The staff were extremely pleasant, and service was friendly and prompt. The dinner menu has some out-of-the-ordinary choices, and the food is excellent and creatively presented. The crab-stuffed ravioli with crabcake and the lobster pasta were superb, as was the Caprese salad. A Ceasar salad was only so-so, though. We sat upstairs; it would have been quieter there, but the air conditioner beside our table was rather noisy. However, we were able to turn it off after a while. The chairs upstairs were not very comfortable. The Blue Paddle is maybe a little pricey, but not unreasonable, given the quality of the food. I would absolutely go back again.
