We had one night in St Augustine, and I called a few days before for a reservation after reading the great reviews. They were booked, but I asked them to put me on the cancellation list. EW couldn't make the 630 cancellation due to short notice, but they had another one at 8, and they were able to squeeze us in. We had to wait about 20 minutes, but only because we asked for another table due to a very jovial, loud (read: drunk) group in the front dining room celebrating a birthday.
We were seated in the center table of the "main" dining room, which only has about 8 tables. The service was straight-forward without being too attentive, absolutely no complaints. I had strawberry salad to start- light and fresh, followed the coconut crusted red snapper on basmati rice with grilled julienned veggies. It was perfectly cooked, and the portion was right-sized. I could have eaten two, but then I would have been way too full. My partner opened with the goat cheese mousse (two thumbs up) and the shrimp and scallop pasta dish in a porcini mushroom crème sauce. He reported that it was not too heavy, well-balanced, and the seafood was not overcooked, which is always a concern with shellfish.
Nice setting, the staff went out of their way to fit us in, convivial atmosphere. Highly recommended.
