I had the tasting dinner. My husband ordered an entree and salad. He sampled my courses which were generous and quite delicious. The service is excellent. We will definitely return.

The chef’s menu is the way to go. The food just keeps on coming and each plate is top notch with a bit of adventure thrown in. The service has been excellent both times we have been there and since we usually tip 20%, we have no problem with the tip included in the bill.

we had the chef's menu with wine pairing
the wines were very good...
the fried oysters were so plain.... didn't add... actually detracted from the very high quality of all the other food

serves were perfectly prompt and attentive.... patient... the best

For those that bring their own wine and are paying a corkage fee why not offer to decant the wine or offer decanting for all bottles of wine whether purchased at restaurant or brought from home.

The tasting menu was a great value, 4 courses for only $55. The food was excellent and plenty of it. We hadn't been here for a few years and had out of town guests, they thoroughly enjoyed dining here. Would highly recommend.

Great food with excellent service. We had a multitude of food items that needed to be avoided and they accommodated all of them easily with tasty and attractive entrees throughout. Not our first time nor our last. Highly recommended!
