We wanted to try something out of the way and romantic and after surfing the net we found this tucked away spot in a quiet neighborhood. Upon entering we discovered a secluded garden with fountain. Perfect !!!
The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The menu creative and adventurous. The service was elegant and discrete.
We tried several appetizers, all were outstanding. My partner had the jumbo crab cake with a creamy succotash and some sort of exotic peppers from the Amazon. She loved it. I had the Murray's chicken which was the best chicken I have ever eaten.
We skipped on dessert though there were several items which were tempting. We'll save it for next time.

We came here with high expectations given the TA rating and specific reviews. We had a very early reservation on a Saturday evening, and were very surprised that when we left at around 7 PM there were no diners in the restaurant and just one outside table occupied. Hmmm.

We had a very helpful, affable waiter. The smokey martinis with blue-cheese stuffed olives were very good as described by others. We had the ahi tuna and Chilean sea bass entrees. They were both very good, but not memorable in the least.

Overall we have nothing negative to say about our dining experience. We would probably return. But if you are looking for an extraordinary experience I would suggest you try some other options.

My husband and I had date night here the other night. The decor is elegant but quirky. I like fine dining restaurants that don't feel stuffy and that's what you get here. The service was fantastic . Our server was so knowledgable about the menu and the wine selection. My husband had the lobster bisque for appetizer and that was delicious. I had the stuffed dates... Also Amazing. He ordered a Chilean sea bass special where I ordered the crab cake off the menu. Everything was fantastic. I would love to return and highly recommend it!

We had an outstanding dinner on a Saturday night. We shared calamari in a sweet Thai chili aioli. Perfectly lightly fried and the sauce was delicious with just the correct chili flavor without being overwhelming. The portion is not large, actually just right for two people to start because the main course is a good size serving.

My husband ate Indonesian spiced wild caught shrimp served with coconut rice and a delicious blend of vegetables using a wonderful blend of herbs and spices such as lemon grass, cumin, ginger, shallots, garlic, cilantro and more. The fresh shrimp were very large, some so huge they were a mouthful. Shrimp is always best when it's wild caught.

I had the Garam Masala rubbed Ahi Tuna served with black rice, pear slaw, curried mango chutney raita and some other ingredients. I have never seen so huge servings of tuna from any restaurant in S. Florida (and I've chosen tuna at many). Both dishes superb. Max our server was great. BTW, I drank a smoky martini consisting of vodka, Glenmorangie scotch served with blue cheese stuffed green olives. One of the best mixed drinks anywhere. For dessert we shared a lychee sorbet. Perfect conclusion to a dinner and our hope to return to dine again in the near future. See my attached photos.

It's amazing, I have nothing negative to say. Service and more service. From the moment you enter till you leave. Full bar. Food was delicious. different, and well presented. My martini was right on. Crab cake was crab meat not fillers. Calamaria was oh so tender and the sauce was not typical but good. Miss Lily is a good hostess. I chatted with her about her coy in the pond, she is very knowledgeable about the fish. I topped it off with creme bruille, it was awesome. If you'd like a quiet, special night this is the place.
