    The food was delicious and the service was great. Our only complaint is that they turned the music way up while we were eating dinner, around 7pm, and we had to yell to have a conversation. After 8 or 9pm would have been more appropriate.

    We went for brunch and the food was very good but the brunch menu felt too limited. No drinks were listed as part of the brunch menu and there wasn't a single sweet option (eg pancakes, waffles or french toast). Skewed much more towards lunch.

    Excellent sushi and great atmosphere but service is very hit and miss. Whilst the live DJ is a great addition the music level is just a tiny bit too high as it makes it hard to hear the servers/wait staff and also a big hard to have easy conversations at your own table.

    The ambience is nice. The food not so good. Ordered the linguine with clams and the salmon and both were tasteless . Very bland . The wine I ordered came after dinner. Not sure if the place was understaffed but the service was not great . Hopefully next time we will have a better experience.

    We sat outside even though we requested inside but it was breezy so we didn’t mind. Cocktails were good . Octopus was DELICIOUS . Staff didn’t really understand menu and “another drink” because a second round never came . They asked us for dessert 3 times even though we declined the first time. I would come back for octopus. Burger wasn’t as good as i hoped. Little sliders were good. Squid ink pasta with lobster had just enough kick with flavor. The iced twin lobster tails is a joke and shouldn’t be allowed to be ordered due to the size. The fries were supposed to come with ole spice but didn’t.

    Beautiful setting. Sat outside under a tent and stayed dry despite the downpour. Food was mediocre at best. Salad by far the best item. Sushi was awful. Sliders were fair/edible but not memorable. Chicken was just ok and calamari was stiff. D Waiter was abrupt and never around. Water staff spoke no English and couldn't answer simple questions. Drinks were minimal portions. Very tiny amounts and cocktails full of ice. Live music ruined the ambience. So loud we couldn't talk at the table at 8 pm. Worth a visit but not running back anytime soon.

    The Cove is a restaurant for every occasion, whether it’s just a night out, a celebration, or a search for excellent tasting food that is exceptionally presented. The entire staff is friendly and helpful, always trying to be aware of your every need. Your water glass is filled before you realize you need more, your napkin is folded for you when you leave the table, and after your first bite, your wait person asks if it is satisfactory. An exceptional experience.

    Absolutely loved this spot with excellent service, outstanding food - it all tastes delicious, as if it’s homemade - fresh fish, the baked halloumi with fig jam and honey was incredible and the olive oil cake was extraordinary! The Negroni and cappuccino were divine! DJ Geo Roc made the night extra impressive with amazing tunes. Just the right mix and it started slowly, still being able to enjoy conversation while wanting to get up and dance by the end of the meal! The view was beautiful and the breeze spectacular. Highly recommend for date night, girls’ night out, just meeting over a drink and any special occasion!!

    Good food in a good location. Their outdoor sitting is very pleasant and the staff is friendly and efficient. Off to a slow start but once they took our order food and drinks came quickly. Will definitely go again.

    Food was decent but very small portions for the price. Left there not satisfied. Service was very slow. If you wanted something extra it took a very long time to get their attention. Ordered two of the same drinks and got two different drinks but no one around to let them know. I told them it was my daughter‘s birthday. Typically in my experience for a birthday they give a small dessert with a candle free of charge. They charged me $12 for the dessert which is fine, but if they were charging me $12, they should have at least ask what we would like. Bathrooms were dirty. Pretty view was the best thing I could say about this place. Will not be returning.
