the owner/hostess is TERRIBLE. Slow service. Owner made family with child get up and move mid dinner so she could seat +1

Went here to eat dinner. Arrived early, about 6pm. We got in right away, no wait since we were there pretty early. We ordered appetizers right away, but they didn't arrive until 45 minutes later, which was weird because the place was NOT full. There were several open tables. There was a group of about 10 sitting near us who had arrived before us. I think they waited to make and serve all their entrees before they ever brought out our ONE appetizer. That signals to me that the kitchen staff is not professional and cannot handle big groups well. They did bring out bread and olive oil, but it wasn't great. The bread was hard and not that good.

When we finally did get our appetizer, it was good. We had the bacon scallops martini. Our food finally came out 1 hour after ordering it. I had the risotto and it wasn't that great. The others in my party had the 3 From the Sea platter and they seem satisfied with it. However, the food was AVERAGE AT BEST. Certainly not worth the outrageously expensive prices they charged for it, the SLOW service, and the decor that was absolutely nothing special. Didn't have any alcohol so can't comment on that. The waitress seemed totally indifferent the whole time, and phony. She did a pretty good job of keeping our drinks full, but never acknowledged or commented on or apologized for our long wait for food. She brought the check quickly. It was $90 for three people. We had no alcohol. We had one appetizer and three entrees (and one person actually ordered an appetizer as their entree). Not worth the money. And the wait was extremely long when we left (even though there were several open tables inside the restaurant).

Bottom line, if you are looking to go out and have a nice dinner- look elsewhere. The food is average at best and very overpriced.

We did not have a reservation but they got us in really quickly. Food was great, service was good too! The sign and exterior make it seem higher end than it is but it is definitely family friendly and the food was fairly priced.

We stopped in very quickly for a drink and light food. What we found were some AWESOME appetizers. The calamari and beef skewers are a must! Rob, the bartender, could not have been more friendly and inviting. We will be back next time for the entrees for sure.
