    Very beautiful restaurant with lovely indoor & outdoor seating. Food was great with hefty portion sizes as well. The Short Rib & the Lamb Chops were fabulous. The only issue was the service. Our server left in the middle of dinner, which also left 3 other tables, stranded. The service could and should be better than it was.

    The servers were nice, poolside setting cool, drinks great but the food was absolutely taste-free (if you're lucky). Deviled Eggs looked beautiful and tasted like tires, were banished within moments and some gagging. Short-ribs perfect in texture and appearance but 100% free of any flavor, you'll want to take a covid test but it's not you, it's the chef. Oh, and abusive pricing.

    A wonderful experience on Mother’s Day. The food and ambience was beyond what we expected. Having brunch under our own canopy made our Mother’s Day celebration memorable. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

    There was only one waiter. He was overworked and behind. We ordered two dishes to share. The waiter said it was not enough food for us, so we ordered another dish. The good news is that the portions were large. On the other hand we had too much food, so we sent the extra dish back. We waited forever for our check, until someone else came and settle our tab. We won’t be back there.

    Service was painfully slow. What should have been a 90 minute brunch, took 3 hours. We had to flag servers anytime we needed anything. I booked this spot because it showed up on a dog friendly list, but I had to ask for water for him three times before getting it. Food was great, drinks were inconsistent. We ordered 3 rounds of the Crimson and it was a different color each time. I would not go back.
