We went here last night with friends and were we all blown away. They had been here a year ago or so, but another friend highly recommended it recently to us, so we went and what a treat! The chef is unbelievable. Everything we had was homemade and prepared to delight. Attention to detail was awesome and yet the portions... More

My husband and mom were both with me and we all felt it was just "ok" The service was good enough, but the food and menu selection were "average"

Very good leisurely Saturday lunch with friends . Excellent food with a slightly limited lunch menu. (Dinner menus are much more extensive.) Server was very good and very helpful. Crab bites were a perfect appetizer. Our party had 3 different shrimp dishes and all were very good with large shrimp perfectly cooked.

Came in on a Sunday around 4:30 and the restaurant was not crowded. Our server was excellent and let us know what the specials were. The 3 in my group each got a prix fixe meal, and everything was excellent. I had the sea scallops and shrimp over a vegetable fried rice, a great meal. The others both had a... More

This fine establishment started out as a storefront restaurant. Demand was so intense, they built a larger place, but kept the quality of its food. The interior has a romantic flair to it. As well, a bistro-style outdoor setting. Live musical entertainment is provided to set the mood of enjoying a relaxing evening with your loved one(s). We enjoyed their... More

Do yourself a favor and try the tuna poke. It's delicious. The grouper sandwich was also really good.

If you love great food and great service, you have to give this place a try. My absolute favorite thing there is actually something that is on the daily specials menu frequently. The chef told me that I could order it anytime regardless of it being on the specials menu or not. It is shrimp and spinach fried rice with... More

The food was amazing. We had the the ceviche for the appetizer, which was made fresh and great quality. They give you a lot for what you pay! Coconut shrimp with cilantro lime rice and potato pancake for me, fried shrimp wth broccoli and cheese grits for my mother. Both amazing. Quick service but absolutely amazing service. We had Dan...
