Drinks were great, food just OK, but service was terrible! Waited 1.5 hrs for a calamari appetizer at 3:30 in the afternoon when not even half of the tables were occupied! We got up to leave without even having dinner when one of the crew promised the service will get better if we stayed for dinner. 18% gratuity was included, so little incentive to stay on top of things....drove 1.5 hrs each way for that?! No, thanks

While the meal was very good and the setting spectacular, the service was somewhat lackadaisical; we had a 5 p.m. reservation, but they didn't open for seating until 5:15. The music is very loud.

I’ve been here before, was very disappointed this time around. I made reservations and they never mentioned yo me that their beach area was closed which was the main purpose of me choosing la Marina to celebrate my birthday. I left after the appetizer and went elsewhere

Waited our food for 45min, until we asked the waitress if this was normal (and the answer was “yes”). Asked about our food after another 15min when we realized that there had been a problem (they forgot?). When the main course arrived it was embarrassing: the fish (very small portion) was in a dish without anything else coming with it. One hour waiting for that?! We were then informed that we would have not been made pay for the dishes that arrived late...really?! We asked for side dishes that arrived once we had almost finished our main. When we asked for two desserts, one was the one we had ordered the second was something else, because our choice had finished. Never seen that you get something else without even being asked. They at least did not make us pay for the dessert we had not ordered. Bottom line: the manager didn’t even show up to apologize. The minimum for a ruined special occasion dinner would have been the whole dinner being offered...but not! They were even expecting the tip!

I would have given 5 stars were it not for the service we received. We were seated immediately, and received water to our table within 3 minutes. Our server didn't come to the table for about 15 minutes after and there were few people in the restaurant at that time. Once she approached the table, she didn't introduce herself and she was looking at her tablet, no eye contact was made. We gave her the order and it took 20 minutes to receive the appetizer. The appetizer was raw oysters, again there was not a lot of people in the restaurant. I used to be a server and that was not good service. She checked on us 2 times and we were there for 90 minutes. Overall the food was great and the space and ambiance was awesome I would go back, I would just have a different server.

Overall I enjoyed myself. The view is beautiful right around sunset, however indoor lighting is gorgeous as well. I didn’t know my server’s name, and it seemed like my boyfriend had to call him over before we were served. I asked to package my food, and when I got home I noticed my lobster mac and cheese ( which was delicious!!!) was missing. Note to self, if you can’t package your food yourself, eat it before you leave. The shrimp and scallops are a little too salty by the way. I asked for special dessert for our anniversary as well, but was disappointed when it didn’t work out. I wish I was told ahead of time, that what I asked for wouldn’t be possible. Music was great! Management was friendly as well.

Server was absent in the dining area, some food portions were like warm at best (even the replacement portions), and the price was way too much for the food.

Manager on duty was accommodating to some extent, although I would have still paid full price, but the dining experience just wasn’t there.

I would definitely go back for drinks and the vibe as it is an awesome looking venue...very spacious, outdoor seating, next to the water. And the DJ was doin’ it!!!!

Food was mediocre, if your going to charge Manhattan prices the food needs to match the pricing. Have been here a few times but won't be rushing back. Our starter arrived the same time as entree, service was very slack on top of it considering it wasn't busy, have to say a complete let down for over priced food.

We were never sat at a table despite our reservation. We waited 20 minutes and then another 20 before being told we would still need to wait. “Rude hostess” would be an understatement. She was horrible. Felt extremely unwelcome. I’ve visited this restaurant before but at least the food and service were both mediocre last time.

The service wasn’t that great. The host sat us down and we waited for at least 25 minutes for a waiter to come by. He never passed by to check on us and see if we needed anything else but was on top of all of his other tables. Everytime we tried getting his attention he would avoid us. On top of that he messed up our order and our food didn’t come out the way we wanted it. But it was still good. Then when we finished our food we waited 45 minutes and tried to get his attention to give us our check. We had to ask the waiter that was waiting tables in the outside area to give us our check. It was a great chill place but their service ruined our experience.

Great experience with the exception to security posted at the front gate. Not very welcoming, even though the venue was empty at the time, unless you had a reservation you can't step into this place.
Luckily we had a booking, have to believe there must be reason for this gate keeper, but the barricades are a tad unwelcoming

There was conflicting music coming from the dining area and a separate events area that was very annoying. They should turn one off. Service is poor and they sneak an 18% service charge on to the bill so beware. I wouldn’t have topped that amount. Wait staff seemed not to know what to do. Drinks were very watered down.

The only good thing was the view. We arrived at 430 and waited at the lounge area until the restaurant opened at 5pm. Even though it was empty the service sucked. Waiters were not attentive and had no clue what was going on. I guess they don’t communicate with eachother. The menu sucked ! Not much variety. They didn’t even have chicken as an option for an entree. They didn’t even have crayons available to entertain the children. If I wanted a grill sandwich I would of had to go back and sit by the lounge because it’s two different menus. The only one doing their job right was the guy going around serving water. He needs a raise! It’s just ridiculous. Never again.
