Wish I had seen reviews about happy hour before going. Food and happy hour were great. Fried green tomatoes were as good as they looked. Drink deals are great. Only problem was meat market of men at bar- to the point that I moved to a table. Not all women eating by themselves are looking to be hooked up. Will definitely go again because food and drinks were awesome but won't sit at bar.

I had been wanting to visit this restaurant for years, and finally got to do so. We had a very nice lunch, but I left there still hungry, as the portions were small of the dish we ordered. For lunch, spending $60 without any drinks, I thought was quite expensive.
I would like to try again at dinnertime to return to see the difference. Others are writing such positive reviews, that I would like to give them other try. Maybe, we just ordered the wrong lunch special?

The quality of the food was wonderful as was the service. It was Mother's Day and the restaurant was busy, but we never felt rushed and the staff took time to check back with us regularly. We will be back again this year.

I like this restaurant. I have absolutely no complaint about the food or service. It's outstanding. The happy hour is one of the very best on the Emerald Coast. It's a high cost restaurant, though, and people should be aware of that before they walk in the door.

What I don't like about this is that the bistro tends to be a "meat market" around happy hour. Lots of local guys trolling for stray wives or other targets of opportunity. I don't know why this is the only fine dining restaurant where the half-man gargoyles turn out for happy hour. But for whatever reason, the low life type guys seem to love this place in the early evening.

Again, the food and service is excellent. It's an outstanding restaurant.
