    Waitress forgot our salad. She didn’t even realize. Our meals were delivered 5 minutes apart. My seafood was cold by the time our 3rd guest received his food. The house wine was rancid, we sent it back, said she would take it off the bill. Instead she changed me for a Frank Family Merlot @ $20.-/glass, which I never even ordered. The bread : Garlic nots were burnt and hard, not worth the $18.- for bread.

    We had a great dinner Saturday evening outside on the patio. The jazz quartet added to the ambiance, and the lobster ravioli and chicken parmesan were amazing! Topped it off with one of the best espresso martinis I’ve had.

    What OPEN TABLE calls energetic in their "ambience rating, I call NOISE. There was a band playing very LOUD and we couldn't hear ourselves talking. Food was MEH but our waiter was great. Place had a bit of a smell to it that older establishments get after awhile.

    Third time I’ve been here and the food never disappoints! Major BIO conference in town so service was a little slower and noise level was a little louder than usual but no fault of the restaurant.

    Excellent mushroom ravioli and blue cheese bacon wedge. And the live music on Thursday is like the enjoying the highest caliber singer in Vegas but a more intimate setting. And the jazz trio on Saturday is world class. Highly recommend both nights. DMR

    Food was just ok, nothing that really blew me away. We had the lobster arancini, which were a bit over fried. The Caprese Salad was just ok, could have used more pesto or even a bit of fresh basil in there as well. The Mushroom Ravioli were definitely the star of the evening. The waitress was helpful even if somewhat lacking in attentiveness. We waited a long time for our food. Although it was a very busy night with the concert happening at Petco. I can't say I would go there again, but it was a decent meal before the show.
