The best waiters with personal service, drinks flowing,great atmosphere across the street from the marina with waterfront views. They always have a caught fresh fish selection cooked in different styles that are all excellent. Highly recommend to sit at bar and get a magic show with your meal. (Staten Island secret)

It's really embarrassing to have to complain about a dish as simple as chicken parm because it was rubber. And the fish in the fish taco was soggy - and had weird tarter-tasting sauce on it. The wine I ordered in the beginning of the meal came when I was done. And my water glass was empty for most of... More

We went to Cole's for dinner on the first Saturday in October as we were being treated by our Son-in-law. Before going we looked at their menu on line so as to be prepared for what was to come. Once there we realized the prices on line and on the menu were two different things as the on line menu... More

Not much to tell it was about 110 degrees outside and my wife and I stopped by to enjoy a meal. We walked inside, I went to use the restroom and found my wife seated at the bar with a drink. I was told we couldn't have a table indoors even though half the place was empty so they suggested... More

The food was good, although I have made better at home. The seating is very cramped. Tables are practically on top of each other. But, the noise level... OH THE NOISE LEVEL WAS UNBEARABLE. Another table had two children seated with their fingers in their ears. Horrible. There is no carpet and the walls and glass windows reflect every sound.... More

Delicious seafood cooked right and seasoned perfectly. They're price fix menu is the best... With an appetizer entree and dessert you will roll away, and you get a bottle of red or white that's included. Wait staff is very accommodating as well. Can be a little noisy but it's a great spot.

The food is always good and fresh here. Lisa is a great waitress. The weekday price fixed dinner specials come with wine! Who can beat that?? The menu offers Italian specialties, seafood, and continental. It has a seaside feel because it is near the ocean. They have fully recovered since Hurricane Sandy when we thought we lost them, due to... More
