From beginning to end the staff was very attentive, COVID conscious, and just outstanding! The food was absolutely delicious, I wish I could have ordered all of the plates that passed by. Also, dessert was amazing and highly recommend the warm apple cinnamon pie. The ambience was fun with background music that allowed for good conversation without a sense of yelling in order to be heard. Honestly, I absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a wonderful evening and can’t wait to plan my next trip back.

The service was terrible, we waited a good while for our food & drinks to come out. Then we decided to get desert cake & ice cream took 30 mins to come out & the server was not even checking up on our table or asked if there was anything else needed after taking our order!

Amazing! Great place, superb ambiance, very elegant and romantic setup inside. Food was spectacular, selection of mixed cocktails is quite good although the quality of cocktails was not consistent. The atmosphere in the inside patios (there are two patios inside) is very chic. The new third patio that was built on the parking lot due to quarantine is not nearly as nice but still good ambiance. Great spot for a date and a night out. Highly recommend!

We had a reservation booked at 10:00 PM but did not get sat until around 10:45 PM. When we went to go check back in with the hostess manager to see what the wait was for, he said that he had "forgotten about us" but we are at the top of the list to be seated. I was very upset that he did not come to check in with us to ask us again for our name so that we could be seated in a timely manner. We saw about 3 couples walk-in and immediately got sat. But once we got to our table, the food was delicious and our server was amazing. I am a little hesitant about returning because of that experience, but, I may give them another try. We waited for almost an hour before we actually got sat. Not a good feeling.

Food was excellent! We ordered the rigatoni, flatbread, Brussels sprouts and salmon tikka and everything was really great food. Ambiance was also wonderful. We were comfortable with the outdoor seating which is standard for them in non COVID times. Music was good.
Menu is quite eclectic so I wasn’t sure but loved it! Apple puff pastry was good too!

The service was horrible. The waiter took forever to get our order, and before we were even done eating she brought the check and left it on the table without saying anything.
