View Ratings and Reviews
I went there a number of times over the past few months. The bar is great for a drink before and after dinner. They have live music on Saturday night. The food is delicious and there's something for everyone. The staff is very nice and the be service is excellent.
We could not have been happier with our dinner. Everything was wonderful; the service and staff were all very friendly and attentive. The food was exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, have already recommended to friends, and will be returning for sure.
The service is always fantastic as is the location on the bay. The food is delicious, and I was happy to see a vegetarian option on the menu for restaurant week. I hope more vegetarian choices and perhaps a vegan option will be available in the future. While not inexpensive, I feel the cost is on target for the quality of the food, the view (especially if you can get a seat by a window or sit outside during nicer weather), and the excellent service.
Visited to take advantage of Restaurant week price fix menu. Table wasn't ready at reservation time. No big deal, had a drink in the bar which was nice. Service once seated was attentive and friendly. We each tried different appetizers and entrees from fixed menu. We were not disappointed. Each dish was wonderful, nice size and beautifully presented. Thai Calamari was a big hit! Only complaint is that they ran out of Creme Brûlée, which I was really looking forward too. Took the substitute of tapioca pudding with coconut but it wasn't for me. Didn't matter as we were completely full from the delicious dinner. Highly recommend. We will be back.
Located by the water with a View. Great view. The restaurant interior is inviting light and airy. Delicious crafted cocktails. Service was excellent. Steak sandwich was tasty and cooked to perfection. The crab cakes are crabby with mango salsa very good. Highly recommend. We will be back again for brunch.
My parents have been to the View and chose this venue to celebrate my birthday. From start to finish everything was great...from the service to food, the View did not disappoint. We ordered a bottle of sparkling water and a bottle of wine. Both were brought over immediately accompanied with fresh warm bread. For appetizers we had the thai calamari, crab salad and the pappardelle special. Everything was outstanding. Main courses included the steak, black bass, salmon and scallops and every dish looked and tasted fresh and delicious.
Dessert was a grilled pineapple with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and our server brought it over with a candle and kept it as discreet as she could which I appreciated. :)
Definitely highly recommend the view for a date night, special occasion, or any event.
Katie was one of the best servers we’ve had. Open table reservation said it was a birthday. There was hair in our dinner. Katie corrected the problem ASAP. Courtney the manager on duty told Katie to put the desert on the house. Desert came, there was no candle. I approach Courtney in the office as they (her and the hostess) we’re drinking wine and on the cell phone. She explained she was sorry there was nothing in the computer stating that there was a birthday. I then showed her the reservation on my phone and the first line says my fiancé‘s birthday. She apologized and said dessert is on the house. Working in the restaurant business for 10+ years when there is hair in someone’s food at the MOD would check on the table to make sure that everything else is OK. Little did she know we were already getting comped dessert for the hair that was in the food. She said she would take care of it. Came back with champagne. What do I want champagne for? Then went back into her office. We had great service from Katie. Courtney did not handle the situation the way the MOD should have. Had dinner 11/14/17 check #9211.
We didn't really enjoy our meals. They tasted like the were mass produced as if for a catered affair such as a wedding. The salmon I ordered was so dry that I had a difficult time swallowing it and my husband's shrimp were not very fresh. The coffee was very weak and the desserts also tasted like they were from the frozen section at Costco. The best part of our meal were the appetizers the duck
tacos and the butternut squash
soup. There was also a musty odor to the restaurant that was noticeable as soon as we entered the doorway to the restaurant.
We were so happy that our favorite appetizer, PEI Mussels, was back on the menu with the recipe we love! The one with pancetta and shallots in anisette cream. That alone was worth the trip, but the entrees were also amazing. My Honey had the Short Rib of Beef braised in Chianti. It was so flavorful and tender! I had Pappardelle Bolognese which was delcious. The ragu was the real thing, which I don't think I've ever had before. Dessert was also excellent. My Valrhona Chocolate Marquise was rich and yummy. My partner loved his Wild Berry Cheesecake. Restaurant week prices made it all that much a better value.
My only complaint was that when we arrived about 15 minutes early, we were told the dining room was not open yet. They sent us to the bar where all the chairs are too high for me to get into after my recent back surgery. We sat in the entrance area, but when we came back there were many people already seated! I thought this was rude considering it was obvious I walked with a cane and should have been seated right away, or at least been called when the dining room opened. Still, we did not let it spoil our evening.
Although the food & service was excellent, disappointed because I made reservations for dinner during restaurant week but was told they stopped serving that menu at 7 pm & my reservation was for 8:30. That being the earliest opening. I didn't see that time limit on either your website or theirs. Very pricey on their regular menu & not all dinner choices on website were available.
AS A FORTY YEAR RESTAURANTEUR, I DON'T OFTEN SPEAK IN SUPEARLATIVES ABOUT MANY RESTAURANTS. I ACTUALLY DON'T FREQUENT MOST EATERIES A SECOND TIME. "THE VIEW" IS ONE OF THE BEST AND WILL GET MY BUSINESS TIME AND TIME AGAIN. THE WAITSTAFF IS FRIENDLY, QUITE COMPETENT AND THEY SMILE. AS A CHEF, I CAN SAY THAT THE FOOD IS EXCEPTIONAL, FROM APPETIZERS TO DESSERT. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE IS THE NOISE LEVEL. IT IS QUITE LOUD WHEN BUSY. I'LL LIVE WITH THAT BECAUSE EVERYTHING ELSE IS TRULY REWARDING.
Fantastic server, Blanca, other staff very professional. Beautiful, comfortable atmosphere.
Best of all, the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Wish I had taken a picture of the Butternut squash soup and garlic shrimp on risotto. Look forward to another visit!
We went for Restaurant Week, it was great. The Butternut Squash was especially delicious and the waitress assisted us with choosing the perfect wine to our taste and what we were eating. The View is drop dead gorgeous !! We went on a Thursday which was good , not too busy.
We have eaten at the View many times in the past and have always been pleased but this time it exceeded even our highest expectations. The service from our wait staff, Grace and Justin was impeccable and the general manager, Joe Scalise checked on us several times to see if we needed anything.
The food was outstanding. Our party of 5 ordered several different dishes and all were wonderful! I especially recommend the short ribs, they melt in your mouth.
