Has anyone been to Cane and Table yet? Food, prices? I saw some photos of the interior and it looks stunning. We're arriving in 3 weeks and I'm wondering what to expect or order. Thank you for any input !

      We went for dinner last Saturday and were not disappointed! Delicious drinks (Improved Bombo!!), creative hummus with yucca chips, and perfect grouper. Entrees were $20-30 and are meant to be shared by 2 people. Fish of the day was a little on the small side for 2, but came with our choice of two large sides. We didn't leave hungry! Wish I could have tried just about everything on the menu.

      The courtyard is charming, but a little awkward, as Monch mentioned. The owner & manager were working out some issues at the kitchen window. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Overall, a great experience; we'll be back! I think they open at 5:30 every day.

        Drinks were stunning, but food service seems to be bumpy.

        (Witnessed the chef talking to the owner and suggesting that he (chef) should put in his two weeks...over the way the front of house was being run.)

        No experience on the quality of food, but it looked good.

        We agreed that, at least for now, we perceive it to be a bar and not a restaurant...One couple's observation.

          The fact that the conversation was taking place at all is bad enough, but the fact that owner and chef would have their conversation within earshot of patrons is even worse.

          Perhaps they'll get things ironed out within the next few weeks, but your experience seems like a really bad omen.

            We were in the courtyard and the kitchen is back there. If you're familiar with the space, it was Pravda and the courtyard housed their turtle pond.

            In any event, the chef was so frustrated with the extablishment's lack of understanding of "his" concept of service management that he chose to have the conversation "right then and there".

            Awkward.

              Oh dear! I'll be there in 2 weeks and will certainly stop in for a drink. It seems like maybe they were rushing to open in time for the Tales of the Cocktail and maybe got a little ahead of themselves!
              I'll be sure to report back !

                Please do.

                I cannot say enough about the deliciousness of the cocktails.

                We had put Cane and Table on our "must" list and were NOT disappointed.

                Stop in for a drink!

                Right next to Coop's.

            Yeah I keep checking for that site to be up, but nothing so far. I had come across this, so I'm thrilled at the prospect of the interior and patio at the very least !!
