What a beautiful experience! The scenery was beautiful. The food was really delicious. The only downsides I dealt with was a very loud table that wasn’t considerate of orders, my server didn’t visit us as much as others did, and I asked if someone could turn on the fire for the heat and nobody came to do it. I will definitely return again when I visit.

I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. The service was good and the food was also good. We were sat immediately without issue as we had reservations however, I was a little disappointed that my reservation mentioned my occasion and there was no acknowledgement from any of the staff members which would have made it feel that much more special.

Was one of our favorite restaurants, but lately they have been missing the mark.

We recently had a waitress who ignored my complaint about the stone crabs we got because they were frozen and this time it just seems the the food is not of the same quality we expected and the brunch selection poor.

From the moment we arrived the wait staff tried to rush us! We’ve never felt so under pressure to order drinks and food all at the same time! Given the pressure to “hurry up” our fear was that the wine, the salads and the entrees would all be delivered to our table at the same time! I even had to ask the server to make sure to allow a little bit of time between salad & entree! I’ve never felt so uncomfortable in a restaurant! It was like hurry up & leave your money! Surprised the rating for this place is where it’s at. For reference all 4 of the tables around us had issues as well!

Highly recommend. We ate directly on the inter coastal waterway, overlooking the boats passing by. Food was truly delicious - we ate the braised short rib (literally fell of the fork, so tender and delicious), sautéed mushrooms, cooked and seasoned to perfection and the quinoa tabbouleh platter which was exceptionally delicious. Also ordered Brussel sprouts which were tender and seasoned well. Cocktails were also tasty - we had the smoked grapefruit margarita. As if all this wasn’t enough, our waiter Juan was excellent and provided high quality service and the hostess, Raven, was incredibly kind, efficient and personable. Her special touch added a memorable and greatly appreciated compliment to our evening. Definitely a place to return to.

Sofia was awesome, she did a great job. The server to our right also did a great job handling a large and out of control family that had been disruptive when we first arrived.

We wanted to be seated where we could see the water and we got a great table. All of the seafood was fresh and larger portions than expected. Even the bread was bakery quality. Our waiter was excellent and attentive. Couldn’t ask for more.

I’ve lived here my whole life and had not been to this restaurant. We are foodies and it’s pretty hard to impress us. Well we were very impressed. Loved everything from start to finish. Not too many restaurants in so fla where you could eat on the water and get good food. This is definitely one of them.

Was there for Sunday brunch. Excellent service and nice ambiance. We had a couple Millionaire Eggs Benedict on The Waterfront, a Cauliflower Roast and Avocado Toast as mains. All the mains were lacking any "umami", bland and flavorless. However the poached eggs were perfect! The Mimosas were way too dry and two of our three drink orders were incorrect. We chose the Banana Foster Bread Pudding for desert, this was a bit sweet, but exquisite flavor and extremely delicious. Well done on dessert! Aside from the drink snafu, our server was exceptional and extremely attentive. Overall for a $160 brunch, I would expect 5 stars across the board. I am looking forward to returning to try some of their other dishes.

First time visiting. Great service and food was as well. Had problem with 2 of our orders that delayed 2 orders a while which is the only reason didn’t rate five stars overall. Manager did make sure he made it right so I would definitely go back.

The food and service was amazing. The sea bass is possibly the most tender and succulent that I have ever had.

The wine selection is also very good.
We will go back.

The quality of food to price ratio is very poor. Waited way too long for the food. Not even the desert came fast enough. The service was not good and they weren’t even that busy. The service was rushed. Overall not worth it.
