My wife and I had dinner here on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was mostly full but not too noisy. In fact the noise level became quite reasonable after a table of four men left. Service was fairly slow but in our opinion desirably slow as it should be at a nice restaurant in order to thoroughly enjoy the evening.... More

Great ambiance, service and good food. The bruchetta had three different toppings served in shot glasses with tiny spoons that you put on toast, the meatball raviolli was spicy and delicious but best of all was the dessert. We shared the cream puff as it was gigantic filled with custard, topped with whip cream and chocolate sauce and surrounded by... More

Very comfortable dining area, the food was outstanding - presentation, taste and quality - and the service was perfect ! (We had been to a better-ranked St. Augustine restaurant the night before, and this experience was significantly better) -

Excellent service, crab soup delightful, chicken entree was superb seafood in tomato based dish was good; but mussels too large and tough, scallops excellent, clams too small, fish fine. for the price $70.00+ for two, not good enough.

Needed a place to eat lunch and get out of the rain. We found this restaurant to have small plates that provided a diversity in the meal. We had mussels, bruschetta bread with three toppings and prosciutto and melon. Everything well prepared and tasty.

If you want good food, although not inexpensive, and you want a nice quiet romantic place away from all of the crowds in St. Augustine, this is a good choice. Neither the menu or the wine list is extensive and the wine list is a bit over-priced. But the food and service were very good and the ambiance makes this... More

We could not get a reservation on a holiday weekend but decided to try for a table anyway. I am very glad we did. We were seated within 15 minutes of arriving. The service was excellent as was the food. This is my new favorite dinner spot in St. Augustine. The bread service included an herb infused olive oil and... More

We ate here on Valentine's Day. They had a limited menu, but they did tell us ahead of time that it would be a fixed price and 4 courses. The food and service were very good. We would like to come back to see their normal menu some day.

Went as part of a food tour. Will be back. Appetizer we had was shrimp on a arugula bed. Excellent! Not sure of the prices but a high end experience that easily tops the restaurant in the Casa Monica which is down the street. Definitely need reservations.
