We enjoy this restaurant with my husband's parents. The service is always great and especially kind to the folks (from Heath Village). Food has never disappointed- always special and delicious.

The one tricky thing is finding the place- it's hidden next to a laundromat in a small strip mall. Very nice inside.

You can bring in a bottle of wine and there's a liquor store very close by.

The waitress was very sweet and friendly but the food was average. We went twice and both times we were a bit disappointed with the meal.

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.
