We stopped here first because it was right around the corner from our hotel. The food was really good. I had the lobster risotto-YUM. The restaurant was pretty busy and the service was fast and our waitress was pleasant. I saw a few comments prior about service and food were not that great, but... read more

We had a pretty long wait but it was definitely worth it. The food was incredible. My husband and I got the most delicious appetizer. Potato skins filled with shrimp, lobster and crab, covered in cheese. I had the filet which was done perfectly and the chocolate mousse was to die for. Definitely a must if you are anywhere near...

I was visiting a friend in Mystic, Ct and wanted to have drinks overlooking the water and this is really one of the best places. At 6 on a Saturday there was a 45 min wait for a table inside and an hour and a half for outside. However, we noticed that there were empty high top tables along the... More

Let me qualify this by saying I am a total food and wine snob. Although I can be laid back and devour a plate of wings with a good microbrew, I really appreciate great service great food and great wine. This place delivered that in spades... Although the wine list is just decent . Kristen and Justin did a superb... More

The service and views from the patio were excellent! The menu is limited and the food, while unusual and well presented, was both very overpriced and in small portions. The seafood ambrosia was mainly stuffing ($25/26) and the chicken overly salted. The cheapest wine was $13-$14 a glass. The marguerita was delicious and the best deal for $10. This place... More

My dinner here was a highlight of my trip to Mystic, CT. I sat on the patio and had a table right on the river. Beautiful. It was busy but didn't distract from the peaceful setting. I had a good feeling as soon as we walked in but new we made a good choice when our server, Melissa, greeted us... More

There was a half hour wait for tables but we got seats at the bar. The food was excellent and the service was very good. Nice view of the Mystic River.
