Food very good for our 1st time there, we had the Charcuterie Board then we both had the lobster ravioli's which was the squid ink pasta and large chunks of Lobster! We felt bad for our Server, she was taking care of the not only the dining room but the outdoor seating area. Yes we waited 30 minutes after our first drink order, then to place our food order, but we told her how sorry we felt for her and completely understood! We will definitely be back!

We went for "Restaurant Week" and had a nice time. The portions where adequate the dessert was teeny tiny but delicious. On a normal day the prices are too high but for this occasion it was worth it as I got to taste a bit of what the restaurant had to offer. Next time will try the happy hour.

Food was delicious with good service including comfortable outdoor dining. We did not feel rushed at all which was great since it was a get together including a friend I have not seen for a while.

Our waitress was super, efficient & personable. The setting on the porch was perfect. Food was delicious. I would suggest that the bar get a blender for frozen drinks, like a strawberry daquiri,especially in the summer months.

Family meal with 2 seniors and 2 children. Nice range of menu items, and everyone had a couple of good options to choose from. Cappuccino was excellent, as were the deserts. Highly recommended.

Very accomodating- a very crowded evening but they were able to accomodate our request for a table change from the noisy bar area to the periphery of the main dining room. Food was delicious and our server was always available and checking if we needed anything in a very unobtrusive way.

The food was amazing. The restaurant was a little cold and we had to change table because of it. We had four different servers which was a little disconcerting but it wasn’t really a big deal because the food was so very good. I can’t wait to go again.

Over priced and not great food! I ordered scallops and shrimp and it was 3 med shrimp, 3 med scallops, a small scoop of mashed potatos with wilted green beans on the side. I thought there was a mistake. The dish was cold. My kids liked their meals, so not a total bust. I travel and eat at many restaurants yearly, this was a rip-off.

Sat outside; they were extremely accommodating with seating for my guest, with significant COVID concerns.

My guest’s pasta dish was excellent and innovative; my veal dish was surprisingly just fair - great presentation but fairly tasteless.

The chocolate cake we shared for dessert was also fair.

I would definitely come back and try the restaurant again; it and the parking lot were full, and there seemed to be a lot of returning guests - assume they just had an off night or I didn’t make the best choices in ordering.
