Value for what was served was not there. Grouper $33 for a piece smaller than the palm of my hand and sea scallops medium size but only 6 on plate for over $30 with a few spinach leaves and a few fingerling potato’s.

My wife & I just were not impressed at all. I have been to restaurants all across the USA and this just was not worth it to me. The food was average at best IMO and for the price, just not a good value.

Our waiter, Robert was excellent. Filet Mignon tender but tasteless, crab cakes too spicy, asparagus undercooked. Mice atmosphere. Perhaps quality suffered as it was Mother's Day crowd. Also advertised piano and did not deliver, no music. Picked it because my mom loves good piano.

My husband and I celebrated Mother’s Day on Saturday night with a delicious meal at Bon Appetit. We both ordered the French Onion Soup and the Lobster Tail dinner. The soup was very thick, cheesy, and tasty. Such a delight! The 8 oz lobster tail was succulent. It was served with finger potatoes and asparagus. To complete our dinner, we ordered a slice of key lime pie, which was refreshing. Bon Apetit never disappoints. The service was excellent also.

my husbands lobster tail was not cooked through so he sent it back. Instead of giving him a new lobster tail ( must say at almost $40) they just heated the one he was eating. I think a restaurant like this should have given him a new meal.

Brought our grandmother to celebrate her college graduation. She and my spouse greatly enjoyed their meals; however, I thought my lobster role was not up to par.

Michael, our waiter, was a gem.

We had asked for good water view seating and, again, did not receive it. Since our granddaughter is from Virginia and loves the water/beach, we were quite disappointed.

Fantastic dining experience ! Went here with friends for our last night in Clearwater Beach. Was looking for a well-rated, waterfront restaurant to see the gorgeous west coast sunset and this restaurant far surpassed our expectations. We initially were seated outside but it was so windy we moved inside, which I would recommend if you are looking for a more formal dining experience with white glove (and napkin) service! Each of the four food selections for our group was amazing: I had the Steak Tartare while the others in our group had the Lobster Avocado Stack (delicious !), the Beets and Burrata (she loved it and so did I), and the Monday "Comfort Food" special: Fettuccine with Mushrooms and Pancetta. I tried all of the selections and found them to be superb. As a bonus, our French-speaking waiter, Robert, who provided excellent service, turned out to be a waiter from a restaurant we frequented about 30 years ago near a former Long Island home. The environment was spectacular, overlooking the water facing west, and the sunset was postcard-perfect, as was the food and the service. Loved it !

Menu has more of a Greek flair. Very crisp and good Caesar salad and Greek salad. Red Snapper and Grouper were fresh and outstanding. Wine list is short but sufficient. Enjoyed a very reasonably priced Italian Pinot Grigio. Dessert menu did not appear to offer anything special and passed on it.

We enjoyed our drinks, dinner and dessert. We went for a sunset dinner for our 10 year Anniversary and we were not disappointed. We had the grouper and snapper with were very tasty. Although our experience was a good one, it may have been a tad overpriced. For me, this would be a special occasion only restaurant. When making a reservation, they ask if it’s a special occasion so of course I said it’s our anniversary. When presented our Check we were given an envelope that was their gift to us.....well not exactly. It contained a certificate of a complementary bottle of house champagne on our next visit of a party of 4 or more? That was more of an insult to me. As our bill for the two of us more than covered a bottle of champagne. It was a gift with strings. Thanks but no thanks......

The food was very good. View was very nice. Our waiter seemed a bit grumpy. I am not sure if
It was because we had a 4 year old who was behaving fairly well, or because we did not agree to some
Of the most expensive items he was pointing out. We were really surprised when he tried to talk me out of a daily special that I had read good things about.

Solid as always in both service and food quality. A local "go to" for fine dining with a view. Only disappointment was having 7 adults seated at a 6 top table. Made it a bit too tight, even for us good friends.

Having guests from GB, thought this would be nice to have dinner and watch the sunset. This is a lovely waterside restaurant with inside and outside bars. Kimi, the bartender is wonderful! Our meals were excellent, the service was nice and its a great place to dine if only other diners would be a bit more considerate of those around them. Ive noticed this in a lot of restaurants, people think and act like they are dining at home and while its great to enjoy your friends with lively conversation, show a little consideration for others and take it down a notch.

It was good but too expensive. my steak was over cooked, had a lot of gristle and lacked enough seasoning. It’s fine, but I prefer a place like Eddie Vs in Tampa for far superior tasting food for the price. The view of the Gulf is nice. Music outside was too loud. Dessert was tasty - key lime pie.

Great atmosphere! Decent food. Service was painfully slow and we were left wondering where our drinks were and if we could order our food, but still very nice waitress. Great view of the sunset which was awesome! Sitting outside was lovely. Had a live band that played great music and was not too overbearing and added to the atmosphere. Drinks were SUPER weak, sangria tasted more like flavored water. Might have just been unlucky that day.
