Went with my significant other to a late-ish dinner on a Sunday evening because he could not, would not stop talking about this restaurant and the last time he ate there. The food was delicious, and the service phenomenal.

I loved the food and service too; however, I wish the staff had given us the option to sit out on the patio. It was a beautiful evening and I would've much rather sat outside. It would be much more romantic and less noise.

Came here for a wedding. The food we were served was the same as we noticed on the menu. We started with the She Crab soup - delicious. Then came the Lobster - 3 way appetizer - sooo good (I could have this all day!!). For dinner I had the Strip Steak - cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth... More

Food was good, but not worth the price. Service was very good and staff was friendly and helpful. Would not go back.

Food was delicious and well presented. The service was prompt, courteous and competent, but a bit impersonal. It may have been the "distance" factor of some upscale places; the servers did not engage, even when encouraged. But we're people who rarely meet a stranger and often the clientele in restaurants of this type are primarily there to be seen and... More

Wonderful dinner outside on the patio. Started with a drink in the great bar. Nice selection but pricey. We all had appetizers which were excellent and ended up splitting the famous Coconut cake(huge) and delicious.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant, the hospitality was undeniable. The Maître d was very courteous and seated us promptly for our reservation. Our waiter (Lemont) was only a moment behind presenting us with menus and the wine/cocktail list. We ordered a drink and browsed the menu while we waited, which was not for long at all. If... More

Fantastic dinner for two. For starters we had oysters and a lump crab soup. Both were delicious. For the main course we had trout and grouper on a bed of vegetables and a side dish of mashed potatoes with leek. A wonderful dinner! To top it all off, a fantastic coconut cake as desert. Both the food and service were... More

Wonderful. Stop & enjoy the bar at the entrance - if Cory is working you will enjoy an excellent & welcoming experience to this restaurant. Of course, the coconut cake is a must.
