Please tell the hostess to check people in who have a reservation and give them a table first and not take in folks that are walk in. I was told to wait and others were given tables before because they were a walk-in.

Food was okay. Diners were very well spaced out. Server nearly ruined a bottle of wine by breaking the cork. A manager came by and saved her.

Booked a week in advance, outdoor setting, there were plenty of times available at the time of booking, specified special occasion. At the host check in time they decided to seat my family in a far corner inside of the restaurant. I asked why? “Because we are pretty booked”. Well... After I insisted to go outdoors, they found an OK option in the tent, outside, not the best seating. Food and service was good. Choppy, inattentive check in service didn’t set a dinner in a right no. Will I come again? May be, for an occasional dinner. Will I come for a celebration? Definitely no.

We’ve had very nice dinners here before.(3 years ago) but it’s obviously gone through a big change. It was 5:30pm way before any big dinner rush & yet there were crumbs everywhere on the booth bench. The menus were stained with food yet they gave them to us anyway. The food was also unrefined.

Ordered the salmon with the Stars of Michelangelo cocktails, both were delicious. Customer service was great and rapid. The only issue we had was that the meals were timed. I believe it’s about an hour and ten minutes per reservation due to COVID-19. It was the first I’ve heard of it but it’s not unlikely for COVID-19 restrictions.

I made outdoor birthday dinner reservations 2 weeks in advance. I had spoken to them twice that morning regarding outdoor dining. When I got there 10 minutes early, they had no table scheduled for me. We were a party of 6 and they only had 2 outdoor tables for 6. They were seating a person at one table as I arrived and the other table was seated 20 minutes before I got there and had no need for a table for 6. They offered me inside - no! Then they offered the outdoor tent which we finally took. This is too far away for servers to adequately take care of their customers. The final straw was soup being served with no spoon. By the time the server stopped by and I said I needed a spoon and she later returned with one, the soup was tepid at best. I took it to go. I understand this is Covid and restaurants are trying to do their best but the courtesy of honoring reservations is a priority in this time, since we could not go anywhere else without one. We were stuck. I will not be returning.

Found hair literally baked into calamari piece. Was taken off the bill and all, but still pretty much killed our appetite on such a big celebration for us. Fire alarm was going off for 20+ minutes. Just wasn’t the most ideal date, that we had looked forward to for so long.

Thank you to all the staff that attended to our group and went out of their way to accommodate us , even though our group couldn't sit together. You all made my daughter's birthday special. She was determined not to spend another birthday inside lockdown.

I would not recommend this restaurant. Service was polite but we had multiple problems getting the correct drinks and food. Some of the dishes were decent (Caesar salad), but the roasted chicken entree was very bland, and was served almost cold. One of the specials we ordered had to be sent back (we never do that). It was removed from the bill, so thanks for that.

Atmosphere was not great. They could maybe add some candles to the tables, or a fire pit or something. It was not very pleasant place for 2 people to eat a $150 meal.

My wife and I went for a date night and the experience was great! Our server was personable and forgiving of our terrible pronunciations of the menu items. We had a quaint outdoor table next to some greenery, which felt like we were dining anywhere else but a bustling city. We’ll definitely be back, next time for the cannoli!
