It was a lazy Sunday morning when we went at The Setai to enjoy their famous Brunch. I expected to find an elegant location, good food and excellent service but they simply cut the mustard in every thing! They call it "Jazz Brunch" cause there is a band playing from the beginning to the end. I believe it is a... More

The four of us had a delightful meal at the Restaurant. Must have a reservation, and drinks in the open air before dinner. The meals each of us had were fabulous. The drinks were great and the wine was also really great. Prices are a bit stiff, but well worth it

I cannot imagine a better experience. Well groomed service staff and beautiful surrounds start the meal off right. The first impression is magnificent. The servers were knowledgable about the dishes, were incredibly attentive without being clingy and the food was, well, amazing. Cannot wait to do it again!

Setai was always one of our classic favorites. When the restaurant changed about 2 yrs ago, we didn't go back to try it. Big mistake! Fantastic, nuanced Mediterranean cusine, excellent service as usual, and of course, the ambiance. The private room is fantastic for group celebrations. They will put together special menus for your group. Could not have been more... More
