Met friends here for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised at the food and service. Our waitress was so good and we never had to ask her for refills. The food was great and for the price value was outstanding. We sat upstairs and had a great view. We will definitely be back.

My family loves this restaurant. We enjoy celebrating special occasions here. I like their Perfect Margarita and we tried the white sangria, very good.

For dinner, we enjoyed the Mahi, Mahi which was on special; burgers; filet (cooked perfectly); crab cakes and jambalaya. All was very good as usual. Normally service is exceptionally, but we were in a corner and it was hard to get the one server's attention sometimes.

I tilted this toward 4 due to the service. Our group had an excellent filet mignon, good spicy jambalaya, okay chicken, and an overly-cooked and therefore dry swordfish that no amount of sauce could fix. The wine by the glass was an acceptable range of choices, and the key lime and apple pecan pie both excellent. Our service was very deferential and knowledgeable. We had a good time, unrushed for an evening meal even though crowds were pushing at the entrance. Maybe a little overpriced, so choose wisely!

Been a number of times over the years and my wife and I finally decided ‘why?’. The food was OK and for the money, was not a good value. The service was not good and to top it off. The best items in their dessert menu, the creme boulle and chocolate mousse, are no longer on the menu. There are better options if I want to spend $125 on dinner with my wife.
