    We had 8:15 reservation. Several tables open but we were made to wait until 8:15. Got there at 8:00. Server (male blond hair) was less that enthusiastic- could tell it was the end of his shift- hostesses very nice. Oysters and tuna with jalapeño appetizer fabulous! Chicken dish tender but no potato puree underneath; maybe a tablespoon tops; mentioned it to service and he said ok and walked away- don’t ask how are things and then when we tell you just walk away. Mushroom risotto was A+ caramel dessert was off the hook we will go back again and hope it to be a full 5.0. Food and wine list wonderful

I savored every bite and had a huge smile on my face the entire time! The appetizers we got were super good! All this with a gorgeous view of the Ocean. Can’t beat it!

    Overall a good experience. I would have expected more seafood entrees. The menu seemed to be geared to the "crude" section, with a lot of raw fish. There were only several choices for hot appetizers. We had the special 32oz bone in ribeye which was excellent. The seared scallops were also very good, but somewhat overpriced at $42 for three scallops. Broiled oysrers were very good. I'd recommend the restaurant with some reservations based upon my previous comments

    Always a great place meal. Although lots of folks order steaks, the fish is some of the best in the county. The sushi platter is done to perfection and the sable fish is equally well prepared. The chef is very creative and his most recent Caesar salad is memorable and delicious. One thing often missing is an optional bread service (which I'd happily pay up for) however this time the kitchen was kind enough to make some of their garlic toast available at a fair price.

The food as always was outstanding. My husband had the prime steak and u had the scallops. Both were prepared just perfectly. It was a great evening and wonderful way to say good bye to 2023
