Surprised this place is not ranked number one in Nantucket. Amazing atmosphere, attentive service, spectacular food. From the appetizers, perfectly prepared fish to desserts (get the rhubarb galette- incredible) - every aspect of the meal was amazing. Sommelier was outstanding.

Stand out food, waiters, ambiance, and setting. One of the best spots in Nantucket for a romantic meal on the patio.

Excellent dining - hard to get a dinner reservation (even 2 months in advance during peak season) and walk ins won't be successful getting a table. Views are good - not nearly as good as the food. Pricey.

Good friends, who have lived seasonally on Nantucket for many years, recommended this stand out restaurant and we're so glad they did! This is a fine restaurant with a casual, smart vibe that hit all the right notes for us. Yes, it's pricey, but all...More

Not really. Dressier than most restaurants on the island, as there were a few men in jackets, but not required. There were ladies in cute sundresses and men in golf shirts.../
