Our server, Taylor, was super cool, and nice and friendly. The lunch fare however, was just ok. Friend had the chicken sw, I had the turkey wrap, supposed to have avocado something, cream, it was very dry. I brought the other half home, and there was no dressing or avocado on it. Lovely place, lovely server, I have read rave reviews about this chef, and deli turkey without the avocado, is not a good lunch. Taylor, however was a super server, and I took care of her. Food, just OK. Like the 3.50 house wine!

Anxious to try this "new" restaurant, mostly because everything Chef Keith created at Trabue was wonderful.
Dining room was too noisy to be able to converse at our table for four.
Menu was broad and interesting...I chose the special of the evening: red grouper on grits with cajun etouffee. The grouper was outstanding, grits perfectly done, but cajun sauce totally overwhelmed the flavor of this popular, local delicate fish. Would have preferred a key lime beurre blanc sauce with asparagus or hericot vert. Or a blood orange hollandaise with either vegetable.
We were the last patrons in the restaurant at 8:30 and the staff started vacuum/sweeping the dining room while we were still finishing our meals and drinks.
They turned up the volume on the music so once again, we were unable to have a conversation.
Will definitely go back to see how the menu develops as this restaurant goes through expected growing pains and hopefully gets on top of all the issues.
Have confidence in Chef Keith!

WOW! Best Prime Rib I've ever had hands down. The place is gorgeous, the food second to none, and the staff are courteous and accommodating! You can't not try this place out if you are in town. I'll be back with family and friends!

The meals were excellent espcially the pate' and black bean soup. Service was friendly and timely. We love restaurants with outside seating which of course they had. We will go back again.

My husband and I were in Punta Gorda for a night away from home nearby. Our dinner at FM Don's was outstanding. Waiter AJ made the experience the best in his ability to really listen and guide us to great choices as well as socialize a bit. We started with the warm goat cheese spread with apricot glaze and warm pita bread, moved on to sharing a wedge salad with big chunks of blue cheese and bacon. The Pappardelle with pork was outstanding as were the scallops. We sat outside on the side terrace and experience a cool breeze with quiet space for conversation. We highly recommend this fine establishment which just changed hands and underwent a name change and renovation with good effect.
