    We sat outside by the beach for brunch. The food, service and views were all amazing. Highly recommend the eggs benedict verde, pancakes and french toast. Don't come here expecting a bargain but it was worth every penny for a lovely afternoon out with delicious food in a beautiful setting.

    Extremely long. The value isn’t there, we were not impressed with the food. We will not be returning. We were also charged for a full bottle of wine when we only got 1 glass of wine. After reaching out to the restaurant, a manager contacted me back with a resolution.

    It is a lively, energetic scene. The service was very slow - had to ask a few times for our drinks, so sat with water for a bit. Food is pricey and they don't allow substitutions, even when there is an allergy. However, the food was tasty and the atmosphere was festive.

    Fantastic dinner that lived up to its reputation. Four of us dined on the patio. The ambiance is wonderful, the drinks are perfect and food was delicious. As a group we had the Spicy Tuna roll and Mushroom flat bread for appetizers. For entrees we had the Big eye tuna, orechetti with sausage, and burgers. For dessert we shared the chocolate and peanut butter moose. All were excellent as was the presentation. You can view photos of these dishes on the website. Our waiter, Virgil, made the night extra special with his great service. He was warm and friendly and very informative without trying to oversell anything. He explained all dishes and specials (including the prices on specials) and gave good advice on buying a bottle of wine versus individual glasses if we were having more than one drink. Just letting us know, we’d get a better value. It was a truly special meal and well worth the money. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    The restaurant is beautiful but that’s where it ended. Service was mediocre and the food was over priced for what it was and my veal chop was so overly salted o couldn’t eat it. The lamb chops ordered medium rare were well done. I would not recommend

    I made a reservation for 10 people for my birthday and the day of the reservation we called the restaurant ahead asking if they could push the reservation for 7:30pm instead of 6pm as we had to drive more than 1hour to get to the place. The associate we spoke to told us it was okay they would have a table ready, then on my way I receive a call telling me they can’t hold my table, I explained again that I was on my way and I spoke to someone already and they told me okay. I get there a little before 7:30pm and I’m told they do not have a table for us and if we want we can just sit in random couches outside, the manager tried to argue with us making it seems like we didn’t understand what was going on, and was not even apologetic, super rude in her way to talk even tho I picked this place for the reviews and for my birthday it was disappointing. We waited almost two hours just to get our appetizers, then the meals came right after but overall it was such a bad experience on my birthday. I’ll give our server « Loïc » on the other hand all the praise for his work, he was so nice, understanding and polite whenever we had questions, he was the real hero of the night. The rest of the staff was just mean and I don’t know if it was just towards us or they normally do things like that. Wouldn’t be back there, everything is overpriced and not that good on top of the bad service and management

    Ambiance is what your paying for. Food was not what I expected. Tiny burnt flatbread. Sushi rolls that you could get at a gas station. Very expensive for what was served. I would say go to another restaurant on the beach or Shooters down the road for some amazing food

    We have been on the patio twice within the last 10 days. Once for dinner and once for lunch. All was perfect except the music is a little bit too loud. It would not hurt to lower it by a few decibels. Otherwise, we have already recommended D’une to our friends.

    Absolutely beautiful place with a vibe like you are in Greece. Food was fair, salad would be better with different lettuce, romaine or arugula. Flatbread was delicious but served lukewarm. But probably one of the prettiest places around!

    We are a local group of professionals that have been supporting Dune since it opened. The location is exceptional but, the recent remodel is bland, sterile and unkept. All of the outdoor plants are dirty and in need of care. The food was fine but, the service was horrible. Basic service like drink orders, water, table settings, cleanliness even coasters were not provided. I would also add the front desk of Auberge is very unfriendly if not downright rude. I realize this is out of your control but, worth noting. I hope you will take my notes seriously because we want you to be successful and continue to support Dune but, as it stands now only suitable for Happy Hours. 😢

    This one is a special menu prepared for Thanksgiving, and it was outstanding, but it's probably not worth while to comment on the individual dishes. However, the yellowtail appetizer was outstanding in bodes well for having Japanese food here. The salmon was also outstanding, perfectly cooked and moist. The one quibble would be, despite being a fan of slow paced dining, This pace was quite a bit too slow, as was evident from looking at the faces of other diners. However, it is a small quibble.

    Not to the usual standards you expect. Some leeway is given to the fact it is thanksgiving and a the menu is geared up for that. But…. When you get the text to say your table is ready and the 4 hostess’s still don’t seat you for almost 10 minutes. The welcome cocktail was not pleasant. We ordered 2 different bottles of wine and both were presented warm. And the food wasn’t up to the premium price for the day.
