The hostess ignored one member of our party when her husband dropped her off. she did finally accommodate us by moving us to another table away from the music. Our waitress, Sam, was great gave us suggestions about the specials and was there when we needed her. The steaks were very good. The only issue I have is the music. The guitarist is very good but way too loud for a place of that size. This was our second visit, and we experienced the noise level last time as well. We will return there but maybe on a weekday when there isn't music.

We enjoyed the entire meal, especially the entrees. It has been 12 yrs since we ate here and it was as wonderful as it was then. Our server, Mr Grey, was very knowledgeable as well as professional. We had the escargot and mussels for appetizers - very good!! Our entrees were the scallops and the short rib. The short rib was amazing!!! Definitely recommend that if you are looking for something from Turf and the scallops are our recommendation for Surf. We cant wait to go back..hipefully soiner than 12 yrs!! 🤣

Good food but expensive considering that you have to cook it at the table and it consumes a lot of time. Makes trying to have a good conversation difficult.
