    I took my medical assistant Francisca there to experience having lunch at Sesamo. She loved the fried calamari. I enjoyed the Fennell salad with grilled chicken. Quiet ambiance and good service.

    The food and the service is consistently first class. We really appreciated accommodations made for a member of our party who is currently on crutches. We will return.

    As always the meal was excellent and each of the dishes tasty and enjoyed by all. This time we brought a friend from New Zealand who was quite impressed by the flavors and combinations of ingredients. Last time my wife brought three of her best friends upon my recommendation and prior experience. They all said unusually each and every dish they ordered was excellent and did not disappoint. That had not happened very often. My wife and friend from New Zealand could not stop talking about their meal and experience at Sesamo the next day.
