The jambalaya was great but there were other meals served to my family and they were all very good. The owner Ivan is as much a worker as any. Donte was our waiter and I must say he was amazing. prefessional and fun. His suggestions were spot on. Very good experience.

Order appetizers, waiting time more than an hour. When asked to know status of our order they tell us it was going to take more time.

The food is incredible. We got pasta and seafood and the trifongo as an appetizer. It was to die for. We'll be coming back to get it again. Ivan is great, the service is fast and friendly.

We weren't disappointed the service was excellent and the food was even better. I had the jambalaya and my wife had the Dorado with Mango sauce. Both were excellent. Highly... More
