    The Sardine Factory did not disappoint even though we asked for the Captains Room and we were told it was hosting a party that night. Mary and Teddy were able to seat us in a nice area between the bar and said room. Don our waiter was attentive and punctual. We have been coming here for 40 years so it would take a lot to disappoint. Keep up the good work!

    Wonderful, as always. Love the ambiance and the service is top notch. Brandon and Ignacio made sure we had everything we needed and paced our meal perfectly. First time to try the Seafood Pasta Marina. Jam packed with seafood and the sauce was so good, I wanted to turn up the bowl and drink it!

    Food was unfortunately very bland, my seafood pasta was covered in white butter sauce with so much basil and no seasoning. Unfortunately it was not very tasty
