Was able to walk right in and be seated. Ordered Seafood and it was delivered quickly. The food was absolutely delicious. The interior is quant and lit to add a romantic feel. Plenty of setting. The staff was friendly and efficient.

Food is great! Service is great! I'm a local in CB and this is one of my very favorite places to dine! Either the manager or owner drop by every table to check on customer experience-love it!

Restaurant highly overrated. The meals were fair. The desert was wonderful. The shrimp cocktail was well worth it for the jumbo shrimp.
