Extraordinarily good food. The carrot soup was exceptionally good. The king salmon was perfectly done--moist, delicate, flavorful. Good service. As the name says, the art on the walls isn't nearly as interesting as the meal.

If you want gourmet food, a different experience from the chains, something a little funky, and smart casual go here. We r vegetarian and there are great options. In fact after eating here a few times the owner told us to call 24 hrs ahead and he would buy and prepare something new and different for us! Is that not good service. Most unusual for a this town and a welcome addition.

In St. Joe for business this week. Found this little gem in the middle of a sad and lonely downtown area - hard hit by hard times. I'm not sure how this place survives, given the lack of traffic, but the food was excellent! We had a selection of small plates - including the duck dim sum dumplings, haricot verts, pommes frites, sweet plantain cakes, summer rolls, and salads. All of the food was fresh, presented beautifully, and incredibly tasty. The menu included a variety of meats and fishes, as well as some Asian-influenced dishes. Service was very good. The art was, as promised, bad! Quite kitschy and really fun to look at! The only drawback was a musty smell in the dining room.

I have eaten at many great restaurants in different countries around the world, which are known for their great cuisine such as France, India, Brazil, Italy and Japan.The quality of the food and service at this restaurant is something you get on a gourmet restaurant in a major city. I also liked the atmosphere and the wine list.
I highly recommend it.
