Food was excellent. Great lobster pasta. Good change of pace from what is in Orleans. I liked it a lot.

Very nice atmosphere....our waitress was nice but flow of the meal was terrible....about 45 minutes for our appetizers to come.....steamed clams were tasty in a savory broth, but the honey and ricotta was underwhelming. Main course was another 45 minutes later. Scallops were nice with the risotto...my dining companions has salad with steak and chicken. The steak salad was adequate the chicken was inedible (not cleaned chicken breasts, but instead - 3 large chunks of chicken not presented in a pleasing manner at all). Waitress apologized at the end of the meal....comped us for the chicken meal. Didn't even offer us the desert menu.

We went here for a small anniversary dinner with family on a Monday night. We called ahead and were told that there would be an hour wait for a table for 6 plus a 9 month old baby. When we arrived less than a half hour later, they were able to accommodate us except for a highchair - they apparently only have one available and it was in use (perhaps the reason for the 1 hour wait?).

The food was excellent - my husband said the seafood fra diavolo was the best he's ever tasted (and he tends to order it almost everywhere). The service was also very good. Everyone enjoyed their entrees, which included the grilled shrimp and polenta, lobster pasta and curried sole. The grilled vegetables with the shrimp and polenta were incredible.

I would not recommend this for young families though, unless the children are very well behaved. While they do not discourage families, the lack of highchairs make it seem like they want to encourage a more adult environment.

Looking for a great night out for dining ? This is the place. We all enjoyed different entrees that were outstanding. The service was great and the atmosphere was perfect.

No wait tonight, and we both enjoyed excellent meals quickly prepared. Tables have nice cloth settings, and the atmosphere is elegant and fresh.

The seafood fra diavlo is a very special pasta seafood dish, because fresh tasty seafood was very much the prime ingredient (usually these things have more pasta and sauce than seafood!) Large portions of four kinds of succulent fresh seafood were supported, by perfectly cooked pasta, and a sauce with precisely the right strength of spiciness to complement, without overshadowing the subtle seafood flavors.

The duck was wonderfully tasty and exceptionally tender, with an excellent orange sauce. The recommended pinot noir had more intrigue and depth than most, and the service was very efficient. It even included Jen cheerfully hunting me down in the car park with the light jacket I left behind!
