An array of color, flavors and textures that will take you on a culinary adventure. I know, sounds like a cheesy caption for a food porn photo, but it's true. Professional and friendly service, memorable ambience (esp. if you can get a table by river walk) and a variety of wines ... The only criticism i can conjur up is that the backs of their chairs were not the most comfortable. I loved the texas shrimp, lamb merguez sauaage with preserved lemon, house made hunmus and fried chickpeas. But the menu changes daily.

I had an amazing beef tenderloin here. We were two persons and had no reservations — they still have room for us on a Saturday evening.

Overpriced. Over portioned. Big lack of creativity. Seems like the chef has lost his passion. Food sucked. Service was ok. Mushroom appetizer was enormous. Tasted good, but was literally a huge pile of sauteed mushrooms. Chicken entree was overcooked. Ribeye was served on a searing hot fajita skillet so it was overcooked by the time i got halfway through and dry. Tasted good, but tough and dry. Potatoes au gratin were extremely salty. Brussel sprouts were borderline burnt. Green beans were swimming in oil. Onion rings tasted like a funnel cake. The vision and forethought is missing. Biga waste of money.

I highly recommend this if you are in the area or passing through. I went with a group of foodie type, executive business men and we loved it so much we went back two nights in a row. We had Chris(he's been there 17 years) as our waiter and he was outstanding. We tried a wide array of food like we usually do on business trips. We tried the pot stickers, chicken fried oysters, venison, quail, pork tenderloin, beef tenderloin, bouillabaisse soup, red snapper, rack of lamb, crab stuffed mahi maho, grand marnier soufflé, sticky toffee pudding, 4 different bottles of wine, different portos, the honey and lavender ice cream(always made in house) assorted sorbets and ALL was fantastic. The wine expert on staff did great at suggesting wine the second night there as well. On Friday and Saturday they offer half size portions and at a lower price for that size. I recommend this over Bella in the River as well as any other restaurant with at least 4 stars which is why I give this place 5 stars on quality, quantity and service.
