High quality seafood and excellent service. I ate dinner at the bar and wouldn't have had any better service if I was at a table with a group of people. Very friendly and willing to take time to talk about the food and give suggestions.

We were a group of 8 friends and everyone was really happy with their meal. A little pricy but great quality and service.

Not a happy evening. Wife's dinner was bland with no flavor. Kids went with side dishes and appetizers. I made mistake of eating Sushi. Hoping tums work. Worst $100 spent for a long time.

We had excellent service and an excellent meal. Bread was warm, salads were fresh, meals were innovative, well seasoned and well proportioned. I had the gumbo, loved it. One friend had the lobster risotto - it was perfect, so that's the one I recommend.

A very inviting and pleasant restaurant. Not Michelin level cuisine, but really quite good. Service was excellent, and the meal portions and drink sizes were very generous. Both my spouse and I selected the prix fixe menu, and, while the Caesar salad was a bit...More
