    My friends and I went on a Sunday of a long weekend. So I made reservations. I still had to wait for a table but when a couch came available we moved there We had Prosecco and an abundance of good food. Glen was our server and he was great. Always smiling and pleasant. We chilled there for 3 hours and no one pressured us to leave. All in all it was a great time had by all even our precious dog who was welcomed.

    We went for the Mother’s Day brunch and ordered the lobster Benedict. One of my eggs was hard poached, so I removed it from the Benedict and asked to have it replaced with a soft poached egg. The overall meal had 3 tiny shreds of lobster unlike the advertisement, which had a full claw on each egg. Although the service was excellent, if you’re going to serve sub-par food then why would I return? This is the reason for the low rating.

    I went to this place for the first time yesterday and it was so worth it! They have a patio right by sugar beach overlooking the water and a lot of underground parking options near by. The food was delicious and the proportion sizes were a good size. Not too little and not too much. They have certain deals on different days so make sure to check out their website for those! The staff is super sweet as well and their menu were reasonably priced! I will definitely be re-visiting.

    The mains recommended by the server fell short of expectations. The Nasi Goreng lacked balance with an odd green sauce, and the Short Ribs were not tender and accompanied by overly sweet mash. When addressed, the server's response was dismissive and failed to acknowledge the issue. The lack of attentiveness to feedback detracted from the overall experience. The good thing I can say about our experience here was the delightful host!

    The food and service were great - HOWEVER - for a Sunday brunch the music playlist was crazy ..it was like being at a rave - we asked about changing and lowering the volume .. the volume was adjusted but they were unable to change the music. I understand other people have complained as well .. it’s. Such a great spot .. but I don’t want to be in club with heavy base electronica music in a Sunday morning! Get some chill out or coffeehouse music on and I would be back .. until then .. unfortunately my heart can’t handle it!

    The ambiance and view were amazing. Our server was very sweet but the service was slow. We orders two mains (each 35$) and we were disappointed by their size and taste. They looked amazing but tasted average. I was still hungry even after ordering an appetizer before the mains.
