The food was wonderful and fresh. The chicken wasn't dry and the veggies were full of flavor. I loved how the place was decorated! I will continue to come back to see what it looks like next.

This place is amazing!!! The food is fabulous and the staff is great!! James is our favorite waiter... we are regulars there and we love it!! James knows us by name and brings out our regular drinks and appetizers without asking!!! My husband is in love with the calamari. He says it's the best around!!!
