Best thing about our evening was the overzealous valet. He was the most over friendly valet I've ever had.
Ok, only probably half of the restaurants lights were working. You say that's not their problem? Hostess said it was happening all day. Call the electric company or an electrician. Lights coming on and off, up and down does not make for an comfortable evening.
The menu is VERY confusing and the waiter trying to explain what was a decent size portion, or what could be ordered in a half portion and no items for kids to choose from was annoying when trying to order. We were a party of nine and only two people liked their meal. By the time we were done with the meal we just wanted to get our checks and leave. I do not have a problem paying for a good meal if it's good. These were not good meals. For the prices I would expect to be blown away. We were not. It was not only one or two people but no one left happy. Two people said there meals were OK, that's it. The olive pate' I think it was that was spread on top of the filet was silly at best. good way to ruin the filet. The macaroni side that came with the grouper was tasteless. The lasagna was ok at best. The small pizza was cold and no good. I could go on, the free birthday dessert was maybe two days old it seemed like. The server did ok but he helped confuse the whole explanation of the menu. Living close by and wanting to go here for a long time and trying to have a nice dinner out for my wife's birthday was a big disappointment. I don't understand the great reviews. Drive 20 minutes south to Naples, go to the Mercato and eat at Bravo Italian restaurant. Half the price, twice the portion, and 10 times the quality. Big waste of around $400 for the evening, tips already included. Definitely will not be back and cannot recommend this restaurant.
