My husband and I made reservations for Valentine's Day at this restaurant and were beyond impressed. Definitely a 5-star restaurant yet with the casualness we enjoy. They offered a fix menu on this particular holiday, quite understandable due to the volume of reservations I'm sure they accommodated. We weren't aware of this when the reservations were made and upon our arrival weren't certain if we would happy having no say so about our dinner choices, however, every course was outstanding and no corners were cut. An option of wine pairing with each course was offered, which we decided to partake in never having done it before and were in awe. The restaurant is very intimate feeling, quite relaxing and tastily decorated. We have been there on previous occasions to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries but we both felt they out did themselves for the Valentine Dinner.

“Can anyone say pretentious?”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Not at all what we expected. We thought we were going into a Florida seafood restaurant, instead we found a small-town theater act with people playing at being an exclusive high-end restaurant. Sorry if that seems harsh, but we loved the food, felt the chef cared, but everything about it was so fake and disingenuous that we really had to leave as soon as we were done. What the place really needs is a good outside consultant to recreate the atmosphere.
Average rating for the food, one-star for the atmosphere.

“I'm particular and the fat snook is for real”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

Found this on trip advisor and confirmed through other reviews. We travel and know a good restaurant when we find it... Especially with 4 kids in tow. While not a kid restaurant per se, the kitchen accommodated young palates with fresh pasta and chicken. Meanwhile, the adults enjoyed sophisticated Thai inspired and Florida fresh seafood. I don't care where you are from or what you claim to have enjoyed in the past... This is a great place.

“Tasty Treat”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Terrific food - nicely prepared and presented fish....the wait staff seemed a little pretentious with the descriptions, but certainly enthusiastic...and the food lived up to the menu sales pitch
