Best food and service of any restaurant that we have visited. Service and staff are first. Waiters and waitresses in Tuxedos.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Dined here multiple times, each time is wonderful and delicious. Definitely order the caesar salad! The Filet Mignon is delicious as well. Make sure you try the pepper jelly with the bread!

“Don't want business”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Called today to make reservations for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The young woman who answered the phone was rude at best, put me on hold and never came back. After waiting 10 minutes I called and made reservations elsewhere. They apparently don't need the business and I don't have to eat there

“Great place Downtown, Fort Myers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This place is really an old house that was made into a restaurant. It has a courtyard in the back with a wonderful fish pond and tropical flowers all over the place. The food is really good and the atmosphere can't be beat.

“Overated at Dinner; Great Lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Two meals: one lunch and one dinner a couple of weeks apart. The lunch was delicious, wonderful atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Recommend highly. Dinner was a different matter. Of course, the atmosphere was still the same. Romantic. Lovely bar. The food, however, could not be finished; the steak was tough and tasteless. The seafood was overcooked.
And the prices outrageous. Sad.
