Cipriano gave us great customer service and was checking on us to make sure everything was ok in our table. I work in the hospitality industry and recognized the appearance he represents to the hotel. Thank you and will be coming back!

There is an abundant amount of food and all of it was OK but none of it really great. Service was great.

Weekdays are cheaper but even with a weekend rate, since you're getting a member discount, still not bad. Love the crab legs and dessert options. They have open bar- free drinks, too bad I didn't take advantage of it since I'm working.
