This was an excellent Steakhouse, food was great, best service and loved the price. We shared a 9oz Filet with a Lobster Tail add on. 8oz tail for $19 you can't beat that. We will be back

Seated in a traffic area narrow table unable to hold servings.
Steak for one member extremely grisly. Paid $140. For this meal. Total for all about $800
Not real impressed with service to value.
Won’t be a repeat. Eaten here several times in the past.

The overall experience was excellent. I do think, however that the noise level in the room made it difficult to visit. There was a table right next to us that was so very loud........but the food was good our waiter did a good job.

I enjoyed my drinks and appetizers, but the food was MUCH too salty. Particularly the house specialty (Orange roughy), and the creamed spinach.

I always enjoy this experience, but the excess salt detracted from the meal.

Overall great experience. The banana bread pudding was amazing. The bread was on another level overall it was great. The steak I felt was good I think it needed to be seasoned.

Excellent restaurant for a date night. A little on the pricier side. But you get what you pay for. The food, the service, the ambiance. Everything together makes for a 5 star experience. I would definitely recommend it.

While the food and drinks were fabulous- I found it odd that we had a reservation at 730 but had to be seated in the Cantina because the restaurant was full! The cantina was empty save 1 other table and noisy due to the music piped in . Little disappointed that the main dining room wasn’t available next time I will specifically ask while booking in the App

I made a reservation in the restaurant, sat down, and I felt like I was in a wax museum. As in, I was the youngest one there by 20y. And I’m 60!
I went over to the Cantina, and it was a lot more lively. My ahi tuna was excellent, and the filet was a perfect medium rare. I ate at the bar, and the bartender was excellent.
Just to keep it Interesting, the restaurant managed to explode the transformer outside. The entire place was sitting there playing on their phones in the dark. The bartender said, “Well, that’s what we all do anyway!” Hilarious. Great restaurant.

The orange roughy was “roughy”! The last few times I had this, it was always WOW. This time.... it let me down. Had such a bad fish flavor. Also, the calamari was soooooo salty. I was so looking forward to this evening, but was let down. I wouldn’t choose this for special occasion again!

The absolute best place to eat in the RGV, the steaks are phenomenal. The key lime pie for dessert took my breath away and the cheese tray as an appetizer, OMG! The service, unbeatable!
