"Seriously, this is a seafood place for foodies. Everything single thing my table of five tried was just delicious. Appetizers, entrees, desserts, even side dishes. Honestly, we cleaned every plate, and there were some picky eaters in our crew.
We had steak, Thai lobster, macadamia nut crusted fish, grilled swordfish - everything delicious! The child even ate his dinner of chicken nuggets. The asparagus and the potatoes vanished. The desserts, a strawberry-rhubarb crisp, and a chocolate mousse "bombe" were devoured.
This place is VERY busy, and VERY noisy. Forget quiet conversation. Solid wine list. Good cocktails. Waiters a bit harried but they sure try hard. Note: I thought the traditional Thai seasoning overpowered the lobster.

"A lovely little Portugese restaurant located on the lower level of an office building. Charming decor, good service, good food, and reasonable prices. Altogether a really good combination, and one I think you will enjoy returning to again and again. I intend to.
However, for your first visit, be aware that this is not easy to find. You must aim for the tall office building at this address, not the nearby shopping center. Park just as you would for the office building. Then enter it and head downstairs to the restaurant. Once you have mastered this, it will be easy to find again. Worth the effort. Go.
Oh yes, and enjoy the quiet ambience!! Astonishing, isn't it, that you might actually enjoy the conversation of your table companion(s)?!
