We had lunch here yesterday and the owner was delightful. Had delicious tuna tartare with Granny Smith apples. It was delicious. Hubby had fresh mahi mahi and it was cooked perfectly. The wine choices were great too.

Main dishes were pretty bad: 1)Beef "Bavette" was overcooked; although fries were good. 2)Red Snapper "Mille-feuilles"...More
