We stumbled upon this place just by chance. The service was what you would expect of a 5 Star restaurant. Very quaint and a little on the small side-but their food was beyond excellent and presented well. The have a great wine selection and we are so glad we found it.

Incredible food, great wine list, most pleasant staff, don't miss it. It is a small place and when they get slammed things can slow down, so be understanding. Like most Port A places it is always fun to sit at the bar unless you want an intimate table. I see some unfavorable reviews and don't understand them unless the writers... More

Just logged onto Port A trip advisor and this restaurant brought back memories. Bad memories, unfortunately. Was there a year ago, Wife and I shared the Sea Bass plate. Everything was going according to plan, only thing that struck me odd was the owner/employee’s dogs that were allowed to come into the restaurant at closing time. Next 2 days of... More

This little place is very unassuming, but amazing. My husband and I came in on July 11th and had a wonderful dinner. We started off with a wine flight, tuna sashimi, and oysters rockafeller. By the time our main courses came I was stuffed! I got the 14 oz bone in filet and my husband got seabass. Both were out... More

A little hole in the wall at the Port A Yacht club. You don't have to be member to go. Its very casual environment with beach towels as table cloths and co-ordinating washcloths as napkins makes it fun. We love to go out here and swim, lounge around on the covered outside deck and order drinks and appetizers. They have... More

What a pleasant surprise to discover a fine dining experience in Port A! The 4 of us ate inside where reservations are a must (we used the online service "opentable.com" which worked very well). Inside dining is intimate with great views. While one might expect white linen tablecloths they are instead terry cloth beach towels (which received the only negative... More

My husband and I came in and sat at the bar. The male bartender didn't even acknowledge us and after 10 minutes of sitting there we finally asked for a menu. 15 minutes in he did not offer us drinks. We finally ordered 2 waters, had he offered anything we would have gotten alcohol. Extremely rude when taking order. After... More

Yuck! Spent dinner fanning my plate to keep the flies away. Unfortunately one ended up in my drink. The flies were so bad we had to ask for a plate to be covered while that party member left the table. Waitress was put out that we made such a request and never apologized or offered to anything.

We did not know about this restaurant until a waitress at the Venetian Hot Plate said she had a good friend who worked there and that it was very good. We found it and showed up the next nite without res. but got in quickly. Good atmosphere with harbor views. I had the Chilean Sea Bass that was the best... More
