My husband and I just had dinner here for our anniversary and our experience was wonderful. Our waiter Jameson was fantastic. He was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. I could not have asked for a better experience. The food was delicious. I loved the creme brulee it was perfect. You can really tell that there is attention to detail on everything. We would highly recommend coming here.

MAKE RESERVATIONS! I checked Trip Adviser reviews and several said if we went between 5 and 6 pm no reservations were needed. Got there at 5:30 and was told reservations were recommended and we'd have to be seated in the Sushi Bar. It wasn't a problem though.

The bread with spreads was delicious. My husband ordered grilled salmon and was amazed. He said it was the BEST salmon he'd had since we lived in Anchorage, AK! It was my birthday so I had my traditional filet mignon which was grilled to perfection! We saved room for dessert. He had bread pudding with blueberries (his favorite fruit) and I had the chocolate lava cake.

Our meals were the BEST we have ever had anywhere in our 50 years together!

Supper under the indoor tree softly lighted with twinkle lights woven into the spreading branches. Food was upscale served on white linen. Dress up or not, you'll enjoy the attentive service and food.

My wife took me here for my birthday dinner and it was a really nice place. I really enjoyed the romantic relaxed atmosphere. Food was also very good, we both had sushi and were really pleased with our choice. I definitely recommend this place.

The restaurant is in a shopping mall but do not be deceived by the outside because when you walk in you will say, Yow, at the ambiance. The service was superb with so many waiting on you. The food was one of the best that I have ever had and I have eaten all around the world. I agree with the award winning she crab soup being the best. The bread and three dips were brought to the table really quickly and they were awesome. Our appetizer was, Panhandle Fritto Mesto, with fried grouper cheeks, local oysters, gulf shrimp and fried lemon slices. This had more tastes than you can imagine. The entrees were great. Dessert, Creme Brulee, awesome. Early bird only $52 for two people, great. For all the ambiance, service, taste and quality of food and the price, I rate this restaurant #1.
