Also disappointed with the wine selection 2 choices for red... More

My husband and I visited while on vacation. The restaurant was beautiful. Service was great. I was a little disappointed with the flavor of the food especially for the price of the meals. Probably would not return.

Modern decor, friendly, knowledgeable server. Food was very good. It was steak night so my husband had a Blackened Rib eye. I had a traditional Cuban chicken, black beans, rice and plantains dish. We had Beef Minestrone soup and a mixed greens salad. Both were tasty. We shared a dessert of flour less chocolate cake with dulce de leche ice... More

Our first experience at the restaurant was very disappointing. Everything that could go wrong did. However, we decided to give it another chance and we were glad we did. Everything was top notch. We will be back again.

I am not sure what I am missing but our experience was quite different and we dine out often! It was early; only around 6:30 but there was only one other table in the dining room. Main dining area is a pretty... More

We had lunch at The Wave recently and were very happy diners. I chose the lobster roll which was delicious, fresh and perfectly blended with mayo and seasonings. The restaurant is very chic and beautiful with amazing views. All my companions were equally happy with their bisque and fresh fish selections.
