    Food and service were excellent. Choice of music (background) was terrible. Need to rethink their selection. Pricey.

    Over all we enjoyed our meals. The only issue was at 3:30 on a Sunday they didn't have any gluten free pasta which seemed strange give the busy weekend at the shore. We were guided to other options which worked out well.

    Food was amazing, but our server (I forget her name) was terrible. In the span of almost 2 hours, we were visited less than 5 times compared to other tables we were seen 5-7 times who were sat before us. She never asked us how our meal was, offered dessert, or boxes, which we all needed one. Once again, food was outstanding.

    Food was inconsistent and sometimes Ill-prepared. One of my guests had one scallop undercooked, and the other was over cooked (My veal was fine however). Boardwalk restaurant, so I expected high prices, but this was particularly high based on the quality of the food/service. Probably wouldn’t go back with the exception of a summer lunch to have the pizzas.

    Our server was great. The pizza was soggy and full of olive oil if you like that, I don’t. Very expensive 29.00 for pasta with San Marzano sauce. We won’t be going back Also it was very disturbing when we arrived 15 min early for a reservation and they sent us upstairs which loud music coming from the deck while I asked for a quiet table as I am severely hearing impaired. There were so many tables available on the first floor of the restaurant and it took another 10 mi items for the host and hostess to take us to the quieter table on the first floor (by the kitchen bit at least quieter) Again, kudos to our great server. She was attentive, otherwise overpriced and not well managed

    Food, service and atmosphere were great! The chicken scarpiello, halibut with the lobster risotto and the pork chop were cooked to perfection. The roof top over looking the ocean can't be beat! Totally recommend it!

    Ordered a 2015 wine bottle and they served a 2017. Asked the server about it and the manager did nothing. Cacio e Pepe had 3lbs of black pepper and was inedible (3 people ordered it) Banana dessert was fair at best. Very disappointed after many good meals here.

    We shared a Filet and Red snapper. The food and service was excellent. Holding a conversation was reasonably easy. It was a very enjoyable night and fun to walk the boardwalk afterwards. We ate inside as the outside tables were full. I would certainly return.
