Always a great place to go. The menu is creative and my family has had almost all items on It throughout the year. They are a great place to go for a group of 8 or a dinner for 2.
The service is excellent, just enough attention. It is a BYOB and they help pour your wine.
I've even enjoyed lunches here with a group of 10.
You can dress up or clean casual and feel comfortable. The interior is beautiful and you can talk without a disturbance of other tables making too much noise.

I have to say the menu and specials are delicious, I've even gone into orders like a shank if lamb and it was mouth watering yummy. ( I normally order seafood when I'm out.)

Please go there and enjoy your meal.

This restaurant is amazing! Went there a week ago and had the best food we've eaten in a long time. We started with the Shrimp Etouffee and a Caesar Salad. The shrimp dish was incredibly delicious - it's not the classic New Orleans version but IMHO much better. Lots of shrimp and andouilee sausage with onions, peppers in a light cream sauce on a bed of fried okra. Fantastic and a very large portion for an appetizer. The salad was also excellent, not drowning in dressing like many restaurants do.

For entrees, we had the Seared Tuna Steak and the Paella - both were so delicious. The chef has a light touch with sauces that really enhances the food. The menu is also very interesting as there are some unusual ingredients or dishes prepared in a unique way.

Full to the max, we still ordered dessert and wound up taking it home with us after a couple of bites. It was a dense chocolate mousse cake - to die for.

Service is excellent; really the entire staff is top-notch. We can't wait to visit again!

We go here often for lunch. Nice quiet ambiance. The food is good, although dinner prices are a bit high for a restaurant that is BYOB. Lunch Prix Fixe menu is well worth it.

Had dinner last night with friends and tried the Wasabi Crusted Salmon. This was the most wonderful salmon dish I have ever tasted. I'm ready to head back again tonight! We have never had anything at this restaurant that we didn't love and the staff is very nice. Being a BYOB makes this the perfect spot,.

Blah! We had flys flying around our table attacking us. Gross. Was there for lunch and it cost more then it should. Food was cold too. Had open faced turkey sandwich and nothing about it was remarkable and the turkey was not warmed.
One person ordered no onions but got onions. Where is attention to detail?
Soup was delicious though, some kind of pumpkin bisque.
Just not good enough for the money spent. Won't return.
