Went there with my wife before seeing Wicked at Chrysler Hall. Friday nights are Game Night and they had an Ostrich Steak and a Gator Linguine. My wife went with the Gator while I debated between the Lobster and the Filet Mignon, finally deciding on the steak.

Her meal was excellent, served with a Tequila Lime Habenero sauce. My filet mignon was kind of standard fare, served with a nice peppercorn sauce but nothing memorable. Of course I'm near the point of abandoning steaks at restaurants cause I can do them better at home.

The atmosphere was nice (we went there kind of early at 6pm) and the wait staff was good.

Average entrees were in the low $20s.

My wife would give this 4 or 5 stars, and maybe next time I go it'll get bumped up as I try something different.

This is definately a place to check out if you are ever in Norfolk Virginia. It used to be an old church and was converted to a restaurant. Within walking distance of Nauticus and The Battleship Wisconsin (tourist attractions). Excellent food and service.

Atmosphere very nice, service very good, food is on pricey side
however that is because the quality dictates that
the broiled seafood platter for $22 is to die for
the ribs for $16 also very good
on monday nights they have 2 for $20 thats affordable
also specials on other nights
