I love the food here...I recommend the Sea Bass Spring Salad and white pizza which are 2 of my favorites. Staff is very pleasant and the manager is very friendly and always willing to accommodate anyone’s request. Overall great environment and dining experience.

Friendly staff and great food. Had the fontina pizza it was great. Our waitress was slow with drinks had to stop her and ask for refill on water. Husband had Chesapeake pasta with chicken and crap. He loves it.

We dropped in here for a quick, but nice lunch. Food was tasty and creative. Nice sized portions and the tastiest rosemary bread ever. Pretty decor with jazz touches. Full bar. I'd definitely go back.
