“Outstanding Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

On an off weekend the Saturday before Christmas I am extremely impressed with our experience at this restaurant. Not a busy night. However the service and the quality of food was outstanding. Kelly, our server was top of her game. My Martini, Cosmo, was perfect. We chose the Tuna Martini for our appitizer --- impressive! Then from the main course we shared the beef filet and the catch of the day which was red fish! Both dishes were prepared to perfection! This restaurant is a must do for downtown Mobile. Hats off to this service team!

“Delicious and Affordable”

Loved this bistro. The atmosphere was perfect and the food was great. My husband had the chicken panini and I had the steak sandwich. Both were excellent.

fish was actually tough. good location, nice crowd, maybe I just was there on bad night. unfortunatly everyone in our party had the same fish and thought the same thing, so nothing else to compare to. good location near downtown hotels

“Downtown Mobile Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Great little place to eat, especially for small plates and drinks. Lots of outside tables, and fun atmosphere. Service is friendly, but can be a little slow, especially when crowded. I recommend it.

“Great food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is one of Mobile's treasures. It's right on Royal street in the heart of Mobile, AL. It's a quaint little place and really has a lot of spunk to it. On a friday or saturday night, be sure you have reservations or you won't get a table. It's a small place and with the great food and cocktails, it's hard to find a place. You won't regret this place. It's very reasonably priced with large portion sizes. The bartender and cooks are amazing! They've always got something creole on the menu. Great place to have dinner with friends or someone special.
