Food was good, however, my husband didn't love his seafood pasta, my parm halibut was nice. The menu on here is outdated, there has been a significant price increase. Staff was wonderful.

Reviewed 15 December 2017

Small place offers casual almost bar-like atmosphere which appeared to be wrapped around bar in middle. Layout was a little strange. We sat on indoor/outdoor patio, which was a little cool, but not terribly, on a little table which appeared to be almost an afterthought....More
