Took some friends for their Anniversary, unfortunately the weather would not co-operate so we could not sit on the deck but the view even from inside is spectacular. The food is unforgettable all fresh from local farms.

We had not been back here since the hurricane and was looking forward to the new menu. One of the highly recommended dishes was the home made pasta and braised short ribs. The meat and mushrooms in the dish were delicious, however, after touting that the pasta was home made - there were maybe 8 pieces in the dish and they were stuck together and undercooked! Also everyone felt their dinner was over salted. The service and drinks were great. I think the place could get a bit loud if busy. Too much hard surfaces with the new furniture. The manger did remove the charges for the pasta dishes, but it was a disappointment.

Ambiance, food and service was very good- by the beach location with ocean view cannot be beat. Menu has grown to be more eclectic but also includes traditional dishes, including the chicken Milanese and grilled grouper dishes we had. Small dishes also available for some items. Starter salad and appetizer were very good. Service provided by Amy(hope spelling is correct)was excellent. Price - moderately expensive. Value for what we had - very high.

Most enjoyable dinner. Great find . Few restaurants with a view of the sea equal to this one. Menu is exceptional as well as the preparation and presentation. Service is excellent; friendly; and knowledgeable. Only downside is the noise level. A birthday party was underway during our visit and the sound level was high. All-in, a great additional to the First Coast. We will be back!

I thought this was an Italian restaurant? What a joke? Just because you have olive oil and bread doesn't make it an Italian restaurant. Food was blah. Service was terrible. Prices were high for what you get.
Won't be back.

Homemade pasta was fabulous and service was very good. Restaurant and menu need a facelift. Steak was marginal which is why I gave a lower food rating.

The scenery was beautiful, the staff was amazing, and the food was incredible. A word of caution, however. The ascetics of the food are a bit on the exotic side. While it was prepared extremely well and tasted amazing, the look of it was catering to a someone with more of an exotic and adventuresome spirit than I have. If you're looking for an entirely unique experience with a great atmosphere, and an amazing view, this is the place to go.

Great atmosphere with a great view. The swordfish was to die for and the pastas are all handmade on site. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and it was a very relaxed but nice atmosphere. They had some live music going downstairs which was a nice added touch.

A pleasant evening enjoyed. View of the ocean waves speaks for itself but we most enjoyed the ambiance and relative quiet for a Friday night. Away from the crowds! Service was attentive, not pressured, food presentation was both delicious and interesting. We'll return.

Got there there was only one other party there and they were loud. The menu didn't have too many choices, I ordered a soft drink and it was flat my wife ordered a sweet tea and it tasted bad so she returned it... We ordered dinner and it tasted horrible, I had the pork chop and she had the short ribs... We are used to dinning at lots of restaurants and I got to say this is one of the worst.....

Very nice. Enjoyed our evening and we'll be back. If we can offer some thoughts:
• There needs to be more than two fish options, particularly if the menu stays with grouper and swordfish.
• A high-end restaurant should have draft beer and ales.
• The server should determine early on if the party wants to have a few drinks before ordering. We got the impression that you were trying to move tables (and maybe you were.)

We love to come out to Ocean 619! The view is spectacular. We brought friends this time who had never been. They were very impressed!! The food was good, but not as great as usual. The restaurant was very cold.
All in all it was very nice and I would definitely come back.
Our friends are from the Jersey Shore Area and they loved it!!

The new menu presented this year is far superior to what was offered in the past. The primary emphasis is on Italian cuisine but there are many non Italian dishes to choose from. All of the furnishings have been replaced and are very pleasing to the eye. Seats are also comfortable.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on May 28, 2017

The view was gorgeous but the food was very disappointing. The bread and homemade crackers were both underbaked. Our entrees were sea scallops and they were full of grit. The wine was ridiculously overpriced. The service was very accommodating, however. The glass of red wine that my husband ordered was stale tasting as the bottle was opened too long and when we told the server, she had the bartender open a new bottle, which was nice. I complained about my entree and she offered to bring me something else, which they did free of charge, so I can't complain about the service. The bathrooms were located downstairs in their more casual restaurant but when you entered the downstairs restaurant, it smelled like fried grease. 2 of the 3 toilets were not flushing. All in All, it was a truly disappointing experience and we would not return. We were considering joining the Cabana Club since we live in the area so we decided to try the restaurant first since this is where we would be spending our money. Needless to say, we will not be joining based on this experience.

The view is spectacular, food delicious but the service was slow. We had to ask for things more than once, waited for check and then waited to pay. We had 2 servers but both disappeared at times. We were a party of 8 so they should have been close by. Also would recommend having a cocktail menu.

The atmosphere is beautiful. Great to have a pleasant dinner while looking at ocean and beach activity. Not having an easier access to dining room is a big negative. No rest rooms upstairs is another big negative. Being told we could eat downstairs on patio was a real turn off. They didn't need to be ADA for upstairs, indoor dining. Server was great for service was slow.

There were 6 of us, and we really didn't care for the menu. When the food came it was not very good. It was disappointing because the food at this restaurant used to be very good. There was a large and very noisy group there and we couldn't even carry on a conversation. The staff was not very friendly. We will not return. It's too bad because it's a great location with a wonderful view.

I was visiting the Ponte Vedra area for the first time and we found this on Open Table. It has a very nice and calm atmosphere with beautiful ocean views. The menu was varied and everything was presented with creativity. The food tastes great. We had the seared scallops with gnocchi and the short ribs. Both plates are awesome. The service was friendly and we can't complaint.
