“Top notch restaurant!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We had a business dinner there and Eric, our waiter, was extremely attentive and recommended some excellent dishes! The Alaskan King Crab Legs were the best we ever had. The calamari was done in a teriyaki sauce with sesame seeds and was excellent! We had the sea bass, snapper and surf and turf (which you can design yourself with whatever type of steak and seafood you want).. All were exceptional!!!! We sat at a table outside and it was lovely with a fountain and a nice breeze. The inside looked like a very trendy place and the staff were all very friendly and welcoming.

“Cocktails and tuna”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Ahi tuna poki and a cucumber gimlet. Say no more, that's all you need. Smashing atmosphere in the outside bar with comfy couches, side. Bar smashing for private events.

“Exceptional Service and Menu”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We hosted a customer event in one of the restaurant's private rooms. Could not have asked for better service, our servers were all over it, and incredibly accommodating. Everything on our prix fixe menu was delicious, all the way through to the chocolate peanut butter dessert. Be sure and leave room for dessert. The private room was really nice too and includes AV for presentations. Highly recommend the restaurant for personal or professional dining.

“Perfect for a special night”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I'm in the restaurant business & can be uber critical when it comes to dining out. It's very rare, everything is perfect from beginning to end. Everytime I've eaten here...it's perfection. Offers lunch & dinner in a very upscale atmosphere. Offers both indoor & outdoor patio seating. Prices definitely reflect being an upscale establishment. Specializes in seafood & steak. Carrot cake is TO DIE FOR!!!! And may I suggest the frozen grapefruit fizz drink they make from scratch!

“Amazing Place For Lunch”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

This is a super nice place to take someone for a business lunch. The salads are amazing. the Shellfish Cobb Salad and the Crab Wedge we ordered was almost too much for one person to each. The fresh bread they bring to the table is great. The staff and atmosphere are excellent.
