Delicious top-notch chef delicacies. The lobster was so delicus and was beautifully plated. Crab legs were great. My husband had the filet and loved it and also loved the beef short ribs.

Good food and a beautiful setting to watch the sunset, but pricey. The short rib was amazing but the salads are tiny and way over priced.

I attended a five course wine dinner and was very impressed... the food and wine pairings were on point. Each course was excellent; from the foie gras chicken skin appetizer to the main course rack of lamb and the amazing baked Asian pear desert; each wine enhanced the flavor of the meal perfectly. I am very excited for another wine... More

One ok one great. None inexpensive. Close to the beach in each case. Lunch menu is limited but dinner is very nice, good wine list, broad variety of both fish and meat.

The restaurant is right on the beach. Service is excellent and friendly. The food was good--loved the desserts. But very pricey. And the lobster dish disappointing and misconceived--why drown it in sauce?

This place is beautiful but my dish was not good. I ask for vegetarian pasta I had seen online menu. It was average at best and way too pricey. The pasta had good veggies but warm milk and a big clump of cheese in the bottom of the bowl. I wish I'd gotten the salad. Waiter was great!

Thank luvtovaca111
