    It was our first time visiting and we had an amazing time. My son is 5 and he loved the show as did I. The food was very tasty and the filet was extremely tender. The grilled vegetables were our favorite overall due to the flavor blast they had. Henry did an amazing job and for our first time we will return as it was so enjoyable. I do suggest reservations as it was not terribly busy when we went for a Sunday early dinner but on a Friday or Saturday night I could see this place being extremely popular.

    Worst experience ever. Had a reservation for 8:30p. Was seated at 8:40. Sat for 20-30 min without any service. Finally got a waiter to take our drink order, and that took another 15-20 min. We finally placed our food orders in and an hour and a half later, we finally get a chef. It was ridiculous!!! Other parties sat down and left and we were just getting our food cooked!!! Our food was over seasoned and to top it off, after complaining to the managers, no one checked in on us! Will never go back!

    Service was terrible. It took an hour just to get our soup and salad and another hour before we could start eating our meal so we didn’t leave the restaurant until 2 1/2 hours after our reservation and the food was OK.
