“Great Food”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

What can I say, the food is top quality well prepared and amazingly delicious. Its spendy, but well worth the price when you are in need of treating yourself.

“Depends on you”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

I have been there a number of times and the food over all was good . At times better than just good ,depends on what you have.If you are a well versed home chef then do not expect to get too excited. At times I find the portions are small.But the price is not. Seems like the dishes all come with more filler than the main items,any pasta or rice dishes. IE shrimp,lobster ,crab etc.They serve the same roasted garlic,bread and olives in oil all the time.Kinda nice on your first ,second visit but they need to get another choice.If they are more than 1/2 full be prepare to wait for your food.IT almost seems like it is a good way to get your bar tab larger. Again, it all depends on you.If want to spend a whole even at one place and have countless things to talk about for hours,and have trouble in the kitchen,you will like it there.Oh bring a full wallet/purse .
To be fair you need to try it more than once. Would I go back ?.I think so ,just not for a while.
You can not give a real fair opinion at times because of how things get rated here.It can be used for all occasions.
