Love this place. Fantastic food, great atmosphere, service is always amazing and the cocktails are divine. We went all "aqua" tonight with lobster, scallops, ahi tuna and halibut. Always go with a bottle of wine and finish off the night with a dessert and cocktail. You can't go wrong no matter what you order here.
