Best experience of dining out that we have experienced in the US so far. I phoned ahead as I am gluten free and was assured that there would be plenty of options for me. There certainly were. I have never had so many options on a menu. From the welcome we received on entering the restaurant, to the knowledgeable waiting staff, nothing was too much trouble. I had the portobello mushrooms for a starter, the surf and turf for main and flourless chocolate torte for dessert. My husband had the calamari which looked amazing, but I too was offered this if I wanted it just fried. This is customer service at its best. I usually am offered few options and a take it or leave it attitude from staff. All dishes well presented and definitely fresh. Will definitely return as for once there are so many more options for me to try!

So so nice of you to write such a detailed and kind review.

You inspired us to make a special page on our website for Gluten Free diners, just to make sure we're clear as to what we can do. (we used your testimonial as well).

Thanks again, be well and we look forward to dining with you again!

Recently received takeout order (contactless pick up) for a patio 60th birthday dinner. The food was fresh, prepared exquisitely and deliciously and Chef Tony was so accommodating. we had softshell crabs and they were the best! Highly recommend this gem for dinner. It was my first time getting takeout and I feel so very safe and it was such a treat!

There is one table outside in the bright sun. It was worth it. They should get an umbrella however. All the seafood was fantastic as well as good prices on yummy white wine to accompany the dinner. The server was very helpful with his suggestions. We will return.

I had the Crab soup, it was good but had a little too much old bay seasoning. The filet mignon satay was delish! Grilled shrimp was also great! The fried calamari was crispy, fresh and melts in your mouth! I’d probably ad more breading, but that’s me. The crepe brûlée was good as well. The owners even sent me a follow up email the next day! What a great place in local Bethesda Maryland

Good food but not best service.
Easy parking
In appetizer Cesar salad and mushroom salad were really good.
In main course chicken piccata was the best.
In dessert bread pudding was our favorite!

As for service our waitress got us food but never came back to check on us. She walked by many times but never stopped to ask if we need anything like water or fork or napkin etc.
