We dined outdoors in the lovely tented side yard. The food was delicious, the service just the right amount of attentiveness, and the ambience delightful. We will be back.

The experience outdoors is not nearly as elegant and intimate as the dining room pre-covid. However, the food is still superb!

Consistently excellent food well presented. Service was slow. Appeared to be short at least one server. I'm sure they are suffering the same challenge to find workers like many small businesses.

What a great evening, the outdoor space is terrific as was the service. We had mussels and clams as our app (really great). A couple of us had the halibut and the someone had the Frutti di Mare, everything was delicious. Our waiter was truly fantastic and when he was busy, everyone else that worked there, was right there to see f we needed anything. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We stopped in for an early dinner and ate in the beautiful garden. Our waiter was engaging and knowledgeable and just attentive enough (we don't like being constantly checked in on!). All four of us had the specials for appetizers and entrees and everything was fresh, flavorful, and perfectly cooked.

We went to celebrate our 10th anniversary along with our kids. The food was fantastic and the ambience (outdoor seating) was terrific. The waiters were attentive and both me and my wife were impressed by the high school busboy Eric who was very diligent and even took a pic or two of us a family. Great job on the chef's part to take young people like him under his wing and help them learn the business as well develop responsible character!

Slow service, ran out of 2 entrees we wanted. With a smaller menu this led to us ordering food we really didn’t intent to eat. Food took forever to come out. I’ve been here twice before and it was a much better experience previously

The food was delicious but the service was poor, it took long to place our order and get our food, however the waiters were very friendly. I got the impression they were short staffed and the kitchen was overwhelmed, with the addition of the tent outside the capacity more than doubled the indoor dining space pre-covid. I would still come back because I think it was an off night.

The food was amazing but it is a bit on the pricey side. Service was very efficient and we appreciated the restaurant accommodating inside seating because the weather got a little too chilly for me to enjoy sitting outdoors. Overall amazing experience and will be returning.

Wonderful outdoor space and interesting and eclectic menu. Food was outstanding from mussel and clam appetizer to grilled bronzini entree to fallen chocolate cake desert. My wife had fall off the bone riblets and delicious puffs with coconut ice cream desert. Only negative was the service. 3 hours to complete our meal and I had to search for our waiter to ask for the check. I hope this fact is only due to inability to find enough staff. Regardless, we will return.
