Wonderful as Ever! Our "Go To" special restaurant and usually our last night in town to punctuate our time in Daytona. The "Merchant of Venice" sparkling drink remains a."must have." So I did, and second. The prosciutto, melon and pearl appetizer is as good or better as any I have had on either side of the Mediterranean. Filet special was... More

The place is very charming and romantic. All of the staff were very pleasant, but the waiter J was a little pretensions. The food was ok. In my opinion everything was covered in some kind of sauce. The fish had a sauce on it. The shrimp had a sauce on it. The meat had a sauce on it. I think... More

We dined three times within the week of January 25 2017, so we could give you a review not based on just one experience. The first evening we were ignored by the restaurant floor manager for the entire evening. (she is a co-owner). Our waiter was totally incompetent. We specifically told him to hold all garnish 3 times during the... More

This is one of the nicest restaurants in DAB; the husband and wife owners provide a lovely experience. In Warren G. Harding's winter home, the "Cellar" is exactly that - a basement that has been converted into a restaurant. The husband cooks, the wife handles the front of house - ask her for her opinions on wines and menu items... More

What a wonderful find. Menu, wine list, and service could not have been better. Set in the basement of President Harding's winter home, the Tiffany glass windows add a unique elegance to the "wine cellar" feel of the dining room. Everything was perfect from start to finish even though it was a very busy night with the Rolex 24 hour... More
