The food here is always delicious and the wait staff are excellent. The manager was a bit overly enthusiastic, but it's hard to fault someone for trying too hard.

I really enjoyed my meal, service was very nice. Had dinner with a good friend and enjoyed it.
Prices are a bit high, particularly wine and liquor. $26 for a 6 oz glass of wine, although more premium label, is still very high.

$400 for two people with only 1 appetizer and no dessert is a bit high.

Pricing is the only thing that would keep me from recommending your restaurant.

Cant order shots to the table, kinda tacky

Staff were vacuuming and sweeping in the dining room while we were eating

Think the food and drinks are super overpriced compared to other restaurants and drinks aren’t properly made.

I don’t know why I continue to come here. Every time something is off. The waiter was awesome so I give credit for that. I had to send the steak back because it was disgusting. No flavor even with all the sauces and so tough I had to spit it out.

We were visiting the area while we dropped our daughter off at college. We ended up eating here 3 times in the span of as many days. 2 dinners and 1 brunch. The whole experience was phenomenal. We can’t wait to come and visit our student so we can eat here again and again.

We enjoyed overall! The appetizers (blackened shrimp tacos) and complimentary bread (focaccia) just happened to be better than our actual entrees (turkey burger & tuna tartare). Will try something different when I go again!

Went here for my partners birthday.
The ambiance inside was very nice.
Waiter was very attentive without hovering over us.
We ordered from the Prix fix menu, and the food was excellent.

We were promptly seated. The server was very pleasant and competent, but she was likely given more tables than her comfort zone could carry. The food was simply great - special kudos to the calimari app. Overall, a very good choice for birthday evening.

We ate outside and it was perfect. Food was so delicious. I had a salad with blackened shrimp and my gf had the avocado toast with shrimp and poached eggs. There was not a bite left. The waiter was super nice knowing when to come over and when to let girls be girls and talk!! Sorry I don’t remember his name but he was awesome.

We ordered the Spinach cheese dip with chips for a starter. The dip was tasty and served warm. For lunch we ordered the chicken cobb salad. This was a generous scoop of chicken salad with cranberries and nuts served on a piece of cobb lettuce with a croissant and fries. It was delicious and I would recommend it.

We hadn’t been since before Covid. We sat outside—they had a nice patio before the pandemic—and it was a wonderful evening. We can happily report that they still are one of Nassau counties best spots for everyday dining. And yes, it is also appropriate for special occasions.

One thing I noticed the booth I was sitting at the seats there was a lot of crumbs. And the rug under the table looked stained. Could be more cleanliness friendly

Loved our dining experience. Beautiful atmosphere- tastefully decorated. The waitress was extremely friendly! And helpful! Didn’t rush putting in our main entree. Food was outstanding!! You have to try the white peach sangria. The red quinoa salad with fried goat cheese was so different and delish!

First time and WOW I was surprised big time. Everything was so good and hot. I had the avocado toast with charred shrimp and it was soooooo good I ate it all. The Octopus was perfect the drinks were so good and there was a cool jazz band playing. I'm going back for sure and our server Crystal was so sweet and so nice.
