My husband and I have been eating at Wind & Sea for almost 5 years, it used to be a fantastic place to eat. Long on charm, short on seating, but the food was amazing, the bread; magnificant! Over the past two years the place has gone down hill...it's acting like a failing restaurant; out of this, out of that,... More

My family has been coming to the area for 27 years. We had heard great things about Wind-n-Sea but it did not live up to expectations. When we arrived it was not crowded. By the service you would have thought it was packed. The menu and specials were very uninspired. The pepper overwhelmed the flavor of my steak and my... More

I had the duck, and was very happy with how it tasted. The outside was crispy without being deep-fried, and the accompanying sauce went very well with the duck. The risotto alongside the duck was one of the best risotto dishes I've ever had in the states. I was very pleased with this meal and look forward to coming back!

We have been coming to Windansea for many years. The restaurant has never disappointed us before. We were just there with our daughter and her boy friend this evening. We used to be just wowed by the food and the service here, unfortunately not tonight. The server was very matter of fact, serviceable, but not special. We ordered the crab... More

Great cuisine, especially duck and veal. Varied menu because even the wood-fired pizza is also highly recommended. Good wine list and memorable desserts. Near waterfront, but don't go for the view...the food is the draw.

Had reservations for the holiday weekend. Had a great dinner. I ordered the fish and my husband ordered the steak. Everything was cooked great. It was very busy and the place was packed. We had a great time and we are looking forward to going back.

I have eaten at this establishment for a few years and was actually there on June 8th when this table came in. I witnessed the group of 12 who were next to us. They were loud, yelling out drinks and food orders and were not very patient. I actually felt bad for the waitress that was waiting on them. She... More

Nose turned when the four of us walked threw the door. Was seated at a table big enough for a couple, not two couples. Floor looked wet, dirty, and smelled like a pack of cigarettes smoking. Food looked nice, but was over cooked and could hear the chef yelling at the staff. Won't come back.
