Do get there early, this place gets crazy busy. I had the blackened snapper which was outstanding. Nice wine by the glass. Staff was outstanding.

Make your reservations early, the restaurant fills up quick. The food is excellent and so is the atmosphere. It was our 25th wedding anniversary, we were looking for somewhere special to celebrate. Right next to International Mall, so you can do alittle shopping when you are done.

Nice, hip atmosphere, great food and services. Generous portions for an up-scale restaurant. This is terrific. Had the Artic Char, carrot cake AND peanut butter moose - all fresh and delicious. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for at this place. they even called me the next day just to check-in and make sure I was happy.

This restaurant is often touted as a wonderful seafood house, and so it is. However, it is also a fantastic steak house as well. You will be blown away by the menu. We had three appetizers to begin this culinary experience: a dozen blue points on the half shell, the best shrimp cocktail I have ever had, bar none, and,... More

First let me say the food was very good. And if you are looking for an evening of memorable presented courses of food this is your place. White truffle popcorn is what you would expect in a venue such as this. I must say it was a treat. The shrimp arrive under dry ice which just magnifies the presentation. Drinks... More

This restaurant is top notch. I especially enjoy the berries and bubbly cocktail and the blackened red snapper is the best I've ever had. Be sure to have a reservation, especially on the weekends.

I've been here for lunch and dinner and left impressed and pleased each time. Strengths: 1) Excellent seafood I've tried the grouper (locally caught) and served with clams, pancetta, blistered tomatoes, and chili flakes. It is delicious. The chilean sea bass is the house favorite and it too is excellent. It is served with whipped potatoes and champagne truffle sauce.... More

My wife and I went there to celebrate 20 years. The food was absolutely amazing. The calamari appetizer is awesome. I had the sea bass and my wife had the salmon. Both dinners were delicious. All the food is freshly made and can be changed from the menu if needed. Our server , Jake, was excellent. He was extremely attentive... More
