The service was superb! The Buffalo cauliflower delicious. The pan seared scallops and P3 were outstanding as was the polenta they were served on. It was so good we are going back tomorrow for brunch.

All eight of us enjoyed our meals. There was not a complaint among us.

Not bad but nothing that wows me. Service was a tad slow and food was good but expensive. I would probably look elsewhere next time.

Breakfast, Lunch Or Dinner, Especially Dinner, Outrageous Pricing. Small Portions. Average Food At Best. Some of the dishes are outright terrible tasting, Which They think are unique. DO NOT BRING YOUR FAMILY OR GROUPS TO THIS PLACE. ITS CHEAPER AT FIND RESTAURANT. Save your time and money.

Food is okay, not as great as they would like to have you think. Prices are high. Music is nice. Staff is a mixed bag - some are very good and helpful, others not so much. This was a better place before the expansion.

The food was fine but they do not offer table service at lunch. Our bill was $65 for 2 people at lunch. I do not drink but my friend did had a couple of glasses of wine.

We arrived by car in Lakeland, Fla. We had 6 hours to kill before catching the train back to NC. I have to say everyone in this town is VERY friendly. Stopped here by chance. It was a busy day with college graduations going on and they kept apologizing for the wait but we didn't feel it was unnecessarily long.... More
