We had a family dinner there with small kids and grandparents. Everybody's dishes were very good and the staff was super fast and helpful with their recommendations. There is a need to make a reservations! For some reason they don't like walk-ins!

Had dinner here with a party of 10 and the service and food were excellent. We had our own little private room. The filet was delicious and no one had a complaint about their food. One did, however have to ask for more liquor in their drink and the waiter obliged no problem. It is a quaint, small restaurant on a very quiet residential road. Definitely worth the cab ride!

Great location. Nice outdoor space with a fountain. Excellent service and helpful wait staff. We ate here Christmas Eve and it was very busy but the service was still great. Started with the spicy shrimp bisque which was excellent. Not too heavy and just spicy enough with really unique flavors. My husband and daughter both had the filet al forno. Excellent flavors but slightly over cooked (we ordered it med rare and it was at least medium if not more). I had the snapper meunière and in my opinion it was the best entree of the evening. Perfectly cooked and excellent flavors. We also tried the meatloaf which was excellent. Great cocktails. We hope to go back again before we leave.

Excellent food. Their meatloaf was delicious and the chocolate lava cake is to die for!
Service was very friendly and professional. We enjoyed our meal and had fun with our waiter.
Reservations are a must. This place gets busy very quickly. Good wine selection.

Was recommended and booked a reservation here a few months ago for a Christmas Eve dinner. Arrived at 530, and the restaurant opened shortly after. The garden setting is lovely, complete with a fountain and small pool. The server, Robert, was extremely knowledgeable and attentive throughout the meal, providing recommendations, explaining local foods, engaging in conversation. Ordered off the daily special menu, as well as the recommended steak( which was one of the best we have ever had anywhere), as well as the local fish( snapper). Of course we tried the award winning key lime pie ( as all key lime pies in Key West are advertised as)... It really was awesome. The food, service and ambiance were outstanding. Amazing!
