The bartender was nice and the tip was included in the charge...not cheap. We did get pistachios with our drinks. We told the bartender...

Most choices were seafood. We ordered the meat and cheese plate,$26, and while the cheese and dipping a were good, they came with only a two...

Had issues with type of room reserved so was stuck with two standards instead of a king. AC dripped onto the floor making a noise where it had to be turned off at night making the room warm. Food is decent but expensive and a 18% service charge is added to every order. Parking is 10/day.
