A quick breakdown: Food 10 Service 8.5 Atmosphere 8.5 but would have been a 10 if we had a better table. I had made a reservation a month in advance and got a poor location. Kinda bummed but I'd definitely go back again!

We were fortunate to be visiting during a lobster night. The options, preparation and flavor were over the top. We enjoyed the wonderful view, service and all the courses. The setting is perfect. Our compliments go to the chef.

Amazing dinner, well curated. We negotiated our table, as we arrived early. Go early. Cause you'll want to spend as much time as possible favoring the sea and the cuisine.

Do not often go back to restaurants when travelling. This is an exception. Good service, views, and very tasty food. This time we both did soup (lobster bisque and mushroom) and seafood (lobster and Mediterrean Sea Bass.) Great flavors.

Terrible customer service. This is a rating on the customer service and not the food or atmosphere, but since customer service is just as important, I thought it worth reviewing. We booked a table for 4 weeks in advance to enjoy the High Tide Dinner....More
