I went to this restaurant with my wife and friends around 8:30 in a very slow night upon arrival we ordered drinks and we want to order some appetizers and the server refused because he say we have to order entree because the restaurant don't allow you to order app not matter how hungry you are .in order for us to order some app we have to order 2 appetizers each afternoon we have been a very good customer for a very long time supporting then during COVID-19 that what we get the manager was very rude he's said he can't not do anything about.my friend and I will never go back to this place

Appetizers clams oreganata and garlic shrimp had no flavor at all. They made me wait 20 minutes outside because apparently you need to be 25 to get in on a Friday night even though I had reservations to eat dinner.

The staff accommodated us outside dining, a bit cool, by turning outdoor heaters on and off according to our whims.
Food excellent, risotto with filet tips and mushrooms...
Excellent experience...
My compliments to Francis...hope to see her next visit.

Made a reservation for me and my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. I made a request for a birthday dessert at the end of dinner and we never received one or any acknowledgment. I don’t have a large appetite and I appreciate fine dining but the portions for dinner are extremely small- it’s like a kid’s meal. We were still hungry after an appetizer and our entrees. Pretty poor value considering the price tag. The sauce for the black cod dish was overly sweet. I asked for a substitution for this dish and was quickly turned down, no big deal but strange they don’t accommodate that. The view is great and the ambiance is beautiful with the city’s skyline. That’s what you’re paying for. There’s plenty of other restaurants along that road with the same view and better food.

We had a reservation for 2 pm, on time and we were seated promptly. The restaurant had a few scattered occupants. We were seated by the water side, placed our order for drinks, placed our order for entres, while waiting, and 80% of the restaurant is empty, they sat a party of 5 at the table next to us, certainly no more than ONE foot away, I can smell the next person’s deodorant. In COVID times, the rules of social distancing apply still for outside seating. I expressed my concerns to the waitress who said she can’t do anything about it, she sent the manager who proposed moving us rather than the party they just Sat. If that is not not ridiculous and insulting, I don’t know what is. My wife asked me to just move and keep us all safe, finish our lunch peacefully and let it go, so I did. I’d personally would have left and reported it to the health department. We were moved AND our food to another table and finished, skipped desert and coffee. The food was good, service was professional but not friendly, I guess I should have not said anything and risk my health and my family’s health, NOT. Management never bothered to stop by to offer and apology or even a glass of water as a friendly gesture for their poor decisions. The food was good, the location is very good. Would not go back for a WHILE!!! If you’re worried about social distancing, not the spot for you.

The waiter I had was good. I had a good time with my date. I was not impressed with the food or the drinks that night. It was just OK. The $200 for food & drinks for 2 wasn’t worth it.

The view on the city is very nice! Unfortunately, it was very loud, the staff was always in a rush. There was no social distance between the tables, we felt a little bit uncomfortable. Most of the staff didn’t wear their mask properly, they didn’t cover their nose.
The food was really good.

Appetizer portions were so small and overpriced. Apparently there was a time limit with seating and our waitress rushed us the entire night, was slow on drink service and lost a credit card in between transit from the table and register. The manager could have been more professional as well, he did not introduce himself when coming to the table and staff was not observed to make an effortful attempt in recovering it. Drinks were eh, meat entree portions could have been bigger, overall I think it was the hospitality that played the biggest factor

Food was excellent. Waiter was very helpful with suggestions. Waiter recommended the pineapple martini, very delicious. My husband had the wedge salad, filet mignon special and we shared the Strawberry Napoleon. I had the lobster tacos, which were delicious but very tiny. I also had the seafood capellini for my main which was also very good. The view was lovely.

The scenery is nice. The Food was good. I don’t know what happened to the food that was packed away. It ended up in shambles or missing. The service was okay which I would expect during a pandemic.
