This place has the best cioppino and scallops. Their bread is phenomenal. Their lobster bisque is fantastic. Portions aren't big but they are quality. Their breakfast buffet is also great. Don't miss the Gouda potatoes.

The restaurant setting was ideal to catch with our friends. The service was perfect and allowed for a leisurely 2 hour lunch they had a nice buffet but we elected to order from the menu. The food was excellent and the Mimosas tasty.
