We were seated in a quieter section and served promptly. My filet, while tender enough to cut with fork, was very medium to rare, not medium well. They offered to correct, but the restaurant closed in an hour - so I declined, My quest had a very strange mai tai with no explanation, except that they ran out of something.

Start out by saying the food is good. We did not have reservations for our last visit. When we walked in, we saw numerous booths open but were told they were for people with reservations. They sat us (four) in a room behind the bar. We got settled, when the server asked us to move tables as they needed ours... More

Restaurant was recommended to us. Seemed like a popular hangout, crowded on a Wednesday night. Food is just okay. Better then a Chilis but not by much.

Not awesome, not terrible. Just okay. Nice resturant. Clean windows. Knives and forks provided. Kind of feel like they put as much into my food, as I did this review..

2nd time I've encountered an extremely rude hostess. Had decided to give a second chance. Seems pleased to say you can't do a call ahead after their specified time and although there's no wait now, if course there's no assurance that there won't b when u arrive. Same thing could be said in a way that gives some semblance that... More

Great food, service and atmosphere.the wait time was a little long but that was mainly because of the time of year and evening! Overall, I would visit again!

The food and service were excellent at this lunch with a friend. This is my go-to place for meeting with friends or after a movie. Staff is always courteous and this day was no exception. Can't wait to go again soon.
