“Overpriced And unimpressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Went there with extended family. I chose the place because their online menu looked like it would be a 5-star restaurant...big mistake. Waitress was slow and seemed overwhelmed even though it's a small place. Appetizers were good (scallops and lobster corn dogs) but not worth the price. For the entrees, two people ordered the ribs which were pretty decent. I had the cowboy steak. It was good but definitely not a $45 steak. My wife and mother both ordered the lobster pappardelle and sent it back. The pasta was clumped and the lobster rubbery. The manager came over much later and seemed annoyed that we sent the food back. I felt like we had to defend why the food wasn't good. This restaurant is trying to be a 5-star restaurant when it's clearly 3-star at most. Definitely not hershey quality, from now on we're sticking with the hotel.

“Very Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Let me start out by saying our chocolate martinis were excellent and then it was down hill from there. The appetizer was over cooked and taken back. Good news....they did take it off our bill. My crab cakes were good, but small. My wife said her salad we aweful. How do you mess up a salad? We were excited to go there and we were very disappointed. Wishing we had gone back to Fenicci's again.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

Way overpriced for what you get. The food was just alright, nothing special. Cost us $55 for 3 people. We ordered an appetizer, a burger, primerib sandwich, and the meatloaf. Cool place, just not a good value.
