“over priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We went here for dinner and drinks one night. The food and drinks were both family good but seemed to be overpriced to me. The service seemed to be pretty slow. Ordered drinks and took a while for the server to come back for a second round.

“Beautiful spot, good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Beautiful spot, good food. The bar especially was worth a try! (Especially the dry ice cocktails). It looks like they use industrial strength dry ice to "flash freeze" an existing cocktail, quite interesting.

“Good food but menu never changes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This is a great spot and the food is good but the menu hasn't changed since they opened so it's the same ole' thing which you can get tired of. Wait staff is okay but changes constantly since it seems people get fired alot there. Can't substitute items without being charged which I don't like. Knew the original executive chef and bartenders who are now gone and it's just not the same. Used to go twice a week, maybe 3 because of the great atmosphere but they fired the bartenders for some unknown reason and it hasn't been the same since. Now that the head chef is now also gone may also be the reason for not updating the menu because the chefs are only good at cooking the original menu items. It's just average now.

“Atrocious Mother's Day and Everyday Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

5/12/13 Mother's Day Brunch Buffet 10 AM - 3 PM, $30 per person

We come in for our reservation at 1 PM but wait 15 minutes to get seated.

There's no food at the buffet as advertised on the menu. Everyone at our table visits the buffet 2 or 3 times throughout the hour that we're there, but not very much at all is moving or being replenished. We let the waitress know.

The manager comes: "If you don't like it, then you can leave!" Is this the service industry or...? On Mother's Day.

A customer at another table spoke up after he witnesses the manager yell at one of the moms I was sitting with. Not about to pay $30 each for 7 people. The waitress was A+, though.

“Awful Mother's Day brunch ripoff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Where do i begin? Arrived at 2 pm for our reservation but waited for 20 minutes. Music loud and inappropriate. But the biggest problem....there was no food. Nothing replenished. Most meat or fish was 80 percent rice or pasta. Some food undercooked. Carving station ok but i dont eat beef orpork. 3 desserts to choose from a mousse, cookie, or Cake. Really? 30 a head! At one point i was wandering around with a bisquit on my plate for 15 minutes looking or some protein. They need to take a trip to some great buffets for perspective. Like the one at Stoney Brooke grill in raritan, nj. That's how you run a buffet. I was here when thy first opened for dinner and it was great. The only saving grace was the wait staff, who, tried to be overly helpful to accommodate the terrible and lack of food. I really feel taken advantage of and will never go back again. Ever.
