In the past, food and service have been impeccable. However, for Mother's Day, this was not the case. Our waitress was not present. She never asked how our food was, we could never find her to ask for more water, she didnt seem to be able to answer simple questions about the menu. Overall not good service. Our food was lukewarm. The quality of the fish was there, but since it was lukewarm it was not desirable. We were very surprised and disappointed by this experience at Anthony's.

Service was OK but despite the restaurant being quite empty, we felt rushed to leave as we finished our meal. We shall not be returning.

Luckily, I was able to get reservations that day for 8pm. I'll be honest, going to new places as a black man there's always that thought in the back of your mind, "I wonder how we'll get treated here?". From the moment we arrived, everyone was very nice and welcoming. The host even asked if we didn't mind waiting a moment, he'd get us a table by the window...on Valentine's Day? Couldn't ask for better service there. The waiter was nice and attentive. When I asked him about the wine list, he admitted he was not well versed in the selection but would bring over a manager to assist. The manager, George, could not have been a nicer guy. My date described what type of wine she likes and George's recommendation was spot on! Wine was delicious and would definitely order again (it was the Chateau Montelena Riesling 2019). Not too sweet and not too dry. Nice, crisp, and refreshing which paired very well with our dinner. We started with the fried Calamari. Simply delicious! More calamari than breading which I like. I hate when you order fried seafood and you're eating more flour than fish. My date ordered the Lobster A la Hawthorne. It's a stuffed lobster with bread crumbs and baked potato on the side. The medium was more than enough. I ordered the Swordfish with Jasmin Rice. We also tried their amazing marinated mushrooms and hot out of the oven pop overs. The only thing that was disappointing about our dinner was the rice. Than again, I come from a culture that eats it everyday, so I have high expectations when it comes to good rice. Would try a different side next time. All in all, the service was impeccable. Everyone was so professional, but not robotic like some places. Made you feel like you were in one of those old school Italian restaurants and the Rat Pack are a few tables over. Waiter, host, manager, and door man were all great. I didn't go into the amazing view because at night, with the indoor lights, outside

The restaurant had a warm and elegant vibe. It had a gorgeous view of the ocean with large windows, but since it was 7pm in the winter, diners couldn't see much except for outside lights. I asked for a cocktail list, but there was none. (I appreciate seasonal cocktails and drink specialties.) The waiter was mediocre. My friend is medically gluten free which she explained to the waiter. When her salad came, it had croutons on it. She politely asked for a new salad and the waiter told her to just take the croutons off. Totally Unacceptable. He brought a new one (hopefully). The food was very good, but very pricey.

Speaking of our New Year’s Evening dining we initially spoke of the ambiance; Quiet, formal, scenic ocean views. Little addressed is the importance of the server. We have experienced inquiries pursuant of menu items to be very knowledgeable. Friendly, smiling, appropriate conversation a plus. Signature Pop Overs, always perfectly created. An excellent accompaniment we look forward to being served. The main event;entrees, variety of sea and meat offerings caters to both preferences. Prepared by chef’s of scholarship.

Food was good though definitely overpriced. Portions were small except for the baked stuffed lobster. The experience overall was special because I dined with my spouse.
