This small bistro-style restaurant knows how to cook seafood. My sea scallops were prepared to delicate perfection. Service is attentive, but not intrusive.

I like the option of the 3-course meal for one price. My choices, the seared ahi, mahi mahi over pesto, créeme brûlée were all delicious. Lovely evening for conversation of breath and depth between old friends.
