I made reservations via open Table and we were seated the moment we walked in. We had a party of 8 that arrived at staggered times, but they were happy to start drinks and appetizers while we waited for the rest of our party.

The dining area and bar area are all one big open area, which makes dining a bit loud, since there was a fundraiser of some sort going on in the bar area.

The food and meal were fabulous. They even accommodated people splitting desserts. The one negative was at 9pm, they turned up the lights as if to say -- ok get out. We werent quite finished, and that seemed rude.

We had lunch here on vacation a few weeks ago. We each had the "Trio", where you can choose 1 item from each of 3 categories for $15. The food was fantastic, and there was a lot of it!
The bread was also amazing, as was the marinara sauce they brought for dipping. Our service was spectacular. We wanted to return for dinner some evening, as well as the live bar entertainment, but unfortunately ran out of time. Next time for sure!

We had reservations for our last night in Florida, after a 2 week vacation. The restaurant was packed and noisy. We noticed that the lounge had great seating around the perimeter and wasn't as busy so we asked to sit there, with no problem.

Just as we sat, the entertainment started and we had GORGEOUS piano and classy voice singing all of the classic jazz/dinner tunes. People were dancing, we were eating and drinking fine wine...it really was a night to remember. The entertainment really was exactly what we were looking for as a late 30's couple and a romantic night out.

The food was delicious - we had mussels that were served in a hot sizzling cast iron pan at our table and a beautiful steak.

A wonderful last night in Florida for us.

Food was great, but the service.... out of this world. I never expected young staff to be so professional. This place has it down!
