Lunch and there was no food available except nachos. Chef not there? No idea. We walked as having lunch with no menu options (no fish) isn’t worth it.More

Had heard great reviews. But disappointed. Poor food. Order wasn’t as specifically asked for (sauces on the side), part of order was completely forgotten, and poor cut of steak (grissly).
