Very nice ambience and top service, a great place for a special dinner. Lobster three way and Coconut Cake can't be beat. Pricey, but the right place if you are looking for a special meal.

My knee-jerk thought is a dress, but you could call them to ask. I called to ask about men's suggested attire before I went. My girlfriend wore a nice dress.
