Had without a doubt the best waiter ever. He got a 25% tip he was so good. The food, filet mignon was perfectly cook and tender. The martini was enough to make me take a cab home. But the memory of Abes will always be the waiter! We had a reunion with an old friend and he allowed us to enjoy our company without interfering. Many thanks....sorry I did get his name (probably due to the martini)!

Celebrated a birthday here. We asked to sit in sidewalk dining for a different experience. We were not disappointed. The cups of Clam Chowder and French Onion Soup were enough and oh so tasty. Our Filet and Sirloin steaks were cooked precisely as we requested. Potatoes au grauten were best I’ve had at a restaurant. The key lime pie…was huge and delightful. We have eaten here now six times over the past several years and we shall again!

First time visit to this restaurant. Expected a quiet, intimate experience in a classic fine-dining environment. The food was good but the restaurant was very loud. Difficult to hear the waiter. Lots of children. A crying baby. Maybe it was just an off night and maybe too many people were anxious to be dining out. But I don't think I'll be rushing back anytime soon.

A very pleasant dining experience! We were greeting with friendly smiles and seated at our cozy booth promptly. Our waiter, Jored, was exceptional! He was extremely competent, very informative about the menu choices and a pleasant presence throughout our meal which was exquisite and perfectly prepared.

Thank you for helping to make our evening celebrating our daughter's graduation such a memorable one....We will be back!
