The food was amazing. The branzino special and the half roasted chicken were absolutely perfect delicious. Also, the churro vanilla bean ice cream sandwich topped with strawberries was fresh and sweetly spiced. So good! Very friendly and knowledgeable server. We are definitely returning to try one of the chef’s next specials.

It was supposed 7 year anniversary lunch. (Surprised for my wife) well we arrived and the restaurant was close. I wish someone called and told me about the closure.

I've eaten here in the past and it's always a great experience. Unfortunately, my wife didn't get the same experience.

There wasn’t many people in the restaurant due to covid which we actually liked because we had a section to ourselves. The food was really good and aesthetically pleasing to look at! I had the calamari, salmon, and sweet chili cauliflower. The servers were nice and humored us a little while we dined, I enjoyed it.

Very nice restaurant and amazing food. Our server was great also. Didn’t really wow with tuna taco apps- should have some soy sauce or citrus to it but EVERYTHING was amazing. I told our server it was my boo bday and they brought the dessert with candles. The scallops and risotto makes me want to drive there right now honestly! Was there around 3 during brunch time but we decided on dinner food. Looking forward to returning!

This is our favorite date night spot. The food is outstanding, as always. I highly recommend the scallops and the marinated lamb chops! The cheesecake was also amazing, very small though. Teddy was our server, and he is absolutely delightful. He was very attentive, but also let us have our privacy. We were spaced away adequately from other tables, and I felt very safe. Thank you, we will be back soon.

Came here for lunch today with my close girlfriend and we both thoroughly enjoyed it! To keep things light for lunch we both ordered tacos. She ordered the cheesesteak tacos, I ordered the BBQ chicken tacos. Both were flavorful and delicious! The restaurant did great keeping their guests properly social distanced even with a fair sized crowd. I will definitely be back for Sunday brunch ( Saturdays no brunch for now due to lighter crowds). Also, GET THE VINEGAR OLD BAY FRIES! You won’t be sorry!

Oh man did I want to like this place a lot! Even paid a hefty bill of $100 to find out we don't.

My husband and I actually visited this restaurant last October of 2019 and enjoyed it. We didn't get much that day we had only gotten a Caesar salad and maybe another appetizer but we looked forward to coming back.
We finally made it back.
My youngest son had a birthday event to attend at another restaurant within the vicinity so I figured tonight would be a great night to visit for date night. Upon leaving the house, my oldest son wanted to join so it was a dinner for 3.

Of course I did my due diligence before coming. This place was recommended by two personal friends and I did read the reviews on Yelp. The majority of the reviews were good, a handful were so so and a couple weren't good at all. I completely understand everyone's view now that I visited.
I'm gonna start w the pros.
Fantastic area, great parking options, very courteous staff from beginning to end, great beverage menu and swiftness of food delivery to table.
The cons were the food is quite pricey for the portion size, lack of taste and I am not really big on seasoning but salt pepper would do.
Although there aren't many cons, the severity outweighs the pros.

We ordered the Flautas which were very tasty, Roasted Half Chicken which wasn't eye appealing and a little dry, Double Crab Cake Special that was overrated in taste but had great accompaniments and the Old School Burger that my son loved although his fries were cold.

Despite my dissatisfaction with most recent visit, I would return one more time to try appetizers that I was eyeing as well as a beverage. My hopes are that I absolutely love the items and will be encouraged to come back again again and again including bringing friends.
