    Food was good - not great, but good...except for steak. Ordered medium rare and served well done, but staff was quite apologetic and brought a different dish (as my friend no longer wanted steak). seafood tower was fabulous, cacio e pepe was good, as was the linguine/clams. Service was impeccable. The place was quite hopping for a Sunday evening - we would definitely go back.

    Requested a window table for a special occasion a month in advance but we were sat at a table squished in the middle of the room which was very disappointing.

    Host didn’t smile. Pleasant image but needs to lose the robotic facial expressions. Service was terrible. I think our server forgot about us. Manager tunnel vision in the dining room. Sort of a reflection of his staff working.

    Ambience was great. Service was ok, bartender walked by us several times before greeting us and was very short.

I apologize for the delay and the brevity of the bartender's interaction. We'll address this with our team to ensure better service in the future. Your feedback is important to us, and we hope you'll give us another chance to provide a better experience next time. Best Regards, Jewel, Food & Beverage Manager
