We were greated promptly and seated by Angela. She was very friendly. The crab and lobster fondue is delicious. Highly recommended. My husband really enjoyed his tuna. The French fries could use less seasoning but overall food was of good quality.

I moved to Florida 7 years ago. I was back visiting recently, and went to this restaurant. I was surprised at some of the negative reviews and was wondering whether the quality had dropped off. It hadn't. I ordered the filet, the sweet potato dumplings and the green beans. The filet was cooked as ordered. Everything was delicious and as... More

Our food was amazing! Everything tastes great! Our server was not attentive and after waiting 45min after eating we had to flag him over to order dessert. He only had 5 tables so no idea why we were neglected. The acoustics are also off in this place - the bar area was full and bc of this we had to... More

We, several friends, went there to have dinner. The staff was amazingly attentive. They set up a huge table for all of us. I had a very nice grilled fish with a kind of homemade lemon spicy sauce. The bar is special with several options from fine wine to creative cocktails. A bit pricey, a lot of fun though.

We were a party of 12, with an 8:30 pm reservation. We had to wait, but that happens, and it was a busy night. Two of us had a drink at the bar, which tasted like water. When we were finally seated after 9:00 pm, we were given appetizers "on the house", for waiting (which was nice). The server announced... More

The good -the steak cooked well The not so good- although made reservations was sat right outside the kitchen, servers banged my chair at least 5 times going past. Expensive for what you get especially sides. Weird metal plates made it feel like a cheaper chain. Overall been there done it but won't be going back

The service was great, the dinner selections nice, the presentation appealing, the food very good. The wine selections were very nice as well. My only complaint is that I was shocked to see so many 'bad pieces' of lettuce in my salad, probably half of the greens had brown ends and cores.

Had an early dinner and it was perfect. The scallops were perfect, the steaks were done perfectly, service was great. Was there for a business meeting with 18 people (limited menu) and was totally different experience. It was a contracted meal and we were grossly overcharged---it was horrific.

Have lived in this area for a long time... Friends told us about this restaurant. Stopped n for drinks and appetizers. Checked out the dinner menu for another time. Selections looked very nice. The server at the bar (Julia) was VERY friendly and attentive. Will be back for dinner.
