Great food as always! Keep coming back to this restaurant time and time again. Outside dining has heat lamps as well.
Our waitress was great & we love coming here. But the sushi was very very small pieces for the amount of money they charge. Too expensive for small portions like that.
Food was average, not a good value.
Nice venue, good service
Food was inconsistent, service slow. Was a nice outdoor space.
Great food and atmosphere! Had I known the weather was going to be so nice, I would have requested outdoor dining. Our server was awesome! She was personable and helped us make some food and drink decisions. Will definitely go back.
The food was excellent. The 3 guests had different selection and no one was disappointed. The noise was mainly from traffic on the road in front of outdoor area.
Always a great meal excellent service
The restaurant was warm which was nice given it was a damp
Gloomy day. Server was excellent. Food was served hot and beautifully plated. I had the wonton soup and paella. I loved the soup but the paella has too much salt in it for my taste and I missed the muscles and clams which I’m used to in a paella. However, it was delicious except for the salt issue.
Small portions for the prices, although the food was well prepared. Service was a bit on the slow side.
Menu was varied and ambitious. Food was well prepared and served in a timely manner. Would definitely recommend.
Great outside setup. Apps were great, dumplings and filet spring rolls. Most of the main courses were very good, duck special and the short rib tacos. The scallop dish contained only 3 medium size scallops that were OK and the rice was bland. The short rib tortellini was OK, but too dense and doughy.
Still, had an overall good experience with great service.
Extensive/eclectic menu, excellent food & cocktails, great service!
Birthday Viktoryia was our waitress she was very attentive and made us all feel welcome
Fantastic food, great service and a relaxed upscale environment. Especially nice outdoor seating area.
Fun girls night out
The food was very good and service was great.
Food was fabulous! Made reservations but was given a small table against a wall surrounded by larger tables. Apparently no other tables were available so we opted to sit at the bar. Bartender was friendly but overextended as he juggled the bar and surrounding tables. I’m hopeful that staffing will improve, so Service can. Thank you, John… we give you a 5 but we also realize you were spread thin.
Sorry that I thought I was going for brunch and they no longer offer a Sunday brunch menu so it’s lunch and dinner . The avocado toast the bread was soggy sushi is always fabulous coffee was lukewarm will probably pass for anything other than dinner moving forward they also did away with their happy hour all day Sunday which was great during football season I’ll have to pass on that and find somewhere else as well
Not worth what they charge for less than average food. Certainly won’t be returning any time soon.
Food was great waitress was horrible. We had to get up from out table and go to the bar and get our own drinks
Good lunch, service was great even though they were getting slammed all the staff was friendly and polite. Food was really good and the enclosed patio is nice.
Perfect as always
Birthday dinner, excellent service and great food!
Extremely nice local business. Quality food and service. Very accommodating to slight changes in the menu.
Delicious food. Good service. Street noise was a little loud on the patio but overall a good meal.
Best restaurant in Freehold Borough. I've been there many times and never had a bad meal.
Very nice meal. Everything arrived in good time and was very tasty. Our server Carrie was excellent.
An annual stop on our way back from Monmouth Park. Sandwiches are always good and the waitstaff is very professional. The only problem was we had to wait at the host/hostess station for quite a bit before we were taken care of. We had a reservation, but were just standing there...
We still like it.
Off to a rough start in the service category, but got better as the night moved along towards later in evening. However, the food was very good! And I like the crafted drinks.
We sat outside right off the street so the noise level is environmental. But on weekends, Freehold brings in music, and there was a Blues band playing nearby from a small enclosure and they were excellent.
Very eclectic menu, from sushi to tacos, to burgers to filet mignon. We had an enjoyable evening.
Wonderful evening with Carrie as our server. Staff was courteous and professional and the food was delish. Also, wonderful to see all the staff beautiful smiles.
Staff was very courteous, professional, helpful
Good service and good food. Comfortable atmosphere as well.
Food was good however service was very slow
Good food and atmosphere always!
We had a reservation for 6:15pm and our table was ready on time. It was extremely dark inside, making it hard to read our menus. There was also no music playing, so it felt a little quiet. Our server came and got our drinks ordered immediately while we waited for our friends to arrive. We ordered appetizers, sushi rolls were good, the others were just average. None of us were thrilled with our entrees. They all seemed to be quite bland and lacking in flavor. Overall, the price was not worth what we received. Based on the experience we had, it was just ok and I would not return.
Food was awesome and the service was great. I've been there before and I'll definitely be back.
Was the last reservation of the night and got rushed and didn’t really get to experience anything.
Had to order apps and entrees one shot because kitchen was closing in 5 min and couldn’t even get dessert … at this point why even have a 930 slot ?
We were there for a birthday. Service was great!, the reason I gave it a 4 star is that we liked some dishes and other dishes were bland. Atmosphere is very nice.
The food was amazing. The specials listed were so goOd it was hard to choose. We had the stuffed scallops, twice grilled steak and paella. All were amazing. The lettuce wraps were delicious. We are outside which was nice. Every now and then a loud truck would go by but nothing that made it in enjoyable. This is going to be our new favorite spot!
