Service was great with Mateo as our server. The only downside was that the snapper special wasn’t a good quality fish; however, it was quickly exchanged for the salmon that was delicious. Overall a great save from what could’ve been a bad experience.

Extremely over priced. I understand high pricing for luxury dining, but $52 for the smallest filet mignon I've ever seen is crazy. All dinners are a la carte and highly priced. Food was good but the bill was silly exorbitant for what we ate and drank.

Thank you for dining and sharing your feedback. Unfortunately, prices of beef are at an all-time high and fluctuating daily, which our menu prices reflect. Our smallest cut is a 10oz Filet Mignon.

The building felt "tired" - worn dining table tops, sitting low in chair because of soft cushions, restroom doors finish is off, men's room hardware had rust stains, women's room purse hook broken off...
Dinner was excellent: snapper special and filet mignon with sides and salad all prepared and presented nicely.

Save your money. Went there for our Anniversary. Ordered the NY strip medium rare. It arrived well done. Sent it back. They brought out another steak not cooked well either. The steak was encased in fat that was not e
ven rendered. Inedible. Had to argue with the Manager that we were not paying for the inedible meal. Really I had to argue this? The steak was $52 and the sides which were also inedible were $12 each.

First impression at the host stand - didn't really think much about it at that time but the host was dressed in personal trainer attire (keep this in mind at the end of review)

Requested to sit at an outside table, very nice umbrella tables and spaced out from other diners, nice view of the beach. 4 stars

Menu - the menu given to you is not the same one on the website. I asked the server if there were any other items available other than the menu (because the menu is not the same as the website!) The server answered with an attitude. There were 3 others seated with me and they all felt the server's vibe as well.

Food - I can only speak for myself, I ordered the cobb salad, 4 out of 10. Small portion, most of it was romaine lettuce on the white side. I also ordered a side of croissant. This was the worst. Croissants are supposed to be light and layers on the inside. When I picked up the croissant it was very heavy? why was it heavy you ask? because the inside was like a lump of uncooked dough! Weird because the outside of the croissant was normal but when you tore it in half it was just a thick heavy lump of dough.

Chose this restaurant because it was supposed to have a lot of vegetarian options, no, because once again the menu on the website is not the same as in person.

Overall food was meh, service was meh and won't be going there again.

Still gave the server 20% tip. Because at least she showed up to work as well as the personal trainer/host.

Hi Jean! Thank you for dining and sharing your experience. I apologize that we certainly did not meet your expectations. I would encourage you and all diners to only get menus directly from our website and not any third party. All of those menus are updated weekly and have been current. We apologize for any misunderstanding. We certainly understand the other issues and will promptly address them. Thank you!

When you come to a boutique resort and go to their high end chef-driven restaurant on property, there are some basic expectations. Ambiance, mixology drinks and a unique menu with local flavors and products. Missed the mark on all of the above.
We cam a little early to enjoy a cocktail at the bar. First impression as we sat at the bar...what is that horrible stench? I am a 30 year restaurant person, and I have never smelled a bar that bad. We lasted less than five minutes and got up to walk away from the bar...and should have walked out completely. The lack of cleanliness at the bar is usually an indicator of how the rest of the restaurant is kept. Our table was ready and was far away from the bar, so we sat. It was 8 PM on a Friday night on a beachside restaurant. The lights inside were still set at full on, so the ambiance inside was unpleasant. Outside, we were told that that the tiki torches and fire pits would be lit up for ambiance...they were never lit up. Diners outside had to use their phones to see what was going on.
Service was acceptable, but wine knowledge and choices were lacking. Food came out in adequate time, but was typical. We skipped the appetizers because nothing was interesting. The tofu vegetarian dish was supposed to be pressed and they were just raw cubes you can get at any Chinese restaurant. The recommended filet tips were not tips...more like snips and bit. I don't know why they asked me what temperature I wanted the filet tips, because they were so small and tasteless. It was a trip back to grade school cafeteria chipped beef. We skipped dessert and bailed out of there to try and salvage the evening. Would not recommend for dinner. Breakfast was good.

Cocktails were very good, and it was downhill from there. Service was horrible, and it wasn't 100% the server's fault. Food was under-seasoned and under cooked (almost raw). Lobster had no flavor. Didn't bother wasting time with dessert. For what it cost, I expect more than a glorified Cheesecake Factory.

The food and service are excellent. The chairs need to be replaced as your face is nearly on the table you sink so low!( bit I hear a redo is in the works). The cost is as should be expected as the restaurant is in an hotel and quite good.
