Have enjoyed this restaurant for many years. Food is consistently good as well as the service. Had the beet salad and the shrimp risotto. Both were delicious. We usually eat at the bar but decided we wanted a more intimate dinner in the dining section. We were not disappointed!

We felt cheated by the description of ‘bayside / harborside’ dining. A more accurate description might be ‘conveniently located on a busy highway with a bus stop right outside the door’

I had made a reservation for the dining area but when we got there I was told it was full. We did not want to sit in the bar because it is hard to have a conversation. We ate out on the patio which was nice but we couldn't hear any music at all. That was disappointing.

We were sitted in the outside patio by the hostess. Never given menus. Waited 15” but no one ever came to wait on us so we left.

Bad experience. Went to Waterline. Much better!

We got off to a bad start because we were seated at a table and then we sat and watched other people being seated and served drinks before anyone even approached our table. I finally had to catch the attention of the other waiter.
The food was good and we enjoyed the live music.
