    The appetizers were delicious. We just wish we were told the kitchen was closing before we ordered an entree! Good thing we had a few apps.

    Waitress was rude from the start. Met Val at the bar for a cocktail before being seated. Val made a great cocktail and we complemented her for such a great drink, she told us to ask the waitress to ask to have herself (Val) make our drinks. The waitress said she wasn’t able to walk to the lower level bar, and the night was downhill from there. What ever happened to customer service. Food was okay. Was hoping for a much better experience.

    4 adults and 1 two year old. We were sat quickly enough, but only given two adult menus. I had to go back to get a kids menu and more adult menus, but the hostess wasn’t there. After waiting a couple minutes I just grabbed the menus myself. Our server seemed very busy and was nice enough. Time of service was super long. From sitting down to our entrees arriving it took 70 minutes. Our appetizers probably took about 25 minutes. Food was not good. Our fish was dry and had no seasoning, my wife’s rice was actually crunchy, and the lobster roll was subpar. Unfortunately I can’t recommend this place to anyone based off of this experience.

    We were there on a busy Friday night but that doesn’t mean excuse the poor service. The waitress was immediately turned off that it was “just the two of you?” And barely checked in on us the rest of the evening: she also noticed a tray of empty shot glasses and beer right above my friends head and didn’t clear them until I asked her to. I have to say that the oysters we ordered were delicious and that’s where it ends. I ordered scallops and my friend the steak, hers was unseasoned and bland, my scallops were well cooked but a little stringy and the “risotto” was like glue that had been reheated too many times without any flavor. This was a birthday, a special occasion that we booked a reservation well in advance for and we were treated like an annoyance: except for when it came time to pay of course. Very disappointing as we have been here before and it was much better.
