“Wonderful Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We had the best salmon we have ever had anywhere. Service could have been better but the food overshadowed a somewhat seemingly disinterested waiter.

“Great tortilla soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We ate in the lounge after a spa day and had wonderful Tortilla soup. It was so delicious. Just the right amount of heat. The serving size was ideal. We enjoyed the atmosphere in the lounge and the service was good. Great people watching

“Good place for a special dinner, but didn't blow me away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We had a celebratory dinner here recently. The atmosphere was nice, though not spectacular. The service was fantastic - our server, Juan, was very obliging. The food was quite good, but didn't blow us away. The tortilla soup is "award-winning"...it was good, but could have been better. My NY Strip was good, but lacked a bit in flavor. The desserts were the highlight but I was stuffed by then! I might go back, but I'd probably try another place first.
