    Gorgeous place but you miss the experience when you sit in the cabins outside. And because we did the food arrived cold.

    Took the tasting menu. I have to say most of the meals were too salty.

    Lovely restaurant, open kitchen, very good wait staff and support. Our brunch was a Mother’s Day fixed menu which we enjoyed very much. Highly recommend Octavia.

    This is a well appointed space, the service is excellent and the patrons sophisticated. The menu is interesting with creative farm-to-table menu items & a good wine list. Unfortunately the food was beautiful but not delicious. It was fine, but somehow I expected more given all the other elements were spot-on. Maybe it was the specific items we chose? The fish dish was fishy and bland. The pasta was okay but nothing special. I’ll give it another try with expectations in check.

    Aggressively mediocre tasting menu. Wine parings were the best part
