We finally have a very good restaurant in West Knoxville. Used to go tom the downtown location but now can park easily at this location. They can be very busy at times so I recommend reservations. We haven't had anything that was not exceptional yet.

We were a group of six people for dinner. Everyone agreed that food was tasty and plentiful. I had the scallops which were very good. If I come back to Knoxville, I will try to go there again!

They usually always have Fresh Salmon and other special fish like North Atlantic Swordfish. They get a lot of whole fresh red snapper grouper, and Yakatat Halibut. All delicious.
