We had an amazing experience here. The atmosphere is gorgeous and tropical, the staff is attentive and courteous, the food is wonderful. Really, I cannot say enough good things about it. Love that they clearly label what is dairy free and gluten free.

Ate on the outdoor patio, great space but didn't like our table. Make sure you get a table away from the sliding door, it is noisy and distracting due to the noise. The food was excellent, rather spendy but delicious.
