Everything was great - Mezze plate, grilled calamari to start. We had three entrees - the seared tuna, chicken pot pie, and halibut. All were great except for the halibut -- very dry and bland. Cute spot for outdoor dining on Greenwich Ave.

What a terrific dining experience! Greeted with enthusiasm at the door, that did not waiver throughout the meal.
Our waitperson was friendly and patient. Starters and dinner were absolutely delicious. Highlights include: Octopus appetizer, Shrimp Ramen and Scallop dinners.
Will definitely return.!
Highly recommend.

Food was very yummy. The menu had a lot of choice and we wanted to try so many things. It was super busy that night so service was a bit slow but overall, a great addition to the Avenue and we will look forward to going back.

The food and presentation were great. But everything about the restaurant experience was too chaotic. There was music blasting into our ears. The tables were slanted and so our drinks kept sliding. The tables were also small so we couldn’t organize food properly.

Honestly don’t think I’ve met a host as rude as the one I had to check in with this evening. This guy was combative with my wife after she asked a question about our reservation.

This is the second time I’ve had to deal with this guy. Got brunch here a few weeks ago. Walked up with maybe two of the 20 tables occupied and when I said I didn’t have a reservation he said “Why?”. He sat me and my party thereafter, but no need for this kind of attitude and rudeness.

The mediocre food and Greenwich prices are not worth dealing with this supremely bitter, asshat of a host.

Absolutely wonderful from the moment we walked in the door. Mauricio was very personable and quite the personality. We sat outside before the dinner rush at 5. It was a nice relaxed atmosphere. Our sever Dan was equally conversive and personable. He checked on us frequently without being bothersome. The brussel sprout salad with polenta was fabulous! Sancerre …. My favorite but not everyone carries it was on the menu! Great find for picking and choosing somewhere to dine with all the options around. You won’t be disappointed.

Mother’s Day late lunch. The front room near the bar is VERY loud, but fortunately we were seated in the back room where the atmosphere was fine. Bao buns were a good app. Pork chop was good, filet was very good, though the menu didn’t specify that it included sides and it was not mentioned as I ordered an extra, unnecessary side. The menu is “eclectic” - a combination of Mediterranean, Asian, and American.

It was a beautiful night to sit outside and people watch. Great food, good service, all in all a great night out. It's a little pricey, but for a treat it's well worth it. I ordered the Brussels sprouts salad and the sesame crusted seared tuna which were both delicious!

It seemed like the restaurant was understaffed although there was ample notice from the town that restaurants were opening capacity. It was particularly cold and windy that evening, and the staff were having difficulty getting the outdoor heaters to work as well as obtain our dessert order and check. I ended up going inside to pay. Our server wasn't pleased about that. The food was so-so although the portions were very good. I had a better experience the last time I was there pre-Covid. I realize we all need to be a bit forgiving with Covid, but other restaurants nearby seem to have a better handle on things.

South Bay has been our favorite restaurant - indoor and outdoor - for months. The food is outstanding every time, the service is highly attentive and the ambiance is always fun. The lighting is perfect, with outdoor heat lamps through Covid and dim lighting inside. They have white tablecloths inside which is always nice. The hangar steak, brussel sprouts and grilled calamari are particularly delicious. Highly recommend.

I was pleasantly surprised by everything about this new restaurant. The menu is great and the food was even better. Service was fast and attentive. My wife and I sat inside and the tables we separated by plexiglass dividers, which was nice. The bar looked great and I'm sure it will be lively once things normalize.
