It was great while it lasted but the restaurant has closed. The fish market, however, is still open. The restaurant that has taken over at this location is Cilantro's...authentic Puerto Rican food. Really good!

Excellent food, very friendly service! I'm allergic to shellfish, so I ordered the fettuccine alfredo with chicken. It was superb! Definitely a house-made sauce. Everyone else said their food was wonderful, as well!

Wasn't sure what to expect, decor wasn't elaborate but clean. The food was excellent to match with our service. I loved my parmesan crusted cod. My friend had a pasta dish with shrimp which she really enjoyed.
