Amazing fish

I recently dined here with friends for dinner. We had come thinking of having sushi. The atmosphere is charming, but parking was in short supply as Highway 1 was very busy on a Saturday night.

Locals have been recommending this place for years and we're glad we finally got to try it. We usually like to dine someplace where there is a water view when we are in the Keys and although there is outdoor seating on their lovely deck, there is no view. We started with a Smoked Wahoo appetizer, which was very unique,... More

The sushi was amazing! We ate inside and it was very clean and the staff was always making sure everything was to our liking. I will go back. Plan on around $50-$100.00 per person.

Met a couple friends for dinner and could not have been more thrilled with the food. It was outstanding! The stuffed avocado, grouper cheeks, fish 3 ways was all very very good. Will return!

That's it for compliments! The service was poor and surly. The advice we received was not acceptable and we had to order extras as the portion size was small. We shared ice cream for desert and the server gave us forks to eat with! Very pretentious and stupidly expensive and best advice is to go to Chef Michael and give... More

The sushi was the most innovative I have ever tasted! Very good! The steak is vacuum packed in duck fat, then cooked very slowly and finished on the grill, perfection...medium rare..YUMMY! The food was sooo good we went 2 days in a row!

Had dinner here with friends last week. Our drinks and food came in a timely fashion, and our waitress was friendly and efficient! The restaurant was very crowded, but staff was adequate for good service We shared several items! All of our selections were delicious, with beautiful presentation! We will be back!

The shock of the menu was enough at the beginning, but I really wanted sushi! The food was good,but way overpriced. I can get better food for the same price in Winnipeg. They need to lower their prices or get better food.
