The location was great. Food was good however it needed a bit more flavor. Service was slow even though the restaurant was not busy.

Yes, the atmosphere is wonderful. The view beautiful- The restaurant very relaxing -
The service was very pleasant, however somewhat slow- Need more wait staff-
Want to go in the evening and sit on the patio and watch the sun go down- It seems to be the perfect spot for this.

Overall good, would recommend. Need to up the number of servers + improve the food quality. Menu is fine, just poorly executed. Servers were friendly just swamped. Amazing setting - just need to up food quality and service level - all the best!

If you're staying in the area then its not a bad place to eat. We went with a group of 4 for a birthday party and sat on the patio near the fireplace, which was very nice. The service was very slow and forgot to bring our drinks to the table twice. We ended up only having one drink as the waiter only came back every 40 minutes. We asked if we could get a dessert with a candle for our friends birthday and they never brought it nor brought the desert menu when we asked. We ended up just getting our bill at the front and leaving because our server never came back. Definitely wasn't a good spot to celebrate a birthday.

Location is nice, food is ok, unfortunately I cannot say the same of the service.
Very slow but also not at the level you expect from a nice place!
Just to give a sense, we had to ask water several time during the dinner.....

The food menu is too limited and the taste is bland. Although, the location by the Marina is beautiful so, it is a great place to have nibbles and drinks with friends, especially at the outside tables/couches. They also validate parking - a big plus.

Food quality has gone down since the last time I've been there. Our server tried really hard to keep up with the patrons but there was only one of him taking care of a huge area. Food was mediocre. They view was the only saving grace.

I have been patronizing this establishment for several years. This past Sunday was awful. The waiter service was poor because they did not have enough working that day and the food was terrible. The valet attendant is gone and so are the coy fish. The manager did take some money off of the bill acknowledging that they were having a bad day. I will probable not return.

The brunch was very mediocre especially for the $50/person cost. The only great thing about the brunch is that it’s located on the beautiful marina. Other than that, I did not care for it and won’t be returning.

You should add a "maybe" to whether we would recommend. The service was great, as well as the setting. Seafood was first class, as was my omelette. However, fruit and dessert was below par.

We had a reservation at 10:30 but showed up earlier was seated immediately. But our food took over 35 mins for breakfast in and un-crowned restaurant with only three other small party tables. The food was good, fresh and was warm. But when we were about to leave, and cashing out our tab, we paid cash and the returning change was noticeable short. I have never experienced a restaurant that took its own tips for two guests , or maybe it was just our server/busboy Christopher. Very upset about this dining experience

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am sorry to hear about the delays you experienced with receiving your food, and will be following up with our team. As a restaurant, it is our standard to round up and down in terms of coin change when processing cash payments. We apologize if this was not communicated to you, we had no intention to give you the impression of "shorting" you on your coin change. We will ensure our staff efficiently communicates this moving forward. -WR

We went to celebrate our parents 50th wedding anniversary. They didn’t even mention it. We were seated and waited 10 minutes for a server to come to the table. I told the hostess and she helped. Someone came to take our drink order and then NOTHING happened for ever. We got up numerous times to get ourselves stuff but I had my two kids with me and they were starving so leaving and going somewhere else would be a wait. We then got a new waiter who was nice but after not ordering for 45 minutes, the food then didn’t come for another 45 mins. Brussel sprouts weren’t fully cooked, scallops over cooked, ceviche tasted like soap. Is this place closing? It felt like they just gave up. We were going to do something special at desert for the anniversary but I couldn’t be there anymore.

We just missed the Sunset dinner. That is a deal. We had the ribeye and the cobb salad and split both.
Did not like the Sofia Coppala rose.

Enjoyed sitting there overlooking the water.

I truly enjoyed visiting this establishment. I was surprised by the ambiance and the outdoor sitting area when you first walk up. It was a very nice experience. Our food was great, the service was superb, and I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a great brunch on a Sunday morning. I don't remember the price but I believe we each paid close to $50.00 if not more for the experience but it was well worth it. The only thing I disliked is that I heard they were able to warm the crab legs when the place was Shanghai Reds and now they can no longer do that. It was fine though because they have warm butter at the waffle and carving station. I'm looking forward to returning.

Beautiful setting on the marina. Sat inside because it was cold and windy. Took over 5 minutes to have somebody seat us and another 10 minutes to actually get a waiter. Tables near the windows were never cleared - nobody seemed to car. Waiter was fine, but it appeared that the staff was more interested in what was going on in bar area. Not very crowded and I can see why. Limited menu. Waste of a great view.

First, the front of house staff was at all times very helpful and solicitous. Nothing bad to say about the service. Food and drinks are on the high side for what you get. $16 for 5 medium sized shrimp in the shrimp cocktail. The lobster roll was okay, though the lobster was a bit chewy, and the roll was too much bread for the quantity of lobster. Our dining companions had an allergy to garlic and were *very clear* about this when ordering their hamburgers, but both came with BBQ sauce, which contains garlic. When recooked, the burgers came out well done, rather than the medium rare that were ordered. By that time they were so hungry they ate them. The third burger was ordered medium, and came out medium rare. All three were removed from the bill, but it made what could have been a lovely dining experience more stressful than it should have been. It's a lovely physical setting on the water, but the food should be better. Or cheaper. Or both.
