Wait time was too long. Hostess was clueless. Not enough servers. Two sushi chefs could not keep up with orders. Food was good. Next time we want fine dining we'll go to The Beach Bistro or Waterfront and be assured of a great meal and service.

Within one week, we had twice dinner at the Ocean Star. Compared to the strip-mall location, the restaurant has certainly gained from the new location with a nice view, but what about the rest? On the first of our two visits (Saturday evening), the restaurant was severely understaffed. We had to wait nearly 1.5 hrs (!!!) for the food. Drinks... More

The location interviews are superb. Food was mediocre at best. The sushi and sashimi were excellent, albeit expensive. None of us thought the fish was prepared very well and things seemed a little bland. But that does not keep this restaurant tour from being very proud of his offerings for the prices seemed high even for Ana Maria Island. Six... More

I am disappointed that I had to give it at least one star, zero would have been appropriate. I have no idea how their food is, after two hours we paid for our drinks and cold edemame and walked out. We had heard the service was slow but this beyond the pale. We are seasoned travelers and eat out often,... More

I've written only one restaurant review before but we had such a terrible experience I feel compelled to share this. We called to order take out for three people. They said we should be prepared to wait an hour. Okay fine. The woman that took the order was not knowledgable about the menu, nor did she mention anything about their... More

beautiful setting, really good food, but on at least one night (last night) it took 40 minutes for a waiter to come to our table. We ended up going to the bar to bring back a glass of wine and asked maitre'd to get us waiter. Took forever. One German couple gave up and walked out after same experience. Then... More

We are trying new restaurants on Anna Maria this year and this one does not disappoint! From the sushi and the appetizers to the main meals there was not a complaint to be had.

Excellent sushi - great selection of specialty rolls. Had dinner here and it was great. Nice setting at the marina. They need to change their address on trip advisor and their website. Somewhat difficult to find at Galati Marina if you are a visitor!
