    Food was good. The coconut cake was amazing. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and deliberately picked a place that requires diners to dress up since it elevates the experience. Sadly, the two men in front of us were seated wearing caps which they wore throughout dinner. What is the point of a dress code if you aren't going to enforce it? If you want to show up in jeans and caps, sit in the bar.

    We visited the Peninsula Grill for our 40th Anniversary. There was a huge rain storm just an hour before our reservation and we were to sit on the patio. The weather cleared and for most of our dinner there was only one other group seated on the patio so it was very quiet and romantic. We shared the blue cheese salad and we both had the Diver Scallops with blue crab and pumpkin gnocchi. The flavors were outstanding and the scallops were cooked to perfection. We ended with a piece of their famous coconut cake which was also delicious. We had our own server for our table so the service was exceptional as well! We had a great time!

    I was disappointed by this restaurant. There were so many good reviews and I don’t know if people just haven’t had good food or it’s just a local spot. I’ve been to plenty of high end restaurants in the area with better food. The lobster ravioli was disappointing. One ravioli and one piece of lobster claw? The wagyu was good just small portioned. The asparagus was steamed with cheese thrown on it. Not good at all. Mushrooms were good and the best part of the whole night was the coconut cake. I would rethink coming here and trying this place if you’re a person that appreciates good quality food.

    It was a lovely dinner on the patio. Our server Paul was very knowledgeable about the menu and offered great recommendations regarding wine and our meal. Only downside was the wedding on the patio at the same time. The wedding was fine but for 45 minutes after listening to the photographer yell at the top of her lungs trying to get pictures taken was just too much. We of course will go back but not choose patio seating again
