Trendy upscale restaurant without being stuffy. We ate inside but seated along the glass wall, great view of beach and people watching. We had the filet mignon and salmon, both were delicious and cooked perfectly. The mango sorbet was YUM!

This restaurant has one of the most exceptional beach views in town, and the food is fantastic too. A win-win for any date night!

I ate in the bar, which is the indoor part around the bar. Full menu offered. Service was attentive, and the view was adaquate, although for a reservation you could sit on the boardwalk.
