Great food. The fried calamari, mahi-mahi and veal parmesan were great. Decent service - it'll probably be better once stimulus checks end in September and they can hire more staff. However, it was so noisy and loud in the main dining room that we had to shout to hear one another, and even then we only heard each other half the time. I don't know if it was normal for a Saturday night, but there were at least 3 tables that were way, way too loud - it's like they didn't know they were in a public restaurant. By the time we finished our meals, it was all we could take. We really wanted to stay for dessert, but decided we wanted relief from the noise even more. It's a shame - we really wanted to like this place, and there's a lot to like, but with plenty of other options in the area, we'll probably never go back. The possibility of dealing with that much noise again isn't worth the risk to us.

Very glad you enjoyed the food and service. We are sorry that some of the other guests were overly loud on the night you were here, we have alot of different rooms to seat people in and could have moved you to a quieter area. It is unfortunetly beyond our control the volume of voice our patrons use. We hope you will give us another try, coming back to enjoy our food and service. Thank you, Scott

As usual food was very good. It was a long time giving our drink order. A longer time getting our salads. I attribute all of this to the fact the restaurant was packed and there was a sign at the entrance they were having staffing issues, like everyone else. Will go back!

Pre Pandemic, Post Pandemic, the food quality is and always has been top notch, the service is personal, prompt and attentive (even with the current staffing issues, which all businesses are suffering from). The restaurant is clean and attractive, make a reservation or you will wait. The wine and cocktail menu's are broad and have something to appeal to a range of tastes. This is our go to restaurant, try it and it will be on your short list as well. I could go on and on gushing about the place but you should visit soon.

My linguine dish was heavily salted had to send it back.

Portions very small for the amount charged.

Two line chefs walked out on the operator in the middle of dinner service.

Waiter was excellent. Will try the place again in three or four years.

TrovSenior, sorry to hear that you dish was heavily salted. hopefully the second one was flavored properly. I am unsure of what you are speaking about with our line cooks, they have all been with us for many years, fortunetly, and are all still employed. Hopefully you can give us another oportunity to serve you soon. Our apologies again for the over salted entree. Thank you

An amazing find. We were picking someone up from Atlantic City airport and this is a short distance away from it. Very clean and spacious dining room with every classic Italian design you could want (coming from an Italian).

Our waitress Ardis was so very attentive and kind. When the pianist was starting their set, she noticed one section’s speakers were louder than the rest and promptly had the audio lowered.

Food was simply delicious, fresh seafood and excellent portion sizes. Even the table bread was amazing, reminiscent of the Bronx. Would highly highly recommend to anyone nearby or passing through who is in the mood for a good meal and classy ambiance.

2nd time here and the food and service was excellent once again and my Coconut Creme Pie Martini was equally scrumptious. We were staying at The Water Club and had later reservations for Ruth Chris but came here earlier instead. We were immediately greeted and our server was a little busy so another waitress came over to get our drink order and bring some delicious bread and oil. Our waitress Beth(hope I didn’t mess up her name) and I think the first waitress began with an E. Our waitress was very patient with my husband and his limited diet. Everything was great and he loved the blackened halibut. Thank you.
