    A nice outdoor setting on the water and friendly, attentive service are the main attractions of The Cove, but the fish choices on the menu were disappointingly sparse.

    I came to the Cove because it was a hot day and I thought it would be cool by the water and I remembered the food was good as well as the ambience. What I had forgotten was just how HORRIBLE the service was!!! This was a first date so from a scenic standpoint the vibe was perfect. The first problem was when we ordered oysters. The three choices were west coast, east coast and blue point. We chose east coast and the server said “so blue point” to which I replied “no, east coast” but since he said the blue point was his favorite we went with his recommendation. I asked for tobasco and he said “it comes with it. It did not and it took us 10 minutes to get tobasco. There was one waiter for about 40 tables and a girl who, although very nice, did not speak English. So I had to get out my phone to translate tobasco and also ask for hose radish. When we wanted to order a second glass of wine we had to wait 20 minutes for someone to come to our table. The waiter didn’t want to be bothered with us. We finally got the girls attention and asked for a dessert menu. She brought over the regular menu. FINALLY the waiter showed his face and read us verbally the dessert choices. Around 10:30-11:00, a young, and definitely less upscale crowd began rolling in which had no effect on me whatsoever but definitely noticeable. The food, great. The wine, mediocre. The scenery and vibe, excellent. The service, zero stars.

    Great food, though the price reflects the waterfront scenery. Service was atrociously bad. Our server was just stretched too thin to give us any attention. Nice guy and not his fault, but I would not come back here on a busy night.

    I took my mother here for Mother's Day for the first time ever and was very happy with our experience. We sat outside where they had heaters on a nice but cloudy day. The service was fairly attentive, atmosphere was lovely, and most importantly, the food was delicious. I would definitely come back.

    Great appetizers—calamari and octopus expertly cooked, as were the meatballs. Entrees good too—but the special (lobster and pasta) while tasty, was extremely overpriced.

    The venue is great and food never disappoints although it’s not fine dining, it definitely lives up to my expectations. The music is great, staff is wonderful, lights and ambiance are awesome. Everything is really good except for two points. The restrooms are a little dingy, not cleaned or maintained well, and the ventilation/odors are not good. I wish they would improve on that as it makes a huge difference. Second, it’s a little too pricey, value is not as good. However everything else is excellent. My family and I have been loyal patrons for the last 12 years and we plan on coming back for regular dining as well as special occasions as we always have.

    The service and food were outstanding. My wife did not care for her dish and they were very attentive and went out of their way to take it off the bill and sent a complimentary dessert. They left you with the impression that they value their costumers. Highly recommend it for especially now which is their off season.

    The cove has great ambiance and succulent food. Everything we ordered was delicious. From the hummus dip , fried calamari. Main dishes baby lamb chops ( mouth watering) salads pasta seafood and chicken dish. I will definitely go back to eat outside when warmer. Such nice views. Inside was beautiful but the music was so loud it was hard to have real conversations. But next time I will eat outside where it’s not so loud
