“Try the Waygu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

The steaks were great. Try the Waygu, it's the American version of Kobe steak and it is worth the extra money. The sides were just okay so I gave it a four but the steak is worth the shuttle ride.

“Breakfast Was Not A Success”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful spot to eat outdoors, but unfortunately the food was not up to prior visits. Omelets were overcooked, the smoked salmon was not the same preparation as the menu promised. Still, the service was great and the frsh fruit cups were quite good. You could do worse, but you could certainly do better...especially at this price.

The steak was average in taste, way over priced $$$$$
Crowded dining room, and loud. Service was good.

“Burnt steak and flavorless sides.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

Don't bother with this place. My steak, which I asked to be cooked through and not pink (hello, I'm pregnant--don't serve us ladies undercooked food) came back burned everywhere on the exterior. Why did they even put that on my plate? If you can't serve a steak that isn't pink without burning it, then let the customer know in advance! The sides were completely flavorless. I had a nice chocolate dessert that I could have enjoyed more had the rest of the meal not been so terrible. It may have just tasted good because everything else was so bad. Beware.
