    Overall pretty good spot. The only thing I would change is the music to enhance the ambience. The food was delicious and drinks were tasty! Gin and tonic is a MUST!

    Food was amazing , great service from our server but it blows my mind that after eating a manager came to our table and rushed us to get out because they have more reservations and what not . After spending so much money , absolutely unacceptable. Enjoyed dinner but won’t come back.

    Our reservation was at 8:30pm and it was crazy busy. The service was really fast and food came out faster than drinks mostly. It was really loud with club music so it was hard to have a conversation. Overall the food was excellent, experience was enjoyable, and I’m glad we finally tried it!

    Place is amazing, great atmosphere and energy. Nice people around and service was impeccable. Food was delicious too. I just don’t give a 5 because on the grilled octopus, one of the tentacles was amazingly well cooked but the other one was really rubbery and hard. Not sure what happened but it was the only missing part for a perfect dinner.

    The food was absolutely delicious! The portions were small, but the way it was plated had people taking pictures of their food. The service was great! The drinks were ok tasting, but they were very strong. It was too loud to have a decent conversation across the 2 person table. It was overall a nice experience.

    Food is over priced but you go there for the experience. My bill with tip was $160. My biggest complaint is I have been there three times already and I’ve yet to be seated in the dining room. I don’t like sitting in the bar. The tables are too low and so are the chairs. Weather permitting, outside is ok. I specifically requested the dining room last night and was told we would be seated there and we weren’t. When the manager came to see how we were doing, I told her about the sitting situation. She gave me her card and told me to contact her next time to endure an inside dining room seat. The food presentation is always over the top and the food is very good. Drinks are pricey. $16 for a glass of Prosecco is high. I’ll go back because I love the food. It’s just not a place I’ll frequent a lot. And I eat out at least 4-5 nights a week.

    Best food I have had in a long time. My wife and I contemplated ordering the next day to go just because we we craving the taste again so quickly. Great ambiance, comfortable seating, a tad chilly, but understandable. Great service above and beyond. Surprised that we were able to get a reservation so late notice so it was definitely a special treat. Will be back everytime I'm in the city.

    The overall vibe of the restaurant was great. Music wasn’t too loud it was just right. Drinks, apps and main course were awesome!! Alway go for the flambé branzino from the fish menu. Our server deserved major kudos.. made the experience that much better with the recommendations and not being overbearing. Would absolutely visit again with a request for Jason!!!

    Overall we had a good time and the service was FANTASTIC! If you can, ask for Victoria because she was awesome! Great recommendations! It was pretty loud so I definitely wouldnt recommend for anyone looking for a "quiet, intimate" type of date spot. Food was pretty good. We had the haloumi cheese, fried potato sticks ( forgot the actual name of them), the meatballs and thir rainbow olive oil cake. It is pretty pricey so be prepared to drop atleast $100 minimum if your planning on having more than an appetizer and a drink. That being said,, the meatballs are AMAZING, by far my favorite! Both thier old fashioned and the AVA G&T were fantastic as well! Definitely will be back, even if its just for cocktails and appetizers :)

    Wanted to try the newbie in winter park. They did an amazing job on the restaurant. We were seated promptly and our waitress greeted us right away. It was hard to hear her describe the menu since it was so loud. Our appetizers came right out along with our drinks. These were the smallest drinks I have ever had with the largest price! We wanted still water and when we got the bill they up charge us $15.00 for water lesson learned ask for regular water. We wanted fish and when we ordered the waitress came back 5 minutes later saying they were out of dish unless you wanted the &70.00 fishes crazy for so early in the evening. They also don’t tell you they put the tip on so check your bill before adding more of a tip. Not sure if I would go back there are many other places to eat in this city without spending your paycheck on!

    Sat promptly outside on a warm Saturday night with good friends. Had the Onassis Old Fashioned with to start and it was a good pour for $ 16.95. The drink was garnished with a fig which did not add much to the flavor but was unique nonetheless. Had the Keftedes Meatballs $ 20 and Hummus $ 14 for starters, the meatballs were served in a bowl with a flame to keep them hot. Had the Branzino for dinner - one of the best entrées I have ever experienced! Check out the digital images.

    Amazing food. Our server was very nice but the server assistants forgot our water, then our drinks, and never brought the bread for our appetizer, despite multiple requests. For the money you’re spending, service is definitely lacking but food makes up for it.

    Overrated. Virtually every employee encountered had a chip on their shoulder and an arrogance that isn’t warranted. I asked if we could sit inside, and the host literally laughed at me while telling me no. Magically, after purchasing your priciest champagne while a thunder storm started up, a server had found a table inside. I will say that the Greek spreads and meatballs were very good. Overpriced, but very good. I was disappointment with the seafood tower - at least half of the oysters were not properly shucked, leaving us to dig out bits of oyster with our forks. For $125, I shouldn’t be shucking oysters for myself. The truffle pizza was also good. Maybe relax a little on the attitude and we’ll come back and try this again, though I won’t order the underwhelming seafood tower next time.

    I had an “okay time”. This is more for a group gathering. Food is okay but presentation and service is great. We did a date night but I couldn’t hear my husband or the waiter much for that matter. I am interested in checking out the brunch experience but I can’t say I would return for an intimate dinner.

    Terrible awful service, food is absolutely not remarkable. The decor and the ambience is great but that’s about it! We have been to amazing restaurants before, way more expensive but this one is definitely not worth the price. If you don’t want to get frustrated and feel like you were robbed… don’t go there.
