    Been to this restaurant before and always had a good experience. The food is consistently good. The lighting above the booth seats is a bit harsh and the tables are showing signs of wear but parking outside is easy and close to the restaurant.

    Food was very good, plentiful sauce on caprese, chicken very tender. Pasta could have used a little more Parmesan. Risotto was dry. Service was excellent, Noah did an amazing job.

    My husband and I had brunch today and enjoyed it very much. The only problem was what to choose. It all looked great. Great service and reasonably priced. We had Caesar salad and the shrimp and andouille pasta. The muffins were addictive. Can’t wait to go back!

    The service by waiter Charley was wonderful. We had a cozy little booth. I’m sorry to say the food was underwhelming and a disappointment. I had the Grouper Lyonaise . Supposed to have a crispy potato crust , it wasn’t crispy at all in fact it was mushy and tasteless. My vegetable were undercooked. My husband had the swordfish and he enjoyed it . My daughter ordered the New York strip with some kind of gravy on it . She is gluten free so she couldn’t finish it. Her husband had Cajun pasta which was good . We ordered the apple cobbler for dessert . The apples were under cooked which is not desirable in a cobbler . Not sure I will visit this restaurant again.😣
