The food is delicious and it’s such a great place. The service is perfection! Fantastic wine selection.
My husband loved everything about this restaurant.
We are going to call it our place to go at least once a month.
10 stars, and the owner is very lovely, She walks around and makes sure that everyone is happy with what their meal is and the service. She takes a lot of pride in her restaurant.

We tried this place on a whim. Such a cute outdoor patio area! The food was good and the service was perfect. I had the short rib and it was just a tad salty, but the potatoes and spinach were great! My husband had the chicken Marsala, and it must’ve been good because he ate it all pretty fast. Reasonably priced place. We will be back.

Was there as they opened at 11:30 a.m. for lunch. I had the Chicken Wrap which I highly recommend. The chicken seasons and the way it was cooked, made the sandwich.

This review has been months in the making. My husband and I, back in May, made a reservation after purchasing a Groupon months prior. After being seated, I informed our server we had a Groupon, we were then told their Happy Hour was still going on and would we like anything from the Happy Hour Menu we'd already been given. After we order and our items served, we were then informed we couldn't use our Groupon for Happy Hour.

We said, oh that's fine, we are also planning on ordering dinner. To which we were told, no, that doesn't matter, you will need to pay full price for Happy Hour Items if you stay and order more.

I asked to talk to the manager, who then informed us, she was the owner. She proceeded to loudly scold us with other customers around and tell us it was listed on the Groupon. I pulled it up...it wasn't. And we also stated again...we are still planning on ordering dinner, so we'd use the Groupon on full priced items.

NOPE, IF YOU ORDER HAPPY HOUR, YOU CAN'T USE A GROUPON ON FULL PRICED ITEMS.

Apparently, her need to be right is more important than customers. So we paid our Happy Hour bill and left.

Groupon then extended the expiration date and my husband asked me to give the place another chance. This time, we made our reservation AFTER Happy Hour. We were sat right next to the waiter station, yet, we sat there for about 15 mins before anyone acknowledged us. They apologized but again, it's amazing how far a small gesture of a free appetizer or dessert would have gone. Of course, we saw the owner there and remembered money is more import to her, then customer service, so we were not expecting anyone to handle the situation correctly.

If you don't have a Groupon and don't have a run in with the owner, the decor is nice, the wait staff is friendly and the food is hit or miss, but for the price good.

I have eaten here several times now for lunches or dinners in the last couple months and this was the least satisfactory dinner of all. I ordered the blackened salmon salad & the salmon was blackened but seemed not nearly as well cooked as I would have preferred. It was taken back without a problem and re-cooked but just did not seem the same as the last time I had ordered that dish before which had been done perfectly. I will still return to this restaurant in the future for the overall quality, value, and service.

Haven’t been here in years but we wanted to do a happy hour and saw them listed on Eater. Very nice wine selection (highly recommend Duckhorn Decoy). We had happy hour apps. The fruit and cheese Board was small but then again it was a happy hour portion. Stuffed shrimp cooked perfectly but the stuffing did not have enough crab and was a bit dry. Coconut shrimp was good and the chutney went well with it. The tomato salad was overdressed but the flavors were good. Meatballs were very good and the sauce had a nice spicy kick.

The food was excellent the reason for 3 stars we ordered a $40 bottle of wine and the had the nerve of charging us a $15 corkage fee added to the bill, this is ridiculous. If you do go there take you own wine they will charge you a $15 corkage fee but it is cheaper than buying wine from them.

Hello, Thank you for joining us. I'm sorry about the confusion of the pricing of the wine - we have a retail license and have two prices listed on the wine list: The bold column in red states dine in pricing, and the black column to the right of it states it is for wines taken to-go. The dine-in price is only $15 more than the retail pricing and I think if you compare our list to a retailer such as Total Wine, you will see our to-go pricing is very comparable!

Had the reservation and we arrived a little early & were seated in the back of the room, by the help stand & kitchen when there was barely anyone in the place. Two women matter also & don’t need to be hidden in the rear of the place. Will never taint their place again!
