I had a wonderful lobster stuffed avocado dish with corn and a herbed aioli. All of the meals at my table were delicious. We made reservations & service was great. Good choice of cocktail specials also.

Without a reservation on Parents Weekend at Conn College, we decided to try this spot. Granted it was early for Saturday night dining (5:30) but nonetheless, she scrambled to get us a table for 5. The menu was varied and the service was great.

I ordered a salad first which was simple but crisp and fresh and the pork loin which was unbelievably delicious! My husband had the muscles in red sauce. He was pleasantly surprised at the perfect amount of spice. He had a seafood dish and... More

We had a family lunch at this restaurant during a family reunion. The restaurant has a large menu specializing in pasta and fish. I chose the littleneck clams with linguini which was very good. Others chose pasta or fish and were very happy. There is a nice wine selection to go with the food. There is also a selection of... More

I've stopped by here on multiple occasions: for lunch meetings, for happy hour, and so on. Each time I am surprised by the menu options and the consistently high quality of what is presented on the plate or in the glass. On top of the food and beverage quality, the service is perfect balance of attentiveness and letting the customers... More

We are very pleased and impressed with our waitress. One from our table has celiac allergy. Our waitress Marycell gave all the details about the menu. My friend ended up having a four course gluten free meal with the help of our waitress. Started with avocado with lobster meat, salad with no crostini, seafood pasta medley with gluten free pasta...

Dined late on a Tuesday and place was not busy. Large selection choice on the menus. Had the seared ahi tuna and two others at the table had the lamb burger and we loved it all. Strawberry shortcake was worth going back just for that. Service was excellent, will go back again!
