This is our second time giving this place a try because of the view we wanted to try again to see if they had an off night the first time we went. We regret going back the second time it was worse then our first experience. With a reservation we waited for over 45 minutes to be seated inside when we reserved an outside table. The salmon came out completely raw, waitress never came back to check on our meal my fiancé took my salmon to the bar to get someone’s attention to recook it. The service was horrible it took over an half hour to get one drink order. For the prices they are charging they food quality and service does not match the type of restaurant they are trying to have.

Disappointing. Service was not great. And the value was not there for the meal. We ordered two appetizers to start potato chips and dip $14 and a Mediterranean platter since there was 4 of us dining. The chips and the pita bread were sparse and we had quite a bit of both dips left over. When we asked for more pita bread the response was that they would bring us additional pita bread however they would charge us. 20 minutes later 4 pieces of pita arrived and when the bill arrived they added $6.00.
I know restaurants have been severely impacted by the pandemic however a few pieces of complimentary bread with a smile would have amounted to a larger tip for the waitstaff who are the people that were the ones severely impacted by restaurant closures. I will not return.

We went for son graduation lunch, second time here but unfortunately disappointed. Wife ordered a Fluke but asked for gluten free, waitress took order with no issue. It was not until 40 mins later when entire table of entrees was ready that she was told the fish is already pre-coated and cannot be gluten free. Waitress apologized and said chef just told her now, she asked if she wanted something else but wife passed on other options. Although it is suspect when a fish restaurant cannot make a fish dish gluten free, it is not unusual and she would have just ordered something else if she was told upfront. This is really poor communication and service, could have been chef’s fault but does not matter. It made for an unpleasant experience on a special occasion, and the restaurant is pricey on top of it. The food was overall good, enjoyed my pasta and dessert. The location is also very nice. I just expect more from a place like this, and no manager or hostess came by to apologize but they were probably not even aware.

Waitress was a little rude, rolled her eyes when we asked to take cheese and lettuce off burger and they did it wrong too. Food over priced for what it is. Out of the entree I wanted to order.

They confirmed our reservation would be outdoors. When we arrived they said it would be a 45 min wait. They had no desire to adhere to any covid restrictions or if guests felt uncomfortable. Wouldn’t seat us in EMPTY tables away from
Others. Was a factory of just packing people inside. Hostesses were all RUDE

Food was cold. 2 bugs on table.

This place has so much potential. Maybe bc it’ was the first full summer weekend but what a disaster. Booked at 9pm reservation got seated an hour later. No one knew what was going on. They need to figure out a better system .

Normally we don’t have any issues at this place and it’s one of our go to places but last night was a different.
We arrived for our 8:30 reservations and was told we would have to wait 30-45 minutes and that they were talking to their manager to assist with the situation. I checked in again a few minutes later to enquire about having a drink in the out door area and was there was no bar outside. Apparently the person who I originally spoke to did not check us in when we arrived. I confirmed my number with the second hostess. I checked in again 45 minutes later and the hostess said she could tell us how much longer we would have to wait but would call me when the table was ready. By this time it was all past 9:30 so we left but never received a call or text from the restaurant.

Be prepared to be patient; they do not have enough staff and are in very high demand. The manager was working just as hard as all the other staff on the floor. Aside from that, the food and cocktails are expertly prepared, as we’ve come to expect.

The Tiki atmosphere on the dock is very nice although it was hot without an umbrella at our table.

The waitress was extremely nice.

The menu is limited and priced at the very top for the food.

Quality is ok - but atmosphere and waitress made the visit enjoyable.

Without the “dock” atmosphere I would go elsewhere.

First time back in over a year. Very disappointed with quality of food. Poor value for cost as well.
Greek salad for $16 had maybe the equivalent of one tomato with three small pieces of cucumber. Very strange “swordfish” tacos basically swordfish salad in mini taco shells. Found no actually pieces of swordfish. Tuna burgers fairly bland. Had higher hopes... oh well. Not worth another visit.

I love this place. The restaurant is beautiful. The food is always delicious. I hope they will have more fish/seafood on menu (updated Crab Louis, soft shells, fish francaise )
Best service from on point, fun and engaging bartenders

The service is what stands out here - from hostess to servers to a very engaged manager who stepped right in when we had a minor food issue (very minor - not enough pita with Mezzas appie). Waterfront atmosphere is beautiful and interior decor reflects it. Buffalo broccoli appie great, chick sandwich was also very good. Wine list is very nice as well.

Even with a reservation we had to wait 25 minutes to get seated. Once we actually got a table, someone dropped off water glasses (which were never filled) and a waiter never came by to greet us or take our order. After 15+ minutes of being ignored, we got up and left. We couldn’t even tell you how the food was because we never got to experience it but the menu was highly priced with what looked like small portion sizes.

Went for our sons birthday. Beautiful place, great food and service. It started to thunderstorm and rain about 20 minutes into our dinner and they graciously found seating for us inside, even though it was very busy inside. We will definitely be coming back!

Menu is very limited. They were out of chicken. The “fish tacos” are actually stale tuna fish tacos. Food was mediocre. They need to work on the menu and food quality to match the ambiance of the water view! 1 star
