    Service, ambiance, menu, and food all just fine, yet the food wasn't begging me to come back, especially for the price tag. Overrated, overpriced. Leave it for a special occasion. 8/10.

    Remember Chilean Sea Bass is not a bass fish. It's true name is Patagonian toothfish. Look it up you don't want to eat it! Cheers, TJN
