Christa S., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on April 27, wrote, "This restaurant by far, exceeded expectations and I will continue to not only visit myself, but with family and friends that come to town. The crawfish soufflé, was extremely tasty and blew me away! I highly recommend getting the oysters and calamari for an appetizer. I also recommend the coconut cake and the chocolate dessert."
