Natalee and I had been traveling all weekend and just wanted a nice meal. Easy choice-we drive down to LMay Eatery and consumed a delicious meal, a nice glass of wine and had the pleasure of many friends. It doesn't get much better than LMay!

Food is very good, service is good. Some times it is too crowded, tables are very close so there is no opportunity for a private conversation.

The food is excellent and the staff is wonderful. The restaurant is decorated very nicely. They have a great wine list and the desserts are "to die" for. It is just down right excellent.

I like everything about this place except they really jam you in and you don't have any privacy from others unless you are lucky and get a table in the corner. The food and service are fantastic.

The prices are so high that most people would be excluded. For the price, it should be easy to serve great food, but my three visits in the past 12 months have disappointed my guests and me.

The service and food are quite well done. The prices somewhat expensive, but worth it for a nice night out with good tasty food in a pleasant setting. We have been there a number of times and don't hesitate about returning.

The atmosphere and everyone that works here is super nice and accommodating. I struggle to figure out what to order. The mussels were fishy, I wouldn't order them again. Maybe just a bad night, hard to say. The steaks are the best at this place.
