Over Priced Small Plate (Is very small)
Date Of Last Visit: 7/25/2016

Food wise its good, your not going to get bad quality. What you are going to get is little food for very high prices for what you get. They could make these prices about half for the expense it costs them. If they are going to stick to "small plates" style lower the prices to about 10 dollars or 8 dollars each plate. You will still make money. You have to order like 3 things to actually feel like you eat something. Yes I understand its a resort setting, but to be honest at vivo "premier" Italian restaurant on city walk, you can go to emeril's I can get a full meal, desert, and have pasta made from scratch paying less or same as Strong Water. Its over priced for what your giving. Increase the portion size to a normal small plate size and you might get away with the prices your charging,
