Very pleasant, very efficient, and the food is top-notch. Our Sole/blue crab and Halibut/lobster dishes were excellent. Tucked away from downtown, this restaurant is an eating gem. Every time we have eaten here [winter as well] the food has been remarkable.

Awesome food! Excellent tapas menu and excellent swordfish! I had my meal at the bar. It was a training shift for Al behind the bar. If he hadn't told me, I would have never guessed. If you're away from home for any reason, work (like...More

The food was delicious with good presentation. The service was friendly and responsive, and the price was reasonable. Would highly recommend and will definitely return. New ownership of the restaurant has made a wonderful difference.
