Friends took us to lunch today for something different. Beautiful decor very upscale, trendy. Menu choices were fresh and presentation beautiful. Service very good. I had the soup of the day. I must say tasty but only contained two miniscule pieces of chicken. The wedge salad was pretty but the smallest I have seen and a bit pricey. The ahi... More

My husband and I shared the Calasparra Rice Dish for two and it was delicious and more the we could eat. The atmosphere is relaxing and the wait staff unbelievably pleasant, professional and accommodating.

As a single diner, I often don’t receive the same level of service as larger groups. But my experience at The Wave Kitchen and Bar was outstanding. I give this restaurant an A+++. I was a walk-in at 7pm on Saturday night with no reservations. Yet, I was greeted and seated right away. One of the managers, Walter Ruiz, welcomed... More

The view of the ocean and pool was beautiful! The rice and beans and Yucca frito was outstanding. My husband loved the Surf and Turf and he is very hard to please when it comes to steak. The Bombone Cubano for dessert was like one of the beat desserts ever. Loved this restaurant!

we've been here a few times, they are pricey, but it's vero. The rice pudding is so good, it's warm when you get it. I am gluten free so dessert is usually not an option for me, so this made me happy.

We were an adult party of 6 with a 7pm reservation on the Sunday following Christmas- Dec 28th, holiday week. It was immediately evident that our waitress, while pleasant and friendly, was untrained and entirely incapable. After managing to get a wine bottle open and getting one bar drink, she disappeared. After 25 minutes, I asked the hhostess to get... More
