“Great meal, great decor, great service, great time”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant has four separate - and distinctly decorated - dining areas. In order to avoid the wait my friend and I ate at the bar-like seats near the entrance. Dinner began with friendly service and a delicious goat cheese/cream cheese herb spread served with flatbread or crackers - a delicious variation on the bread basket. I had the seafood in saffron tomato broth - plenty of food, and quite delicious. My friend had the vegetarian salad combination - a large platter with several unique salads. We each had the sangria (which I did not realize had liqueur in it - tasty but a surprise - make sure you read the menu!). The service was friendly and quick. A highlight of our trip!

“Wonderful meal despite the 45 minute wait---in season on the weekend is to be expected---we will definitely be back!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We love the food including the cocktails we ordered while we waited for our table.

We started with the olives and the marcona almonds that were more than enough for the four of us to share. The goat cheese spread with the cheese square crackers were an excellent complement to the two "snacks" that we had ordered off the menu.

Two of us ordered the fish stew which was recommended to us by our server over the crab cakes. It had a delectable saffron/fennel seed(?)broth loaded with clams, mussels, shrimp, fish along with small potatoes, celery and tomatoes.

The hamburger and fries ordered were highly appreciated.

The scallops were done just right, but unfortunately our friend who ordered them does not eat tomatoes and negotiated a swap for the French fries with the hamburger order.

Fingers crossed that our wait will be shorter on our next visit...

“Phenomenal”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

You can't to wrong with the menu - every time we visit, everybody in our party is thrilled with their selections. The crab deviled eggs are outstanding, who knew that deviled eggs could be so exciting. This visit, I had the scallops which were perfect, and the chicken wings are beyond tender - like nowhere else. The main problem is simply getting in - we like to eat on the later side and they only take reservations until 6pm. We had to bail on the 2 hour wait on Friday night however made it in on Saturday night which was well worth the wait! The hostess could have been friendlier however everybody else we encountered during our visit was great!

Exceptional service and food. Just wish they would take reservations throughout the evening, not just for early dining hours.
