Husband and I came for our 15th wedding anniversary. Service was beyond perfect, food was absolutely perfect and the ambiance was just right.

Every day has a different special item in two different categories. There is a daily chef special and then the standard classic menu. The wait staff are in tux shirts and skilled. There is a patio area that is absolutely delightful in good weather.

The restaurant is very southern, the food was excellent, especially the table-side caesar salad. It may be the best caesar salad that I have ever had. The service was outstanding. If we go back to Ft Myers, we would definitely go back to the restaurant.
