    They removed the French dip sandwich from the menu. It was so good so that was disappointing.

    Very expensive no sides included with an entry and the sides were skimpy for the price.

    Wait staff was friendly. Drinks were very slow to arrive despite the restaurant being nearly empty. Food was slow to arrive and mediocre. The pork secreto was extremely tough and not flavorful with nothing on the plate but the meat. It was honestly barely edible. My wife’s short rib was okay. The salmon was okay as well. I would not come back. Place feels like it needs a major infusion of energy and better food.

    The service was excellent. The non alcoholic beverage was at point. Food was average. The outdoor seating was very nice and relaxing. It was our first time at this restaurant so overall it was great.

    Our server Travis was excellent. My husband loved his pork entree and said it was perfect. I didn't like the spinach salad, unfortunately...it has tons of cheese on it. The atmosphere is relaxed, with most of the other groups looking like they came right after a golf game.

    Our waiter was working hard but spread entirely too thin. He disappeared for long periods of time and then would come out carrying trays of food. I wondered if he was helping in the kitchen. Overall a disappointing experience.
