It made no difference! The food was AMAZING as was the service. A restaurant I would hold up against the best in the world! Well done-- we are changing our plans to eat there a second time before we leave the keys.

The filet was cooked to perfection, the scallops were heavenly, the vegetables were perfectly done. Seasoning was on the light side, and the flavor of the food was able to speak for itself.

The Sushi is as good as I have had in Asia, each roll is 8 pieces, so I ordered two different types. Could easily have had more but it was late and I decided not to be greedy. Loved it!!

Haven't been here for years so decided to try again. It was even better than the first time. Very creative rolls and the server/bartender (thanks Angela)really made great suggestions. Great wine list too! You have to try this spot.
