My partner and I stopped in here for drinks and stayed for dinner in the bar area. Our server was excellent helping us select wines and the best dinner options. We shared oysters, crab cakes, calamari, and shashimi tuna. It was all very fresh and the preparation was wonderful. Great food combined with excellent service and the best view in... More

Always enjoy eating here and the service we received was excellent. I did experience sticker shock at how much prices have went up. So this will be more of a treat to go here instead of a weekly or monthly visit

Spent 70 dollars for a lunch that should have cost about 40 dollars. The food was nothing spectacular not much better than Red Lobster IMHO

I was in town for business and actually ended up eating here both nights. The first night we were staying at the Doubletree at the Monroeville Mall and we're looking for someplace decent that was close by and chose it based on Trip Advisor reviews. The second night it turned out to be the restaurant for a larger group that... More

Location is quite hidden and it was a surprise to discover this cool restaurant that serves unusual taste combinations. Sit down and eat slowly!

Thank you to the Manager(Matt) and server (Brian) for a fantastic experience for our out of town visitors. The staff were extremely attentive and no request was too much trouble. The meals were fantastic starting with the calamari appetizer that just melted in your mouth. The entrees of Red Snapper and Stuffed Filet Mignon were perfectly prepared and delicious. The... More

Yes, the restaurant is hidden not just in a mall but very small "store front"/lackluster entrance. We arrived on a Monday night to a dead restaurant. The staff was bored to death, dragging their feet, tattered clothing and frankly I wouldn't hire any of the staff. The decor is average but for the prices they charge/ type restaurant they are...

Overall very good, but I had the feeling the fish wasn't fresh. The crab cake while very good had an underlying hint of being masked and was quite small. The mahi tacos were okay, but had a fishy odor. Cole slaw was very good and service was impeccable. I doubt I'll return when back in the area based on this... More
