Wait time to be seated was to long. Once seated waiter was great ,service great and food was tasty and delicious. Like to know why people of color was seated in the middle away from the other guest. It was very obvious that we were separated.

The chicken was as hard as a rock.
My party of five was disappointed with the chicken, which they were unable to cut.

We were seated at possibly the worst seat on the top deck. No view whatsoever. But the server was great and it was nice to be able to reserve an outdoor table.

The occasion of our 25th anniversary brought us to this special place. We set sail with the delicious curried scallop appetizer. Hubby enjoyed a succulent filet mignon and I enjoyed the delicious sea bass special. In hopes of ending our night with a sweet exclamation point, we ordered the Moshulu brownie sundae; however it was simply a period, a disappointing final note to an extraordinary meal.

I had a 12:30 pm reservation for 4. The service was very slow. The waiter explained that there was a wedding party in the other area and that was why it took one hour and half to receive our main entree. I thought it was funny that our food was running late after seeing 3 group of people who came in after us receive their food ate and left and we were still waiting for our food. Very disappointed. For the price the service does not match. Will not be dinning again at this restaurant.

The food selection was so so - it didn’t make me feel any wow ness upon being served - idc what ppl say grits do not go with ribs... the Korean Chile men was good. Idk what was with the salmon , it was hard and unflavorful if it was couscous or quinoa idk but the dessert was fine . I luv the decor of the boat it was charming

The location and setting was cool, but the experience overall was terrible. We waited almost two hours for our entrees, had to ask about them multiple times, and had to consistently flag someone down for more drinks.

We had such a great time, the food and drinks were amazing, the boat was stunning and the all around atmosphere was exactly what we needed to make the night special. Our server Gary was possibly the best part of the night he made sure we were taken care of was very sociable and even took our picture. 10/10 would recommend.

We really enjoyed our special evening here. Our server, Gary, was especially helpful and made our experience even better. The bread tasted perfect along with the swordfish, tuna, and blueberry cheesecake. Thank you so much for everything!

Went for restaurant week. The venue is amazing with beautiful views, and a quiet space for dinner. The servers were friendly but not super attentive. Overall, the food was disappointing. It was all good but not the quality and flavors you’d expect for a fancier restaurant like this. Just average so I’m glad I went for restaurant week and did not have to spend as much.

The atmosphere is excellent. The food is fair. It's a hit or miss depending on your taste in food. As for the seafood roll that I had seems to be a bit too salty. The selection of app is far too few and the egg bene that my wife had is okay so 3 star for the food. The services are great. Waiter is attentive but not intrusive. As for the enviornment, it's a beautiful view and great way to enjoy brunch on a Sunday afternoon.

I felt like I was eating at a diner. The waiter was ok. It took a long time for our soda and lemonade to get to the table. The chairs were to tall for me. I was uncomfortable sitting in the mental chair. The food was good but it taste much better at the chart house. It was our date night so I made the best of it
