    I ordered an impossible burger without bacon. The food runner brought it out and said “here’s your impossible burger without bacon.” It turns out there actually was bacon on the burger. The restaurant didn’t seem to care. It was my third time eating here and I’m reminded why I didn’t like it the first time. The server was attentive and the environment was chill. Definitely give the place a try but check your food beforehand if you’re vegetarian or have food sensitivities.

    The service & servers are AWESOME! Costeel was wonderful & very attentive. The deviled eggs were very tasty, the sangria was delicious. The burger was way too salty & because they add pork to the mix they cook it med well which I do not like. Barely ate it due to the salt & chewy texture.

    Awesome food. The salmon with sweet potatoes was perfectly done with a hint of hotness that made it perfect. Excellent sangria too. And the deviled eggs were better than any other I have ever had.

    Although the food and service was outstanding, it would be nice to see the chef's obvious talent being used on a few more entree menu items. We thought the number to choose from was low. Again, both food and service were beyond measure!

    Even with a reservation felt like they were rushing us to be out within 45 minutes. The grilled artichoke was mostly inedible, the drink orders were wrong, and all the food came out on top of each other. The music was loud to the point where you couldn’t hear the person across the table from you and the lights were low so that you couldn’t see them. Enjoyed my first time here but will not be back after this.

    The server was inattentive, smelled like cigarettes every time she came to the table and the food was not good. I ordered chicken & waffles, but the butter they put on my waffle was very distasteful and ruined my whole meal.

    We had moules frites and fried green tomatoes. Both were excellent. Our server was very helpful and attentive. They have an excellent bar with about a bizillion gins (my hubbie’s favorite drink!) and Spanish sherry. It is within walking distance from where we are staying. There is nothing not to love about this place.
