Thought we would try an old favorite. A little surprised at how dated it was. Love the private booths, but now they seem a bit small. They have added an all yo can eat sea food, dry and hard. buffet for $63....but a lot of it wasn't covered with a sneeze guard so stayed away from that. Three of us... More

Our waiter should not be in the hospitality business...his attitude was definitely an "I don't care"...2 of us ordered the Lake Superior Whitefish...if it was whitefish it definitely had been frozen and was very watery...we sent it back...then replace it with a shrimp cocktail...shrimp was also...

I can only say one thing.... When it comes to overbooking, this place has nothing on United Airlines. We had reservations for Mother's Day at 12:30p.m. We arrived at 12:20p.m. to find a line out the door stretching down the block. We asked others in line and they all told us they had reservations for any where from 12pm to... More

I would like to give this place a better review but I can't. I've been there three times and every time, something happened that required my asking to speak to a manager. Once it was because we ordered pre-dinner cocktails and after a long wait they showed up with our salads. The next two times, our waiter spoke such poor... More

We looked for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion for our small party of 4. We opted for the Sunday evening Lobster buffet, reserved Don't worry about a crowd there won't be one for the evening buffet on a Sunday. While we can appreciate a vintage old school ambiance, this place was just clearly past it's prime rather than old... More

Food was average, service average. Not impressed with an elegant dinner house. With the prices should have been better!

I like to eat well when on the road so stuck in Sherman Oaks without a car it took me a little time and an Uber ride to find the place. First impressions good as it offered Valet Parking, but no one was manning the booth, slight unease. Walked in, very empty and bad smell, well it's Wednesday and been... More

This is one of my boyfriend's favorite places to eat. He has been here before on Mother's Day with his mom. They loved the restaurant so much that they reserved a table for 3, taking me along on Christmas Day. The selection of food was plentiful. We ordered drinks at the table. BF's mom ordered a mimosa, BF and I... More

The champagne brunch here is amazing. I'm somewhat a regular as I eat there three or four times a year. As infrequently as that is the chef/manager and head waiter remember me and the things that I like. This is an all you can eat seafood buffet with unlimited champagne too. My friend likes to have mimosas. We do not... More
