My wife is writing this review. When we bought this Groupon we thought from the price charged that it would be a gourmet restaurant. It certainly was not. We would never return to this restaurant and do not recommend it unless you like spicy hot food and don't like to taste the natural flavors of food which have not been masked by peppers and hot sauces. I informed the waitress that i could not eat spicy/hot food as it upset my stomach and made me throw up, (Fortunately I had taken 2 Zactac 150 before going out to eat.) When we finally found 6 dishes to order, all dishes contained tiny bits of red pepper. You could not taste the salads as the salad dressing was so spicy & hot. (The small part of the peach salad which didn't have their dressing on it was good.) The quinoa seafood salad was uneatable. It only contained calamari and 1/2 of a shrimp. The BBQ beef, steak as well as the polenta had hot pepper flakes on it which took away the pleasure of being able to taste the food.. When they realized we had not ordered $160 worth of food they insisted we have dessert. We rarely eat dessert but as the waitress and manager insisted we ordered bread pudding and chocolate icecream. The hot bread pudding had a scoop of the icecream on it. We thought they would be served separately. At least these two dishes had no red pepper flakes and was delicious at $27 + 20%tip. 20% bill added to ALL bills so you cannot tip according to the service provided. There is a saying, please a client/customer and you get 2 new clients; displease a customer and you lose 25 customers.

New menu. Very good. Their portions have gotten better. I'd been there a couple times before. But this last time was nice. The food is a lot better and the drinks are always good..!!!

We had a great experience - the service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Favorites included the shrimp ceviche, the peach salad, deviled eggs and key lime pie. We're looking forward to our next visit!

The food was good. Service was average. The groupon deal was better last year. The Tip and Tax was included in the groupon this year it was outside. The server was pleasant but we felt a little rushed by the person busing the table.

My party was in agreement that the menu reads less exciting than the food actually is. Everything we had was well done. My favorite was the Ahi Ceviche, (which is really a phenomenal poke).
