The food was good but the rats were OVERWHELMING! We ate outside with another couple and every other minute a rat ran thru the tables. I hate them and screamed every time I saw one so my stomach was in knots. The manager claimed that there were traps. The two men in our group searched hi and low and couldn't find them. The manager asked if we wanted to eat inside. The entire evening the door to the restaurant was open so the rats could walk right in. I would never eat there again!

We had dinner here one night while on vacation, and were very happy with everything. The service was very friendly and prompt (though they were very busy), and the setting is very relaxed and upscale without being pretentious. We ordered the Artichoke & Spinach Dip, Australian Lobster Tail, 7 oz Filet Mignon, and Miso Maple Glazed Salmon. Two people in our family have shellfish allergies, and there were several options for them to choose from (plus, the server was able to confirm that their choices were safe to order). We ordered the Lava Cake to share for dessert (tip: order this well ahead of time, as it takes 30 min to prepare). The food was all excellent, and we'd definitely return here in the future. Highly recommended!

We had dinner here and it exceeded expectations. We just walked in and were lucky to get a spot at the bar area. Food was fan-tas-tic and ambiance and staff were really nice. Can only recommend this place!

Service was very slow, apps came before drinks, food was not up to Chart House standards and poorly presented. Better choices.
