This was an after thought visit. Not our first choice until our first dinner. The view is very relaxing. Now the food is not top note quality, but, a little Chef Ramsey help , this could be a top notch establishment. Willl try it again.

Perfectly cooked salmon with a mushroom sauce on the side. I asked if I could have just vegetables versus veg and pasta which normally come with the dish. No problem , very accommodating and the plate came with 3 Veg ! Beets , Brussels sprouts and caramelized red cabbage with goat cheese. This is one of the best meals I... More

Upstairs lends great views, more relaxed atmosphere with bar area and piano. Food is good but not great. Nice place to get together with friends and enjoy the view of the sailboats & water.

We were walking along the estuary near dusk we happened on a good smell of food in the air. An interesting building appeared on the waterfront and we saw that it was a restaurant. We decided to have dinner earlier than planned and went in. It was quickly obvious they knew what they were doing. We got a great table... More

Personally, I thought it was good. Some people think it's a bit shabby, but I enjoyed it overall. Mind you, I'm a picky eater, always have been. So I thought the warm bread, delectable olive oil, crunchy calamari, 99% perfect clamchowder, and yummy Bolognese, was, quite tasty! It's kid friendly too, which came to my benefit since I'm 10.

We enjoyed our meal with a view across the water to Scotts. Had the pizza for appetizer because hubby didn't care for any of the options. Salad and main course were wonderful - I had the Tequila lime pasta with onions, peppers and mushrooms. Hubby had Meat fettuccini which had sausage and ham but the menu said it would have... More

Went here with a Groupon for four on a Sunday night. The restaurant was pretty busy, but the tables were spaced apart enough so it did not feel crowded. Appetizers and bread were good, all of us liked our entrees. Desserts were very good, even after we were all a bit stuffed from dinner. Nice setting too, with a view... More

Was within walking distance from our hotel. No surprises here at all--classic surf and turf menu with pasta thrown in. Service and food was good, though wait for meal was excessive. Will go back, at least once to see if wait is shorter.

My sister and I went to this restaurant two weeks ago expecting a great dinner considering the rest of the reviews. Not so. We were escorted upstairs into the dingy second floor. I should have surmised what we were in for when we arrived at our table the the table was not only not set for dinner but the linen... More
