This has great food and wonderful service. The wait staff is engaging and knowledgeable. We had seafood that was well prepared. Eating outdoors should have been chilly, but they had strategically placed heaters that made it fun for a change.

Our group of six thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here. Service was prompt and attentive, and our server was very likeable also. Food met expectations and I'd recommend it for fine dining. It's lively - great ambiance.
