We celebrated a birthday with some friends and had a great time. Hands down if you’re a party of 4 you need to order the smorgasbord.

One of our favorites and did not disappoint with excellent service and the food was timed well with completion of appetizers. Steaks were done to perfection, however I would prefer smaller size cuts as 12 oz NY Strip was enough for two meals and did take half home. The staff seems well trained and are always pleasant and want to make your meal enjoyable with their attitude and service.

We so enjoyed the food as well as the wonderful service and general hospitality at Asti. We are always greeted with warmth and given attention from the staff. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable and friendly and all the staff seems to work together so well. My husband and I both got pasta dishes--the Lamb Sugo Mafaldine and the Rigatoni Amatriciana, and both were heavenly. The dishes feel like authentic Italian cuisine. Our wine was excellent as well and we enjoyed the stuffed mushroom appetizer. Asti is one of our favorite places to go and we will return soon.

One of the best visits ever, and we have visited Fleming's many, many times over the years. Our server, Jesse S, was not a 5 star but a 10 star, best ever by far. He is truly a gem for your company and represents the brand exceptionally well! Food was great as always. I plan to ask for Jesse every time I come, he is a keeper, IMO! Thank you!

Dinner was delicious, the escargot superb! While I think the T-bone was overprices, it was good but disappointingly not fork tender. It had to be saw cut but tasty. I've been going to ACL since they changed from the Courtyard and have never had a bad meal.

The lobster taco appetizer was outstanding and, at two for $20, not overly expensive. Caesar salad was excellent and all entrees perfectly prepared. But, as good as the food was, the service was better. More expensive than many restaurants, but worth it.

Delightful hidden gem! Tucked away in a strip center, behind a gas station & a fast food restaurant is this delightful hidden gem! Walking through the doors feels like a transformation to a cozy Mediterranean style cafe. The colorful artwork on the walls & white tablecloths help set the mood. The menu is not extensive but, there’s a good variety of Mediterranean influenced dishes to appeal to many different tastes. The snapper with couscous & sautéed veggies is delicious! Reservation recommended as it is a cozy restaurant. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

After recent disappointments in food, quality and service at other venues, this was a pleasant change. Brian, our server was exceptional. The pricing very reasonable, the food excellent and the wine Superb! The ambience was a bit lacking but we were there in the afternoon so the evening might lend for a nicer atmosphere. All in all, a wonderful meal out! We had the calamari, wine lovers pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, and we shared the Chardonnay and Cabernet wine flights. Everything was delicious
