This is our favorite restaurant in town! The daily specials are always great, and items on the regular menu are delicious too. We especially like that we can get outside dining facing the ocean, since I am not quite "comfortable" with eating inside anywhere yet.

All our dishes were delicious! I would recommend the goat cheese croquettes, the salmon with curry pad thai and the carrot cheese cake.

First time at this restaurant. Great location and view from terrace. Happy hour available only at terrace, we were inside :( Friendly and courteous service but slow, main courses were brought at different times. Food is good but in my experience nothing outstanding.
I had the goat cheese croquette and a salmon kamikase roll, both just OK. Tried the Filet as a main course; I think kitchen can be more generous with sides presented with main course (asparagus & cauliflower mash).

Asked for a medium well burger with aoli sauce on the side. What I got was a medium rare burger with the sauce on the bun. The second burger I got was cooked better but they still didn’t get the memo about no aoli sauce. The spare rib dish was marginal. Everything in the dish was floating in some sort of oily liquid. Management was not overly concerned about the undercooked burger. Not again for me.

The ocean view table was the perfect background to a gorgeous dinner. Great service from valet, host, and server... This was the first restaurant we have visited since Covid lockdown, they made us feel safe. This restaurant is a 11 out of 10 all around!

Our server was awful. Visited this restaurant over ten times never experienced such a lax attitude. In this time when jobs are so hard to find I would think the employees would do their very best and restaurants would only hire their top candidates. Please re-evaluate the server.

We went as part of dine out Lauderdale! We got 4 courses for $35 which is a really good deal. Food came in small portions because of the deal. Only thing I really didn’t like was there were ZERO lights outside. It was pitch black. My table and the 2 tables next to us had to eat with our phone lights on. Service was good. Food was good.

Drinks were great and the happy hour is worth it. The dine out on the other hand is 100% not worth it. This is the first restaurant I’ve ever been to either on Miami Spice or the FTL dine out that literally cuts the portions by 1/2-3/4. Ive never seen a restaurant cut back like this. The main meals were served on small salad plates. The salmon pad Thai which was tasty, however was served cold not once but two times. The waitress who was very nice said the dish should have been hot. I would only return to this restaurant for drinks in the future. There are way to many better restaurants on FTL beach.

Really great food but for some reason it was crazy dark. We sat around 9:30 but could barley see anything. My only suggestion would be to give a little bit more light but otherwise I love this place!!

I got the s3 burger. Burger was good but the fries were soggy. Wished they had sweet potato fries as a sub. The goat cheese croquettes were amazing! Thanks to our waiter for the recommendation and the tacos were so good according to my boyfriend. Just the right portion. Will come back again.

If you like sushi, the beach, and amazing cocktails, look no further. It sure is pricey, but for a “treat yourself” occasion... this place is amazing.

I was really looking forward to this place but it was so disappointing we won’t be back. Hostess at check in for our reservation was not friendly or accommodating. I asked to sit outside by the water and apparently all at least 10 open tables were supposedly reserved. The food was nothing memorable and the drinks flat out sucked. The only positives were the super friendly waitress and manager that came by to check on us.
