The positive: both dishes (seafood pappardelle and pad Thai) were delicious, as was the desert (salted caramel cheesecake). Love the decor--as another reviewer stated, reminiscent of Key West. The drawbacks: No bread with your meal. Portions are light, and whatever it says you get with your... read more

Went twice over two weeks, ordered the same things both times. While the crab cakes were good both times the ravioli was great the first time and terrible the second time. Both visits were on weekday evenings and there were very few diners. When the food is good it's pricey but worth it. The same server both visits and she... More

It wasn't a very busy evening, seemed to have plenty of staff on hand, but somehow water glasses ran dry, the appetizer never arrived and "rolls" came out of a Pillsbury bag. Fish entree was eatable...would have had a better meal at home.

Meat was over cooked-prefer it on the plate not on top of potatoes. A salad would have been nice. Desert was great.

Our server Jeanne was great, friendly, efficient, engaging and as busy as they were she took time with us to chat. Service has always been great. Bring your own beverage, $5 corking fee, the staff is really accommodating. Of course the chowder and bisque are a must, we really came back for the twisted noodles my wife said she dreams... More

The atmosphere is really cool. Murals on some walls with bright, vivid colors. Stained glass windows...it's just a great place. The food is sooooo yummy. It has been a year or so since I was there, but nothing has changed. They don't take credit cards so make sure you take cash or check. Try it, you'll like it!

We have been there several times, usually with a Groupon or Living Social deal. Always freindly service and fresh food. The lobster bisque is one of my favorites.
