Many aspects of our meal were wonderful. The pork just happened to be fatty and tough piece. Over half of it was still on the plate but the waiter didn’t ask/see that something was wrong. We cleaned everything else up. Loved the pecan pie!

Unfortunately, this was a disappointing experience; while the food was very good; the service was underwhelming; our server seemed distracted and inattentive and had to be prompted repeatedly for things like napkins, silverware, and water. The staff in general seemed inconvenience with our presence and were less than responsive.

Hi April, Thanks for dining with us and for your review. We are so sorry that we seemed to miss a few marks during your visit. Our menus have moved exclusively to QR codes because we can no longer offer reusable menus to our guests. So sorry if this left you with a negative first impression.

Unfortunately we had a miserable experience. The service was sketchy and our food took so long we were rushing at the end to try and eat as the restaurant was closing. As a consultation for the screw up they gave us a cheap glass of champagne.
Was NOT worth the money. They should have told us our food was delayed, but they missed that opportunity.

The ambiance was relaxed and interesting giving a relaxed feel to this place . I definitely would return to try more dishes. The gazpacho was refreshing. One person went for steak while the other went to the ocean and had Cod both delightful. Service was well-timed and friendly, wine recommendation was superb and came with a delightful tale of its history. A memorable 34 wedding anniversary which was delightful in a restaurant handling the pandemic with class and care. Thank you for a delightful evening!
