I came in without a reservation, but was able to get a table in a few minutes. Servers were great and of course I had the Crab Cakes with unique vegetables and sauce. Large wine selection too.

Truly enjoyed my first visit. If you are vegetarian, ask for the vegetarian menu that also includes some vegan options. The clams were amazingly delicious!

Everything we took was very nice. Maybe only the carrot pie was average. The rest - stake, soup, salats - all had delicious taste. And of course fantasctic cocktails - especially the one with bubbles :) Will be happy to go there again!

The lobster soup was delicious and just what I needed after an 8 hour flight, 3 hours US customs experience... 😫, and 6 hours time difference 😴. The Cesar salad was average; however really nice standard for a chain restaurant.
