Red Fish was a wonderful surprise along with the appetizers! Only been here twice, and this time was better than the last. It's good to know that there's a place like this with such variety! Service was very good.

After an FSU home game we waited to get a seat here. The service was horrible and the food was mediocre. I didn't even like the Decor. Won't go again!

Nice bistro with a pleasant ambiance and engaging staff. Not your usual bar food menu; crab cake sandwich was excellent and the fries were hot. Bartenders pour heavy and the prices are excellent. Not fine dining but worth a visit for a quality meal.

We stopped here on Sunday around noon. They only had breakfast food available. My son had the Bulkin Omelette. He said it was very good. The wait staff was adequate. Not rude but not really friendly. The interior was dark. Would not visit again.
