Relaxing meal with a little bit of piano music.

My husband and I ate at this lovely spot with another couple. We ate upstairs in a little room just outside of the bar. We had a Summer prix fixe menu and all of us enjoyed our meals and the cocktails were perfection. Service was the best I've had in ages. I must make note of the particularly... read more

I came here last year on my last night in Longboat for a few cocktails before departing the next morning back to Kentucky. My girlfriend and I had a really excellent experience.

Having moved to the Sarasota area fairly recently, this was our first, but by no means last, visit to this most charming restaurant. While it is just off the main road, the setting is charming, intimate and quiet. The menu offers a nice variety of choices. My husband ordered the signature pepper steak which was featured that evening. This fine... More

Hello, and thank you for your review! It is so wonderful to hear that your Father’s Day dinner was great! The prime peppered steak is one of our personal favorites from the menu, as well as the veal! Both so full of flavor, you simply can’t go wrong. Oh Chef Ray! He’s quite a character isn’t he? He always circulates... More

After 10 years we returned to celebrate a special occasion and were a little tentative based upon a few negative comments that implied mixing children with the experience. This is not a restaurant for the younger than 13 crowd. It is however a wonderful dining experience that has maintained its superb level of culinary quality, service,and a family commitment for...

Went twice to one of our favorite restaurants in a week(been coming for 25 years) They had a special on for about $40.00(upstairs in the loft) which included three courses. The Duck was extremely dry and virtually unedible. Luckily our server noticed this and did knock it off the bill, although he didnt have to as the price was still... More

Food and service excellent - setting just perfect. Reasonably priced creative menu. A little pricey but certainly worth it considering the incredible view (and quality of the food.) Highly recommend.

This is the 2ndtime back at restaurant, and we had same issue. This is a restaurant that consists of small rooms. Both times, other guests at larger tables in these rooms were loud.

Hello! Thank you for your review. As you can see, our restaurant is small and quaint. We do our best to seat guests accordingly. However, when we have large parties, it is difficult to move them into a separate area since we are a smaller restaurant and have designated seating for such parties.

What a treasure! Book in advance if you are going on the weekend. Order their signature pepper steak. Food is high quality, unusual but not over the top. Small intimate surroundings but you can hear yourself talk. Lively bar scene upstairs and the dessert room is not to be missed. More availability early in the week if you can go... More

This establishment typifies old school service and an upscale menu. Top Notch food preparation with a wine list to match. The interior design is elegant and fairly quiet. Excellent dessert choices.

I used to come here with my family for 15 years - the last year being 2001. Since then, the restaurant has not changed which was so wonderful. The food was SUPERB.
