We dined inside because of the wind and found it very pleasant. The food was excellent. We shared a grand marnier cheese cake for desert and recommend it highly. The staff is very friendly.

Nice option for lunch, with outside seating. They were short handed on wait staff the day we were there, and our server still did an outstanding job serving our needs. We will be back!

Good food could not compensate for Non existent service! Server brought salad after the main
Meal. Understaffed yet not really empathetic.

Enjoyed eating outside on the patio area inside the sidewalk and not on the park-let. Like that there were numerous tables on the Patio. Only our second meal that hasn’t been take-out over this past year. Partially shaded and tables well separated. Though all the tables were occupied, it was a quiet environment. Service and food were up to the usual standards when we have previously dined here over the years. Couldn’t have been happier with our “dining out” experience!

We celebrated our sons birthday here for dinner after baseball. Our Waiter ( he was also the bartender) was very friendly and food was delicious! They forgot our bay shrimp on the salad but that was okay. Love the patio and heat lamps. Chocolate Decadence for dessert is the ultimate!

This was our first lunch outing after we had completed our Covid vaccinations. We were very pleased with the spacing of the tables and felt quite safe. The service and food were as exceptional as I had remembered.

Unfortunately, they were understaffed and the poor waiters couldn't possibly keep up.

The restaurant has been a good standby over the years and I hope they will be able
to stay in business.

Great service, yummy food, just didn’t feel luxurious; maybe it’s Covid and the paper menus, or maybe it was because I’ve never eaten here during the day light but it lacked an ambience. Service and food were amazing as usual.

Charming outdoor terrace! Very nice waitstaff. Excellent bread. Gnocchi was good, short ribs and the other pasta we tried were underwhelming. I think some new recipes would improve things a lot!

We were in the mood for something different and remembered dining al fresco here pre pandemic!
We were greeted by Ruben who from start to finish took excellent care of us!
We enjoyed some bubbly under a canopy on their patio while listening to some quiet jazz in the background, and savored their fresh baked focaccia with a yummy slightly spicy butter.
Our order was fried calamari, grilled chicken with avocado sandwich and an eggplant parmigiana with marinara sandwich, all very yummy and portions were generous!

We will be back!
