I had already had dinner at Hippocampus at their old location. Indeed, the new place is very beautiful. However, neither the menu nor the staff have improved. Skip it.

The service was good, and that was all... The food was not a big deal, the prices are too much expensive for what they serve. I do not recommend!

This is a locally owned restaurant with excellent seafood and other dishes. The service was first class with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. They have a great wine selection and serve meat and pasta dishes as well.

Went with a group of 8 twice while there for 5 days. The food was great bought times. Only down side was our waiter. Didn't ask if we wanted drinks and when we asked about the food on the menu we got no real answer but the food was very good. No complaints from anybody on the 2 occasions.

Thank Michael L
