    Definitely not what we expected. Food was good - that's all. Huge disappointment. Waiter was not pleasant and ignored us for long stretches. To think we chose it for our 10th anniversary dinner :(

    Make a reservation. Even if it's only 30 mins before you arrive. 😁

    Try the bouillabaisse or tuna salad (spicy). Great champagne and wines (try the pinot noir or the Viognier by the glass), great service. Don't take 8 onion rings unless you've not eaten in a week!

    If you want to enjoy a nice dinner, great food, drinks and service - go here. You can sit inside or outside and have a view of the Riverwalk and the Tower Life Building, which is great at night.

    If you are a foodie, look no further. The dining experience here is epic. If you're just looking for a romantic dinner look elsewhere. This place is for grown ups who know good food.

    Don't waste your money here. The food was good but w-a-y overpriced and the "spectacular views of the Riverwalk" were of a dark, desserted part overlooking some apartments. There are better places to
