    Excellent restaurant and location. Too bad the weather was rainy, otherwise we would have sat outside. Chocolate martinis and seafood eggs benedict was absolutely delicious. Our waitress was fantastic too! I will be back!

    Food was excellent although they had run out of seafood for the seafood Benedict. Food arrived but no silverware. Sides ordered came late after reminding our server we had ordered them.

    STAY AWAY! Such a disappointment (except for the cocktail) All of the food was served cold. The female manager threw the chef under the bus. All excuses. No solutions. I will not go back.
