    The food, the service, and the vibe, were all stellar. I’ve been trying to come here for a very long time and I’m glad I was finally able to experience this restaurant. I hope to be back very soon. Deonte, not to be confused with Beyoncé was a wonderful waiter.

    Every moment — and bite — was nothing short of spectacular. We enjoyed the prix fixe menu with five courses, including mostly seafood as our protein. Cooked to perfection, well spiced, and satiating. Both chef and DiAnte (waiter - sorry if I misspelled) made us feel welcome as if at their home, while cooking as if we were top food critics. Bravo to both. Make a reservation ASAP (that’s the only way you'll get in!)

    We had a fabulous meal! My husband and I both had an amuse bouche - the jerk duck and the grilled octopus. Both were delicious! I had the chicken dumplings and my husband had the nitro shrimp and grits. Again, both were very tasty. Our next courses were the beet and burrata salad and the Brussels sprouts with bacon and dates. Yum! The main courses were the catch of the day - 4 jumbo shrimp on a bed of a spicy fried rice and the maple salmon. Each dish had interesting flavors and sauces. We each had a glass of wine and desserts were the brownie with raspberry coulis and the whipped lemon ricotta with honey and blueberries. I think we came home with 7 take out boxes because there was so much food! We had dinner for the following night! If you want to have a flavorful meal with unique dishes at a very reasonable price, including 8 dollar glasses of wine, visit Water for Chocolate. The service was great, and our waiter was so helpful and charming. We had a wonderful experience there celebrating our birthdays!

    The restaurant overall was great place. Small tables and they are close space limited. However they do have outdoor sitting which is spacious. When full can get a lot of ambiance noisy hard to hear across the small table Lol.. Would return and recommend.
