Such beautiful lighting, but the overhead lights are too bright. Should be darker. Didn’t like the “blessed” and hay in the corner of the library. Almost decorated nicely, but a little redneck.

Overall the experience was seemless and the food was on point. The service was top shelf. Already recommended to my friends and family. It is a louder experience in the main dining, but not anything I would complain off. If you are wanting a quiet experience then I suggest the side tables off the main dining. The center cut filet melts in your mouth!!

A perfect night. Our waiter was amazing. The food was delicious. The atmosphere relaxed and romantic. It was an epic date night. We had the tuna bites for an appetizer which was a bit spicer than I wanted but was delicious. My date had the shrimp and grits which he raved about. I had the grilled grouper with a lobster tail and it was Devine. The grouper was cooked perfectly. The lobster risotto had huge chunks of lobster in it and was superb. I wasn’t a fan of the Parmesan arugula but that is just personal taste. The lobster tail was cooked perfectly. We had two cocktails which were delicious. My only real complaint was that someone tried to take our appetizer from the table before we were done! My boyfriend quickly grabbed his fork to take the last piece as it was so good we weren’t willing to trash a bite of it. Lol. It is expensive there but the experience and the food was worth every penny. Even my penny pincher boyfriend agreed. Lol. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant.

The food was great. The service was outstanding. But for the price you pay the ambiance fell short. They have nice side rooms that are great but my party was sat in very back of the main room next to the kitchen. I made the reservation about 4 days in advance and have eaten there approx 5 times before and was always sat in the very nice side areas. I didn't even know the main dining room existed lol. So when we were sat at a table that was too small half chairs half booth in the very back of the restaurant it just didn't seem worth the price you pay. I asked to be moved but they said they were too busy. I almost just left but it was my wife's birthday and she wanted to stay even though we were constantly bumped into by the servers leaving the kitchen. If it hadn't been for the excellent food I would have complained. Long story short. Make a reservation and specify that you DO NOT WANT THE MAIN DINING ROOM.

Finally found sushi on par with what I had in Hawaii. Their steak is also prepared perfectly, and this is coming from someone who is extremely particular about their steak. Best date night place in PCB! Oh and they have a library with an original mark twain books minted in 1921. Just saying, this place is magical.

Food was excellent and service was really really good. The only thing we found disappointing was the fact that we were there celebrating a birthday and while they acknowledged it by wishing us a happy birthday we just thought there would be at least a special dessert for the birthday person
