I had the chicken Francese which really had no flavor I needed to add salt which I never do . The service was great but for me it's all about the food which wasn't really good.

All the seafood options, including the special were excellent. Shrimp, tilefish and scallops. Sides are unique and well matched to the main course. Well balanced and generous portions. The martini menu is large and exceptional.

My request to move was granted. I had to ask the waiter to take our order seemed a bit disinterested. However, that was the worst of the evening.... More

Being in the biz, I know what to look for and what to expect. Mike and Richie have it all at this place. Great drinks, great food and a staff to match.
