“service is always terrible”
Reviewed 30 November 2006

Living in Gloucester, we eat here maybe once a month. The food is usually good, that is why we go back, but the service is terrible. The hostess couldn't be bothered to the point of being rude. The waitstaff would rather be somewhere else, and to get one of the bartender's attention you have to stand in front of her. But again the food is mostly good so we'll endure the horrible service for convenience.

“We would eat here anytime”
Reviewed 22 September 2006

The food and service was excellent. We have dined in Gloucester for the last 12 years for our vacation week in August. This last August was our first visit and we are already looking forward to our visit next summer and another wonderful dining experience.

“Nice Place!”
Reviewed 22 November 2005

We just happened to be in Gloucester on a Saturday in September and found this lovely restaurant for lunch. The place is very stylish, and the food was great, too!
