Wednesday evening dining with a few friends; dined inside as evening was stormy; quiet time; overall good food and service; too many specials, provided verbally by server, to fully comprehend/remember.

We visited for a special occasion having heard wonderful things about the restaurant. We were not disappointed but it was very loud and we couldn't hear the waitress as she explained the specials. We asked if they were written down and she said, "No, just in my head." We may have missed something. My only complaint besides the acoustics was... More

Met with previous work colleagues for lunch. There were at least 15 or more people. The staff was excellent, providing individual bills. The lunch was excellent, many choices of soups and salads. Basic salads available and could add chicken or shrimp. Probably as many different orders as people. Everyone pleased.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in St. Paul. It never disappoints. Sat in the bar and our server Zee was great! Had our usual capasante which is always a must. Tried a new summer shrimp salad that was fabulous. Good for casual night, or a fancier night out.

We stopped here one evening, a bit unplanned, and were blown away with the fantastic food! It was a lobster sauce, and to die for. The outdoor patio is also a beautiful place to relax and enjoy a MN summer. We cant wait to go back!

We visited here for our wedding anniversary and it was really a mixed bag experience. We ordered a bottle of wine in the bar since we were 45 mins early for our dinner reservation. The place was already packed at 6:15 on a Saturday night. Very crowded in the bar and dining area. We enjoyed our wine at the bar... More
