“Nice Find!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

I actually like this place. While we were walking around the promenade we came across this place inside the mall. Lucky we did as the food was actually quite good, so is the service. Would definitely come back again when I'm in town.

“Taking healthy eating to an extraordinarily tasty level.”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Wow. What a wonderful meal. Everything from hostess to waitress to meal to cleanliness was exceptional. I wish we could get dining like this in Orlando Florida!

“Great”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

Great food, tasted really well. We had the Asian food (chicken teryaki and curry) and it was one of the best ever.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
Very affordable.
A place to go.

“Eclectic, healthy and delicious”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

This was an outstanding experience! I took my nephew and his girlfriend to dinner here at their recommendation and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There were many interesting items on the menu and I had the Strawberry rhubarb lemonade which was delicious. Exceptionally clean, pleasing surroundings and our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about every item on the menu - as I must admit there were some items which I had never heard of!

“Great salads and fish in energetic, contemporary setting”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We enjoyed our fresh and healthy food: sardine appetizer with tender arugula; Mediterranean salad with grilled salmon; fish tacos. Sat at the roomy, comfortable and busy bar while we waited for a table. Outdoor patio seating with heaters provided great atmosphere, although indoors and the bar was nice, too. Liked contemporary feel. Staff was friendly and upbeat; service attentive. Parking garage next door was convenient. A bit of a chain restaurant feel, but we were so glad to have simple, tasty food that it was overlooked. We spent about $100 for two including drinks. We recommend.
