My boyfriend made reservations here for Valentines Day. If it's a special holiday be sure to make reservations as he called a week in advance and there were only two times available - 5:30PM and 9:00PM so we took the 5:30. You can choose between valet parking or the free parking lot directly beside the hotel. We were seated immediately as there were not many people there by the time we arrived, but within 30 minutes every seat was filled. The staff pulls out your chair for you and even though there was not an empty seat in the place, the service was incredible. It was almost like there was a waiter for each table. The food is very authentic and even the wait staff had italian accents. For appetizers - the lobster bisque is decent and the portebellas exceeded my expectations as they were delicious. My entre was decent (the grouper), but it was not the best I've ever had. My boyfriends entre (the new york strip) was incredible and highly recommended. As for the atmosphere - extremely romantic - after our meal we took a walk through the outdoor paths that are lined with lights and waterfalls (this is your view during the meal). Upon leaving, they adorned each girl with a single rose as it was Valentines Day. Don't expect to leave without paying over $100 for two people, but for the special occation, it was perfect.
