My last visit to Chive Blossom Cafe was with a friend for lunch. For starters, I ordered a cup of She Crab Soup, which was void of any shell, creamy and delicious. As I often do at lunch, I had a light meal of Crab Slaw, an amazing chilled salad featuring lump crab meat, tomatoes, artichokes, and drizzled with lemon... More

Wow. Each course from the appetizers to the dessert was fantastic. We had the sautéed conch to start wow. That was only topped by the shrimp and Gouda stuffed dates wrapped in bacon. What favors!! The filet was one of the best I have had. Cute place too. Definitely worth the drive. Reasonable prices, friendly staff, good wine selection.

Still giving them an Excellent rating because I have never had even a mediocre meal here. Had the Mai Mai over Zucchini Spaghetti with a tarragon cream sauce. No tarragon flavor and the sauce was watery. The chopped salad was excellent as always. I would drop the Zucchini Spaghetti from the menu. I think it was a special.

The food is always delicious and trendy. I especially like the lamb pita salad and soups. Very pretty inside and especially like eating in the garden in the evening - very twinkly.

From She Crab Soup(we always take some to go) to the salad, to the meal everything was great. The fish was fresh and well prepared. The Key Lime Pie was outstanding.

While the building is nothing to talk about, the food was excellent. Best crab cakes and mashed potatoes with lobster that I have ever tasted. The restaurant has an extensive wine list.

The place has local accessed food prepared in innovative, delicious ways. We had the shrimp stuffed dates wrapped in bacon, sautéed conch, fried oysters and Greek inspired lamb. It was all so good we had trouble figuring out which was best. Each was delicious in its own right but so uniquely different from the others that comparison was too difficult.... More

Amazingly well prepared food selections in a very small facility. Excellent staff and service. Reservation necessary for assured seating.
