"We were afraid this restaurant would be another one of those tourist traps with nice views and so so food. We were pleasantly surprised. You get to overlook the ocean while sitting inside a "pearl". The food was delicious. The wait staff was great also. The prices were standard for nicer restaurants in the area. The only thiing preventing me from giving this place a full 5 stars is that the service was a little out of sync, i .e., the butter came over 10 minutes before the bread. The dessert came several minutes before the coffee. There were multiple servers per table so they were a little out of sync. Otherwise, this would have been a full five star eperience all the way around."

Awesome place right in the Condado Tourist Area adjacent to the beautiful Condado Lagoon, has a very nice dining area but also a large bar next to windows that offer great views of the lagoon and the city at night. We offer a variety of tapas at the bar. It is a great place to go with friends to have a drink and also have a wonderful dinner.

"This was our first time here. We went on a Tuesday night and although the restaurant was nearly full, it was not the vibrant scene we were anticipating. We started with some tapas items that were very good and then proceeded to entrees which were also very good. They had a nice wine list and drink menu. We did not order dessert but were brought some complimentary dessert items, which we did not care for. Wait staff was very nice and attentive. The view was indeed beautiful if you could overlook the small parking area and dumpster right outside the windows. Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience and we would definitely go back if in the area."

From Legal Sea Foods, Legal C Bar emerges–a focused yet full-flavored social urban venue, casual in style. Classic “C” fare like clams, cod, calamari as well as custom cocktails and carafes provides a contemporary, comfortable experience.<br /><br />Our all-day menu features favorites from Legal Sea Foods and LTK as well as new exclusives. Forty-two specialty cocktails and 25 wines by-the-glass satisfy any thirst for fun. Two bars (including one food bar) anchor the restaurant which also features communal tables, wedge booths and mezzanine seating.<br /><br />We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.Come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our restaurant within the new Legacy Place lifestyle center will get you hooked.

If experience is indeed the best teacher, then Demetri and Nicholas Panagopoulos are two of its most successful students. Virtually born into the restaurant business, they are part of a 135 year old heritage of providing fine food and gracious dining to satisfy patrons. Beginning with their grandfather and father"s business in Greece, the two brothers have worked in or owned 27 restaurants throughout Europe and Canada and The United States. Their fourth major venture in America is the Green Valley Steak House. This varied experience shows in the extensive international choices in the luncheon and dinner menus. Luncheon alone offers 39 entrées. <br />In the evening, the intimate atmosphere and soft lighting set a romantic mood in which to enjoy such delicious delicacies as the very popular Filet Mignon while an excellent selection of wines and liquors complement each dish.

"The quality of the food is worse than a frozen dinner yet the prices are those of a good steakhouse. We had a hair in the appetizer and some of the worst food iwe've ever eaten. Tenderloin, which isn't supposed to have any fat, had at lest 50% inedible fat. The tenderloin tips were strangely flavored and chewy. The "demi glace" was a thick, flavorless, powdered gravy maybe trying to mask the horribleness of what was underneath it. We went on a Saturday night and it was empty. Now I know why. They push the desserts because they are supposedly made by Konditor Meister, but the cake was frozen in the middle and tasteless. Save yourself the agony. The food at McDonalds is better than this place."

The place to meet, eat and enjoy the finer things in life. Specializing in 21 day dry aged USDA Prime meats, Kobe beef, Australian lobster tails and offering a wide array of seafood and wines. Join us for our old world charm and impeccable service. Some of our reviews; The New York Times 3 Stars "This steakhouse leaves no item overlooked...." - Crain's "New York's best pocket-sized steakhouse..." - Daily News 4 Stars "...outstanding service and excellent food that is imaginatively prepared..." - Zagat Survey "Mouth watering steaks...a true gem...a friendly staff..." - "Wine Spectator Award of Excellence" - "5 Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences" - Newsday 3 Stars "a handsome slice of a restaurant...Queen's best steakhouse..."

"I expected more from William Jack Degel, maybe that's the problem. Food was very good but other issues, such as waiting 25 minutes even though we had a reservation, them being out of alcohol, very slow service, dirty restrooms, made this visit more memorable for the bad things than the good."
