“Did not disappoint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2010

What a delightful establishment! Very attentive staff, wonderful food, nice decor (I loved the painting of the martini hanging on the ceiling). A little expensive for our budget but a nice treat - and they do have a $15 early bird menu if you get there before 6 PM. Easy to find - just at the foot of the footbridge at 7th and Grand. Between us, we had the coconut shrimp, watermelon salad with kalamata olives and feta, linguine with spinach and shrimp and the duck bok choy salad. All great eating. Do it - you won't be sorry!

“Surprisingly innovative salads, well-prepared dinners, yummy brownie dessert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2010

The exterior of the restaurant looks dated, but go inside anyway. The interior isn't fancy but is comfortable with original art covering the walls. Wine list was adequate and fairly priced. My watermelon salad was delightful combination of unusual and well-balanced flavors. My husband's bok choy and crispy duck salad was hearty and delicious. My seafood linguine was a standard, and was well-prepared with truly al dente pasta, good clams, mussels and shrimp, and a nice but not excessive portion size. My husband's sea bass (not Chilean) wasn't dolled up with any sauces and was also well-prepared. The dessert list is short with no surprises, but included some thick chunks of warm brownie with ice cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream, and what could be better?

“To Fishy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2010

I ordered the Sea Scallops and Tiger Shrimp, the first bite tasted fishy. The rest of the dish was the same. The sauce it was cooked in was over powered by the fish taste. Just the fishy taste in both the shrimp and scallops. Will not eat at this restaurant again.
