We love it here! Lillian treats us like family, Constantine is an attentive server and the food is always excellent! It's a busy little pace, so I might recommend a reservation, especially on the wk-end. The seafood bisque is a must!

Found this restaurant and were we surprised. The menu was great and our server, Dmitry was terrific. The 3 of us enjoyed the borscht. I had a grouper special served on a bed of spinach with tomatoes and roasted peppers. The fish was flavorful and...More
