    We loved the ambience to celebrate our Anniversary!! Everything was excellent, only thoughts would be if you'd like the Halibut request that it be cooked delicately.

    We had a wonderful time and meal. Our server Alex was excellent. We initially requested to sit outside on patio. We were celebrating an anniversary. It was very nice and quiet until an obnoxious loud group arrived acting as though they were the only party there. One lady stood beside our table before sitting down with her large rear end in our faces for an extended amount of time. It was rude to say the least. Our server recognized that we were very uncomfortable and this wasn’t the anniversary celebration that we were looking for. We asked to move inside. We were disappointed to not be able to enjoy the lovely outdoor patio but the inside was lovely and quiet. Our food was wonderful and so was our server

    Food was heavily over salted, very disappointing. Both of our dishes, not one.

    Great waitress, great food. Eat outside which was lovely. Enjoy the tuna tartar and a few of the specials. The peaches and cream bread pudding was awesome.

    Our waitress- (Gina the Great) attended our table with here recommendations for dinner that are always spot on. Her recommendation for the peach bread pudding was just to good to describe! She would occasionally stop bye and always asked how our meal was? Very attentative and helpful, even with her had leg.
