Food was great as well as atmosphere. Hidden gem! We were luck enough to get a table by the window with a view of the water. Will go back again.

Wonderful experience once again! The food was superb, especially the shrimp scampi and portabello mushroom ravioli. Fun having the Caesar salad made right at our table and the chocolate cake was AMAZING. So nice to see Larry and Sandy too!

Husband and I went last night in pursuit of tableside Caesar salad. Wonderfully created by Larry. Used real anchovies and all the rest from the original recipe. It was heaven. I tried not to moan while I was eating it. This is a hard act...More
