Delicious Lunch

I loved this place! It is right on the water and the service and food were superb. Ahh the warm bread they give you while your waiting is sooo good and warm that I could eat a whole basket of it. My friend and I came for lunch and we both ordered scallop dishes and the lobster bisque soup. The... read more

Best seafood meal we had on the island. Get the mussels and shrimp. The presentation is impressive. The view is on the water and you get a front row seat to sunset. Parking is tough but go early and there is a free lot at the north end of town.

We went for lunch and it was good, food portions are small, my steak was overcooked but the mushroom steak gravy made up for it. Husband has scallops and they didn't disappoint.

This restaurant has the most be beautiful views! Go a little early if you can, it was dark when we returned for dinner and all you could see was black. Although, the sounds of the ocean was a great backdrop to dinner! The service was great and the food was delicious! Get the creme brûlée, you won't be disappointed!

We came here on a trip recently and L'Escapade does a beautiful job with the food as well as the atmosphere in French style. The view was incredible and the service was great. The staff was VERY attentive and helped us order some things we have never tried before, and thankfully explained the Amuse Bouche to us. I was surprised... More

My wife and I had a very romantic dinner at L'Escapade. Food and service were great, we made a reservation, arrived a little early and they sat us down right away. The view is spectacular, great food overlooking the water right on the beach.....
