Allison our waiter was informative, attentiand fun. Atmosphere was perfect for our date night. As for the food, at was the best dinner I have had in a while. Portion was more than most restaurants. Food was clean, lively, and very fresh. Cannot wait to go back.

Atmosphere was great and so was the swordfish. Conch fritters were scorched and server said that is how they always are. We asked her to take them back. (You really could not get over the charred taste to enjoy them.) My husband got the yellowfin tuna and is was overcooked after the server said it would be rare, as he likes it. It was served medium. Parking was an absolute joke too. Friends dropped us off at the front door and could not find anywhere to park (not even in the parking garage). They had to park next door.

Place, service and ambience is wonderful. Our entrees were not. Mahi Mahi was terribly dry and overcooked, as was the Swordfish. Very disappointing. The crab bisque soup was great but the conch fritters were also over deep fried - almost burnt.
Love this place, but they need to get a handle on over-cooking their seafood.

This is the second time I’ve been here and this time was nothing like the first 4 years ago. Service was good, but my husbands and my food wasn’t very good. Very dry and bland. We will not be revisiting

Food rather poor, matches the service - not much more to tell ... price for money ratio is poor. As is the overall experience ... would not come back

Wonderful atmosphere, amazing aquarium. Our waiter was nice. 2 small things our meal was delivered while still eating the appetizers. Our waiter caught this and had the food brought back to the kitchen and put under the warmer. This is a pet peeve of mine and takes away from the freshness. If the kitchen staff is that quick with meal prep, why can't the waiter hold off putting in the order accordingly. Second, I ordered a cappuccino and our waiter said that he would be delighted to make one if the machine was fixed. When he dropped off the cappuccino, it was obviously a black coffee with a squirt of whipped cream on top. Unacceptable, esp. at 6 bucks a pop. No excuses, I would have loved a black coffee if the machine wasn't fixed. Not an underhanded scam.

The food was a bit bland. You pay the “resort tax” for eating here. Food across the street is better and $10/plate less.

The aquarium is what made us want to go there... but the food is why we will return in the future.
The jerk swordfish, bouillabaisse and Lobster ravioli was all excellent. Highly recommended!

A beautiful restaurant with the best service around! Drinks were delicious. Maybe shake up the cioppino recipe as the adobe sauce makes the seafood disappear in the dish. Better as the bouillabaisse in my opinion. The grouper was amazing and scallops too. Can’t say enough about the amazing service and that view!

We had an amazing experience. Wish we could’ve seen the tank more, we were lucky to get a table close to the Fish tank wall but we were unable to really see it because of all of the standing going on while people are waiting for their tables to open up. but I understand parents wanting to keep their kids calm and walk them up to the fish tank wall but other than that it was great. Our server was great and the food was delicious. We will be back and we will be recommending. Thank you

If you are going to charge almost $100 for 2 dinners you should not allow screaming children in there after lunch time. Ruined our night for sure...steak was very raw as well. We will not be back

First time visit for my birthday, sent filet mignon back twice for improper cook. Ordered it medium, received it well done then rare, purple in middle. Dad ordered salmon, the asian noodles served with the fish were so over cooked, texture was like a cold teriyaki pudding in your mouth, really gross.

Lobster was on point as was the waitress. On duty manager didn’t visit the table even after the kitchen screwed up two filets at $35 a plate! Waitress did comp us the steak but a table side visit from a manager would have been professional. Will not return.

Great food and great service! Unfortunately there was a screaming toddler at a nearby table that takes away from the ambiance. Maybe the owners could consider a family seating area for children so they can also see the beautiful aquarium.

Our waitress was great! The food came to the table hot, it just was not that great, I would expect this food experience at a Chilli's or longhorn where its good but when you pay $27 for a small piece of fish with some rice I feel it should at least taste fresh and seasoned well as if a chef prepared it.

We had been at a previous vacation in 2018 and had remembered it ws really good food and the restaurant was very nice. This time while the restaurant was nice, the aquarium amazing, the food was bland, tasteless and just not very good. For $70 for 2 entrees, it just is not worth the money. We won't go next time we are in town.
