The service was fantastic, the food was great, and the music was good. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed ourselves and the free dessert we received on the house. Definitely will visit again!

The location is beautiful, especially at sunset. The food was good, but not great! The service was less than spectacular with little attentiveness to our needs. I will return as any restaurant can have an off evening.

Service was not up to par with the price you are paying to eat there. Our food was brought out and should have come with Brussel sprouts and not until after we left, did we realize we never got them. Maybe because our waiter didn't return to our table to see if we needed anything until it was time to bring the check. We were never asked if we wanted another drink either.

Brutally slow service despite the half empty restaurant. $25 for a basic cocktail. Food was good, especially the paella, but that was about it.

Nice restaurant but it seemed very busy and our service seemed slower. Seafood appetizer and margaritas were good. The restroom was down a level and was majorly outdated.

A suggestion for the bread pudding, as it is large enough for 2, would be to serve it with 2 scoops of ice cream.

Nice time to go with a group of ladies for Sunday brunch. Thou I had to wait about 20min to be seated regardless having a reservation. Apparently there was a mistake, someone checked me in prior to my arrival & was told to sit outside was a 45 min wait. But luck turned & as I mentioned we got to be seated in 20 min & outside!
Service was on point she was sweet & courteous. Food have to say nothing to brag about. Scenery was everything, sun was out & boats where passing by. Yes I will say I’ll go again.

Horrible service. Waitress was terrible - brought 3/5 of our entrees and told 1 person what she ordered wasn’t available (why didn’t she tell us sooner?) and gave the other person a different meal bc they didn’t have what he had ordered. What the heck? She was rushing around so quickly (restaurant not remotely full), Non-apologetic and making excuses saying that nothing happening was her fault. The manager came over and when we expressed how disappointed we were he said “ok” and walked away. So bizarre!! Not going back. Too bad too bc my Lobster gnocchi were great.

We dined here for
Our 22nd wedding anniversary and the service was spectacular. My skirt steak, calamari, & margarita was great. My husband had the salmon and he said it was ok.

First off; the food was overly priced. I got only a waffle and they charged me $15. Folks they’re a ripoff.
Secondly; they automatically charge you 18% of your total order as their tip and still want you to tip after payment. It’s ridiculous
Thirdly; the ambiance is not worth it!
I’ll only commend on their bottomless mimosas which is just ok. Nothing special and i think that pricey too.

Will never go back. Service and meal was disappointing and while the restaurant was almost empty, it took a long time even to be seated (despite of the reservation). Noise level was horrible with loud guests and strange people. I had to cut my meal short as it was impossible to have a conversation and have dinner calmly.

The food was good but the service not so much. We arrived and were seated and the wait began. There were servers buzzing all around but no one approached us. The host, who acted embarrassed that no one was waiting on us took our drink order. And we waited. He brought ten over and still no server. The host cane back over and took our orders. I saw him speak to a waitress as he pointed to us and based on her body language she was cranky and didn’t want to serve us. We finally were assigned a server after our food arrived.

Noise level was horrendous.
Observation— the more they drink the louder they get!!
Was disturbing enough to make a note to not return there.
Disappointed because the location was perfect!

There was a fire alarm during an early dinner on New Years Eve due to smoke in the kitchen. It went on for ten minutes and there was no apology or acknowledgement by management.

Staff was the highpoint of the evening. The service was well coordinated and very good. Food was 4+ out of 5. Very loud (speaker behind our table was too loud) - we complained, but to no avail. We enjoyed the mussels, the salmon and the grouper... all were good.

Next time, we’ll try the calamari and the cioppino. Those dishes looked wonderful.

Food was good, not great- had brunch with toast and when I asked for jelly for my toast, I was told they don’t offer jelly. Hmmm- toast for breakfast but they don’t carry jelly. Had to ask a manager for butter and syrup for the pancakes since the pancakes came out with nothing. Lovely setting- we sat outside. All in all, nice setting, pleasant service

Public restrooms are under [poor] management of the building instead of restaurant, per hostess. Neither had soap when first used. Women’s was corrected but not men’s. Both were in generally poor sanitary condition when used. Maybe wait staff has separate facilities. Sure hope so.

Everyone was very friendly, courteous and professional. No issues whatever on these matters.

The food for brunch was great and sitting on the water was very nice. We had a great time, except for our server. We only saw her 3 times and two of those times was to take our drink and food order. We had to ask another waitress for something and then another one for the check. Hopefully next time we have a better waitress.

Our server was great!!. Drinks from the bar great. Appetizer were just ok. Shrimp tandoori taste good not worth 16$ for 5 medium to small shrimp. Clams is broth was good. Our dinner was just ok. My paella was very good needed more calamari and perhaps some sausage. I had a big piece of snapper with no flavor in center of dish. My wife’s dish also the snapper wasn’t good soaked in juice with potatoes a had no flavor and didn’t taste fresh. It’s a shame this place has huge potential. The food is just ok. Need to pay more attention to menu and flavors and we will come back. Wish it was better. Sorry for write up we want you guys to do better
