“Expensive But Worth It”
Reviewed February 4, 2008

Dinner Sat night, Jan 2008, with another couple to celebrate our anniversary. Despite the valet parking, the ambiance was less formal than we had thought it would be, but we quickly got use to the busy scene. All our seafood dishes were great, as was the short ribs, and the desserts were fine also. Wine selection was good and varied. Service was wonderful, and when we left some 2 hours later our $300+ bill (for 4 of us and some serious wine) seemed money well spent.

“disappointing”
Reviewed February 4, 2007

We chose this restaurant for the end of our 2 weeks in Florida. The restaurant is well laid out but, for a first class restaurant, it was disconcerting to see a tv tuned to sports in the bar. It was a jarring contrast to the restaurant itself. The food was very good but the service was poor. The waitress was MIA most of the time except to bring the food as fast as she could, too fast in fact. We told her to keep it slow as we wanted to relax, but the appetizer arrived about 5 minutes after it was ordered and the mains about one minute after the starter was removed When a knife was removed from the table, having been used with the starter, a replacement was not brought for the main course until I asked for it after about 5 minutes of waiting. When we finished our entrees, the waitress just dropped the dessert menu on the table and walked away. When she came back and we declined dessert the bill arrived within 30 seconds, before we even finished our wine. She did not bother to even ask if we wanted coffee. We felt rushed and unwanted.
