I had not been to AC in over twenty years and wanted to find the best dining option for our one night in town. Café 2825 was booked so I left a voicemail. Lucky for us, they had a cancellation and called us. This was not just a meal, it was an experience! We chose to do all tableside dishes... More

There are no words to describe the experience my husband and I had at this restaurant last night. The food is simply amazing and the service is impeccable. Nothing but real authentic Italian with dishes such as mozzarella, Caesar salad, and pasta in a cheese wheel all made tableside. We had Tripe and stuffed calamari that brought back such memories...

After a month of forgettable meals while renovating our kitchen, we took a chance and went to 2825 without a reservation. We were offered two seats at the bar and started the Pesto Shrimp plus an Octopus and Lump Crab Salad from the specials menu. Both were excellent.
