“Classy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is a "big night out" restaurant complete with a piano bar to wind up the night, after dinner drink in hand, singing "set em up, Joe"...
Food and service is first class with prices to match. Worth every penny.

“Fabulous Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

The absolute best service in Ft. Myers. The food is wonderful and you want for nothing. I have eaten lunch there on many occasions, but this was the first time we went for dinner and it blew away our expectations. The best dining experience!

“Beautiful Courtyard”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
