My hubby brought me here as a surprise this last week for my birthday.
The live band was loud, fantastic jazz music. Things were looking GREAT! We ordered a bottle of Moscato D'Asti from their nicely prepped wine list. The food (eventually) showed up. When it did, it was very nicely prepared. We were unfortunately the victims of server neglect. While I hope my darling husband didn't tip her overly well I will say that the food was good.
But honestly? I'd go to AJ's, buy the seafood fresh and make it with my cuter half.
The ups were definitely the people watching experience and the overall atmosphere. I don't know that I'd spend that much to go back. It's a sad fact, one brush with a bad server (in a restaurant where you EXPECT great service) will turn you off an entire restaurant. In fact we made a bet with each other as to how long it would take the apparent floor manager to come over and ask us how our dinner was. Want to know the outcome? We watched him visit every other table EXCEPT ours. Not once in a 2.25 hour meal did he bother to even look at us. As a youngish successful (and decently dressed) couple, I felt a little discriminated against! Try it yourself, maybe we were just there on the wrong night!!!
Pros: Great location, wine list, and live music!
Cons: Servers, Hostesses, Manager, PARKING, too loud to be romantic
