The restaurant is laid out with a very open configuration. No booths as such. all open tables. this takes it in a very bright open pattern rather than the darker style that most mid to high end places have. Despite this it is not excessively noisy at all. What REALLY counts in a restaurant though is the food. This place... More

We dined here on a number of occasions due to proximity to our hotel. The menu is ok but somewhat limited in range. The food befits a run of the mill fast turnover grill and the service perfunctorily pleasant. There were times when it was very busy so they clearly do have appeal. A good honest, average experience.

Just moved here and decided to try this spot out. We were seated on the patio which we loved! It's big and you don't feel like your on top of people. Service was very friendly and food was very good.

If you're looking for some good West Coast fusion food and friendly service, look no further! Fluid has it all, as well as some excellent entertainment. I believe they also use a lot of locally grown food. Definitely worth checking out.

We live locally and eat out regularly and for some reason we've never tried this place. I guess maybe I thought it was more of a bar spot and they wouldn't focus too much on the food and then I may be disappointed. My wife suggested it a few weeks ago and we decided to give it a go. We... More
