    Loved San Fermo! Stuart really made our evening :) The food is soo good. Dreaming of the mortadella raviolis and the chestnut crab pasta, truly superb. Cocktails were also outstanding, best mule I've ever had. You can taste the ginger beer and the perfect amount of alcohol. Chestnut cake with butternut squash ganache was the cherry on top, going to figure out how to make that at home <3 Will definitely be back, worth the price point absolutely. Beautiful small low light space with a nice soft choice of music, would be a great date, anniversary, or small celebration spot. Sad the party limit is 5 people but totally understandable given the size of the space! Gives me more opportunities to come back and try their rotating menu.

    We had a great date night at Sailfish! We had the best time chatting with our waiter (Joey) and the head chef (Zach) came out to talk to us because we were a huge fan of the blueberry custard pie dessert we had! Everyone was so so nice. The bartenders also love going off menu and creating fun drinks based on your liquor of choice and a flavor - highly recommend this place!
