    We had a reaction to a miss in a shellfish allergy. We had to leave. We only had waters and app. Still charged for cocktails - which weren’t made and entrees.

    Such an amazing buffet brunch. The variety, quality and presentation was excellent. Service was great. My family and I truly enjoyed Easter brunch. Thanks to everyone who planned and delivered such a great experience.

    Apps were pretty good, however, main course was poor! “Filet” was basically pot roast and the mashed potatoes were from a box…no taste. I’d go for tapas and cocktails but never for dinner…save yourself the money and disappointment!

    Bravo! My husband and I came here for a date night, and everything was spectacular! Excellent service and delicious food! We had Brussels sprouts as an appetizer, and salmon as main course. All excellent! Gary is a great server. We will definitely be back! 💯

    We had a party of four for Valentine’s Day. The server was sweet and kind and trying hard, but it was clear management failed to adequately train her before throwing her in the lake to sink or swim. The menu was a single price, with two choices for starter, salad, entree and desert. Three of us were pleased with our steaks. However, the fourth person (my wife!) ordered the “Cauliflower steak”, which was no more than about $1 worth of a large piece of cauliflower, grilled crispy, with some cherry tomatoes. Her meal was over $60!!! It was embarrassing as a Valentine’s meal and date at one of the nicest restaurants in town. No chef in their right mind should send something out like that and claim it is anything more than what a first grader could do. Very disappointing considering our previous good experiences!

    Terrible experience. Took over 20 minutes to get drinks and had to repeatedly ask for service. Terrible food. Will not be dining again.

    I'm glad Side by Side reopened. We enjoyed our evening and meal. Steak and Salmon were our entrees. Both were delicious following our starter of brussel sprouts...the best I've had anywhere!
