Best chicken fried oysters I have ever eaten! A must try appetizer. The service is impeccable and dining outdoors on a beautiful day or evening is a great experience. The Kobe burger was delectable and the crab cake was outstanding.

Made a reservation through Open Table. When we arrived we learned that there was a private wine tasting party scheduled so we were turned away without an apology. Had a great meal at Lorenzo's.
