“Great unexpected service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Went here with a nursing colleague. Tried frog legs for the first time... like chicken with a slight fish overtone... pretty good drowned in butter. Steak was great. A group of people came next to us and it got very loud, that was the only downside.
At the end, I made a joke to the service manager about taking care of the bill and to my surprise, he comped us quite a bit. Very unexpected! Thanks Christian and Jeffery.

“Great food but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

A bit pricey but very good. Drinks were expensive. Steak cooked to perfection. Waiters stood around our table watching us. I finally asked if they were closing and they said yes. It was only 10pm. It wasn't closing but we were only people in that section so they wanted us to leave so they could finish early. Found it a bit rude.

“Great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Ate here two nights on one trip. Best was first where we sat outside. Second time inside after being told one hour wait for outside table. With reservations seated within 5 min inside. Fish great both times, crab legs very meaty. Shoestring potatoes as side were cold hard tasteless. Waiter great 1st time, different waiter became a little snarky on 2nd visit when I asked if shoestring potatoes were supposed to be cold, hard and tasteless ( I did ask nicely). Probably would return if able to eat outside

“Dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Wait staff was friendly. Held our table until our friends arrived. Bar tender was very good. Drinks are too expensive for me but they were done well. Was a busy Monday night so dinner service was a bit slow but not bad. All were contiuos and pleasant,
