This restaurant was great all around. My reservation was 1230 but they took us 30 minutes early. I made a note that it was a special occasion and they accommodated us with a great table with a beautiful view of the ocean. Service was spectacular. I went for brunch on a Saturday. I’m definitely spreading the word about this great restaurant!

My husband and I went for our anniversary. The service was wonderful, the food was excellent and the view was spectacular! We had a beautiful sunset dinner watching the waves crash against the shore enjoying the grilled octopus and lobster bisque for appetizers and the petite filet and scallops for our entrees! All highly recommended!

Contrary to previous reviews I read about this place not being safe in times of pandemic, I would say otherwise. The staff and the guests wear masks; even the people who check in the hotel wear masks. There were hand sanitizers everywhere, by the doors, elevators and by the restaurant. We went here to celebrate our Anniversary and booked the sunset/dinner reservation. Patrick, our server was the best! He made our anniversary experience remarkable. He has broad knowledge on wines and made suggestions on what to pick and we sure loved it! The food was superb! We ordered the Octopus for appetizer, Scallops and Filet Mignon for our main course and we finished all of it! The price is expensive but it makes up for the delicious meal and the view. This restaurant is situated near the ocean and we were seated outside, the beautiful sunset and waves splashing completes the whole experience. Only thing is that the other table were so loud that even when there was social distancing in place, we heard their whole conversation from start to finish. Would we dine here again? Absolutely. But we will probably reserve it for special occasions.

The food was top notch. We had the Salmon with the whipped potatoes....YUM! The potatoes come in a canning jar with lid and they were so cute. They were a hit. Because it was our anniversary, they surprised us with dessert.....a Creme Brulee which was delicious. We were seated on their patio and watched the sun set, very romantic.

We celebrated our anniversary here. The view from our table was amazing at sunset. I had the lobster bisque and my husband had the heirloom tomato salad. They were both delicious. We shared the lamb chops which were small but delicious. We paid for an extra lamb chop so we had 2 each. We also ordered the Brussel sprouts and wild mushrooms. They were both really good. Our server was excellent. We got a free creams brûlée’s to celebrate our anniversary. It was a great dinner at a great location.

My wife and I LOVE Splashes food, ambience and staff. We did have one issue recently with one staff member unfortunately but will not let one bad apple ruin a review for a fabulous restaurant with a fabulous staff (other than one person who shall remain nameless for now). : )

Thanks to all @ Splashes. We enjoyed every second and every meal.

I was disappointed with my reservation. I had a special guest with a birthday and wanted to make it very special. I picked your restaurant because of the views. I RSVP way in advanced and asked for your best table to see the sunset. When we arrived we were seated at a table in a corner that was blocking the sunset by a large block post and the upstairs overhang. Very disappointing :(
We ordered our dinner and my partner's fish was over cooked and dry. My scallops were amazing.
The table we sat at was wobbling side to side, so my partner took a napkin to balance the table. Quite embarrassing for me since I was trying to make his birthday really special. :(

I was not impressed overall, I just hope that these things get fixed for the next people that reserve a spot there to eat.

The food and drinks were amazing! The local mixed lettuce salad is by far the best salad I’ve ever had and our filet and scallops were just as great! The entire staff was so nice and friendly! We definitely felt comfortable with the staff and how they are taking the extra steps with the pandemic.

The menu is very limited, the outdoor seating at 5pm, with a reservation, was so close to other tables that you can hear every word spoken by the couple of across from you. We ate here three years ago and had an amazing dinner. This was pricey and not really a fine dining experience at all. No cloths on the table, no ambience other than the ocean. Specials are on the menu, so not really all that special. Portions very small, protein meager, whipped potatoes only carb side, I would go to Mastros next time.

Spent our anniversary here. We were very pleased. We like fine dining and this met our needs. Free cream brûlée for our anniversary without even telling the server he knew just based on our open table reservation. Attention to detail is amazing. Good, atmosphere, ambiance, location and service was excellent. Beyond excellent. We were very happy to spend our anniversary evening here.

I tried the Chef's special of the day and wasn't pleased. The swordfish was dry and the sides had only the taste of butter.My husband had the salmon which was good. He didn't like the strawberry severed with it. On the website it said Wednesdays was chef's tasting menu which is why we made the reservation, but there is no such thing anymore.

Wonderful place. Saw it on HGTV's "Flip or Flop" and had to try it. We had been looking for some place special to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. Great food, great service, great view. Everyone treated us great. Valet, Concierge, Greeter, Servers, but especially our Hostess, Jhoana. She treated us like royalty. A casual observer could be forgiven for thinking we owned the place. We are world travelers and have eaten in restaurants on four continents and two island nations. We have been served in five star restaurants and from the back of village tricycles, but we have never had service like we experienced at Splashes. We were very impressed. We will definitely be back soon, only next time we plan to spend a few days at the Sun and Sand Resort as well. Thank you all for a wonderful experience.
