Great food with innovative Caribbean-Latin fusion flavors, fresh ingredients and yummy drinks programs-seasonal and happy hour. Outdoor seating available with plenty of heaters to keep off the chill, along with charming fireplace, and fairy lights make it very romantic.

We were given the choice to sit inside or outside. It was as chilly evening, so we opted for inside. Noise level of other diners’ conversations was a little loud. Service was excellent.

We started with soup and a appetizer, which were both delicious. We each ordered the special Wild Alaskan Halibut as the entree. It was well prepared, but flavorless. It was served with a white sauce. Perhaps if the sauce was a little more flavorful, that would have helped.

We finished with dessert (Key Lime Pie and Cocoanut flan), both of which were delicious.

Overall an excellent experience. We will be back.

Entrees are a bit skimpy. Plates when done with you meal should have been cleared off sooner, than later.

The patio has an ambiance for a romantic evening or to sit and meet friends.
I was welcomed by staff and they immediately had us at our table.
The waiter had a wonderful personality and was very helpful with everything we asked for. The food and presentation are amazing!
I am excited to go back to try a different entrée.

I love this place! However we arrived and were told it was only brunch. The menu was very limited and the chillaquiles were underwhelming. However, I can’t wait to return for dinner. It’s a lovely location and an interesting and diverse menu.

One of the waiters spilled marinara all down the side of my white cashmere sweater. Then gave me a card for the manager so they would pay for a dry cleaner. Then the manager winked at me.

Had a reservation, arrived early but we’re seated right away. Service was prompt. Good wines by the glass, enjoyed both. Butternut squash soup was outstanding. We both had the halibut which was on the daily specials menu. It was very fresh and prepared well. I would order it again if available. A very enjoyable evening.

The best meal we’ve all had in a long time, and not just because we haven’t been out in a long time because of Covid. Each dish was delicious, appetizers through dessert!
