Hidden gem. The best service we have ever had. The hostess greeted us warm and friendly. Immediately found us the perfect seat. It's in an old house, so the dining areas are a little chopped up, but that adds to the charm. We could peer...More

We came here on Cinco de Mayo and the place was packed. We were disappointed by the 2 hour wait, but came back for brunch the next day. It was seriously worth the wait! The food, drinks, ambiance, staff were all great! Being from Florida,...More
