We didn't have the full high tide experience with the waves crashing against the windows, but watching the sun set over the ocean while the waves lapped the edge of the building was pretty darn cool. The restaurant has a definite old school supper club...More

From the start, valet parking ($10) was easy. Facility is nicely decorated/updated with great view. Service was fine. Food was very good: swordfish, salmon, chicken.

The view is amazing. Martini was good! The service was very marginal. The food was overly expensive and the presentation was fussy. The restaurant decor is seriously tired! We had a deconstructed goat cheese salad that looked like child's play on the plate. Just silly....More

Celebrated our daughter's college graduation here and was not disappointed. Yes, the food is pricey but it is worth it. Great view from every table with tiered seating. Food tasted great and the wine selection was vast and relatively good value. Service was very attentive....More

I had dinner here last week with about 40 other people for a pre-wedding dinner. We were given a private room overlook the ocean (about 20 feet from the window), and from the word go, the service was impeccable. I am sorry I do not...More

We were walking the shore in jeans and T-shirt and stumbled upon this great restaurant. We were lucky they had a table available. They made no problem of our simple clothing, but we did feel under dressed compared with the... More
