This was an amazing find for us. It allowed us to make a reservation for a very good, upscale place in St. Augustine Beach. Wasn't sure how good it would but we were so happy with it, and even our 2 children loved it!
Food was high quality as was everything about this experience!

We had reservations for 4 at 6:30 on a Monday. We were seated promptly ordered wine, an appetizer and our entrees. Wine arrived quickly followed by the appetizer but the entrees took about 90 minutes to arrive. The waitress, to her credit, did what she could. Needless to say I did not enjoy my meal all that much.
If this restaurant wants to seat as many people as they are doing they need to staff up.

Scott was bartending for the entire restaurant while also waiting on the tables in the bar section. Through no fault of his own, he couldn’t keep up on this moderately busy Monday. He seemed to have only occasional assistance running food. We waited at least 20 minutes for our first round of drinks. Food took at least an hour. Two of our four meals were up to usual standard. A third meal was the wrong order, but the guest kept it anyway. The fourth was cold. We are regulars and will try again, but it was a disappointing experience.

Overall it was great, but we ordered a large salad and it was way too small. Bread used to come with the entree, but we were surprised that it now has to be ordered separately.

Came in for a light bite, ended up with a three-course meal, with a bottle of Bolla Prosecco. Unfortunately, the wine appears on the wine list twice (once with a glass/bottle pricing, then at the bottom, with the bottle only pricing. We were charged $28 for the bottle (the glass/bottle pricing) not the $26 price at the bottom. Didn't want to quibble over $2.

The hostess was a little rude and the waiter was so awkward it was weird. The food was absolutely amazing. Loved the food. They were out of a few things and several wines but that didn’t affect our dinner. Everything was delicious and presented well.

We have dined at TA numerous times. every time we are in st. Augustine we come here multiple times and have always been pleased. We sat outdoors in their pretty courtyard. our waitress, Myles was wonderful ~very pleasant and very attentive. There was a bit of an initial lag as she had not been advised that we were there. Started things off with a Cabernet and a Manhattan. The tri colore and ceasar salads were excellent, as always. I, once again, because I absolutely love it, ordered the fiocchetti pera robiola. As always, it was soooo delicious! Hubby had the lasagna, which was very good also! We finished off the evening with an espresso and a coffee. Another enjoyable evening and delicious meal. Thank you! See you again very soon. (Actually we had take out pizza from there last night too! excellent 😁)

With the noise level and the current mask mandates it's extremely hard to hear and understand your waitstaff. Otherwise the service was very good and the food was great. If possible, the outdoor seating would be the best choice.

We have been dining here for over 3 years and love it. The food is consistent - delicious! Great service & atmosphere. Cannot say enough good things about this place. We've tried just about everything on the menu and it is all excellent. Try the antipasto platter which is divine or one of their specials which changes from week to week and the seasons. We highly recommend.

We love the place!! My husband had the lasagne, and it is delicious! I had the wild boar dish, and have to admit I was a bit disappointed . The pieces of meat could have been smaller, were a bit tough (wild boar, I guess), and the dish was a bit boring with just meat and gravy and noodles. I think the dishes could have had more color.

We had reservations for 6:30 but arrived at 6. They suggested we wait in the bar. The bartender told us we could sit anywhere and we were able to just stay there to eat. It was much quieter in the bar than in the main dining room. The bartender doubled as our waiter and was very friendly and knowledgeable about the different seafood offerings. They have some specialty cocktails and two of us had the barrel aged Manhattan’s. They were delicious! We all enjoyed our meals though the Wahoo I tried was quite dry. However we all agreed we would go back.

My wife and i had eaten here before and it was much better previously. The good: the appetizer was quite good (Fritti?) the calabrita martini was very good ; the fair: the Bibb salad was ok just uninspired. The bad: the Seafood lasagna was horrible , the bechamel sauce had separated, the promised seafood was not what was described it was more like seafood puree and part of it was burnt. My wife got the traditional lasagna and it was not as bad as the seafood version but portion was very small and really not much to it just basic sauce . One thing that is so important for restaurants is consistency . The waiter by the way was outstanding, Josh I believe.

We have dined here multiple times in the past. Some changes (due to co-vid , I'm sure) - no beer taps anymore - no complimentary bread - there is a nominal fee for the bread but it wasn't even mentioned - nor on the menu - until I asked about bread. Food was good but service from the kitchen was longer than typical due to new kitchen staff. We will definitely return and will know to request bread when we order :)
