Sur is like a swanky big city steak and fish house in middle of the Caribbean action. Wonderful meal and attentive service. Trendy vibe with lots of attention to detail. Food well prepared and presented.

Sur has the best food and service I've ever had. The chicken, pasta, and salmon were the best ever and be sure to have a chocolate soufflé for desert! Organsmic.

Excellent upscale location to have a drink and an appetizer. Open air bar has great ambience and allows for good people watching. We sat at the bar and had good service.
