The restaurant is closed for remodeling. Drove all the way there for nothing. So we had pizza next door at Coldfire. Skip Besa in the future and go to Coldfire

When I got to the restaurant (on time), There were signs on the windows saying "Closed for remodeling", and there was a eviction notice attached to the front door. I'm not sure why I was allowed to make a reservation and waste my time going there.

Food was very good as usual. Petit filet (6 oz.) was tender, moist, and perfectly cooked. Blackened redfish was delicious and large. Sides of sauteed veggies nicely seasoned and fresh. Yellow rice was different! App. of Besa Besa shrimp with spicy aioli sauce was delectable. Best of all , bottles of wine were 50% discounted!!! When we questioned this, server told us they were closing soon (yes going out of business!!!). We were shocked as their food and service have always been quite good. We will miss them!

First of all, when you go here ask for Dakota to be your waitress.....

This restaurant was very accommodating to our food requests. We had ordered the crab cake appetizer which was good. Then both of us wanted vegetables. We asked it the kitchen could create a vegetable platter for us to share.... What a lovely creation they was prepared for us.

Dakota, our waitress, brought out to platters so artistically prepared....
The first one had 2 serving of a medoly of yellow squash, zucchini, onions, and red pepper that were all sautéed. The send platter, again artistically prepared was steamed asparagus in the center with Sautéed spinach mounds on either side off it....

What a. New wonderful dish the chef created.... We will be back....
