we went to dinner here with friends and our experience was OK, not great like many other reviews. It is a nice restaurant with good ambience and a varied and interesting menu. I was disappointed that there was no "catch of the day" on the menu. This is, after all Florida 's Gulf Coast with abundant fresh seafood available. An... More

Whether I go there for lunch or dinner the staff is friendly and the food always exceptional. Enjoy their excellent selection of wine, especially their wine paring meals.

One of the first I visited when moving here a year ago and still one of my favorites in the area. Great food in an unhurried atmosphere with returning cosmopolitan travelers from all over the world, coupled with just the right level of music (whether live or recorded) to enhance, rather than distract from conversations charming patrons and equally charming...

I took a friend for lunch yesterday and we both enjoyed unusual, exceptional meals. My friend had the appetizer special, salmon cakes with Roulade sauce and greens. I ordered... More

One of my favorite places to dine! Food is always excellent and enjoyed in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. Allie and Eddy go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied with their cuisine and service. Wine tastings are fun and I enjoy the creativity and thought that goes into each dish. Also, great atmosphere and music.
