Food is served as it's ready from the kitchen. Liked all the small plates we had. Owner/chef comes out and is good person to ask about dishes. Good staff. Informal. It's a bit hidden behind the main highway. Follow your GPS.

This place is always a winner. That it ranks at 14 in this area is incomprehensible. Tonight we enjoyed the Asparagus Soup, Heirloom Tomato Martini with Crab, Dirty Rice, Ahi Tuna, and the Beef Skewers. All superb.

We went for dinner and had mixed feelings. The food is very good but the portions (yes, we know they are tapas) were extremely small for the price. As a diner next to us said to his date “2 ounces of calamari and a beef...More

Kind of underwhelmed. First, on our way up from Duck, we called about getting a table for 2 and they told us no, but there were seats at the bar. Got there around 6:15pm or so and there were many open tables, but also many...More
