    Came here for dinner last night. The location is great. We ordered the guacamole with shrimp to start. Came with strawberries and pineapple. It was very interesting. The guac and shrimp had no real flavor too it. We also got the lobster quesadilla, tacos al pastor and chicken quesadilla. The lobster quesadilla came in 4 slices and after eating the first, I picked the lobster out of the remaining slices. The chicken quesadilla was more of a burrito than a quesadilla. The tacos weren’t too spectacular. Overall, there seemed too many different flavors being mixed that fell flat.

    Super busy, had a reservation. Sat down and ordered guacamole and drinks. Guacamole came and the chips were super bland and the guac was watery and lacked flavor . Then waited over 20 minutes for our drinks at which point we were told they were out of frozen margaritas. At this point we still hadn’t put in our main order and asked for the check. The severe came back and said the guac was on the house. The server was very nice and apologetic but the section had a big party and the place was just too busy and couldn’t handle the volume.

    The food was good. The room could have been a little brighter so that I could see my food, but I guess that was the ambiance they were going for. The food was delivered rather quickly. The server could have been more attentive as he forgot to bring out our drinks. We just drank water and reminded him when he brought the bill.

    I was able to make the a la carte reservation but when I got there, it was a buffet. I didn’t want a buffet. It would have been nice to have known ahead of time. Service was very slow. My waiter forgot our drinks multiple times. I had to keep asking. Not sure I’ll return but maybe they were too busy. Very poor service.

    We were seated indoors, which is what we asked for. One set of napkin with fork and knives was on the table and there was not a second set. No plates on the table either. Our waiter came by in about 10 minutes to tell us that he’ll be by later. 5 minutes passed, waiter stopped by and he took our drink order ad well as appetizers. Our crab guacamole and shrimp ceviche arrived 10 minutes later. The ceviches was very watery. The crab guacamole had no crab. We mentioned to our waiter, he noticed and promised he would bring over the crab. 5 minutes away, loose crab meat was brought over in a metal condiment container for ketchup. 15 minutes later our drinks was brought over, which the waiter spilled 1/5 of my wife’s drink on the table, no apologies. Both our drinks were very weak. We finished our appetizers and did not finished our drink, paid and left. Not a Positive experience to say the least. Between sitting down and leaving, the whole experience was about 2 hours because of long delays to get service, order, food and beverage.

    We enjoyed our stay at the Westin. We also enjoyed our brunch experience at lona and our dinner date there for our anniversary over the weekend. Our server morgan made it so special for us! She recommended some of the new cocktails on the menu and they were so yummy along with the yellowtail bites and lobster quesadillas. We will be staying here and dining at Lona when we head back to florida.

    Service was fine but the food was not as good as reviews led me to believe. The fish tacos were ok but the fish was mostly breading and tough. The margaritas were ok, could have been more tart. Churros were very disappointing, minimal cinnamon and the dipping sauce was bitter.

    Great location With excellent ocean views outdoors. Service was fast and friendly. The chips and salsa were excellent. Fresh crispy chips with a creamy salsa. The Tamarita margarita had a little bite and was refreshing and tasty. I had the Drunken Gouper with a cauliflower mash and cilantro salad. The Grouper was excellent- perfectly cooked with a nice flavor that went well with the Cauliflower mash. The Cilantro salad (nothing but cilantro) was a bit overpowering- it would have been better to have it mixed with other greens. Overall a great venue for a relaxing and good meal by the ocean!
