I have heard so much about this restaurant that we finally tried it out last week. My grilled fish and shrimp was tasty and fresh. My wife had crab cakes and she enjoyed them but she said they were rich and she would not want more than one. The food was good but not fantastic to me. The cold beer... More

We had a great meal with great service. Tried a few new things. really enjoyed the meal. The only downside is there is really not much for kids to choose from. Other than that would highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was excellent. Among our table we had lasagna, goat cheese ravioli, pork shank, and the crab cake. Everything was really good. The pork shank tasted a bit past its freshness peak, but nothing worth docking the score. I realize the struggles a restaurant goes through when serving braised meats that must be prepared long before the order is... More

We have been eating at this restaurant since it 1st opened on the Island. It has been a favorite & has always delivered a pleasant experience ... until now. Initial order of crab cakes was delivered burnt. Refire took over an hour. Drinks were ordered but never delivered. Seeking a new favorite restaurant on the island.

The flavors were well developed and the drink list is a small tome! Lots of options! We had a lemon tart for dessert that was the perfect finish to a nice evening.

The fresh fish was absolutely cooked perfectly. I had not had that for years in a restaurent.. . Jessica the waitress. was great. very personable and efficient. managing guests and the bar, too. I loved the atmosphere and if I lived near I would be there at least weekly even if I had to drive a ways.

Enjoyed the quaint setting and décor. The service was very good. The server helped us understand the menu and serving sizes and the ingredients. 2 of us had a Bloody Mary which was very tasty. The food was yummy! We will definitely be back.

I visit this restaurant every year and always order the crab cake at least once. It is served on a bed of greens with remoulade sauce. The tapas menu is fabulous. Always tough to choose.

We really enjoyed this restaurant! The menu was adventurous, but the picks we made were very tasty. Delicious! The fried tomatoes with goat cheese balls, crab cakes, fish tacos and shrimp skewers were very good. Even the cheeseburgers that my kid eat were super tasty. My kids also tried all the appetizers and food and they loved! The service was... More
