“Nice setting , good atmosphere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Nice setting with good service. The food needs seasoning , very bland.
Gratuity is automatically added to the bill. Do not add another tip on your credit slip.

“Lunch specials are the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

This was my second time here this year. Don't know why I didn't come back more often. The lunch specials are delicious and reasonably priced. The sangria and staff are very good too.

“UTTERLY DISSAPOINTED”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I went to this restaurant 3 times, the first one was the only one in which I felt it was worth it, fresh food, abundant appetizers, fair prices. The second time the same appetizers were half the size of the previous visit and it took forever to get served. I wanted to give the restaurant a chance so I went there for the third time with some people that was traveling from outside the US, what a disaster! we were greeted at the parking lot by a guy dressed in black shirt and pants, obviously working for the restaurant, the thing is that at one time this guy goes lacks himself in the womens' restroom , one of the guests (woman) tries to use the restroom and is waiting and suddenly this guy comes from the ladies room !! , while she is inside the guy comes back and tries to open the door. Appetizers this time were 1/3 the size of the first visit, we ordered a mariscada and they told us it would take too long and the waiter suggested grilled mixed fish , it wasn't tasy at all , desserts were good, and the waiters are exceptional , no complaints about that to be honest and fair. Really it gives me the impession that this restaurant won't last too long , just hope it went back to the old days .

“Cozy & Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I went with a friend on a Friday night; it was my first time there. The restaurant is very spacious, not crowded, and the food / service was pretty good. We both had stuffed lobster and have no complaints about the meal.
