“Beautiful Courtyard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

A beautiful spot in the middle of downtown Ft Myers. We ate in the gorgeous and relaxing courtyard that I highly recommend. Our server Tim, was perfect, attentive but not overbearing. Dinners were delicious and there was not one complaint from the four of us. After dinner we enjoyed the piano player in the bar. I would recommend going early or staying later to enjoy him. It is a perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. It is a classy, beautiful place that I will definitely go back to again!

“Delicious”

Dined here multiple times, each time is wonderful and delicious. Definitely order the caesar salad! The Filet Mignon is delicious as well. Make sure you try the pepper jelly with the bread!

“Don't want business”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Called today to make reservations for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The young woman who answered the phone was rude at best, put me on hold and never came back. After waiting 10 minutes I called and made reservations elsewhere. They apparently don't need the business and I don't have to eat there

“Great place Downtown, Fort Myers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This place is really an old house that was made into a restaurant. It has a courtyard in the back with a wonderful fish pond and tropical flowers all over the place. The food is really good and the atmosphere can't be beat.
