Ambiance is amazing, the food was pretty bland. I ordered the branzino and it was very under seasoned and bland. My friend had the steak and frites and it was also bland. Idk if I’d order the same thing again but I’d return for the scenery snd maybe just drinks. Food is definitely underwhelming.

The view couldn’t have been better and the staff was lovely. The food was good, and not too pricey for the area, but you come here for the location and the view.

You can’t beat the view and last night, the large waves and high tides gave us quite a show. We were delicately covered in Seaspray. And the food and service also made it a great experience. It is a relatively small patio and so even if it was fill, it would not have felt crowded, which we enjoyed. It seems like it’s more for hotel guests which made it feel like a little secret. We will definitely be back!

If I am paying $30 for my food alone, I expect to get pretty good service. Our waiter brought our food, I ordered a glass of wine and he brought it out 2 min later. He did not come back by the table for almost an entire hour. There was only 1 other table out there and it is a small patio area. He had to see us outside every time he walked in and out or was at the bar inside and still didn’t come to check on us. When he did we joked that he forgot about us and he didn’t even apologize and just asked if we needed anything else. Ummm maybe we did 30 min ago, but after an hour we just want to leave. I receive the check and there is an 18% gratuity added to it already. Clearly this man knows he doesn’t have to work for any sort of tip since it is automatically added. I spoke to the manager and she apologized, she spoke to him and he STILL didn’t apologize. I would not go back and I would recommend avoiding this place solely based on service. I hope the restaurant also seriously considers his position there since he can’t even manage to wait on 2 tables. Everything else was good. What sucks is we probably would have spent an additional $100 or so on drinks and dessert if he had just come by the dang table.

Just WOW ! It was our anniversary and all my dreams came true. The food was an added bonus as I was just hoping to spend an evening by the ocean but the food was Michelin star. New Chef apparently and my Branzino was off the charts and by far the best I have ever had. Service was above par also. As for the view well it was West Coast Pacific paradise. Thank you. My husband loved his burger and Pumpkin fries too.

Had an incredible lunch here yesterday. Great service, delicious and fresh dishes, quaint and quiet ambiance, and unforgettable desserts.

Appetizer: We had the Calamari (best I've ever had). Batter was a bit greasy but the calamari was tender and juicy.
Salad: Chopped salad, Delicious! (Spain style and flavored cuts, olives, sliced s parmesan)
Entree: Bolognese (al dente style fresh 'morning made' pasta), generous tomato sauce
Dessert: pistachio/chocolate cake (yum!), and fresh baked cookie and ice-cream (decadent/delicious). Can take some time to make so allow ample time, min 15 minutes for it to be served (and it was a slow day).

Service: First rate
Ambiance: Ample umbrellas
View: so close to the water, you can feel it. One of the best and hidden secret, views to date.
Parking: Valet ($10 for 3 hours, $20 for 3+ which they don't play, we were 15 min over and charged us $20 per car but at the time it didn't matter because we were so blissed out with the meal and dining experience. There's are parking across the street for $10 ,but we didn't intend on staying so long.

Service was not great, it appeared like they only had one waiter for the outside tables. Additionally, our reservation was for 7:30 pm but we were seated up until 8:10pm. They have a breath taking view but their food was pretty bland (Minus the truffle fries)

Won’t go back so fast
View beautiful
Pricy and an 18 percent service charge added to bill
So with $10.00 valet plus left tip it was overpriced and why service charge ???
We eat out every weekend but never paid 18 percent service charge any other place
We were only table so place empty
Wonder why???
