I will give them this... it is a pretty setting. We requested a table on the porch when reserving but when we got there we were told there was no table available on the porch because their lodge guests get first priority. We were put inside in their stuffy dining room. We still had a distant view through other tables. Our waitress was notably abrupt and unfriendly. She would not accommodate any request. For example, one guest reasonably asked to substitute roasted potatoes (which were on the menu included with other entrees) for fennel which was included on their entree because she does not like fennel. The waitress said the chef allows no substitutions for any reason. The guest said "OK, then please leave the fennel off" and the waitress said no, it would run the presentation. All in all we would have preferred a casual dinner on the beach at their sister restaurant next door. But, we were celebrating two occasions and thought Pierres would be nicer. By the way , they knew of the celebrations and offered nothing.

We requested outside patio but it wasn’t ready when we arrived so we had a drink on the porch to watch rest of the sunset. Great location with casual elegance! Morada Bay Beach Café great for lunch but Pierre’s is for a more romantic upscale experience! I had the yellowtail tuna and my husband had the snapper. Both were the best we had our entire trip. Key lime also very good.

This is definitely not a fish restaurant despite the beach location. Lamb chops were outstanding, but fish (grouper) was lacking flavor, the creamy cause was not complimenting and choice of vegetables was strange to say the least: green beans and potatoes with skin on are more appropriate for meat dishes.

We dined at sunset and had an outdoor table overlooking the water with unobstructed views. Our server was very professional and attentive. We ordered some inspired cocktails that were delicious.

The menu is oriented towards fresh seafood, but other fare is also present. Our salads, octopus appetizer and local-catch fish entree were prepared to perfection. The wine list was adequate but appropriate for the menu, with a bias toward New World vintages. However we able to find a nice French Chablis that was perfect. One note on the wine service: the first bottle we ordered was a white Burgundy that turned out to be corked. Our waitress acknowledged it immediately and was quick to help us find something else to our liking.

The dessert offerings were also great and paired with a fine port.

This place is not inexpensive, but it is a great destination for a special romantic dinner.

Thanks. That's a beautiful and on-point review. Sorry about the wine issue, as you know, this can happen from time to time with the finer old vintage wines. We do appreciate that you caught it right away and we were able to offer to you a different selection. We do remember your table, you were a very nice couple, our server Lina took care of you. Please come back and see us again some time. And thanks again.

Everything about Pierre’s was excellent. The table linens, glassware and silver made for an upscale table setting. The setting—outside on the deck—at sunset was so beautiful. A delicious bottle of Cab, along with deliciously prepared fresh seafood, made for a complete over-the-top experience. Not to be missed: snow crab claws, curried lobster!

Food was spectacular - fresh, interesting, beautifully presented. If you go, bring a credit card with a VERY high credit limit. $75 for a steak! $50 for the lobster entree I split with my friend. A tiny (though delicious) salad for $15. Ambience on the terrace overlooking the bay at sunset was beautiful. Waiter was pretentious. My entree included coconut served still in the shell. When I asked if he could split it open and get the coconut out so I could eat it, that seemed to surprise him. Although he took it back to the kitchen and told me someone who was "the best" had prepared it, I saw no change, and was unable to get at the coconut to eat it.
