 Food

Over priced ! Food tasted dry, under seasoned and as if it had been frozen. If Cajun swordfish means - adds a lot of pepper and no other flavor, well then they nailed it! What's with the inside fish market? Do we choose our meal from here? Three of us ordered the broiled stuffed filet with three different results. I came home with leftovers so as not to embarrass my son who chose this place to introduce the love of his life to us, only to eat left overs from another restaurant!

 Atmosphere

Needs updating. Tables with paper tablecloth protectors made us feel feel like we were in the doctor's office. Wall art, time to go.

 Service

Felt rushed to finish. The waitress made us feel like we were keeping her. Ordered appetizers, but the waitress kept asking for our dinner choice, in less than 5 minutes. The bus boy frowned the entire time! Salads weren't near finished before she was coming to get them. They were discarded, not wrapped, not offered to be. She made sarcastic comments about the one stuffed mushroom that "she'd" leave on the table for us, and as if being instructed to give us 10 minutes to eat appetizers wasn't enough, she asked us if there was anything more that we wanted after dinner and when my husband asked for coffee, she made it clear that " another pot would have to be made for him" as if we weren't paying for it or leaving her a tip for her service didn't factor in. Then my men had the gall to order tarts. The food was not what any of us from Long Island expected! The service seemed dictated or the place just had the bad luck of hiring rude and untrained servers. We were glad we were not the last ones out so that the experience could not be blamed on us. Would not return or recommend until cooking and service were majorly improved. Will never forget how awkward this was for my son.

 Value

A real chef would not have served to us the mess that was! We'd eaten out the night before for 1/4 of the price and far, far better food. I ate some of those leftovers when I got home. Your food stinks and is over over over priced.

 Overall

Stay away. Food is questionable for freshness and way over priced. Not a pleasurable dining experience between food and service. Decor needs improvement but not as important as food and service! No, not worth the drive!
