Extensive wine list but a more limited dinner menu. While limited the menu covers the bases and the food is excellent. Started with a foie gras — nicely done and the duck entree. The duck was paired with cauliflower paulinaise. Duck was excellent and I...More

Nice plate for lunch on a rainy day. Food was okay. Pleasant to sit at a booth with appetizers and soup. Walk across the street to try some amazing oils and balsamic vinegars, especially the white truffle oil and the fig balsamic vinegar.

If you are looking for an outstanding meal with great service this is your place. Great small local neighborhood location that is sure to impress. Don't miss the sizzling shrimp starter. Their crudo starter also always impresses. This is the place for a special meal,

A return visit. Our favorite eatery on Magazine. Have rated 5 stars before. Service attentive and impeccable. However, when several entrees on a limited menu are unavailable this should be a red flag. Let's hope this is just an anomaly and not indicative of a...More

I loved their wagyu beef. The fish was well done. The palm hearts salad is very light. Very good service and we were blessed to have a booth which I always love.

picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
