Went for happy hour with a friend. Ask for a Canadian Club in a bucket glass with lots of ice and two twists. 20 something server with gold glitter on her eyelids tells me that they don't carry Canadian sodas. I explain that Canadian Club is a Canadian blended whiskey. Off she goes. She comes back and tells me they don't have Canadian Club. Bartender comes over and tells me that they only have Crown and something called Pendleton. After he described that, I ordered it. Ms. Glittery comes back with the Pendleton in one of those small snifters, no ice. I explain that a bucket glass is similar to, but larger than, the water glass and that that's what I want, with lots of ice. Ms. Snotty Pants says, "Oh! Then you want it on the rocks." DUH! Happily another server brought something like what I asked for to begin with and stayed with us the rest of the time. We got 3 plates of food. Two were awful: pork ribs in some kind of awful gravy that tasted as bad as it looked and cold, and friend cauliflower that was covered in some kind of breading (looked like they bought it that way) and was hard inside. Friend had two drinks. I had one. Bill $71 + change. Crappy service by someone who had potentially 1/2 a clue, crappy and overpriced food, and a big bill. Not my idea of "happy" hour.

I came here for lunch, but I did not find anything I feel like to have on their menu. I ordered a glass of champaign and told the waitress that I could not find anything I like to eat. She asked me what I feel like to have, so I told her that I like to have some salmon pasta....she went to talk to a chef, and I got it. It is fun to order something not on the menu....

I enjoyed the bar and service was fine, but the food was not what I hoped. Plates are big but the food is lacking. The salad was inedible.

I also had a bad experience with the hostess. I showed up with 3 others and we wanted a table for 10. We were wearing suits etc...but didn't have reservations. The first hostess we spoke to was very rude and made it clear they couldn't seat 10. Given, we showed up thinking this was a trendy place we could grab some top shelf drinks and appetizers and didn't realize it was more of a restaurant. But, the hostess could have definitely had more class and handled it better. Another staff member walked up (probably when she saw the look on our faces at how offended we were) and she said they have a table available for us. We ended up having drinks and had a pretty good time after that. Our waitress was great...but the hostess really ruined the experience for us. I would go back and give the place a second chance and update my review but they need to make sure they put the best foot forward when customers first walk in the door or else it just completely ruins the experience.

The menu is a rather small selection. However the food i received was delicious. Not somewhere i would go frequently simply due to lack of overall selection for food. However as a place for special occasions i would recommend the restaurant fairly highly. Very good atmosphere good lighting. Enjoyable place to be.

To say the least, this restaurant completely under delivered my expectations. None of the three courses were any good, but let me start with the appetizer: I had ordered local oysters, and when my plate came it was a bunch of oysters (obviously) that were laid onto a bed of sea salt or some other variation of it. The oysters looked normal at first but upon biting into one of them I realized they had large hard chunks of salt stuck in the oysters. You would be eating and suddenly your teeth would land on a extremely salty shard. At this point I had just excused this as being a minor mishap or maybe some people liked salt in their oysters, so I was looking forward to the main course. For my main course I ordered Maine Lobster Paella, and upon receiving the dish I was quite shocked at the complete lack of lobster. I had ordered Main LOBSTER Paella and yet I had not a single piece of lobster in my dish! However I must say to the credit of the restaurant that they did give me a full refund on that dish which is extremely professional. By now I was annoyed with the restaurant for delivering both a sub-par main dish as well as a unappetizing appetizer (although that is opinionated) I was curious to see the dessert. Quite honestly I have no way to judge the quality of the dessert due to the fact that I ordered something I didn't like at all. The New Year's Duet was decent, so I have no strong opinions about it. In all, I just have to say that the restaurant failed to serve me a decent appetizer and main dish, albeit the dessert was average. Although your experience may differ from mine I still have to warn you to watch out for low-quality restaurants that run under hotels. Gordon Ramsey would have something to say. Thanks, -Duke

WE stopped in on a sunday at 5:00pm..wanted to sit on the patio was told to pick a place to sit and when we did the ho-stess told us we couldnt sit in that spot that there was a 4top reserved so we chose to sit inside.our waitress was very good at her job and new the menu..however a dinner menu was not available at 5:pm??? so we were stuck with an overpriced happy hour menu that lacked any sustanance..so the only food was burgers..and who cant go wrong with a good ole american burger? we did the patties had no flavor(my guess is costco frozen pattie) were still frozen in the middle and rather gross.the prices were way out of order for this jernt...my drink from the bar was amazing and perfectly made..i will never eat in this swill house ever again..i will stop in the bar for a drink though..total bill for our early dinner..60.00 bucks for two discusting burgers two waters and a jameson mule...and when the waitress came and saw that we didnt eat but a bite of the burgers she never asked what the problem was..oh the brioch buns were damn good
