Good service but the food was lacking taste. I got the risotto and it was pretty tasteless. My boyfriend ordered the swordfish special and he said it wasn’t good. The blueberry basil margarita was good, though.

We haven’t been back since the pandemic, but we are so glad we went! Great food, super staff, the place was packed and they had live music outside. We sat upstairs for the first time and the service was exceptional. Thanks for a great meal - we’ll be back!

Waited 45 minutes for appetizers and an hour and 15 for entrées. When they serve the entrées the server substituted the special fish with something different because they ran out of the special fish but never told us. Just Iberia bad experience was hoping for much better as this was our first time but unfortunately, our last

made a last minute reservation and sat outside. Service was attentive and we ordered Wedge salad with blue cheese dressing and crispy bacon bits with grape tomatoes and grilled chicken ...it was honestly the best wedge salad I ever had and my husband had the same but Caesar Salad with polenta croutons and grilled chicken ...He loved it . From the waitress I'm guessing this was a Summer menu and it changes seasonally so will go back in the Fall to see whats new

A wonderful dinner and experience - from the atmosphere to the food and great music - live music is outdoors some nights and otherwise a cool vibe listening to backyard station on Spotify (I asked!!) we love James and their beautiful family run business - we will def be there more often in future. Yum!!! Congrats on this wonderful eatery!! Nina Rich

Hidden gem in Huntington. Staff initially sat our group of 5 at a very small table for 4 and squeezed us in despite there being several other larger open tables. After several
Minutes and requesting to move, we were finally seated elsewhere. After getting over this hump, the rest of the experience was great.

The apps were delicious. Highly recommend the cauliflower bites and loaded pretzel. The BBQ chicken flatbread was yummy … but cold. ;(

The veggie burger was a big disappointment. Very thin patty wedges between a delicious pretzel bun that went very soggy.

The rice bowls were overflowing and super fresh. Both of guests had plenty of leftovers to bring home.

After noting on open table that it was my husband’s birthday, our server brought out a complimentary dessert and began singing with other servers…all without ever being asked by me to do so. What a lively surprise and terrific way to end this lovely dining experience.

We will definitely return. Great price value. Lovely staff. Super clean and socially distanced tables.

Anyone with a disability should note that there is a huge flight of stairs to climb in order to get to the upstairs dining area.

Food was terrible and overly priced. Our pretzel was stale my, my veggie burger had a weird after taste and the bun was stale, the meal was cold. My husbands steak was not good. Everything tasted old and not fresh. Disappointing.

We enjoyed our evening. The food was very good and the service outstanding. We both ordered the halibut special but they ran out and switched it to flounder.So we were a little disappointed but no big deal. The main reason we wanted to try this place was because of the fantastic reviews mentioning the flourless chocolate cake. They ran out of this too. We will try again though.

We had brunch here for Father’s Day. We were a party of 5 and everyone ordered something different. 2 omelettes, the Taco Salad, Chicken and Waffles and Eggs Benedict on Risotto cakes. We were all very happy and satisfied with our selections. The desserts were very decadent and delicious. Portion sizes are conducive to sharing. We ordered 3 desserts: the Flourless Chocolate cake, the Almond cake with blueberries and the made to order Passion Fruit Cannolis. The service was excellent and staff is very friendly. We ate in the upstairs dining room. Ambiance is fresh and updated with eclectic art decorating the walls. It’s important to note long staircase to get up there so for handicapped people, request a table on ground floor. Live music on Sundays outside restaurant on sidewalk. Definitely give it a try! You won’t regret it.
