    I ordered the Jumbalia, which was spicy. I had to ask the waiter for water or refill on my soft drink multiple times.He was extremely slow in responding. With the exception of one time, we had to call him to the table. He was not responsive.

    We had a wonderful experience! The service was professional, friendly, and well timed. Our cocktails were very well prepared. Appetizers of shecrab soup, calamari, baked Brie, and oysters Rockefeller were well prepared and presented, perfect temperature and very tasty. The same was true of our entrees including crab cake, jambalaya, and vegetable curry. We will be returning.

    The food and service were excellent. The she crab soup had nice chunks of crab in it. The lobster empanadas were spicy and tasty and not at all greasy. The tuna carpaccio was excellent and the salmon Oscar was a huge portion and so delicious. I highly recommend all of the food. The only disappointment was the Orange Ya Glad cocktail which tasted like plain orange juice. The Blue Belle cocktail was a winner. We will be back for the next special occasion to try more seafood dishes.

    The servers are friendly and professional. The food is delicious. The seafood is fresh and fairly priced. The atmosphere is nice and laid back. I went two days in a row because the experience was so good. The blackened salmon Oscar was my favorite dish. The brussel sprouts appetizer is a must.

    This is two restaurants in one with a bar on the lower level and a formal dining room on the top… We opted for the formal dining room. We ordered a cocktail, and our waiter promptly pushed us for our entrée order… we placed an appetizer order, and before the drinks were even to the table, we were asked for entrée order a second time… The drinks took forever, but when they arrived, we were asked a third time for our entrée order, even though we had not received our appetizer - The restaurant had several empty tables, yet we were feeling very rushed.  I had the jambalaya, which was delicious with just the right amount of spice.  Five Stars overall, and we would definitely come back, but probably try the downstairs tavern area and stay away from the more formal and rushed dining room.

    We had a reservation at 5pm it wasn't busy but the sevice was very slow. It took a long time to.get appetizers, our entree and the bill. I ordered a med steak and it was really tough and not well seasoned. Abience was nice and people were friendly but not worth the money or the wait time.

    We were seated right away for our reservation and the restaurant was busy. Service was slow which they apologized for. They seemed understaffed. It was very loud downstairs. My husband’s oysters were fine but not as good as ones he had elsewhere the night before. It took a while to have our main course order taken. I had the vegetable curry which had no curry that I could tell. I saw and tasted only too much oil and black pepper. My husband’s shrimp and grits were only okay. We did not find much enjoyment here and will not be back.

    Made a 5:30 reservation somehow it got cancelled. Then made another one at 4:00 pm which was good and honored. We were the first people there and was seated at the very first table as you walk in we asked to be moved by the fireplace. The manger had to be asked when he came over we were seated. In observation the remaining people were seated in other areas even one in a booth. The restaurant was relatively empty meaning tables were available all over. Our waitress was AMAZING ! We were having a great time and conversation. Then one of the leads came over after we finished diner and said hey we need this table. Honestly, I have never been asked to get up from a table at a restaurant especially when in my count there were 5 /7 empty tables. Just a little puzzled !! Love the food and drinks but definitely want to share our experience. LRM

    Food was awesome. However it took 30 minutes to get our mixed drinks from the bar. And after telling the server we had an event to attend that was 1.5hrs from our arrival to the restaurant, it still took over an hour to get our food. The restaurant is nice but the tables are too close together. Dividers or better spacing would improve the experience.

    This restaurant has two levels upstairs or downstairs. Each environment is totally different. The food was good. I would have like my food hot. It was warm border line cold. Good location and the environment was excellent. I did enjoy the music. The waiter for my table was knowledgeable but, slow. Customer service in this type of restaurant is a big deal.

    I have reservations at 7 PM February 3 once I got there they told me my table would be ready in 15 minutes and set me at the bar which is understandable 710. The manager came over and said said you guys. We had a little delay, but your table will be ready soon so I was like OK 730 comes nobody says anything 745 comes nobody says anything so my husband had to get up go talk to the person at the door again and say hey, our reservations was at seven is now 745 and we still don’t have a seat so after 15 minutes of them having to go clean a table all for us, we finally get a table. All the tables around us was still dirty. at this point I’m irritated because we had plans after dinner and we didn’t get our table until 8 o’clock and our reservations was at seven. Once we sat down the manager never came and said sorry for the wait. She was nice but at this point, I want an apology for the wait time so once we got our table the waitress didn’t come over for another 15 minutes so now at this point our reservation was at seven is 815 we have to be somewhere by 9:30 still have not ordered and I’m starving so I asked the waitress can I have some bread she said after the second one you’re gonna have to pay for the bread, so am I I’m like I’ve been waiting here an hour and a half at this point, and you’re telling me, I have to pay for bread. So we finally got our food too me. The food was 2 out of 10. It wasn’t good at all. I was taking my husband for his birthday experience because he loves seafood but to me this wasn’t a great birthday experience the waitress was friendly everyone was friendly that was the only good part about it but if I have reservations at seven at least want to be in my seat by at least 720 because I made plans around the reservation because if I was 20 minutes late, you will have canceled my reservation or if you’re gonna be that late say ma’am I’m so sorry we offer you a drink. We could give you some extra bread and you don’t have to pay it.

    While the clams appetizer was wonderful and the seafood tower was delicious, the service was just so poor. It took about 10 minutes for a server to greet us, then it took 20 minutes to get our drinks 30 minutes to get water after asking 4 separate times. We had to take our drink back to the bar, and the bartender argued that the drink was made correctly and we didn’t know how it was supposed to taste. It’s a dirty martini, it’s not hard to make. They forgot our soup, then when we asked they brought it to us and it was cold. It was extremely dark downstairs, so I had to use my phone’s flashlight to see the menu (i’m 25 y.o. and have good vision).

    Love this spot for a nice dinner...feels very metropolitan - more like NYC than Norfolk. Amber provided great recommendations and outstanding service. Bacon-wrapped Scallops were amazing and the Blackened Salmon Oscar was also delicious. Great flavors on all. My only suggestion would be to warm the plates prior to plating the food to help keep the food warm from beginning to end. We'll be back!

    Was recommended for a nice dinner date, reserved for a birthday dinner for two. Arrived early so we sat at the bar to grab a drink and wait for our table. We ended up waiting for 20 minutes before a bartender said anything to us. Was seated upstairs with a more brighter, noisier ambience. And sat at a table in between main walk way and bar so a lot of traffic. Waiter didn’t come to the table much to check up on us. Food took awhile to come out. Lobster dinner was just a lobster tail with a side of vegetables, probably could’ve did another entree and added the lobster tail for a fuller dinner. Asparagus had no taste besides the broil flavor. Only thing that was very good was the butterscotch mousse for dessert. Very disappointing being that it was a highly rated recommendation so passed on other restaurants to try. My friend said she was seated downstairs so maybe a different experience from downstairs and upstairs.

    Made reservations for Husband's birthday. Unbeknownst to us, we were pleasantly surprised to see it was Restaurant Week. We were able to experience 3 courses for $45 . However, the food is wonderful, and we will return and will be more than happy to pay the full menu price.
