We had crab linguine and mussels. Food was delicious, and quick and fresh. We didn't choose to but you pick your fish from the counter if you are having a fillet. If we'd have been there longer we would have revisited.

Had go there given everything we saw in reviews. Now wish that we hadn't. 5 servers on staff, 1 personality between them. Too busy preening in the mirror to welcome guests. Minimal effort at friendliness, no attempt to make people welcome or walk them through...More

I am unable to answer this question as I am not connected to the restaurant in anyway, and do not know the owners, staff or Management or even live nearby.

Yes babies are definitely welcome at lunch time. I was there with my family and saw two couples with babies and a one had a pram. I can only assume they would not object at dinner time either. If in doubt you can always... More
