I'm shocked at the poor reviews. I went one evening for dinner and had great service and the meal from start to finish was great. Started with a nice glass of wine and their bread basket. I decided to go with the shrimp and scallop linguine (I forget what sauce was on it- some sort of mild white sauce, maybe... More

After reading a number of poor reviews, my husband & I decided to try this restaurant anyway. We were staying at the Intercontinental, it was raining out & this restaurant was an elevator ride away, easy-peasy!!! My advice is heed the red flags. Shame on us. On arrival @ 7pm, we noticed the restaurant was empty other than a few... More

My husband and I decided to come here on our last night in the hotel. Our reservation was for 6:30, which we really didn't need, because the place was empty. I'm not going to complain about the service because after the server hounded us for our order we made it very clear we were in no hurry, which she then... More

There were very few people in the resturant and the service was very slow. The quality of the food is edible. Not a fan and would not eat here again

I want to wish Joshua and Cathy the best of luck. We went to their restaurant 5 times since we have been in PR. I had the Gnocci Raviatta Hot Italian sausage with broccoli sun-dried tomato and red pepper flakes with olive oil. Amazing. Tonight the Pesto sauce.... The pastas are amazing....

From start to finish, service and food, all horrible. Waiter gives a big build up and then disappears. You basically have to chase them for water and bread. Food was expensive and terrible. Chicken parm tasted like frozen chicken with sauce from a can. I have had much better for $12 at my local diner. Spouse had a pizza for... More

The food was obviously homemade and large portions. The lobster ravioli was superb but the cost was ridiculous! $113 with minimum 15% service charge for 2 starters, 2 pastas and 2 coffees! Although we enjoyed the food it was not worth the money

Service was deplorable and food was not good. Maybe just a bad night for us but... Not a professional wait staff and not trained, there was a large family party nearby with children and their service was also totally unacceptable. Needs lots of work.

We were not staying at the Intercontinental, but in walking thru from the beach, decided to stop and eat. The meal was fantastic, the restaurant had only one other couple, it was rather early in the evening, and there was some private functions going on that might have accounted for it. I had the Lasagna and the other half had... More
