    Had a great experience but the server was horrible. Had to get our own drinks at the bar multiple times. Still gave 20% tip but I believe that server will hurt your business.

    My partner and I went to celebrate our friend's 93rd birthday with her daughter. Wanted a special dining experience for this special occasion. Our dining experience exceeded our expectations, which were high based on previous reviews. We sat outside in the corner, which was less noisy than the rest of the area as there was a vibrant crowd enjoying their meals. Michael B. was our waiter and he was extremely attentive and friendly, making our 93 year old friend feel it was truly a special evening. Beverages and food arrived with a minimal wait and perfectly prepared. Portions were large enough that we were able to share meals and appetizers. We started with the Edamame and Heaping Bowl of Clams, as well as the Pretzel Bread which was surprisingly delicious. Highly recommend them as they were wonderfully seasoned and fresh. Snapper and Bronzini dinners were delicious, tender and not overly prepared with sauces, so that we were able to enjoy the taste of the perfectly cooked fish. The wine list was varied, so there is a white or red wine by the glass for anyone's preference. We were all pleased with our choices (Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet). Dinner concluded with expresso, coffee and a surprise ice cream and brownie dessert. Will definitely go back and ask for Michael B.

    Nice view, good overall. Seafood is better than the steak. My ribeye was undercooked. My dining companions had good luck with the lobster tails and sea bass. A decent spot, if slightly overpriced.

    Dined on 11/7/2014
    Food still good but gone very pricey. Double the price of cosmos at other high end restaurants. $12.00! Valet jams your car in still and scratches are just a matter of "if not this time next time. ". Once a year is enough. Waitress was good and upbeat. I think since Wyndham took over old Howard Johnson hotel they upped prices.

    The chefs really care about preparing food in a great way. The fish was grilled perfectly, veggies not overcooked, home fries were perfect, etc. Seafood done perfectly. A bit pricey so we only go for special occassions. Also great if it's a nice night & you can sit outside watching the ocean.

    carolesbirthdaybrunch
    Dined on 11/2/2014
    On a beautiful, sunny day, with the temperature just right, a great place for brunch or lunch. Average prices for average food, but excellent, non-intrusive service. However, the outdoor setting is the best thing on the menu when it comes to brunch. The pounding surf, volleyball, sunbathers and people strolling the path before you. The most creative item for me was the lobster eggs benedict. So much lobster with a nicely light, tangy hollaindaise sauce! Recommend the home fries to accompany. Onions, peppers with chunks of righteously pan fried potatoes. Be prepared for valet parking with a required $5 fee, or good luck finding an alternative. All in all, worth any inconvience just for the ambience of the outdoor setting on a good day

    The food was delicious, the drinks were well made. The sushi we ordered was a little heavy in terms of the fried ingredients, but the rolls were unique. Amazing service from our waiter! All the cigarette smoke outside took away from the ambience though. Otherwise, this was a beautiful location, right on the beach.

    After making the reservation and calling the resturant they never informed me of a wedding rehearsal dinner they where holding and the outside was not available and they only have about 3 tables inside the resturant. Also had a plastic piece of something in my salad and manager realy did not care, however she did remove the price of the salad of my bill.

    Great, fresh, well prepared seafood. Chef has real vision. Highly recommended. Outside dining the best, but can be extremely hot June-Sept. Must request table closest to ocean to get the best tables. If you just request outside dining, you aren't guaranteed the best view. I just moved to Boca Raton in June and have been twice already. Pretty much plan to take any visiting family and friends there for each of their first visits to the area.

    Great location.. right on the beach, you can feel the ocean breeze. Our server was great. We were celebrating our anniversary, and he was very accommodating. (I had called the hostess in advance to send over a special dessert, but she didn't relay it to the waiter. He fixed it though.) However, I found the food to be very expensive, and the bill can add up quickly. Also, it was a bit loud from the bass next door at JB's.

    The ambiance is one of a kind over looking the ocean. I defiantly recommend this location due to its service, great food and location. I ordered the grouper with crab meat which was outstanding. Their seafood food is amazing. I typically order what is on special as for it is always a good option and really fresh. I enjoy coming to this restaurant on a date night or with family and friends. I have also been here for business meeting where the atmosphere lends itself to a great experience.

    Always enjoy coming here. We shared the steak and a poached pear salad and it was enough food for the two of us. The steak was especially good. We substituted the sweet potato mashed for the other potato dish and had asparagus instead of the veggie medley, (which is my least favorite tasteless vegetable.) Our waiter, McGee was excellent and very charming. The only negative was the annoying music from next door. A little romantic music playing softly would be a plus here.

    The location is excellent, right on the beach. Outdoor dining here is great. Unfortunately the person i was with didnt want to eat outside as it was a hot day. Insider, there is absolutely NO VIEW! So the dining experience is very different outside vs. inside. The food is good and the service was excellent. The price is about what you would expect to pay for an upscale brunch. I will definitely go back only if I can eat outside......

    Great mohitos at the bar while we waited for our table. Parking was difficult but this was attributed to a holiday weekend. Valet was not available by 6:30 p.m. Bartenders were great! Sat outside, close to walk way with perfect view of the surf. Great breeze! Food did not disappoint - sushi was great and the Pastachio Mahi was fabulous! Will definitely dine again! Service was good too, which was impressive since the restaurant was at capacity on a holiday weekend!

After he asked is for the 5th time I finally told him to stop. When we did order the Grouper special was amazing.

    To start with the positive, our waitress was very helpful and our entrees were delicious, especially the corn& shrimp crusted snapper.We were seated outside and had a great water view. Issues: Two of the three of us were seated immediately, but the third person in our party did not show up for 20 minutes.....a problem with limited valet parking assistance. After dinner, it took another 20 minutes for him to retrieve our car. Parking is definitely a problem on a busy night. . Also we were seated outside near the bar and at times, had trouble hearing each other. We have been here for Brunch and it is, of course, much quieter. We will return, but will choose our day and time with care.
