    My boyfriend and I had a great time celebrating our 1 year anniversary together. We drove out miles away to enjoy a lovely dinner here while taking a journey down the bourbon trail to celebrate. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection! The staff was also very friendly and tended to us with a very high level of prestige! We were seated in a middle table so it was a bit harder to have some privacy as the noise level was pretty loud between the kitchen and all the people around. But overall great experience! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

    We were seated immediately. Our server, Jamie, was wonderful. Attentive, but not intrusive. He anticipated our needs. Great sense of humor and manner. Food was delicious. Jar of crab was excellent. Mixed grill and brisket also wonderful. Is it pricey? Yes, but we’ll worth the splurge.

    This was a first time visit for me and my husband. He ordered the 8 oz filet. Can’t go wrong with that. Also ordered truffle fries with that. Fries were good. I ordered the Seared Ahi Tuna. Yummy. Cooked perfectly. Drinks were more expensive than I realized but at least it tasted good. It wasn’t the worst experience we’ve ever had but it wasn’t the most outstanding either. Overall it was a nice experience.

    I wish I could give them more stars. The best seafood I’ve had in a very long time and I travel coastal multiple times a year. Our server was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and had the best humor. Great location on 4th street. Beautiful restaurant. The seafood combo was perfectly portioned and cooked. GET THE SEARED SCALLOPS!! So good. We will definitely be back. They even personalized our menu for our anniversary. 10/10

    We made reservations for NYE for 9:00 we arrived 10 minutes early to check in and was told we would be seated in a few minutes. We waited over 45 minutes and asked several times when we would get our table. We we’re finally seated and waited 5-7 minutes before we were even acknowledged by out waiter. We had the NYE menu. Our waiter failed to bring the champagne and never given that. Our ice tea was served with little ice and we had to wait to get a glass of ice. We had. 20% tip was already included. Overall it was a poor experience for such a high price per person. There was a lot of people upset from the lengthy wait and they also had reservations.

    Our reservation on NYE was for 8:45, we arrived at 8:35 but were not seated until 9:30. I should have been allowed to cancel the reservation without penalty but I was told we had to wait or be charged. We had plans after dinner and we were so late to them. It took the valet 30 minutes to bring my car around. The same thing happened last NYE, it took over an hour to be seated. I have never made a reservation anywhere else and had this happen. It was the worst feeling and the dining experience was a dark cloud over the night.

    Never had a bad meal. Sway is the best he always makes sure we r taken care of. Had group of 14 for NYE very good experience. Little confusion at end with correct number of bottles of wine. But it got sorted out and server realized she was wrong and over all great experience. I believe this was out 3rd or 4th year with a group for NYE.

    (NYE limited menu 3 course meal). Overall we loved all of the food and the service was outstanding! The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that we had reservations for 7:45 and did not get seated until 8:30. Tried to get a drink at the bar and they wouldn’t serve us a drink unless we were seated at the bar :/. Once we were seated the food came out quickly. The NY strip and Chilean sea bass were outstanding! The starters were larger than expected and all delicious! Cocktail shrimp included 3 very large shrimp! Bruschetta included about 6 slices of bread with a whole wheel of goat cheese. We split the butter cake, for dessert, 4 ways and it was a perfect amount for us to each get a few bites in. Would love to go back sometime soon!

    For an “upscale” restaurant, the food was not impressive. Everything lacked taste such as garlic, salt and pepper etc. Chillean sea bass (an expensive fish) is served on a liquid corn. A tiny bit of a very cheap substance. The fish itself was cooked well. The choppino had limited fish and the sauce lacked flavor. We weren’t offered anything in addition to what we ordered such as sides or salads. The server took our orders and went on his way. For the price of items, we know we could get much better at another location. We will not be returning, as we really appreciate high end food and this isn’t it.
