Food was cold and just ok for the price. Server was great and very accommodating.
We went on a quiet night during the off season. Food varied from good to very good. Wine list is interesting but definitely skews to expensive side . Excellent and very personable service both at the bar and in the dining room.
I had dinner with 3 friends on Saturday 3/7/20 at 8 pm. 2 entrees were beef and 2 entrees were seafood. Beef was overcooked and too charred. One seafood entree (salmon) was overdone but accompanying root veggies were delicious. 7 drinks were ordered among 4 people (2 martinis, 1 prosecco, 4 wine). The bill totaled $280 before $60 tip. So each person paid $85 for their meal, 2 drinks and tip. Way too pricey for quality. Entree was $40, drinks were $30, taxes $5, and tip $10 foe each guest.
I have been going to Sax since it opened. They have evolved into a patron friendly spot from their bar to their restaurant. The food quality has become much more even as has the service. This last, off season visit (my second in a month), was pure delight.
Had dinner on Sunday, great wedge salads, also had the braised short ribs, very well prepared. The reeds is the bomb.
The ambiance was excellent. While our server was skilled, her load was unreasonable. In addition to having too many tables, we saw her outside crossing the street to deliver room service. Tables sat after us were served quickly while we waited to even get water. The filet was ordered as medium and arrived at the table rare. The server had us take things off the plate so our guest could continue eating while they put the $40 piece of meat back on the grill. The chicken was dry and over cooked. This was a very disappointing meal.
We stayed at the hotel and wanted to try the restaurant. The food was so delicious and the server, Ashton who was so friendly and outgoing, suggested the menu items based on what she liked. She was right. I got the braised pork which was out of this world! Beautiful atmosphere to have the fireplace going. Very cozy. Staff was amazing and the food was perfect!
I had been here once before and had much better food-quality and service experience. My appetizer of brussell spouts was delicious. The entree of Paparadelle was uninspired, and the creme brulee was average at best. Granted, it was Valentine's Day weekend, so I suspected service to be sub-par, but we ate at 5:30pm, so I expected the food to be good.
The musician in the bar was WAY too loud for a fine dining experience.
I have to say, I'd looked forward to going back there, but I don't think I'll try it again.
Valentine’s Day not happy
Quite winter evening, a nice bottle of wine, blazing fireplace, and a very nice meal. Attentive but not fussy service, a very enjoyable visit.
My husband and I had a WONDERFUL dinner at Sax this evening. His pan seared local scallops and my cioppino were absolutely DELICIOUS. A special shout out to our server, Tim Mulligan, who made our visit extra special. Thank you Tim! See you again 👍🏼
NYE. For dinner. Price Fix menu, ran out of filet, 2 other choices 1 fish, 1 pork. Pork way overdone, halibut was dry
Understaffed making service very poor. The food was mediocre for the outrageous price. I had the scallops with Risotto. I was served 4 scallops and the risotto was inedible. Way too much spice among others things. Could not recommend.
Perfect for Christmas dinner w fireplace Nice respite
Lovely meal in a lovely setting..great service as well.
Food was great! Tom was an awesome server!
This was Thanksgiving buffet. The food was cold, the turkey was sliced turkey roll...nothing home made including the desserts. Overall, very disappointing!!!!
For Thanksgiving-the rooms were so cold my food was cold before I got it back to my table. A huge disappointment. Never again.
First class dining experience
Intimate and elegant setting. Attentive staff. Excellent menu. All six of us thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
We ate here because we stayed at The Reeds on this trip to the area in late Fall. Given the quality of The Reeds as a prime property in a prime beach resort, I just expected better. That said we were out of season and there were few others in the restaurant. Service was professional and pleasant and the food was good, just not at the level one would expect. We probably would not return given the availability of lots of other choices that we like better for the price.
Our server Tim Mulligan was absolutely a treasure.
Hope next time we dine with you he is our server
Very loud atmosphere. Service was slow and not attentive. Food was average to below average for the expense
Food was sub par for a hotel that bills itself as top notch. Waitress was nice but not attentive.
We made a reservation for 7pm. When we arrived, the hostess told us it would be a few minutes before our table was ready. We stood at the hostess stand for 15 minutes and then she told us to go to the bar because our table wasn’t ready. We went to the bar but there was no seats available at the bar so we stood. The hostess came back to get us about a half an hour later. There was also a wedding right next door with extremely loud music. Even when seated at our table, the music from the wedding was so loud we couldn’t hear each other speak. The food was bland and ordinary - nothing special here. We paid $140 for two and left very disappointed.
Very disappointed. Service was very slow. The drink for my wife was wrong and we already had our salad by the time she got her cocktail. The entrees were ok but we never received any bread. When we ordered coffee I asked our server if they served bread with the dinners she said yes and offered it to us with our coffee. She said it was very hectic but we couldn’t understand that with a 50% occupied restaurant. Lot’s to work on if they want to live up to their hype! Very overrated!
It was 1 hour from the time we were served our salads till the Entrees were delivered. Crab Cake was all filler.
We are residents here for 5 months and will not go again.
Went to Stone Harbor for a day of shopping and selected SAX for dinner. The room was lovely (would have been even better or a chilly winter evening with the fireplace on), our server - - Emily -- was fabulous and the food was delicious! There was a very active bar area which was also appealing
Enjoyed it thoroughly.
Burger was delicious and a great value. Fish was expensive but overcooked and only ok. Service was good, but not great for the level of the restaurant. But, we will be back because of the lovely, quiet ambiance.
This was a wonderful restaurant. We had an amazing meal and great wine. Our server was great even though the other server had called out sick that day and she was by herself and very busy. The restaurant is small and the food was fit for foodies. We would definitely go back.
The food and atmosphere were fabulous for my birthday dinner with my sons. I only gave the service a lower rating for the following reasons.Made a 6:30 reservation for 2 which I had to up to 3 and called around 5:45 pm.. Took over 6 minutes just to get a person on the line to change it. Very polite when I did get someone. When we got there no one was at the hostess stand and there was one or two servers assisting with the only 2-3 tables in the dining area. It took almost 10 minutes for someone to come up just to seat us. I even asked outside and the gentlemen out there said he could not help me, that was separate. Our server was very nice and informative once he did finally come to greet us. Luckily we are in the business and we understand lack of staff and longer waits after the summer season but a few staff saw us standing there for so long and no one ever asked about or said someone will be right with you. Ok, now on to the meal. It was fabulous from beginning to end. We had appetizer of tuna, chicken lettuce wraps and the truffle Mac and cheese. Our dinners were the salmon and branzino which were fresh and delicious. our desserts were the gold topped macaroons and chocolate/strawberry mousse cake. So all in all I do highly recommend SAX for the food.....just be careful that you may have to wait for the experience.
We were looking forward to showing off the deck to our friends for cocktails but a wedding party was using it. They really need to start telling patrons when we make a reservation that a wedding is scheduled. Inside bar is always packed and very noisy.
Dinner selections were just okay.
The parking (valet), service and meals were exemplary. The only downside was the room which overlooks the water was hosting a wedding. We were seated on the city-side. Should we return we’ll be sure that the water-view is available.
Service was somewhat slow, I thought an additional waiter or waitress would have been helpful - especially for a holiday weekend. Also there was a wedding in the room next to the restaurant and the noise level was uncomfortably loud.
The Wedge was excellent! The short ribs and meatloaf were tasty! Our server and his bus boy couldn't decide who was going to refill our bread basket, so we waited 10 minutes by that time we finished our meal. Very small dining room and tables were very close and it was very loud. Nothing special.
Tim is a terrific server!
Server, Tim, was really friendly - maybe a little TMI, but a good guy, and his service was thorough and timely. Atmosphere is refined, classy, but not fussy, and nicely lit. Walking in was a little crazy, because the bar next door was really loud, but not a lot of noise carried over into the restaurant. Food was just ok. Appetizers were good - loved the mac and cheese. Filet mignon, which was around $40, was tough and fatty; seafood combination-type dish was very small for the price. No excuse for that. Would go again, but maybe stick with appetizers and drinks because it was pricy for just ok, and there are other better places in the vicinity. Bar next door (part of same hotel) was hopping, but we had our teenager with us so couldn't stop in. Looked like fun!
Great food and great atmosphere! Our waiter, Tim, was the best!
