Had to take clients for a business dinner, which is seriously boring most of the time. Our waitress - tamara- genuinely did a great job at making the night fun, and almost like a show. The menu is classic and definitely great quality. And there are tons of healthy options, not to mention they will prepare food however you prefer.

Co-workers and I went to lunch on 5-10-17 for staff appreciation. Our server was fantastic (wish I could remember her name!). I would recommend getting there early due to lunch rush and ongoing construction around the restaurant. The food was superb, service was excellent, wine was fabulous, and I will dig into the "Death by Chocolate" cake later (went in... More

Very, very good. Went for lunch, and they had a delicious selection of seafood. Their blackened fish tacos are made with "scraps" of whatever select fish special that is fresh - not cheap tilapia. So yummy at only $14! Service was wonderful, sat outside in the sunshine - what more could I want? Oh, fresh bread and a relish/olive tray... More

Very fancy restaurant and top quality food. So delicate and tasty. Waiters are really caring and top class. A must try for both fish but also meat lovers.

The service and food were exceptional. My husband and I went to celebrate my 40th birthday. Due to our limited budget this would not be a place that we would eat at on a regular bases. It is however a great place to treat yourself. I loved the baked alaska for dessert.

Had dinner alone on a business trip. Very nice atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff. Service was attentive, but my courses were served a little too quickly. I had a Caesar Salad (big portion for one), Halibut (fresh, nicely prepared), and a glass of wine (seemed to be a smallish portion for $11). Total bill was $75- seemed a little expensive.

Never been disappointed here. Sunday night for dollar oysters, always fresh and very good, shrimp and grits are another favorite. Had not been here for about 6 months but the bartender remembered us, great service. We won't wait 6 months to be back again

Everything about my experience was good to great -- the service, atmosphere, and food quality -- except for one (key) component: my colleague and I got extremely sick after eating here, so sick that we both have taken 2 days off from work. Ordinarily, I would be very hesitant to pin food sickness on one specific meal, but quite a... More
