“Let down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Friendly staff but poor service. We put in our children's order way before our order & ours came out first. For those parents of children they were melting because of hunger. The food quality for the price was disappointing. Used a coupon and management is sneaky as the check had gratuity already included. Last I checked tipping is on service, food, and presentation. Not sure I will be back.

“Very disappointing!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

After several years of hearing how good this restaurant is we finally joined another couple for dinner two nights ago. Although the wait staff was excellent, we were greatly dissappointed in the quality of the food for the price. My friend sent back her Lobster Fra Diavlo after getting a whif of the lobster. The wait staff was very polite, offering to bring the menu for another selection. When the bill arrived the owner had only deducted the price of the lobster in the dish, charging us for the remaining seafood that she had asked be brought out on a seperate plate. We certainly will not be going back there. OVERPRICED & OVERRATED!!!

“Shame on them”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a party there tonight. The party started at 6:30 appetizers were not served until 8:30. The food was OK but not worth the cost of the meal. I will never return there

“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

The food was excellent the night we went. I wonder how they have so many specials. It was very quiet....holiday weekend, but the staff was attentive and pleasant.

“Just Doesn't Cut It”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

For year's we had always heard this was the place to go to for a special upscale Italian dining experience. We have tried it a few times over the years and always been disappointed based on that benchmark. Well we tried it again. and once again were disappointed. I tried the Carpaccio and it was so cold my teeth hurt as I tried to eat it. The main course was fine, just not memorable. The decor is really looking tired. So we may in a few years try this place again but we will have to wait till we once again forget the most recent dining experience.
