“You pretty much have to tackle a server to get anything here. Awful Service, Orders wrong, etc. Horrible.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

This was, by far, my most expensive awful meal in years. Was seated on the patio, with about 20 menus on the table. We figured a server would be right over to clean the mess as promised. 15 minutes later a server finally shows up and doesn't even notice that there is a table full of menus, no tablecloth, or silverware. I could go on and on, but here's the short and not so sweet. No silverware. No oil/vinegar. Food came as soon as we were finally served our salad. No bread. Wrong meal. Was told by manager that I was wrong, until I cut my chicken open and showed him it was NOT the stuffed chicken. Then he blamed the server. 2nd round of drinks did not arrive until the bill did. Was told they would be taken off the bill, but we supposedly were comped, because of the screw ups. Was not happy. Won't go back. Manager was an idiot. Table next to us was having the same issues and the manager basically told them that he is too busy to listen and if they didn't want to wait for the right food then they should just leave. Wish we had that option.

“Great Staff with Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

Went here two years ago and could't wait to get back. It was better than before. They change their menu about every three months now. Sat at the beautiful bar and the service from Brittany was terrific. Went back a second time and Brittany remembered what we liked "right to the water with no ice please." She is great and so is the restaurant. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

“Good mainstream Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

Can't say I would frequent but good tasting fare and pleasant service. Kind of pedestrian wine choices and the kitchen was totally out of sync with staff as our appetizers were half done when the entree showed up. Value was good.
