Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Great experience. The Asian spring roll appetizer had 6 pieces with a sweet/spicey sauce. The Romaine heart salad and BLT salad were great too. Shared the Chilean Sea Bass with the hubs and added the sautéed garlic. YUM! I don't really like fish but it was delicious!

“A+ food and service”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

First I must compliment the Chef who went above and beyond his responsibility by treating myself and my guest with complimentary lunch when he forgot to add message to answering machine that they had discontinued lunch service on Thursday. He was very sincere in his apology and invited 6 of us to complimentary lunch. Having eaten there many times prior we were happy to accept and as always enjoyed excellent service and wonderful food. My favorite is the "QUAIL", grilled to perfection and accompanied by a choice of delicious sides. The wine list extensive and reasonably priced. As a full time resident of this area I can list it as one of my favorites.

“A beach surprise! Wonder all the way around”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

We visit Destin about once a year and decided to branch out a bit from our usual haunts. This bistro was wonderful. Excellent wine choices, we has the crabmeat eggplant appetizer. I had the spinach salad with Walnut bacon dressing and goat cheese. My entree was the roasted chicken. All were amazing. I highly recommend this place but bring you checkbook. Excellent service and great live music.

“Great service and terrific food!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Went based on reviews of happy hour and they didn't disappoint. Jamie was PHENOMENAL as was Dominick! Several great drinks on happy hour menu inlcuding a pear flower martini and mojitos, beer; Abita strawberry and wines. We tried the Spicy Garlic fries, fried green tomato w/ brie and crawfish, margharita pizza and the chilled King Crab claws. All were superb and I would recommend all of them. Jamie was attentive, friendly and made this by far the best meal of our trip on top of the food being delish. Thank you for such great service, that is so hard to find these days. Wish we had tried this place sooner. Definitely go!

“Great Happy Hour”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We visited Destin this week and went to this restaurant on Tuesday evening. We had heard that the Happy Hour was great and were not disappointed. We sat at the bar and were served by Melody (I hope that's right). She was pleasant and helpful. There is a long happy hour - 5 til 9 and lots of specials on drinks and appetizers. The spring rolls were very good; especially the dipping sauce. Since we were there during the week there was not a large crowd and the service was great. Would love to go again.
