The food and atmosphere are both good. Service was excellent, server was very friendly and made jokes. Had to wait close to an hour to get in but that was fine. The aquarium itself is horrible but this restaurant is good.

Decent although not spectacular food. Fun to watch the fish while eating. It was my husband's birthday, so he was embarrassed when I had them sing to him. They decorated the dessert, but it wasn't free.
