“Nice Little Place !!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

I was so excited to dine here. My husband had been before as he is doing business in area. He promised me a nice romantic dinner with him when I traveled with him next time. We had an 8 PM reservation on a Tuesday night. When we got there it was packed. I wanted a romantic candle lite table .. but we were seated in a back roon that was a little bright for my taste and had all of 4 tables - 2 of which were occupied. Fortuantly they left when we ordered and we had the room to ourselves! Our waiter was great. The menu is really nice. The Chef made carbonara for my husband that was not on the menu .. he had done it before. It looked good and was tasty. I had the special - which was seabass. It was a bit fishy actually. The salads and appetizers and dessert were all great! I will go back and next time do a pasta dish Over all I really liked this little gem!!

“Exceptional dining outdoors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Except for the location near the highway, the outdoor dining experience was amazing. The bread was soft, warm and tasty. The meal was delicious and too much to finish. The wait staff were attentive but not intrusive.

While dining, we had the pleasure of observing hummingbirds around the garden's flowers.
