“The Cobb salad is excellent!”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

I've been there twice in two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed dining on the patio. The Cobb salad is nicely presented and very good.

“Really good food..what happened to the service?”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Had 7pm reservations for 6 people.
Arrived 6.50pm. There were 4 women/girls hostesses at receiving area. Gave our name and reservation time and told to go wait in bar because our table wouldn't be ready until 7.00pm. Fair enough.
Ordered a drink at bar and then waited for table to be ready although inside where we wanted to sit was virtually empty.
At 7.10 one of the hostesses came and said we could sit. Sat us in a corner table. To cut a very long story short our waiter did not have a clue! There were many waiters and waitresses. All seemed rushed off their feet.
We all had full cocktails from our time at the bar and first thing waiter said was. "Can I bring you a cocktail??" We indicated we had drinks and he left us appearing most perplexed!
20 minutes later he came back and we had to ask for menus, water, bread.
Food was excellent. We all ordered entrees and one ordered a salad. His salad came and was delicious then the waiter brought another salad to him.. He indicated he had already eaten his salad and then lo and behold another salad came on offer!
After about 5 minutes several servers turned up with food that was not ours and they had no idea where it was supposed to go.
Then our food came with another group of servers who proceeded to give everyone the wrong entree. I can only say that the food was delicious and the staff and the front desk have absolutely no clue what they are doing.

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

Visited this restaurant for dinner twice - and both times food and service were great. It's busy season here, but both times we were able to get a good table at 7:30. We love that the entrees are not pre-prepared. Try the veal marsala! Leave room for dessert and pick up your breakfast while there. (yes, carbs - but worth it!)
