Atmosphere was cozy, dimmed lighting with music playing in the background. Even though it was not my taste in music, you could still have a conversation across the table and not have to strain to hear them. Dinner was delicious -the asparagus appetizer was a nice starter along with the bottled mineral water. I don’t normally like mineral water but this one was refreshing and easy on the bubbles. It was so good, I ordered another bottle! The petite filet was cooked perfectly and super tender. I asked for some of the butter sauce that they seasoned it with on the side for dipping. Double the flavor! Yumm! They do have kid food. Just ask. My son order the chicken strips and fries. He enjoyed it too. The waitress was helpful in the selections and knew the menu well. I will definitely go back!

We had dinner our last night here, each thoroughly enjoying the salmon dinner. Be sure to order the asparagus fries appetizer—delicious. The butter cake dessert was exceptionally good. Great place for conversation and cool vibe as well. Close to all the downtown/beach areas.

Over 2 hr wait after being told 45 min and then we get the food and mine was horrible . :( The filet mignon tasted like it was a spoiled cut. FYI: it’s a super small location! Great staff though.

What a great place to be. Worth the wait! Good choice of dishes. We sat in the neighborhood of the kitchen. Had a good view of dishes going into the restaurant. We had raw tuna salad! Excellent!

Great location and atmosphere. Excellent service from the waitstaff, my coffee cup never emptied! Chicken and waffles were very good, maybe a little well done but tasted delicious anyway.
