3 of us stopped by here after an evening cruising around the island. A few drink and some of the smaller fare to share. A couple of kinds of sliders and something else that I cant remember, too many drinks earlier in the evening.

Went here for evening meal and drinks. We loved the cocktails which were the first grown up cocktails we have had since being in Florida! Nice flavours and not full of sugary slush. Spinach gyozas (sp?) for starter and then veggie sliders for main. Really nice, fresh and different. Friendly waitress and all around great meal. Would definitely visit again... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch while walking around Duvall St. Very nice restaurant. Ordered the El Cubano Sandwich, was way more than I needed, but worth it. Ordered a mix of two different ale's (bartender seemed shocked by this) but all was excellent at this place.

...certainly the best of the ones I went to. This restaurant is set back in a very pretty courtyard off Duval and the more laid back ambience of the location makes it feel much further from the Duval bustle. Great outdoor seating in the right weather. We were a party of 6 with dishes ranging from scallops to catch of... More

This was my first time here, I am a local and they offer local discount. I tried the shrimp and grits and absolutely loved my dish. Both of my friends ordered the steak, presentation was beautiful and everything was cooked to perfection. The spinach dumplings were okay, the Shanghai calamari was spicy and and the toast with the brie cheese... More

The combination of ingredients makes for some very wonderful taste combinations. Can't pin down the style except that it will satisfy every palate. There is a little for everyone. Will walk away happy. Customer service was top notch. Candace made sure our visit was personable and special.

We met up with old friends for a lovely Sunday Brunch. Located at northerly end of Duval with ample parking in Duval Square. Fantastic to find a cool spot with no lines at 11 on Sunday! Fun flight of Mary's for my daughter and excellent green ( tomatillo) Mary for me. Food was fresh, tasty and great selection. Our server,... More
