First time here, went based on Open Table and Yelp rave reviews. Food is delicious and very fresh. We had 2 nice salads and a tasty fried oysters app. Main courses were Red Snapper and sliced Waygu NY strip, both excellent. I really like the choice of vegetables and starches that come with the entrees. Dessert: they make a great italian cheesecake and chocolate tart, and we loved them.

Service was excellent, with Mare as our server. This is a relaxed restaurant, expensive but well worth it. Looking forward to going back.

Third time here in 2 months, does not disappoint. I had the chicken parm - not something i remember being on the menu in the past - kind of a traditional dish perhaps and this place tends to do things a bit differently. It was fantastic - all in the sauce which is very good. Burrata ravioli is very tasty as well. Service is always good and the bar is a great spot for a pre or post dinner drink.

Seems this place is a hidden treasure. The food was absolutely amazing, attentive staff that knew when to check on us and knew when to leave us to our conversation. While this was our first visit we had heard about the quality of food for years. We’ll be back frequently.

We were really impressed with the service of the waitstaff (a very thorough description was given of the cheese plate we ordered), and then the owner also came out to thank us for our business. We really enjoyed the burrata ravioli and apple crumb cake dessert. Will definitely go back - we look forward to dining outdoors and also when the bar can open again as it’s a nice setup inside but not in use with Covid restrictions. We thought this place was a great find that we couldn’t believe we’d never been to despite living very close.
