We went to dinner with a couple friends on a Saturday in July and we had a wonderful meal! We had the ceviche, salads, filet and vino! A night to remember with impeccable service and exquisite food. We will be back!

My husband thought that he was doing something romantic by getting us reservations on our anniversary. There are many things which should make this a romantic restaurant, but in the end the sheer volume level kills it. Our waitress did nothing to help this. I'm...More
