“Improved.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

The restaurant was fairly empty when we (3) arrived at 5:00pm on a Sunday afternoon. Bar parons seemed to be enjoying themselves drinking and watching the monitors.

Our server was the same one we had during our last visit. She is OK, but a little off-beat. She made one or two mistakes, but nothing serious.

Today, only one of us had a fish entree - Atlantic Salmon. It was presented well, and tasted as good as it looked. The second entree was Chicken Marsala; it too was also up to expectations. My entree was was the Tournedos of Beef. Although only two pieces, it was plenty. The soup and fantastic salad are really filling. Of course, the "Early Bird" even comes with dessert. Each of us has the spumoni ice cream, which was very tasty.

After being disappointed last time with our fish selections, I am ready to return and try again.

“So Good, We're Coming Back”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Great seafood. Our physically-challenged friend was quickly accomodated. We ordered off the specials of the day (my wife had the Greek-inspired Tilapia and I had the Mahi). Reasonably priced. Salads made to order at your table. A wonderful waiter--very helpful and attentive. The food was delicious. I highly recommend it and we will definitely return.
