpriced!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Last night was my first visit to FGC for my friends birthday. Overall, I was not very impressed. The food was good, but not excellent. I have to admit that I did not try any of the meat so its not fair to say in my own words the flavor. The group I was with did tell me that the best meat was the Garlic beef. The least favorite was the lamb. They all pretty much thought the rest of the meat had similar flavors, not very distinguishable. I had the salad bar, which was not very impressing. There was only 2 different cheese platters: Havarti and fresh Mozzarella. There were 2 types of salad: caesar and baby spinach mix. The green beans and asparagus were not great. disappointing because these are the two things I usually look forward to. The best thing in the salad bar was an apple and pineapple salad. very good and not too sweet. They servers brought tons of mini bread rolls to the table. They were great. The servers and staff were very attentive and friendly. We were seated near a wall and I did notice there was grease stains and oil on the wall. It was a bit disgusting. Other than that the place was very clean and well kept. The price was approx $58 for meat & salad bar. $28 for salad bar alone. (not worth it). we order 4 shots of don Julio $56. very expensive. The other ordered was the house drink ( a type of mojito.) $13. I ordered a seven and seven. $8. Everyone said all the drinks were very strong. The server told me they make the drinks 90% alcohol 10% filler. wow. Our bill came out to $302 for four people. 2 had salad bar and 2 had full bar. gratuity was not included in that price. so... I probably will not come back here for a while.

“Arrive Hungry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

If you leave here hungry some thing is really wrong. The salad bar has anything and everything. Don't get stuffed at the salad bar as there is much more to come!, much more! The meat and service is outstanding. We live in Pittsburgh and every year we visit our daughter in Hollywood twice a year and we make a stop here and were never disappointed.

“Excellent Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

If you're hungry, then this should be your restaurant of choice. If you want a wide variety of food and want to be suprised by what's being served, then this is your choice. If you have a group of friends or business associates who have differing tastes making it difficult to select a restaurant with a menu from which everyone can choose, then choose this place. You will not be disappointed. At each turn, a new dish is brought for you to try. And although you think you're filled to brim after about the fifth choice, you somehow find more room to take just "one" more selection. Don't go here if you're a light eater though, you'll be wasting your money. But if you're hungry, there's no better place.
