A definite must!

The crab cakes were the best any of us have EVER had (and we are all from south Louisiana)!! Our waitress, Jennifer, was so attentive and gave us good... read more

Many places to eat while at PAX River NAS however a good friend recommended this restaurant. Although small the service and the food is outstanding. Our waitress was very nice and very professional. Try the Crab cake. Best around.

This was our 3rd visit for dinner. Each time we hoped to see what more positive reviewers found. But, alas, no luck. Small, noisy. Menu hasn't changed. My Jack Daniels Manhattan did not taste as though this premium bourbon was used or a poor quality rail red vermouth overpowered it. My salad was overdressed & limp. The catfish was bland.... More

I was surprised at how expensive the menu was, considering the simple cafe atmosphere. It seemed a bit pretentious, but it was good food.

The ambience and service are very nice for a quiet, special dinner. Nice selection of wines. The Savory Cheesecake appetizer is reflective of a great chef and inventive recipes. Great view of the fields across the road and the water beyond.

Visiting Solomon's, checked TripAdvisor and it seemed hands down this was the place, and it was true to form. Great food, great service, easy parking. We all had the special of the day, crab cake salad and loved it. We got 3 desserts and 6 forks--all yummy!

We ate dinner here last weekend, and were absolutely delighted with our dinner, drinks and dessert! It had been a couple of years since we visited the area, and we wanted to see if this restaurant was as great as we remembered. It is! The restaurant is extremely popular, so you may have a short (15 min.) wait on your... More

The food is amazing, let's get that out of the way from the start. I had the Mediterranean pasta and my wife had the honey blackened salmon. The hummus we started with was some of the best we have had since leaving the Middle East. But conversation is fruitless. This is NOT a quiet spot for a romantic dinner

We've been to the CD Cafe a few times and I've delayed writing a review because I dislike writing bad reviews for non-food issues. Every dinner we've had at CD Cafe has been very good. The beer selection is not good - unless you enjoy the lightest beers. But the real problem: Set in an office building, the acoustics are... More

Small. Quaint. Classy. Pricey. Although this is the favorite destination of a good friend of mine, I would rather visit other area establishments such as Lotus and Kingfishers.
