    We always hoped to go to the restaurant but it is always full during the summer. We went in the offseason and can see why people love this place. The food, the service and the ambience were great. Thank you and hopefully, we can get back in "during the summer".

    Went for Mother’s Day. Had three kids with us, and two adults. Spent around $250 for the meals with two appetizers. My husband had the fish that was a special and I had a seafood pasta special. Both were great! It was nice to finally have a meal that was worth the price. Two kids had pasta and butter and the other had Penne Vodka, which he loved. Would definitely go back again. I wish they had a tasting menu, that would have been amazing, as I wanted to try everything!!

    Not going back! The special fish entree that isn’t very special is priced at $52. And, drowning a light fish like halibut in marinara sauce ruined it. Made the reservation as a result of a gift card that wasn’t accepted in the end.
