We are regulars but this trip we had an anticipated burger....not juicy at all. French Fries were different. Overall based on this past trip, we won't be returning.

Ambience, food, food service well done. Restaurant has multiple seating arrangements. For best seating, request the booths as this offers the best perspective of the overall eating experience. Tableside bananas foster desert prep was high level. Great craft cocktails & chef is the Sommelier & has great insight into food & wine pairings. Would do this again in a heartbeat.👌

We had a new waitress that needed some supervision. She talked about the chefs special complementary appetizer and we did not receive it, she forgot my husbands salad. She seemed to be paying a lot of attention to other tables near us. Always good food but mediocre service our last time there for a pricey meal

Fantastic lunch! The kale salad with blackened shrimp was the best ever. The process they use of blending the kale with dressing, bread crumbs and parma was amazing! Great service!

Expensive.

Steak was fabulous!

Cesar salad for two was soggy.

French fries tastes as though they had been sitting for awhile. Not hot and crispy.

The selection of wines by the glass was very limited.

Wait staff was very friendly.

We were looking for a new place closer to home , to make our go to restaurant in Bluffton. Our current go to place is on the island and a bit of a drive. Not sure this will be our new spot.

Tatiana was a GREAT server. Very informative. We celebrated our 14 year anniversary that night and she made it very special. We loved everything we ate, especially the table side salad and the Porterhouse for 2. The ONLY negative was that for the bananas foster dessert, we found it lacking as it was only 1 banana (very small one) that we split and it was supposed to be a dessert for 2. We are from NOLA and while the flavors were there, it was just dissapointing to us. Thanks for making it a memorable night!

Sorry, but we were very disappointed with the food. Overpriced and off the wall menu that needs attention. The grouper was a lonely piece of fish on an empty place except for some thick cream sauce painted on the edge of the plate. Wasn't good. Spouse had the lamb. Very expensive. Sorry, but I will not go there again unless they get a new menu.

Except for the high price and the lack of special gluten free versions, it was amazing! My husband and I split the NY strip steak, which is too big for one person...normally. It was a little red for medium-well, but tasted wonderful. We also shared the scallop appetiser...which was very good, but only 2 large scallops. The Chef produced a surprise bite, and he made mine gluten free. That was nice. My husband had the brownie cooked in a cast iron pan, with yummy melting ice cream on top...and loved it. I have never seen a tiny little pan that small in my life...
Overall, I would recommend, but be aware it is difficult for 2 to dine under $100...

This restaurant never disappoints. This time was even more special. We had several leftovers we asked to be packed up to enjoy at home. They weren’t immediately brought to our table, so unfortunately we left without them. When we got home we called the restaurant, they offered to drive them over to our house!! Now that’s what I call exceptional service!

We celebrated my wife's birthday with friends. The booth requested was made available for us. Service was, as usual excellent . This is the only local place to get a Caesar salad made at the table. Their grilled artichokes and grilled octopus is outstanding and are not available anywhere else. Our only complaint was that the grouper special was underdone. Would we go back ...ABSOLUTELY!
