“Just ok...does not live up to hype”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We literally were seated right away, which is nice. So many places require reservation and still make you wait for your table. Wait staff was pleasant. The Sangria was good. Food was very slow, but I am sure it is part of the "experience".---You know, good food takes time, enjoy your company, etc. But it was very, very, slow. Which would have been fine, if the food was divine! It took so long to get our appetizer that we thought they forgot. We had their version of nachos/queso(?), a plate with literally 10 chips (they were fresh) and a small ramikin of chili (maybe 4 oz), topped with a white gourmet type cheese. I thought maybe there was a mistake. NO, this was their version. Ok, fine. I understand not filling up on appetizers, but let me be the judge of that. Not the kitchen. So we waited and waited and waited. I had steak and frites. The steak was edible, but not delectible. The frites were quite good though...seasoned, some flaked cheese (just enough) and rosemary, of all things. That was a nice suprise. My spouse had free range fried chicken. It was tender, juicy, but zero taste. Really bland. I didn't even taste salt, or pepper, very basic spices that can do wonders. We left feeling unsatisfied, knowing we would not be going back.

“Another Incredible Meal”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Tough menu choices because they are all so good. Opted for lobster sliders and scallop risotto entree- perfect presentation accompanied by attentive service.

“Good food, very slow - not for a quick dinner!”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Food was good, the fish was cooked just right (not overcooked like so many places). Nice cozy atmosphere and the waitress was very good. But oh,so slow!!! Even the bread came out slow - and we were hungy! We were meeting up with old friends and the purpose of the evening was to catch up, so it was fine. But if we'd been just a couple at the end of a long day being tourists it would have been painfully slow. Go here to linger. Wonderful atmosphere for that.

Menu is small but covers the bases. I have a beef with menus that say "market price"and the wait staff don't tell you what it is. It's easy enough to say "fish specialis ... at $28.95."

“Fresh and flavorfull!”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

my favorite place for fresh delicious food. Not the place where you just get served food to eat that taste like every other place
