My husband and I love this place and the food is fabulous, but this experience was not a good one. We wanted a quiet meal and the waitress sat us around a bunch of children who were not well behaved. Our waitress was rude and agitated. We ended up taking our food to go. When we were leaving I attempted to tell the hostess and she apologized and blew me off.

Great food and cocktails. This is one of our favorite go to places. It was slightly noisy due to some social distancing. This was the exception rather than the rule.

We had such a wonderful lunch on the patio. The hostess did a nice job accommodating our party. We ordered multiple drinks off the the specialty drink list and each one was phenomenal; they have a talented bartender. Hubby had the shellfish chowder which blew us away.. parents and i had the crab bisque (special) and it was excellent. Lunch entrees were generous portions and very well executed. We were beyond pleased. Carol was our server and she timed everything perfectly. Our water glasses were never empty and as soon as our cocktails were low she would check in. Couldn’t have had a better experience - thank you!

The dining room was very cramped. We were seated in a high traffic corner. The service was not attentive, and the food was ok, a step above bar food.

Our food was great. Our server was excellent. The front desk hostess and a few other staff were rather rude. We checked in about 10-15 minutes early for our reservation. There was some confusion about the name our reservation was under. Instead of letting us know that we could have a seat outside or somewhere else, they just stared at us. A simple, “we have you check in and will let you know when a table is ready” would have been excellent communication. Instead, we were stared at then eventually told, “please move out of the way”. We saw multiple parties come in 10-15 and even 30 minutes late for their reservation time and seated right away. We were eventually seated a bit after our reservation time. The food here is great but every time I’ve been, there has been at least 1 person who is rather rude.
