Fantastic place for a Valentines dinner! Everything looked amazing and the food was very delicious. Servers were very attentive and very kind. The food took about as expected to come out. It’s a little pricey when comparing to other Italian spots, however, for a restaurant of this class it’s definitely cheaper than I expected.

Came here for Valentine's Day with my wife. We came 30 mins early and didn't expect to get a table right away. Not only did we get seated immediately, our server Dawn came and greeted us as we sat down. Dawn was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the wine and food menus. She was a pleasure to talk to and very professional!

The food and service at the restaurant were amazing I would definitely recommend, the only reason I have 4 stars instead of 5 was there was a mix up with a reservations, 5:45 vs 7:45 and when asked the latest they could accommodate us we were told 6:15, yet when we left at 8:30-9ish there were still tables that sat empty the whole time we were there!

The food was quite disappointing. I ordered the chicken and it was pink. I maybe had two bites but no one really asked how we were finding the food so we didn’t say anything. Very expensive for what was served. We had a party of 8 and no one really enjoyed their food. Drinks were good.

Anniversary dinner. We had made reservations. From greeting to server-all knew it was a special day for us and treated us that way. A bit noisy because it was Thurs jazz night but we were offered a table away from the stage which was perfect. Our server Adam was on point, genuine and when asked he helped us to choose the perfect meal! Adam was intuitive, attentive without being invasive-spectacular!
The food was absolutely delicious!

Excellent food quality, ambiance and informed serving staff. We ordered 12 oysters, grilled octopus, stuffed zucchini flowers, beef carpaccio, wagyu steak and filet mignon, desserts were chocolate cake with passion fruit gelato, tiramisu. Espresso martinis and grappa. Fine wine selection to choose from. Will definitely return

Our food came out cold, our grilled octopus came out overcooked. When the dish was re-created it was still over cooked. Not worth the money, many other restaurants with better food and service for same price.

The ambience is very nice but the food is VERY average. The Pinot Grigio was watered down tasting and the waitress was beyond annoyed to be working there. Every question you asked would irritate her (and all we were asking was for dairy free off the brunch menu). They (her and another waitress) kept trying to rush us out as if it was super busy (it was empty) and it wasn’t until I told them both on separate occasions that I’d like to finish my meal before they took my plate away and I’d like to perhaps drink the glass of overpriced watered down wine before they gave us the bill. Go for pics if you’d like because the actual restaurant is gorgeous and immensely bigger than what I had anticipated.

The server brought dishes out at different times. Fifteen minutes later we got all of our dishes but by that time Our first pasta dishes got cold so we sent it back to be warmed up. We had asked for split bills evenly and somehow we all got different bills and had overpayed for our meals that were average. The truffle pasta didn’t taste at all like truffle, more like a butter and cheese linguini. Ambiance is great but the service totally ruined the experience for me and my friends.

Beef carpaccio was amazing. We ordered the Seabass and Veal and weren’t very memorable. Cocktails were great. Service was also great. Definitely not worth the $240 bill.

Food is fine. The problem is the waiter with brown beard. He hardly spoke to us. However, he was talking a lot with the couple beside us. I dont know why he treated us differently. Would not come back.
