    Great location with good amount of parking. My wife and I had a good time. Good also tasted good. Found a bit odd that the server complained that it is “required” to tip at least 10% of the bill as a restaurant rule. This was despite my wife getting the wrong order. Not a big deal, but thought it’s important to note the requirement even though the receipt says “suggested”. Will definitely go back though. It was a good experience overall.

    My visit was on Father's Day so the restaurant was full. No waiter in sight for us well into half hour after at our table until we asked where our waiter was. No brunch offering I am guessing because of Fathers Day. Prefix Father's Day menu was very overpriced (in my opinion) at 75.00 per person for three courses. Service was SLOW. I mean VERY SLOW. No one even came to acknowledge this and set our expectations. I NEVER write bad reviews but since this place wants to charge lots of money then I expect better service and exceptional food quality. Very disappointed.

    We came for Father’s Day, the staff was nice and we were seated promptly at a nice table. The entrees took a long time to come out , and my salmon and couscous were cold. We waited so long I didn’t want to make a scene so just ate it and left.

    I’m celiac and need to eat gluten free or I will get very sick. They messed my salmon covering it in bread crumbs. That’s fine, honest mistake. But then they brought a new one out where the salad was covered in them. They clearly didn’t remake the salad, only the salmon. Completely ignoring my food allergy. The owner was completely useless and didn’t care. Don’t go here if you have an allergy!!!

    My daughter was super excited to bring her friends for her birthday. I had made a reservation and clearly requested to sit outside and I was told they would make every effort to accommodate us outside if they didn't have guests already outside when we arrive. Once we are there, our request was not honored even though there were 5 or 6 empty tables outside. We were seated at a long table that had already been set up for us inside. So our request was totally dismissed. We had two tables one with 11 young ladies and a separate table of two for us moms. We are seated, order our drinks and the food took over an hour to come out and when it did, 4 meals were still missing which took an additional 20 minutes. The waiter was very nice and apologetic about the whole situation but not one effort from the managers or owners not sure who they were, but they walked around the whole place the entire time, and not once did they check on us to offer an apology, an explanation, maybe a free appetizer or at the very least waive the $30 they charged me for cutting our cake. I did not request any of these things be done for us as I just wanted to be out of there and never be back. If they are short-staffed, or whatever the reason might be, at least be upfront about it and bring out bread, french fries whatever so you don't have hungry guests waiting for over an hour for their food. Poorly run a restaurant, such a shame because it is beautiful and the ambiance is nice.

    Our drinks arrived quite a while after our meal. I ordered a sparkling wine & it arrived flat. Both my partner & I ordered fish & chips. The fish coating was a little soggy, but the fish tasted good. Fries were delicious. The ambiance is just spectacular.

    The place was nicely decorated and clean. The food was average. We waited twenty minutes for a waiter before Harry a waiter from another section saw that we were getting annoyed and came to our aid. He couldn’t find our waiter and took us on himself, nice job. The place had two parties going and the music was awfully loud that we couldn’t speak at our table. We left with headaches because of the noise. The manager was not approachable we asked to see him but sent a receptionist in his place, probably because he knew we were not pleased. Also $50 for a bottle of wine is outrageous.

    This place has gone downhill as far as food and service. It used to be one of our favorite places to go for a lobster roll and gorgeous views. Don't know what happened but we will probably not go back.

    We booked for a belated Mother’s Day family gathering. We wanted a water side seafood place and this is close a family member’s so we ventured to check. View is great and service is wonderful. We were seated in a great location by the bar facing opening glass door patio. The server was carrying a beautiful smile and well attended the whole time. The food well, I cannot compliment. The steam lobster was dry and the corn was tasteless Judged by the way it was arranged, the corn must have been sitting in the steamer more than a week and just reheated hundred times. I recommend to go for a bar drink a little munches for the view. Not the food. The ambiance was nice airy though.

    Food seems to have improved after a previous visit. Shrimp tacos were really good and the strawberry margarita was yummy. Since the table was a bit small for four of us, the owner/manager was kind enough to put two tables together to make us comfortable. Much appreciated. The servers were great and very accommodating. Will go back for sure!

    Beautiful view! Wonderful, open, airy atmosphere. Pleasant and friendly staff. Great music! Food was terrific, although scallops were fried, but the fish entre was excellent, the burger melts in your mouth, the appetizers were pricey but delicious. Drink prices are high except for the beer. Highly recommend and would definitely return.

    Our waiter was less than acceptable. He would get lost during the meal so we could not hind him. When he did appear we had to remind him to bring certain items. The food was ok. But the service was definitely not.

    I have mixed feelings about my dining experience. The inside is too loud since they have private parties on the second floor and you can hear everything, from music to laughs…Ugh! The loud noise was def annoying. I’ll try the outside next time. Staff can be better trained, but our waiter (Nick) tried his best and was pleasant. Bass boy (girl in our case) took away our plates while we were eating without even asking us if we were done. No apology given. We told our waiter about it and we hope he notified the bass boy. We just laughed about it! The food was delicious! We ordered the burrata, oysters, guacamole and arugula salad as Appetizers. We ordered for entrees the whole lobster, churrasco and lobster roll. Everything was fresh and simply delish! Overall, not sure if I would come back. I loved the food, but staff need better training.

    If I could give them 0 stars I would! After we were seated it took a half hour for a server to even come over to take drink orders. So when she came over we put our full order in. We told her there was a gluten allergy and asked about the preparation of some of the foods. She didn’t check with anyone but confidently said yes those aren’t breaded just in oil. And continued to let us order tons of food that isn’t gluten free to the point where I couldn’t even eat the food. She was unapologetic when we told her and said well everything here is fried so I can have them make tacos on lettuce wraps. I said ok is the shrimp and sauce gluten free to which she said I don’t know about the sauce and then I said can a chef or manager come so we can ask what’s safe so I don’t get sick and she not only dodged the question but stood there like a deer in headlights. In other news another member of our party got vinegar rancid wine and when she told the waitress she smelled it to see if it actually was instead of just believing her. She brought her a new drink but it took another 20 mins after the first round of drinks took 40 mins. At this point it’s almost 2 hours in - one of us can’t eat, we’ve been waiting for long amounts of time, and the food that they could eat was sub par at best. The guac tasted like grocery story packaged guac and it was not made by the restaurant and the crab seemed to have come from a can because it was wet and flavorless. We even ordered a second round of drinks before the food came out and we realized all of the food issues and then 40 mins later they still had not arrived. We went and found our waitress and said can you please cancel that round of drinks and bring us the check. 10 mins later she shows up to the table with the drinks and we say we cancelled those and asked for the check. She says oh you cancelled them I didn’t know! The manager is a jerk and was helping a bunch of old white men and didn’t care at all about how bad our experience was!

    I should have followed the yelp reviews about this place when it stated that food never comes to your table. This place doesnt deserve to be on opentable for reservations! Now let me tell you my dining experience with this place. Waiter came to take our order. We placed it right away, our drinks and appetizers came. Manager and waiter came to each table and asked hows everything. We said yes coz it was going great at first. UNTIL, 30 mins latee, we realized our food hasnt arrived. Then my partner noticed one server was lost and confused on who’s food he was bringing it to. The bartender pointed it to our table. SERVER only brought MY FOOD and we informed him about my partner’s order and said he will go check and come back. But we saw him bringing out food for other tables. My parntner told me to eat my food and well wait. 20 mins later, still no food for him. I got up and spoke to the manager and he asked what table, no apology whatsoever. Our waiter noticed that I was talking to the manager and within 5 mins he brought my partner’s food. That was like after speaking to 3 people about our order. Never again. WORST SERVICE EVER!!! Applebee’s would have done a better job in getting the food out!

    Don't order anything. Our table had 2 orders of calamari and 2 orders of mussels. Portions extremely small for the price. Dont get the Lobster roll unless you like only 2 ounces of lobster mix. Fisherman's platter had small scallops yhat went from the freezer into the fryer and both orders were raw. Don't even look to talk to anyone cause nobody is there to help. Especially the manager. There is to much to write about how bad this place was

    We brought my mom her for her 88th birthday. She had been there many times before and it was my wife and my first time. The view is spectacular and almost worth going just for that. However, though the food was good, the service and presentation was horrible. My mother was dismayed by the smaller portions than they used to have and shocked by the way things were presented. For example, shrimp cocktail appetizer came on a white plate by themselves with no garnish. They forgot our coleslaw and brought out very small containers, something I would put a side of mustard in with almost no coleslaw in it. The impression we got was that they had new owners, servers and kitchen help and no one know what they were doing. The noise was off the charts. We almost left before our food arrived it was so bad. We got the food and no one ever checked on us. We will not be returning.
