    The food AMAZING. We tried the tomato/mozzarella, the Caesar salad, the seared tuna with wasabi and the goat cheese with garlic, olive and peppers on grilled bread. Words cannot describe.

    Tyson is an SOB but he's the realist server you'll get! Ask him his opinion and he'll tell you! Delicious!

    Visit Jocelyn Thur-Sat and then ask her about juicing. She'll get you drunk and get you the best detox you ever had

    Super-terrific tapas along with the best Single Malt selection in Hampton Roads. Ping for the other best kept secret about this place.

    $3 PBR tallboys all day every day. Might be one of the best deals going downtown. Oh yeah, and the food is 100% legit too.
