I ordered the sea bass on the recommendation from the server. It came out virtually raw! Everything else was overrated as well. Bartender was great but food was a gigantic disappointment!

The food was ok, nothing great. The service was average. The bathroom was not very clean. Unlikely to go again.

The food was quite good but the portions are enormous. If you order the calamari appetizer, which was wonderful, order one for two people. Delicious & just a bit spicy. The same with the main course. Delicious but huge portions.
