It’s hard to rate ambiance for outdoor dining in a tent. If we were inside. I would have rated it at least a four star. Food and service are always a pleasure.

The food and service was as always very good. No complaints. I just thought the restaurant was crowded and not all tables were 6 feet apart. When we first sat down the room was fairly empty but then they brought in a party of eight and they were right behind us. They need to do a better job of separating the tables

Outstanding evening, the restaurant is working under the pandemic guidelines which provides a large separation between tables. The services was great, the menu selection were diverse and excellent. One of the specials was an apple glazed veal rib chop which was melt in your mouth I coupled it with a gargonzola and apple salad. The wife had a seafood meal of shrimp, sea scallops and crab meat over rice, coupled with the GM chop salad. The waiter and staff stopped during the evening to make sure everything was to our satisfaction

Our first time at the "original" we have only gone to Grillfire or GM Burger Bar before. Mentioned it was an anniversary when booking on OpenTable but nothing noted by the hostess or wait staff. Food was delicious, nice quiet table in the corner. We had the special appetizer roasted beets with burrata it was perfect. Steaks were cooked to order. Would come again!

First time going to this restaurant and the way we were treated was just amazing. My boyfriend has an allergy to black pepper, and although most dishes brought black pepper, But Jorge our amazing server made sure that none of the entrees we ordered brought black pepper. Jorge and the management went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and attend our needs. They made sure everything was taking care of. The food was amazing, so tasty and fresh. We were celebrating our anniversary and they even brought a surprise sweet treat. That was lovely. Will definitely come back and bring everyone in the family to enjoy this hidden gem!
