I had the Shrimp Po Boy with a pasta salad, my friend had the Panini. Both were excellent, portions were generous. The waitress was very attentive. We had dinner at this place on several occasions, always delices. First time for lunch, but will definitely return.

Amazing cuisine and even better service. We had a business dinner with visiting clients and enjoyed Chefs specials for the evening. Surf(scallops) and Turf(filet) for me and Corvina fish special for my wife. Great atmosphere, highly recommend.

Yes, the place is tucked away, smaller than most and reservations are probably a good idea. We walked in early in the evening and were served very quickly, though. I love finding a place that makes my taste buds say, “Wow!” and savor each bite....More
