Not sure what all the hype is about. Had dinner here this past Friday night. Got seated right away. Cute, small restaurant but very relaxed atmosphere. That is what we enjoyed. Our waitress was great also.

Absolutely delicious dinner and delightful service. We had the fresh fish and it was incredibly fresh and well-prepared.
