Love this spot!
I had the awesome nachos and my bride had chicken picatta—both were memorable.
Our server, Olivia, was beyond excellent!

With the exception of the great service from our waiter, this was a lack luster experience and we would not return. We were seated directly in front of the kitchen, and when asked could we be moved, the response was there would be a 20 minute wait, although there were several open tables throughout the restraint and we had a 8pm reservation. Due to where we were seated the noise level was very high, and it was a distraction the entire time. Someone in the kitchen was wearing bright orange pajama pants… something I didn’t need or want to see.

The food was not tasty, we ordered the nachos and lobster roll… the lobster roll was over saturated in a Mayo type sauce and the nachos had a bbq flavor that didn’t meat the mark.

The bathroom were filthy, hair was in the sink, and stuff was smeared on the toilets.

We’ve been waiting to eat here and needless to say, we will not be returning. $70 wasted.

This used to be one of our favorite places to dine . The quality of the food and service has deteriorated considerably. We made a small special request for a food substitution that was not honored even after speaking with the manager. Our food was cold when it was served and our server wore her mask so that her nose was exposed. She was inexperienced and inattentive. She never refilled our beverages or offer dessert.

I enjoyed the atmosphere and our waitress, Olivia, was great! I loved the bread & dip and nachos. However, I didn't enjoy my meal so much. The penne alla vodka was not what I expected and there wasn't too much flavor to it. Pretty disappointed with my meal, but overall, good experience.

The caprese burger was AWFUL. It was soggy as were the fries. My friend ordered the dumplings and she did not like them. I tried and agreed with her that they were chewy and not terribly warm. The sauce they were served with was not so tasty either. We had a pitcher of sangria that was quiet good and our server was so very kind and attentive...he gets 5 stars!

Always loved this place but menu items decreased and lots of our fav dishes are no longer offered. They need to bring their full menu back now that things have opened back up. Until then we probably won’t go back.

Nice dinner but frustrating that we have coupons with no expiration date but the manager would not honor them.
Also we are frequent diners there and in the past you were able to get a tiny cup to taste the new sangria flavor(s). They no longer allow that which is a shame because some of the new options sound good but since we always order a pitcher we are afraid to try something new in case we don’t like it.

From start to finish there was no interaction with the manager and now that I’m thinking about it, he interacted with the table next to us, but did not bother to interact with even when we had issues with the bill, the waitress had to ho back 4Xs, it took us 30 minutes between getting her attention (not her fault) and getting the bill straight, which I blame on the manager. When I enter the restaurant he didn’t acknowledge although we were standing eye to eye. Chili & corn chowder salty and I barely ate my salad. If he is the main mgr now, i will not return to this establishment...poor customer service from the manager, not the waitress...she was trying her best to accommodate in spite of.

For a Friday evening we were able to get a reservation very easy and that was great. Everyone at restaurant was very polite from the moment we walked in. The hostess asking where we would like to sit was great. Our server was polite the entire time. She was so sweet. I told my husband she reminded us of our sister in law. The appetizers we ordered were the bang shrimp and the Philly cheesesteak egg rolls. The shrimp were very good and had great heat to them. The egg rolls weren’t. They tasted like had come right out of the box and the mustard that was on the bottom didn’t add to the flavor at all.

My husband ordered the burger and he enjoyed every bite to the point he forgot to offer his wife one!!! But that’s not a restaurant complaint that’s mine. I made the mistake of ordering my salmon “simple” I didn’t realize that would take away the flavor. I should have just had it the way it was on the menu. The Sauvignon Blanc that order was crisp and helped to wash down everything that I ate. All and all it was a great night out in Woodbridge with no little person and not having to worry about ordering off the kids menu.

What I truly loved the most was looking up and seeing a black woman in the kitchen as head chef. I’m not sure if she was the Executive chef or the head Soux Chef but I know #RepresentationMatters especially in the culinary world! That reason alone I will be back.

It was my birthday. My husband made reservation and they couldn’t find it. Said it would be an hour wait. I looked in the app and it said you had availability in 1/2 so I made reservations. When it was time we went to the podium. She said she would be right with us. We waited another 15 minutes and they were letting you get people be seated befor us. 20 minutes after our reservation time because my husband asked again we were seated. I think it is because we were older and you are wanting a younger crowd that we were not seated. The hostess was very rude. Once we were seated everything was great. It was our spot. We got engaged there. It’s been our spot since we got married two years ago. But after this and the menu is just never changing, I’m not sure we will go back. So very disappointed

Surprised to be told that the gluten free bread is now an extra charge. My food was brought just as ordered, as I have dietary restrictions. My husband wasn’t too thrilled with his entree, though. I think the menu has been cut back drastically since the pandemic hit, and we had a hard time finding things we would like to order.
