    Very nice place. We had seven in our party, including four kids and had reservations. We were taken right in. Martinis were delicious. The only issue I had was there was not much to choose from for little ones who are picky eaters.

    Really unfortunate…. In the past we had great food so we were excited to make reservations again. Last evening the food made us all not well. Best thing we had was the. Mushroom soup. Two gosh dishes were over cooked and fishy. The waiter was a real disappointment. We ordered another glass of champagne and he never came back with it and appeared annoyed when he finally did come we asked for the check. It was not busy last night so no reason to have an inattentive waiter. What a shame…

    Though the selection is small, the quality of the dishes is very high at this restaurant. The flavor combinations are more advanced than your normal seafood spot on the beach. I had the tuna special for the evening, which had a wasabi cream cheese topping that was out of this world! The martinis are delicious and can be made to suit your taste. I highly recommend this place for a splurge or a date night out!

    Was so nice to just walk up and be seated with a reservation in a nice, quiet gourmet restaurant. Food was excellent and service was great. Would be better if it had gluten free options on the menu but that was the only issue.
