    The food and service were very good. The tables are very close together. Just not a lot of privacy. There was also a very strong smell -not a good smell in the restaurant. It smelled like bad seafood :( The food was good - we all had a steak but overall overpriced for dinner.

    Our server was outstanding (I regret not writing down her name.). Hostess gave us a great table by the fireplace. Only disappointment was that my salmon was over cooked. I should have asked for temp at medium but usually that is the way it is served, so I didn’t think to ask. Also, lobby bartender was fantastic and we loved the musician! We’ll be back!

    We went there on Thanksgiving as we decide not to cook this year. The restaurant was very busy but service was great. We each ordered the thanksgiving dinner special. It included most of everything you would expect for such a dinner and the quantity and quality was impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and happily had leftovers to take home. Thank you for such an enjoyable dinner and we appreciated all the wonderful people that work that night to provide such a feast.

    The restaurant itself is very nice but so noisy. The wedding in the next room was a distraction with the music. The food was very bland. Our dinner came out before we finished the appetizer. Overpriced for a mediocre meal. Our server was great!

    Sax is a lovely restaurant. Our waiter and service was excellent. However the meal was just ok. The calamari was limp and undercooked , the shrimp and scallops pasta dinner had very little flavor. The bread on the table was delicious and the dessert pumpkin bread pudding and my cappuccino coffee were the highlight. Way too expensive for just a mediocre meal , sorry too say.

    One of the best restaurants in Stone Harbor. Intimate setting and cozy. The food was proportional with high end presentation served fast and hot. It is attacked to the Waterside Grill with quality food a bit more relaxed with outdoor seating on the bay. I would put both restaurants on you "foodie" list to visit!

    Braised ribs and shrimp and scallops dishes were good to very good but they’re not enough servers so you wait for even simple things. The wait staff is doing their very best but just short handed overall If you go, sit down before 6:15

    This was our first time visiting sax for our 1 year anniversary. I had put that info in the special occasion section when I made the reservation online and when we checked in the hostess wished us happy anniversary as did our server (Patrick- who was amazing) when we got to the table. He even put a candle in our dessert when bringing it to the table at the end of our meal. Everything was timely, Patrick kept the drinks flowing, and gave us time to enjoy our apps before the entrees came out. Overall great experience and a perfect place for a romantic dinner to celebrate a special occasion :)

    Beach town newer restaurant. Have dined here many many times Unfortunately last evening a bust. And to compensate our poor experience ( my meal did not come so I shared my husbands after waiting 20 minutes) SAX offered free dessert. How about free 1 dinner we shared. This is another example of difficulty getting trained staff.

    Service was spotty. Needed to remind servers of drink orders, etc. Not what I expected from a high end boutique restaurant. Need to step up. Food was okay. Flavor profile could be improved. The honey ice cream on dessert menu was a stand out.

    Ambiance is phenomenal. The location and setting are ideal. As far as the food and service, it was a disappointment. I had a salad and requested no dressing and cheese due to food allergies. Sadly, my salad came with cheese so I had to eat around that. We were a group of 4 and we were not blown away by any of our entrees for this price point. Do not order the calamari as the two from our group who had that had severe stomach issues. Although the location and ambiance were lovely, I think there are better options in Stone Harbor.

    Our reservation was a Sat. night at 7. We walked out and never ate there. There was a wedding with 200 people that night. Many of those guests did not stay in the banquet room, but crowded the inside entrance in front of SAX. The lobby and lobby bar were so full we had to push through to get to SAX. It was so loud you had to yell to be heard. I mean LOUD with music and voices. Inside SAX was no better. There was no sound buffer between the noise and restaurant. When we were seated, it was clear we would have had a really bad experience. They had the tables packed so tightly together and it was full to capacity. None of it was safe if you are cautious about COVID. And we couldn't even hear each other speak. We told the hostess we couldn't stay because it was a really poor atmosphere. I was very disappointed because we were ALSO GUESTS at the hotel. I feel they completely disregarded other PAYING guests for the sake of the wedding. I was looking forward to a cocktail in the bar before dinner and a nice dinner after, which was not too much to ask for the amount of money we were paying for the room. The Reeds is quite expensive and it was a special treat for us. Clearly the facility is not spacious enough to handle such large crowds. The lack of care to even attempt to service other paying guests and visitors to SAX left me highly disappointed. I think the impression they gave by disregarding other guests for the sake of the wedding party left me soured. I caution you before you make a reservation. If you are expecting a nice, relaxing, quiet, or COVID friendly experience where you have breathing room, then don't go when there is a wedding reception scheduled. The space inside the restaurant and lobby is just not large enough to accommodate so many people. And on a busy Sat. night, it is hard to find another place to eat in Stone Harbor without a reservation, which put us at a disadvantage.
