Impeccable service as one would expect. Ambience was nice. A little noisy with some larger parties nearby. The food was incredible. Worth it.

The food was great, we had a gourmet meal. It is different from Asia bay, completely different menu with tasty entrees. The edamame was great with a special garlic/ sesame seed seasoning. We had the ceviche, which was great with the cassava chips, the scallops were amazing in a special mushroom sauce. We got the truffle mac and cheese, and loved it! I had my baby there and she kept eating it! Overall, it was a great experience. It is on the pricey side though, because everything plus 2 cocktails was about $100 per person. I would say it’s a great place to celebrate a special occasion.

Amazing!! Our server was Victoria which was amazing. She was so engaging with my friend and I. We were unsure what to order, she helped us in the process. Was attentive to when we needed water or any other additional stuff. Food was out of the world amazing. We ordered a platter from the appetizer amazing. I just would tell them not to put tomato on the grape leaf, that gave it an odd taste. And the baby bbq chicken was delicious, so good, the meat was coming off the bone and the saffron rice Complement it really well.

Menu is limited to pizza and one salad. Wine is limited to Italian organic variety. That's my only gripe, but the place overall is very relaxing and good crowd.

Food and service were on point. The exterior and interior of this historic building has exquisite southern charm. There was a wedding upstairs which added to the noise level but it was tolerable.

This is a nice restaurant with good atmosphere. As a BYOB establishment, I’m not a fan of a corkage fee but I guess it covers the cost of providing and cleaning the glasses. Overall it was enjoyable and I would go back again.

The food, service and ambience were all good. We had a lobster roll which was more salad and not quite enough lobster but still good. The stuffed flounder was also cooked very nicely. We would order both again. Did not like that there were so many items marked "market price" on the menu, and they did not have the wine I wanted even though it was on the wine list.
