    I never leave reviews, but I believe others should be warned. The restaurant experience was horrible. 0/10, I would never recommend. We thought this restaurant would be perfect to celebrate my sister getting married, but it turned into the worst nightmare. To start, our reservations were June 8th, at 9:45 PM- it wasn’t until 10:45 that we were seated after being told it would only take them 10 minutes to seat our party. Upon being seated, we had to ask for a waiter to assist us, no less than 10 times. After 30 minutes (1.30 hours after reservation time) , we were finally helped, only to be told the kitchen would be closed in 15 minutes (Midnight). It was late and we were so hungry that we just told them to put in the order and would like to speak with a manager. Upon speaking with a manager and explaining the situation- he was extremely rude, telling us that it was no way we waited 2 hours before eating and that he wouldn’t remediate the situation. We left feeling defeated and honestly targeted because of our race. We were even told by our waiter that he never treats his other customers the way we were treated. When our waiter attempted to cheer us up following the manager’s actions by requesting to bring us a glass of champagne, the manager told him he was not allowed to and he didn’t care how we felt. This experience was disheartening. Someone should really look into this situation. The manager name is Abrizio.

    Really good service. Food was dependent on what you got. Vegetables were crunchy and sea bass under seasoned but steak and potatoes was great. Drinks were really good but way over priced.

    Hice mi entrega de anillo de compromiso con ellos. El trato fue excelente y trabajaron conmigo la idea y fue una noche inolvidable para mi prometida gracias al manejador Joseph y todo su equipo de trabajo. Al mesero James todo profesional. Y todo el personal. Fue una noche magnífica de muchas emociones y será inolvidable. El show de la chicas muy excelente y el desempeño de los artistas a alto nivel. La comida exquisita. Me quedo sin palabras. Del 1 al 10, obtuvieron un 15
