Unfortunately this isn't a review of the food a Vangelis. This is a critique of the menu choices. The only non redmeat option is salmon. Who ever heard of a menu without chicken. You can get grilled chicken with salad, but there isn't a chicken entree. Are they trying to be a steakhouse? We canceled reservations because of their lack of options. I know it's not my restaurant, but take a lesson from the Dimas Bros, have an option for everyone. You can delete this if you don't agree.

My husband and I were able to sneak in at the bar on Valentines Day without a reservation and it was magical. Everything was perfect! Service was friendly and attentive. Cocktails were thirst quenching. Scallops were phenomenal. The filet and lobster were divine. Triple layer mouse cake was the perfect end note. I left tipsy, satisfied, and a bit spoiled. Thank you!

Amazing birthday experience. Hats off to the chief. Intentional about the details, the plating, and the taste. Our server was absolutely amazing. Joe or Joseph was super friendly, on top of getting our order, made the experience perfect. This is a great date night spot. From the hostess to the food everything was perfect.

Absolutely wonderful food. The presentation and taste of each bite was superb. The waitress we had was just the right amount of friendly and attentive without being bothersome or in your face. This is definitely our new favorite restaurant and will recommend them to anyone who asks about a perfect place to eat in the future.
