“Gluten Free Friendly”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Has been a favorite but first time back since diagnosed with Celiac disease. The waiter and chef went out of their way to alter my first entree choice to eliminate gluten. Had an amazing meal, great table, great service and many gluten free choices. Can't wait to come back!

“Unique food and excellent service”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Widely varied menu. With a business group of 4. Unique furnishings. Everyone got something different and everyone raved. Our waiter did an excellent job. I noticed they had quite a few well priced happy hour specials going on. On the expensive, but in line with its peers. Would highly recommend.

“Great food, Chic spot”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Been coming here for years and it never disappoints. I must say I typically get the same thing every time thus I'm not a connoisseur of the menu. The seared ahi Tuna is delicious and the wasbai whipped potatoes are a great twist! I also get an order of the black rice which almost has a risotto like consistency. The mahi mahi tacos is another item we typically eat as an appetizer, always fresh! Lastly, they make the best Key Lime Pie martini I've ever had in my life.

“Lived Up To Our Expectations!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

My wife and I visited last week and enjoy a wonderful meal in a great restaurant. I had made reservations two weeks earlier through "Open Table" and were warmly received by the staff and immediately escorted to our table by the large front window.
Our server was well informed and offered suggestions, which proved to be of value.
Our appetizers, which were exceptional, consisted of the Chicken Iceberg Wrap, and the Chicken Ginger Wontons.
Our entrees, also exceptional, were the Chicken Pad Tai and the Lobster Rice.
Our dessert was the Vanilla Brulee, exceptional as well.
