Great service, great food and a wonderful atmosphere. Blackened Mahi Mahi served over arugula, caramelized onions, dates, pecans, tomatoes, pepperoncinis and a drizzle of balsamic glaze-Yum Yum.

Lots of reviews are glowing but we did not have the same experience. We were only the second group of four in the restaurant and they wanted to seat us right next to the existing table of dinners. It is not a big place but come on. Not a good start. We asked for another table and they accommodated us.... More

We went here for the second time with good friends, and, as before, the food, atmosphere, service, were terrific. My husband and I each had the special filet of sole, which was prepared beautifully. Since my husband is allergic to shrimp--and the dish came with clams and shrimp--the chef made his with extra clams and no shrimp. Our friends had... More

You would not believe that a restaurant this good would be in this strip mall next to a Chinese carry-out, but it is! The veal dishes are the best we have ever had--tender, tasty. and reasonably priced. We were blown away when our friends took us here. Everyone at the table (8 of us) gave the food, atmosphere and entertainment... More

We had not eaten at this restaurant in a year or two. Previously it had seemed nice and the food was good. Now it looks like someone with good taste has redecorated with new furniture and paintings. The food was amazingly good, better than remembered from the past. Service was fantastic. I had chicken with artichoke, prosciutto, and other toppings.... More

We ordered two dishes: One - a veal scallopine over 'fresh string beans'.The dish came without the string beans substituted with potatoes. When the waitress was asked she said something like, "Oh they didn't change the menu!" WORSE was an order of pork tenderloin. It was an inedible PORK CHOP. Again the waitress told us it wasn't changed on the... More

The location is not impressive , but, the food is fabulous. Appetizers, Tapas and dinners were ordered and enjoyed by a large group. Champagne to coffee we all enjoyed the evening. Gloria the owners is charming. Call ahead for reservations. A must try.

Great food, but damn - switch it up every now and then! Good service and great tasting food. Same stuff almost every time, though. Getting lazy, or too busy with other restaurants?

Gloria! You could just sing her name! The restaurant is amazing, the atmosphere-if you go on the right night;) is awesome! And the food is magnificent! Especially the Paella and the Stuffed plums:) they are stuffed with goat cheese and some other surprises! It is a must to go and check this place out :)
