We have been going to this restaurant since the day it opened. The prices are going up and up and the quality of the food is changing. My husband had sea bass that was good buy over the top in price. The owner chef no longer cooks and maybe that is it. He cruises the tables but that does not help with the food taste. Last time I had mussels with white sauce, almost my favorite dish. They put in the spice i asked for and that was the only flavor besides the huge amount of parsley they put in that I did not even notice since much was in the mussels. I dislike parsley and have never had it loaded in any dish. I mentioned it to Joe the owner and he said, " remember to mention it the next time". There will not be a next time. Cindy

We ate in the courtyard and had a great meal. The food was great, wine was good, service was excellent, and the courtyard was lush and inviting.

The table next to us was a family with lots of kids, so I would say that it is very family friendly, even though we didn't take our kids there.

Overall, a good experience. I would dine there again.

Thoroughly enjoyed this friendly, homely little restaurant. Food was fresh and of decent sized portions. A hidden gem that if i returned to Aiken, i would definately go back.

My husband saw this little restaurant and was excited to take me there. It was a quaint little place and once I got past the seafood smell at the door I was excited. The table across from us was finished eating and drinking and was very loud. I ordered the chicken,pasta and a salad. I asked the waitress if it came with a vegetable and she said" just a salad." The salad was lettuce and croutons with bland dressing. The chicken was over cooked and looked like it was dipped in oil. It had too much pepper and salt and tasted like seafood had somehow been exposed to it. Actually it did come with broccoli which was a surprise since I was told no vegetable except salad. Too bad I cannot eat it which is why I asked. Pasta was average. I told the waitress that the chicken was gross and tasted like seafood. She just walked away and did not return until she brought our check then said"can I get you something else" I laughed and said not now we are leaving. My husbands pasta dish was about average. Since the manager and the staff doesn't care if you can eat your food I would not recommend this place. Grade D
