I enjoyed my meal. The Lobster was over cooked but the sauce was great and the place was beautiful and we sat outside to enjoy the street show. My wife had chicken curry and it was pretty awful. I have read others complaints that the foot was under seasoned and that was certainly the issue. I had to add my sauce to save it and it still fell short. Great spot but the chef needs to step up.

We ate outside on the patio right on Duval street. We had scallops and the surf and turf, both were excellent
Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. We would definitely go back

Perfect place to celebrate a birthday. We had a party of 6 . Went to watch the sunset in Mallory Square and a quick walk to the restaurant. Everyone in our party loved their food, and our waiter was excellent. We will be back!

Service was a bit slow, my “chef’s tasting” meal was subpar... both steak and lobster were over cooked, and the ravioli was bland and unimpressive, shrimp was good only redeeming element on the plate

Great location, beautiful setting. Food was pricey compared with other restaurants in the area and relatively small portions. Was not blown away by any of the dishes. Creamy sauces, fairly bland.

It was a great evening and the service was outstanding. Ate outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather and activity of Duval Street. They were also amazing about working with us on our daughter's PKU medical dietary needs. I highly recommend eating here.

Horrible experience at this place. I called hours ahead asking for a bottle and the best possible seat at the restaurant. Instead I got a wobbly table and a wife thinking I didnt want to spend money for a honeymoon dinner. Management didnt come out or even give anything complimentary after incident. Would def not recommend. There are way better places less expensive with better food and a hundred an 10 million percent service then this place.

Found the restaurant on a whim. Made an outdoor seating choice, that was on the front porch. We were celebrating my 60 th birthday. My wife and I brought with us a 1985 Vintage bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from a winery in Sonoma Ca. The waiter decanted the bottle for us. The chef made me a surf and turf of a 1/2 duck and lobster tail. Which paired fantastically with the duck. We sat and enjoyed the street action. Fantastic meal
