We had a reservation for 6:30 PM on December 31, 2021. We were a party of 5. Everything at this restaurant is top notch, from ambiance, courtesy treatment and food. Sadly, we didn't get the best waiter to service our table. A little rude and ill-mannered. Otherwise, I would have given it a 5 star review. Rene Rivera Morillo

Valet service available and always a very friendly team that greets you at the door. Wonderful meal amongst friends. The only negative thing I could say about our most recent visit was that we were a party of five and they stuck us at the first table of the dining room by the entrance so we had a lot of foot traffic walking by our table. I think it would make more sense to put a party of two As the first tables in the dining room by the entrance, put the table up against the wall and then seat of the larger parties at the back of the restaurant. I’m not claiming to have experience as a restaurant manager, but it’s unpleasant to have constant foot traffic right at the entrance. Other than that delicious food with high prices to match.

Wonderful table, excellent service and great food. The lamb was the best we have had in a long time. Highly recommend. The filet and lobster also excellent. Then they gave us this awesome dessert for our anniversary. They truly made the evening wonderful. Highly recommend.

Visited for the first time for my birthday dinner. Restaurant seated us within 5 minutes of our reservation. My birthday table was decorated nicely! Service was excellent. Our server was so attentive to us. The food was exquisite and delicious! Only negative comment was that the floor had some debris in places...just needed to be swept up. We had a truly wonderful dining experience! Highly recommended!
