                                  Nice place. Excellent food reminds me my Puerto Rico. But the service a little bit lost, they were running thru tables looking for the person who ordered the food. I waited like 40 minutes for a beer and I have to ask twice for it. But overall really nice place.

                                  The food was amazing but I was one of the rare cases of poor service. I was seated and it took over 2 hours to get food. My server explained that our food was given to another table after we asked what the issue was. It was a holiday but gross oversights like that shouldn't happen. Food was amazing but the service dropped the ball.

                                  We went on Valentines Day. They had a prefixe menu. Everything was delicious. Hats off the the kitchen. The place was packed with people. Long line to get in. This is worth a try especially if u like seafood.

                                  Food was good however was experience was on valentine's day; which the service was bad. We were not serviced timely when we arrived at our table. Then once our waitress came to serve us, took over 30 minutes to get our appetizer and another 30 min for our salad entrée once we ordered. Once we were served our salad our meal entrée came 5 minutes after. then we were rushed to eat our salad and the meal came and was semi cold. Was a bit disappointed. If food was hot, it would have been more tasteful. We will go again but not on a special holiday again. They needed more service staff to accommodate the amount of people that were being served and the people waiting was staring at all the people eating at the tables. Made it very uncomfortable eating your food.
