Everything about this restaurant was great! Our table shared 3 different appetizers (stuffed mushrooms, coconut shrimp, bacon wrapped shrimp). All 3 were delicious! Meals were excellent. We both ordered filets. They were tender, flavorful, and perfectly prepared. Others in our group opted for seafood. Everyone...More

Great place for lunch. I had the crusted tilapa. It was so flaky and no fishy taste. The deserts are out of this world. I had the upside-down apple pie which was warmed with cinamon ice cream. Try it and you will not be disappointed.

Courteous and attentive staff, foods were very tasty, small portions, and quite pricey. Ambience was respectful & formal yet unexpectedly noisy. The lighting was extremely dark making it difficult to even read menu. However overall it was a pleasant experience with friends.

Go to the restaurant's full website. That being said, daily catches change, but you will get the flavor for the offerings.
