Sophisticated preparation in a delightful atmosphere. There is outside dining with a lovely view of the water if you so desire. or a cozy interior. The scallops pictured were particularly good. Locally sourced products used.

The view and cozy atmosphere was the reason for the visit. Good wine selection and beautiful outside area to enjoy the amazing view.

$30 for a dozen raw oysters?? With stones and grit? Several stalks of asparagus for over $10. Waitress abrupt and inattentive. Scallops and steak good but overpriced for quality and quantity.

We had the chef's tasting menu and it was amazing. Six small, exquisite dishes, all of which were delicious and were impeccably presented. The servers were attentive and nice. This is a world class restaurant in an unpretentious setting.

I enjoyed the meal/overall dining experience, although the wait staff could have been a bit more cordial.
