Gio was pleasant enough, but not as good as I expected. The peppery panko crust on my appetizer scallops was not a plus. The bits of charred cauliflower in the veg accompanying my main course were unpleasant. The music on the PA was sometimes obnoxious....More

We just left from dinner there based on excellent Trip Advisor reviews. The service was terrible. The lobster we ordered had sand in it. The best the restaurant would do is say they are sorry. Nothing was ever done to correct the mistake in the...More

The seafood tower is brand new, and looks like it may become a big star on our menu, WTexTraveler. The presentation is definitely something to behold, but I am glad to know how much you liked every bite, and that your wife also enjoyed her...More
