    The experience was sub-par. Food was average at best. My steak was over done as was the sea bass.

    It took servers 16 minutes to bring us a menu. Some courses were well-timed, but others had long waits in between. The food was uneven. The filet mignon was of fine quality, but the demiglace way a pre-made product featuring canned mushroom pieces. Farm fresh wasn't part of the equation. My dining companion's sea bass was nicely cooked, but the sauce was flavorless. Her pork belly appetizer was oddly dry and tough. The desert was nice, but our first choice was sold out. All told, it was OK, but nothing special.

    Tried fixed menu during restaurant week. There was a lot of food (4courses) for good price but the food was horrible - pork belly appetizer was still frozen, salads came 20 minutes later, the shabby sea bass filet was way undercooked. Desserts were good. Won’t be going back!

    Sea bass was quite fishy tasting and smelled off. Surprised tha they served old fish for the first night of Restaurant Week. Broccolini was also overcooked. Service was pleasant and helpful.

    Our service was absolutely terrible. Our waiter seemed more concerned about getting to a festival than doing his job. We told him it was our friends birthday and he did nothing. Our drinks came out after the food and he didn’t give us last call for drinks so we weren’t able to get a second round. He also added gratuity without even asking us on a bill below 200. We have all worked in the service industry at our table and where shocked how bad the service was. Bald skinny Italian dude. Will not be coming back.

    Had a reservation for over a week and they sat us in the back corner near the bussing station. Service was slow, food was lackluster. Ambiance was zero in the back room, they may as well have sat us in the alley behind the restaurant.

    The food is not good. They pre make stuff and then wait for people to order and warm it up. Fish was still raw. Steak (40$) was burned to a crisp (ordered medium) it was just a legit mess. The only good party was that they comped the meal. I wish the food was better. Think they need a rework.

    We initially had a female server that was not very well customer oriented. We asked for a different server and he was awesome. Our night was great after that. Prior to that me and my husband visited this restaurant and our server Santiago. OUTSTANDING SERVICE.

    I didn’t realize when I set my reservation that I was going at a time during a baseball game and a country music concert- that being said parking was AWFUL. My friends and I all looked around for an hour. Thus making us all very late to my reservation. But they held onto my table for me (we were 14 people) and the server was so sweet and made my birthday very special! The food was delicious and the drinks too !

    The food was delicious- everyone’s meal arrived hot, quickly and tasted great. The service however was slow and unorganized. I made a reservation for a party of 6 and was told when I got there it would still be a 20 minute wait. It took 3 requests to get a bottle of sparkling water and a glass with lime.

    Food was ok, bloody Mary's were kind of disappointing - no bleu cheese olive, old bacon. The drinks themselves were slightly overpowered without enough savoriness/spice to neutralize the taste of vodka.

    The review gets 1 less star because of the initial rudeness of the manager. And hope he can modify his behaibor. We got to the restaurant and as we approached the reception he started to speak to the receptionist in another languague, out loud, sounded arabic. (This is rude in any way you see it). The lady took us to the inside of the restaurant and once she showed us the table I pointed out that we had outside seating reservation. The manager at this point was following us. He came to me and said it was what it was because he couldn´t honor our reservation. I guess he thought we were going to obey his rude commands. But we didn´t sit. I started browsing Open Table app for near by restaurants. Once he saw this, he changed his mind and suddenly there was this great outside table. After the incident, all was great. My wife and I had a great "date" night. The drinks, appetizers and pasta were all delicious. And the serving outstanding from a Sicilian waiter. At the end, the incident was forgotten, and hopefuly no one gets that kind of treatment.

    We were seated immediately upon arrival even though we arrived 15 mins early. Our waiter was very busy with other tables but tried to be attentive which was appreciated. The food was okay, I ordered the carbonara and it had bits of scrambled egg in it which means it wasn’t incorporated properly but the overall flavor was good. My husband enjoyed his fettuccine and the crab artichoke jar was a bit spicy but good.

    Disappointing experience. The mussels in the cioppino my husband ordered smelled terrible and most of them didn’t even open…they were very obviously “off,” so we couldn’t believe they even served the dish. The casarecce pasta dish I ordered was supposed to be pasta in a pistachio pesto, but it was literally pasta floating in green oil. Unfortunately, we were not the only patrons having issues. The ladies behind us sent their drinks back twice for being too weak. Rather than bringing them a shot of alcohol to add to their beverages and fix the situation, the waitress told them the “bartender was new and not as good as the regular one.” When the couple beside us asked for pepper they were told the restaurant was closing and “the busboys already put the shakers away” and the waitress instead brought them a ridiculous soup bowl with some black pepper loose in the bottom. I hate to write bad reviews, but this whole experience was just too strange and unfortunate to let go by without comment.

    We were seated in an area that was supposedly closed. Server made that quite clear. I asked for water refills and bread and olive oil, which we never received. There were seven of us in the group when the bill came there was a 20% gratuity added to the bill. Not OK!

    Server was argumentative after he brought the wrong wine to the table and the wrong food for two of the four people in the party. It was still the wrong food brought out the second time, but we didn’t want to wait for an additional attempt at correcting it. The noise level was extremely loud (perhaps contributing to the server not properly hearing our orders correctly), restaurant smelled overwhelmingly like a dank bar (even though we were not seated by the bar area). Embarrassed that this place was my choice to bring friends to for a get-together. Would absolutely NOT return and would absolutely NOT recommend.

    I was disappointed with our waitress at dinner last night. We were never told of the nightly specials until we heard our waitress telling another table after we had already ordered. Our waitress never checked to see how our meal was at any point during our dinner. After we ate we were not asked if we wanted another drink or dessert.
