One of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. Made reservation and arrived on time. We were seated then waited 20 minutes before anyone even came to our table. My husband had to go to the bar himself to get drinks. When the server finally came she didn't greet us or tell us the specials, just said "can I take... More

I wasn't expecting much and was very pleasantly surprised by the friendly service and great food. I had the poached halibut special and it was delicious. I returned the following night and sat at the bar. The friendly bartender made an amazing savory strawberry daiquiri with basil. I ordered the spicy shrimp pasta dish from the menu and the shrimp...

Halibut special was great, duck risotto had minimal duck and what it had was fatty and . . . (not so good). Beet salad was marginal. cannoli was also great as was the wine list. Take a shot but keep your expectations under control.

So disappointing. The Eggplant Parmesan was tough and soggy. Not crispy as menu stated. It was served in a bowl with spaghetti under it. The marinara did not have a good flavor, sweet. I was up charged for the spaghetti, it was barley warm and all stuck together. Did not know there was an up charge for spaghetti. I left... More

I loved the tomato basil soup. I never go crazy over soup but this was a pleasant surprise. The bruschetta was also decent. My husband went with the make your on hand tossed pizza which was good. The ambiance is nice. P.S. We came to this restaurant thinking it is Mediterranean because Google search shows it as Mediterranean.

Great food. Good wine list. Most of the staff are really nice....although one was seemingly a little put off by my arrival and never warmed up a bit. She was barking (quietly, but easily within my earshot) to another male employee. This should not keep you from going! Great place! It's just nice when you know you are wanted there... More

The ambience, the service, the food... all fantastic! We could talk about just the art on the walls and have plenty to remember about the restaurant, but what really had us was the she-crab soup. Tried to get the recipe from the server but they weren't offering. Eggplant parm was wonderful. Their homemade lasagna was wonderful. But I would kill... More

the lobster bisque soup was very good but could have been served warmer. The waitress was very nice and informative. I had the half turkey sandwich with cup of soup. I didn't care for the greens in the sandwich and pulled most of them out. They were bitter tasting. As it was my sister's birthday she was given a complimentary... More
