We also enjoyed the calamari appetizer, chef salad, beef tenderloin medallions, crab cakes and salmon. Each course was expertly served and artfully plated. Portions were generous and the early bird prices much appreciated. It was the best meal we have... More

The escargot in puff pastry was tender, not rubbery, with a delicious, buttery sauce. The salads were exceptionally crisp and fresh; we especially liked the peppercorn... More

This fine restaurant is located in Shoppes at Edgewater, a run down strip mall across from Holiday Inn Resort. We're glad we went inside. The upscale decor and menu made it a special dining experience. Service was excellent and the meal was delicious. The menu has many tempting choices and portions are large so it is easy to order more... More
