Having eaten there on several other occasions, we chose to take friends that were visiting us from the States, to celebrate their 30th anniversary. We were sure to mention this when we made the reservation. We were seated promptly and enjoyed drinks and appetizers and ordered our main courses. My wife's filet arrived rare and was ordered as medium. I'm not sure what happened, but the time taken to re-fire her steak was outrageously long, to the point that all three of us were completely finished with our meal, before hers was served. Needless to say the pace of the meal was disrupted and the evening was very awkward. I mus add that the anniversary of our guests was NEVER acknowledged. We all had no complaints about the quality of the food, but it could not overcome the "situation". I hope this was a blip and not a trend. I'll wait to hear from others about their experience here before going back. Sorry.

Was very fine, when the host seated us they got a table in a middle of the isle we didn’t like, so we ask to sit anywhere and gladly assist us. The food was fine, few vegetarian dishes and can ask for only for two. Desserts was very good, overall was fine. Recommended

This place is average, although they think is exceptional. The food was good, but not perfect. My duck was cold inside and tasted a bit to the freezer food.

The service was very good, but the owner and chef need some social and business skills. They both passed in front of our table 6 to 7 times, and never even say hello. We dine there for a very special occasion that was noted on the reservation, but they didn’t do anything special. Not even provided a private table for two as requested. We were assigned a regular table for 4 in front of the bar.

They need to learn a few things to be at the level they promote.

Prices are extremely high! Food was different and very good. They had a DJ after 10pm which made it difficult to talk, but, before 10pm the ambiance was lovely.

The food quality was excellent as was its presentation, unfortunately we were the only diners there plus 1 person at the bar. It’s in a popular location so the only reason I can think of for such poor(almost nil) attendance is it’s lack of advertisement. I myself found a 2 page article on it and it’s STAR chef in a local magazine and even then there was NO ADDRESS, NO TELEFONE #. If I were the owner, I’d get new PR people! I have since been telling friends who dine out frequently, and no one has heard of this restaurant. Also, had the chef/owner come over to us, I would have told him personally all of the above. We even asked to meet him, I guess he was toooo busy in the kitchen whipping up all his orders.

Restaurant was fine, but nothing special. The outstanding service of our waiter Fabian and dining Oceanside were the highpoints. Ingredients were fresh, but dishes like the lobster bisque and risotto with truffles fell flat. Filet mignon was good, but this is a seafood restaurant. Selection of dishes was also limited.

Excellent food flavors and special fusions. Love the caring attitude of the people at the restaurants. Nice, and very polite and caring. Service was way to slow though! Waited too long for the menu, for the appetizer and then for the dessert. No main dish as it was so slow we went straight to dessert. And we waited for the check a bit too.

The food is awesome flavors and the dessert very creative and tasty. Great atmosphere and ambience.

Just need to improve on speed to the right amount.
