“Disappointing dinner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We ordered 3 meals and only one was good. We were very disappointed with the sirloin which had a funny, almost gamey taste. (All 3 of us did not like the taste or texture.) It was tough and did not taste like beef. The fish special of the day was Sea Bass. When it was served, we knew immediately it was not what we expected. When asked where the Sea Bass was from, the waiter explained it was from South Carolina. This was not explained to us prior to ordering it. Of course, we were expecting the most common Chilean Sea Bass. The overall experience was a disappointment.

“Good food, horrible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

There were 4 of us for brunch on Sunday. The hostess knew we were seated, but it was 15 minutes before we were acknowledged. We had to ask someone to wait on us, and when we got our waitress to come over we felt like we were imposing. She did get a little friendlier as the brunch went on, but truly started out poorly. We were 2 minutes from walking out before she came to our table. The food is delicious here, which is why I gave it 3 circles. Our host and hostess have been here many times, yet they don't seem to be recognized at all. Not by sight or by name (which appears on the reservation list often).

“Great little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is a great place for dinner. Food was wonderful and the service was great. We sat outside on the terrace as the evening temperature was optimal. There was not much traffic on the road out front which was a nice surprise. Great place for a romantic dinner or to celebrate a special occasion.

“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The food was pretty good...though the veal was a little overcooked. The She Crab soup was FABULOUS! I highly recommend it! There was live music on the Thursday night that we went and we really enjoyed it.
