The rest of the time was smoothed over by a very conscientious and attentive waitress making up for our tepid experience...... More

I've been coming here since Houston and its nostalgic The outdoor seating area is great to people watch Seafood pasta was filled with fresh clams, mussels, fish and shrimp. No would have preferred a less creamy sauce - this is similar to vodka.
