Normally an amazing dining experience. This particular Wednesday evening with a half-empty restaurant, we were seated 6 ft away from a 20 person group event, SO LOUD! Why could we not have been seated somewhere else? Our server was good, though drinks were not refilled routinely, cocktails or water, because she was helping with the group of 20. Appetizer and salads came out promptly, though a very long wait between salad and dinner. Normally I can’t finish my salad before dinner arrives. That night was a 15 min wait in between, again probably because they were preparing/serving the large, LOUD group. When dinner arrived, my date was very pleased. Things looked terrific. I took a bite of my dinner and it tasted great. I spun the plate around to get to the crab, and found a black hair directly on the center of the lump crab. How did no one spot the coarse, black hair laying on top of the white crab meat. They came and cleared my place, offered to replace my dinner with something else. I was no longer interested in eating. After all the issues, I was just ready to leave. The restaurant failed to meet the expectations they have previously instilled. No comp on drinks, appetizers, or anything else. I’m surprised they didn’t charge me for the small taste of trigger fish that I ate before I found the hair. Disappointing. Not the “date” experience I had hoped for.

Service was fantastic as always, but some of the food was massively over salted. We had to send back our sautéed mushrooms as they were terrible and the staff just took them away and no other mention was made of them?
We love this restaurant and this was my birthday celebration, so for the money very disappointed

It took a long time to serve our food. No communication about what was happening and manager showed up to ask about the food after it was serve.
Compared with other restaurants at this level, I would not recommend this Restaurant.

Food was excellent. Very fresh and perfectly prepared. I had seafood trio and it was moist and delicious. My friend had the lamb and said it was amazing.
A nice menu choice of both seafood and meat dishes.
The manager came by a number of times to make sure we were enjoying our meal.
Look forward to dining here again.

Ised to be a great place to eat. The outside needs to be upgraded and the food is not as well prepared as well. Took forever to get our food. Plus they are changing 5 star prices for a 3 star restaurant.

Expensive. My mom ordered a pina colada and it was watered down. They did not even take it off the bill we realized it when we came home. My nephew ordered a drink and it was also watered down. Not worth the price.

We always sit outside because the restaurant itself is usually like a meat locker. Very relaxing to sit out by the water and see an occasional turtle. The food is always great and the wait staff couldn’t be better! Many enjoyable evenings have been spent here.

Food was good but not great. Service was not up to standard for that caliber of restaurant. New credit card/payment electronic platform & waiter just handed it to us to complete transactions instead of doing it himself. Very unprofessional & worthy of a discount in his tip. Would not return.

Host told us we were the last people and made us feel extremely uncomfortable even though when we left an hour later, people were still coming in. Waitress started off great, but then we went though our entire meal with no water or wine, no luck getting anyone else's attention either. Food was excellent however!

We were there for a birthday dinner and the staff. Especially our server Kaya, were excellent. Food was superb crab crusted lobster expensive but divine. Managed to get there for happy hour which was great, half priced drinks. We booked but it is possible to get a table except fridays and Saturdays would recommend booking.

I have been here several times before with excellent results. This time was a big disappointment. The level of service was extremely poor. We ordered a seafood tower which was excellent, but handicapped by my inability to get any drawn butter. I shouted at several servers before getting anyone's attention. When I did, he said that my server was preparing our meals and would be with us in several minutes. That was totally unacceptable. My wife, who was the honoree, and I ate the king crab. It was tough and not particularly tasty. The cake at the end was excellent!

This meal was extremely expensive, over $1000, but not worth the cost. I will not sponsor a party here again.

Food was great but it’s on the pricey side so it should be. Hostess was great. Server seemed a little disinterested. Had to bring silverware after our salads arrived. Then we needed to ask for napkins because he only brought the silverware. That should be a given. That’s really the only complaint. Food made up for everything.
