It was a beautiful night to sit outside and people watch. Great food, good service, all in all a great night out. It's a little pricey, but for a treat it's well worth it. I ordered the Brussels sprouts salad and the sesame crusted seared tuna which were both delicious!

Loved the atmosphere with nice music playing indoors and outdoors. Upscale without feeling stuffy. Food was great! Scallops and risotto cakes was the best but the lobster and risotto was amazing as well. Will be back.

It seemed like the restaurant was understaffed although there was ample notice from the town that restaurants were opening capacity. It was particularly cold and windy that evening, and the staff were having difficulty getting the outdoor heaters to work as well as obtain our dessert order and check. I ended up going inside to pay. Our server wasn't pleased about that. The food was so-so although the portions were very good. I had a better experience the last time I was there pre-Covid. I realize we all need to be a bit forgiving with Covid, but other restaurants nearby seem to have a better handle on things.

South Bay has been our favorite restaurant - indoor and outdoor - for months. The food is outstanding every time, the service is highly attentive and the ambiance is always fun. The lighting is perfect, with outdoor heat lamps through Covid and dim lighting inside. They have white tablecloths inside which is always nice. The hangar steak, brussel sprouts and grilled calamari are particularly delicious. Highly recommend.

I was pleasantly surprised by everything about this new restaurant. The menu is great and the food was even better. Service was fast and attentive. My wife and I sat inside and the tables we separated by plexiglass dividers, which was nice. The bar looked great and I'm sure it will be lively once things normalize.

This is an old favorite . On this occasion we sat outside and the restaurant was packed due to a burst of warmer weather. So the main problem this time was that the service was extremely slow and it was hard to get anyone's attention if we needed something. We were there almost two hours from when we arrived at our reserved time to when we left, and we did not linger once we had eaten.
Having said that, we love everything on the menu (except the brussels sprouts salad :-))
salad. There is an excellent range of appetizing choices for each course and a solid wine, beer, cocktails list.
Everyone who works there is lovely. When we finally spoke to our waitress she listened carefully to my inquiries about ingredients and helped me select a food to fit my health requirements. She was consistently warm and engaged, when we interacted. On this particular night, however, we endured some very long waits for each course and no check in in between. We will certainly go back soon.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I will definitely go back again. The only issue was the volume. It was very difficult to hear even from someone sitting next to you.

Small, loud. Poor service. Pork Osso Bucco bad, scallops and burger pretty good.
The Z restaurants right next door are better - Mediterraneo and East End.

Went there for Valentine’s Day and had an amazing time. Our waiter Yoan (hope I spelled it right) was simply amazing and very attentive. I had the cioppino and it was perfect! My husband had the strip steak and he really enjoyed it. Cozy place Bit they have plexiglass between each table. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back

Ambience score low only due to plexi dividers all covid related. Side of veg and one of our entrees was over seasoned...that aside fish cooked perfectly and the service "team" concept provided wonderful service. Would definitely return but request low salt knowing the chef has a heavy hand. Felt prices were standard for the area. Fabulous group, consistent quality.

We went for brunch on a Saturday and it was excellent. 2 of us has the bottomless mimosas with our entrees and the waitress brought over a carafe of mimosa in a wine bucket to keep it chilled. The food was delicious. It was pretty empty when we went and felt like such a relaxed environment. They were also great about food allergies including being gluten free
