A wonderful add to Chestnut Hill and surroundings, this is a relatively upscale choice. Yes, located in a sort of strip mall, but at secluded end, with indoor-outdoor dining, near another nice restaurant and a wine store. The food is very good (all dishes a...More

This restaurant is a fantastic place to eat. The service is elegant and friendly, the presentation is relaxed but formal at the same time. The food is seasonal and exquisite. The chopped seafood salad appetizer is a good portion that is great on the palate....More

The menu has some intriguing selections from the chopped shrimp and crab salad to the well-prepared snapper. One of our party had the lamb that was excellent. The desserts are also varied and lovely. The pluses are the BYO part, the server Danielle, and the...More
