We enjoyed the efficiency of our server. We had drinks within our first 5 minutes and we ordered from their specials menu. The sword fish was excellent and the ahi tuna with pinapple was tasty.

We were glad that we had a reservation on Saturday evening, since the place was pretty crowded. The service was nice, but the food was just about OK, and the cocktails were also pretty disappointing.
