Atmosphere, service was excellent. Food was average and very over priced. Also, very pretencess. Not what I was looking for. Nothing on their menu really got me excited. Wouldn't go again.

Just finished a fun lunch. Food was very good, service from Andrea was excellent. Really enjoyed sitting out front and watch the people go by. St. Armands Circle is always a fun outing.
