Went for Sunday brunch. Got there at 11 just when they opened. We were seated immediately. Restaurant is lovely.eggs Benedict were good. Bloody Mary's were expensive for brunch. We were done by 11:30 which is great if you wanted to get to beach!

The prices are high, but the food quality matches the price. We ate out on the "back porch", which is open air and charming. The four of us each had different food and we were all happy with our choices.

We experienced one of our best ever meals last evening at this lively bistro-like eatery during Restaurant Week, which featured $45 prix fixe meals.

You will have no trouble finding the restaurant since it has been in business over 40 years. It is a "fine dining" experience for both lunch and dinner. The wine list is extensive. The cooking is flavorful, creative and thoroughly enjoyable. Please include this in your listings.
