Our family of four arrived on a Wednesday evening to find a friendly staff offering us a table indoors or out. We loved our table in one of the small, intimate rooms. As a vegan, I wanted a special meal and the chef produced the best dish I could have asked for, consisting of delicious vegetables, even unusual ones such as fennel and beets. My husband declared his halibut the best ever. Daughter's spicy seafood dish has been talked about for days. Lastedly, a chicken piccata was an excellent example of a standard. Our server Casey was a charmer, extremely helpful and accommodating. Thanks to all at this exceptional, highly recommended restaurant. Don't miss it.

Thank Genna W

We discovered this place by accident while wandering around St. Augustine's historic district, and decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. We had the special of the day- lamb chops with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables, and washed it down with a glass of sangria. Pricey, but very good.

We ended up here for our anniversary dinner after another restaurant "lost" our reservation. It was a nice surprise... Interesting menu, the food was excellent and it had a cozy atmosphere. The service was a little slow but we understood as it was our server's first day. The parking lot is hard to find, you must drive completely around the back of the building through a dirt parking lot but once we found it, we had a lovely meal. I would go back.

My daughter and I found this place and just went in. The ceasar salad was the best I have ever had and the chef makes his own dressing. I had a special of the day ,a seafood pasta which was filled with lobster,shrimp,clams and scallops over fettuccine in an amazing cream sauce. Great service and atmosphere.

We were a large group that grew beyond our reservation, we were in a private room, so we did not disturb the other customers
The wait staff easily accommodated our additional guests
The service was excellent and patient with our large lively group
We ordered a pasta dish and bruschetta as appetizers, both delicious. Dinners ordered included seafood, light, fresh and tasty;
pastas and vegetable meals also delicious. Nice wine selection, and the waiter was knowledgable.
