Good location

Good location right downtown off the main boulevard and across the street from the start of the boardwalk. The service was good. The food was ok. The Sangria was actually quite good. The calamari was ok, the marinara sauce was good.

Nice, varied menu. Two of us had the special, two had menu items. All was good, as were the drinks, and house wine. Nice environment, not one table on top of another. Good service.

Good consistent food! The calamari appetizer is delicious! My ribeye was perfectly done and the fish was excellent! The J. Lohr chardonnay was a perfect compliment to our meal!

Celebrating a birthday. The staff was very accommodating. They were not very busy for a Saturday night so we received plenty of attention. Our server seemed new, which was fine. Our food ranged from eh to excellent (6 in the group). I would average it a good. The special seemed to be the big hit - veal ravioli.

Allen treated us like garbage. All 7 of us walked out. Never been treated so badly. We sat down at the bar for apps, maybe he was having a bad day, but his behavior was completely unexceptable

This restaurant's history is that it used to be a Piano factory. I love the atmosphere of this eatery. I've eaten here numerous times and I don't think I was ever disappointed. My garden club had a luncheon here and the service and food and drinks were wonderful. I love seeing the colorful umbrellas outdoors in the summertime. A very... More

The food was much below our expectations. The calamari was very chewy and the chicken cacciatore didn't have flavor or freshness. We would not recommend eating here. The live jazz was nice and our server was good.
