“Lived Up to the Trip Advisor Rating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

As with most of my dining experiences while I am traveling, I trust the recommendations of this site to lead me to great dining locations. Wonderful dinner. Great atmosphere and prompt service. I sat at the bar during the hectic happy hour and still had great service. I had the triggerfish covered with lobster mousse and green beans. Excellent. The fish serving was large and very fresh. Highly recommended,

“Excellent recovery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

What an excellent recovery. We had eaten here previously and found the service and food excellent. We decided to try again with my daughter and son in law. The waitress seemed to have too many tables. She pushed for our appetizer order before our dinner order (mistake). We gave her it. We waited for a long time for our drinks and mine had obviously been in the cocktail shaker with ice for a while. It was colored water by the time it got to me. My son in laws shrimp turned up 15 mins after the rest of the group and just before his dinner. 5 of us had perfect food. Again my son in laws main course was all wrong. The Manager apologized and took the price of the our son in laws meal off the bill. He seemed genuine. We saw one other table complain. Having said all that we will go back but maybe not with extra guests until we can be sure they get it right next time.

“It could have been perfect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Had 8pm reservations on a Friday. We were seated promptly after running the gauntlet of patrons leaving and waiting on the valet. Our server was attentive at first. Checked on the availability of a certain sushi item, then took our order.
We split an order of fried green tomatoes, a generous serving, but we're a bit disappointed without some accompaniment. Hubby' s selection turned out to be unavailable. We both ordered the nori crusted ahi tuna. And waited, waited, waited. Between our salad and the eventual arrival of the entree was a very unacceptable 40 minutes. Water and iced tea glasses sat empty for long periods, as our server seemed reluctant to come to the table knowing our entrees were extraordinarily
delayed.
Then came our fish, on a large brick of a pink salt lick. Yeah probably trailing on a trend to justify adding $10 to to price. It was a fail, because it was on a curved plate which was too small, and the brick sat too high, allowing the sauce to puddle under the brick, where it couldn't be enjoyed. But the fish itself was excellent, and the roasted cream corn was delicious. Hubby had such a good memory of his visit years ago, this was a let down. Oh, someone should take the valet's cellphone away,as there is no excuse for him to be cheating away while patrons are waiting.

“Leah's exceptional service saves the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Due to a temporary snafu our table was very slow to receive service. Once we made management of the restaurant aware, they responded by assigning Leah as our waitress. Her exceptional service and genuinely friendly and caring manner turned the day and made for a great dining experience.
