Whether you sit at the bar or at a hightop in the bar area, the atmosphere is casual and friendly, the wait staff is pleasant and attentive and the food is consistently delicious. The portions are generous...chicken francaise can definitely be split...and soup or salad are included. Their three onion soup is delicious,,,just soup without all the melted gruyere on top, so not a French Onion Soup, which is a nice change and much lighter. Dana is in the kitchen, but also in the bar area checking on people's dinners, thanking people for coming in, and just generally being a gracious host. One thing that is very important to us is that the food is hot and at Dana's the food always comes out piping hot. The wait staff use a team approach so the food comes out when it's ready, not when the server has time to pick it up. I love the Shrimp and Lobster South Beach..delicious and light with Broccoli Rabe for just a little tart flavor. Dana changes the menu occasionally and they have specials as well that are very reasonably priced and delicious. We go frequently because it is local and we love the food...We call it our "CHEERS".
