After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to try this place and were not disappointed. It was within walking distance from our hotel on the riverwalk and had the perfect ambience to quietly celebrate our anniversary. After 8pm, bottles of wine are half price which was a pleasant surprise. The service was experienced if just a bit inattentive. In his defense, a 7 top arrived in the middle of our meal, but we would have ordered dessert had we been asked 10 minutes earlier. But I'm getting ahead of myself. The entrees were wonderful, especially the wasabi encrusted tuna on a bed of corn rice medley with an incredible sweet Thai Chili sauce. The tuna was cooked to perfection at medium, seared on the outside with a rich red center. It was definitely our favorite. The grilled salmon entree was also cooked perfectly at medium, but the bed of barley and spinach it was served on seemed a bit heavy and bland. Overall, it was a wonderful meal and we would definitely return.
