I usually try a place 3 times before I punt on it. My dining experience was so bad that I won't return. The visit was for dinner on a Saturday night, with at least one large convention in town. Arrived without a reservation -- 35 minute wait. OK. But the main room of the restaurant was almost empty and about... More

Terrible experience. Soups were served cold to lukewarm, corn velute was porridge like. Goat gelato salad just inedible, person who ate it was sick all night. Surprised at the good reviews this place gets. Ugh.

Lunchi is delivered in a lovely surrounding, but dine inside and avoid the afternoon bugs, as they nipped at our bare legs. They can be anywhere - after all, you are outside! The oysters are delicious and the virgin raspberry lemonade is full of raspberries. Enjoy the harbor area and sample the dessert menu - sorry that we had to... More

Great food, great atmosphere, and great views. We had sushi and surf and turf tacos. It was beyond this world. The waitress was great and the time we waited when we asked for things was minimal. If I had to say anything bad it would be the flys. They bite pretty bad and got annoying. Nothing really the restaurant could... More

I had my lunch and dinner several times in a week, participating to a conference nearby. Not only the location is really beautiful (especially for dinner!), but I ate delicious fresh fish (try the catch of the day and the fish and chips) and really good sushi. A relaxing place, with friendly and efficient staff. I certainly suggest this place... More
