Our server, Thomas, was phenominal. He was enthusiastic and very knowledgable, giving us great advice regarding the food and our selection of wine. My date really enjoyed the lobster pasta but I felt the filet mignon wasn’t the best cut of filet i’ve had. Overall, we had a great experience and would eat there again.

The noise level was chaotic. The staff were robotic and only modestly attentive. The food was first rate, but quantity portions were modest, and less than described. There is no warmth to the dining experience. It is not an adventure. Was happy to receive the bill and leave. An expensive and unrewarding experience, not to be revisited.

Johnathan was our server and did a great job. My stuffed lobster was to die for. My wife’s stone crabs was amazing.
Our sides were undercooked but we didn’t tell anyone.

Tried calling several times to say we’d be late but got put on hold over and over. Didn’t matter because we were immediately seated when we arrived, about 10 minutes later. Lively, vibrant restaurant, felt like I was in a NYC restaurant. Loved the ambiance. Awesome decor especially the lighthouse glass chandeliers. Formally attired, very attentive servers. Ordered wine, came quickly, then dinner, of course ordered the 1 lb lobster tails, plus 1 filet to share, at our servers recommendation, along with asparagus & “tater tots”.. Warm rolls came, not my taste. Came with unsalted butter so kind of bland. Melted butter came over a flame, but no lobster. Eventually manager came over to apologize that our tails hadn’t been cooked properly and order had to go in again, offering after dinner drink & dessert on them. Very kind. Tails came. Husbands was silky moist, hot, delicious, Mine was stone cold. Asparagus not much warmer, tots piping hot with delicious dip. Sent my lobster back. They offered lobster bisque while waiting but expected to be eating a 1 lb tail momentarily. Returned to me so hot couldn’t eat it, way over done and now tough, tasteless. Think they just microwaved my original tail until hot. Waiter ignored me with my uneaten dinner until couldn’t any longer and I said please take it off the bill. Lobster restaurant can’t get lobster right, not good. Gave us free after dinner drinks, and dessert for my husband’s birthday, and took over $100 off the bill but still very disappointed. Prob won’t be back.

The food is outstanding. The service was horrible. 3 people, we ordered a 4lb branzino, an 8 oz filet mignon, corn & brocolini to share. The server poured the sauce & capers all over the fish & plopped it on the table. The steak was not sliced. When you spend $450 you would expect the server to offer to plate your 1st serving of fish & sides.

The good: very attentive service and beautiful ambiance. Chilean sea bass is excellent, though I’d ask to sub a different sauce next time. Flash fried lobster tail was unique and a hit with our group, as was crab cake. Loved the “tater tots”.

The bad: the chopped salad was very plain and you couldn’t taste the dressing.

The worst: the peanut butter chocolate parfait was horrible. Literally the worst dessert I’ve ever had at a restaurant. Couldn’t even finish it, and that has never happened, even for my easy-going husband. Very odd (artificial) taste and texture. Disappointing note to end on.

The tuna tartare came with some atrocious and inedible crisps that should only be used as packing material. Overall the food was ok at best. We had a reso through Open Table for 8:00PM and weren’t seated until 8:45. The hostesses were annoying and kept over promising our table. Overall an annoying experience. We won’t be rushing back anytime soon.

I love this restaurant. It has only one drawback, it is not readily accessible for handicap. The staff was extremely accommodating in getting my 91 and 93 y.o. Parents with walkers down the front steps since the access ramp was quite a distance from the restaurant. The staff went above and beyond to assist. The city should allow a ramp to the front door.

I love the restaurant but the food this time was below average. I had Dover sole & it was sitting in a watery substance on my plate. I don’t think it was cooked all the way. Our waiter although efficient, he seemed very cold, a smile goes a long way, but we never got one.
