Slow service and not the friendliest or caring staff. Beautiful restaurant but there needs to be a better screening of the staff that come in contact with their guests.

The property is beautiful, we sat outside. We were the only ones out there and the service was still amazing! We ordered the Buffalo Mozzarella app, followed by Pollo Asado (chicken) w/ black beans rice and plantains fried to perfection. The Oven Baked grouper, at least an inch thick served over green lentils, scallions and chorizo. Topped with an artichoke... More

She didn’t even ask us for drink orders. My husband order the steak rare and it came out medium. The waitress never came by to see if we wanted... More

We went to the Wave to celebrate our anniversary. I have to say, the food was EXCELLENT...excellent. The problem was the noise level. We couldn't hear ourselves think, let alone talk to each other. There was a very boisterous couple sitting at a table next to us, which nearly drove us crazy...seriously. The guy had a loud loud giggle/laugh that... More
