I was very disappointed in the service here. The food was good and the restaurant is quite pretty but our waiter was almost non existent and paid very little attention to us.

The food is excellent and so is the service.
The back room feels like a wedding reception hall but it’s a little dimmer lit than the very bright front garden. Also, the front has tables too close to each other and doesn’t feel comfortable.
Another critique I would add is about the chairs, not very comfortable for the setting.
Again. Great food and great service. Ambiance and furniture not so much.

We went on a Monday night to celebrate our son’s 25th birthday. Special occasion. We were a party of 8 and I guess that was the problem. The restaurant was not crowded and our waiter had absolutely no personality. I guess since the tip was already include due to the party of 8 he didn’t even try to do a good job. Pasta was salty too. Will not go back again!

Amazing food. Service is great also. It’s just enough that I say it was great food. I’m very picky about how outcome of food and service is.

Positives: Romantic, pretty space
Negatives: Limited wine by the glass list; bread unworthy of a fine restaurant
This visit: The service was almost painfully slow. The waiter might have been seduced by how long we looked at the menu, but, once we ordered, the service was really slow especially considering the place was not crowded.
The Branzino was a tiny bit soft; the salmon, a bit dry. The artichoke salad was terrific, tasty and fresh.

Place seemed a little tired, old decor, Christmas lights everywhere (white), garden like but not. Food was okay, out of three people, only one had outstanding dish, rest were avg at best. People were nice, food just okay. Appears to be a local place where people come to order their favorites. There are better choices in BH, will opt to try other restaurants.

The restaurant has been around for a long time for a reason... it's a great place to dine. I gave it only 4 stars both in the food and the value only because if you are charging premium, I'd like to know more about the food. For example, I had the bone in Rib Eye. For the price it needs to be grass-fed, grass-finished and pasture raised. In this day and age, if it doesn't say it, we are all guessing. If it's less than what I've mentioned, it doesn't deserve a 5-star rating. I suggest ownership consider making this change to reflect the times we now live in.

We have eaten at this restaurant a number of times. The food is always excellent and they do not object to making dietary modifications such as low sodium. The service is excellent without being over bearing and the waiters do an excellent job of filleting the branzino. The ambience is quite romantic, especially in good weather when one can sit outside..

What an enchanted evening. From the minute we walked in, the gentlemen that greeted us treated us with warm welcome, mostly in Italian. We're both Sicilian so it made us both smile. I had told them ahead of time that we were recently married and they made the kind gesture to place us at a table with rose petals, away from the rest of the guests so that we might have a more intimate dinner. My new wife was absolutely glowing, she was smiling so big. The service was impeccable; our glasses were never empty but they made certain never to interrupt our conversation. The food was very good, the bread that was delivered tasted freshly baked and recently warmed for our enjoyment. My wife got a ceasar salad and I requested the burrata pugliese, both came with heirloom tomatoes. The ceasar dressing was quite good, not fishy. The burrata was good but needed a few more tomatoes. For our main courses she chose the pappardelle de cinghiale (wild boar ragu); there wasn't a bite left on her plate and she NEVER eats all of her food, if this gives you any indication of how delectable it was. I had the homemade tagliolini with seafood in a light white wine sauce; there was so much variety in the seafood and it was all cooked to perfection. You will not go hungry with this dish. We finished with 3 desserts because we couldn't decide - tiramisu, an apple tart with pistachio gelato, and homemade biscotti for our cappuccino. Tiramisu is our favorite dessert and this was the best tiramisu I've had in a long time, it was perfectly light with chocolate shavings (not powder that makes you cough), with a berry compote that really complimented the flavors. The apples were a bit sweet for my liking but she seemed to enjoy them. And the biscotti was perfect for the excellently-made cappuccino.
All in all it was a dream. We will definitely be back.

Unfortunately I would not. While my filet was done quite well, the rest of my food was not. The sautéed spinach was much too salty and the mashed potatoes were on par with boxed mashed potatoes. However, the ambiance was very sweet and would make a nice date environment.
