The bar area and atmosphere was electric. The drinks and food were great!

Disappointing that we had to wait 20 minutes past our reservation time because they took walk-ins.

On a positive note, Patrick, the host, graciously offerred a complimentary appetizer because the restaurant had been closed on our previous (Tuesday night) visit.. The Chilean sea bass was absolutely delicious. The Lobster fra Diavlo was very good. And my wife enjoyed the chocolate cake with ice cream. Based upon the sevrice, we cannot recommend this restaurant. The good food is just not enough to make the dining experience a total pleasure. I hope this gives a decent explanation that is not possible when one has to merely click on "yes/no" choices, as below. We would return if we knew that shortfalls had been amended, which is why I selected 'yes' below. Thank you for the opportunity to view my opinion. And thank you for allowing a narrative along with standard choices that don't expain much of anything. Please feel free to contact me if you wish. Ray Mortlock

Altho' Brian, our waiter was nice, he was stressed to serve all diners; the restaurant was understaffed with only one waiter.. It took 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us once we were seated. Wait for cocktail (at least 2 female bartenders seemed to be on duty) and appetizer was much too long. An 11 minute wait for water refill is not acceptable to me. The repetitive soundtrack of music pounding above our heads was not pleasant. On a positive note, Patrick, the host, graciously offerred a complimentary appetizer because the restaurant had been closed on our previous (Tuesday night) visit. The Chilean sea bass was absolutely delicious. The Lobster fra Diavlo was very good. And my wife enjoyed the chocolate cake with ice cream. Even though the food was very good, it is not enough to make up for the lack of good service. The dining experience encompasses many aspects---all need to meet a certain level of expectation to be deemed worthy of a return and/or recommendation.

The food was very good and the restaurant was quiet.
