“Eh - Nothing special”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

The service was pretty good, the location is great, the deco of the place is cool, but the food is mediocre.

Had the seafood platter and the shrimp and lobster were overcooked, the oysters were pretty good though.

Had steak and it wasn't juicy or very tasty. I was really hoping to have a good steak here but unfortunately it was below average.

“Very good”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We ate here for lunch and thought this place offered a great menu. The turkey burger was the best. I'm not sure if they're open for weekends but in would definitely do this for a business lunch.

“Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Went there for a birthday dinner, the restaurant wasn't too busy when we started. the waitress was very attentive, but food was just okay. starter's portion is too big, after finishing the starter, we can't finish our main. the steak we had is nice but too big. The dining area is too dark to eat.

“Great cheesecake...awful service!!!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

I was looking for a late night spot for deserts & drinks near my hotel. The hostess said that the kitchen was closing soon & we couldn't eat at a table...only at the bar. So after waiting 10 mins at the bar without being greeted, I went back to the hostess. She asked me if I knew what I wanted to order, but I had never even seen the menu! I went back to the bar with the menu. The bartender had me shout out my order from the opposite end of bar instead of walking up to where I was sitting. Thankfully the cheesecake and the strawberry sauce was delicious but the service was awful even though it wasn't busy by any means. I would never eat here again. Poor treatment of paying customers!!

“Great food but so so noisy”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

This was for an "old girls" get together and I'm still not sure what the conversation was about. I had requested a quiet area and we were seated right next to the bar. Usually by 7 a bar will wind down..not this one! The food was outstanding. We shared the sea food appetizer as our main entree and it was more than enough. The cold lobster was a bit rubbery but the shrimp and oysters were divine. Would go again but not for any sort of intimate get together.
