Delightful upscale dining in an intimate historic downtown setting, almost more like a private club. Best place to go for holiday dinners and celebrations. If Fort Myers had a Commander's Palace, this would be it.

We had excellent service and excellent food. The atmosphere is nice and quiet. I ordered rack of lamb rare, and it came rare. It was one of the best rack of lambs I've eaten. My wife had pompano, a fish we hadn't had before. It was well prepared.

I drove past this place every day for six months before I ever even noticed it, and then once We visited, we loved it so much, we got married in the courtyard! We've only had lunch there (too broke for dinner), but it's such a beautiful atmosphere, and the staff is great!
By the way, the Koi Fish in the courtyard love to eat crackers-- if you get some with your soup, make sure to share!
