Excellent

Came for a quick lunch, it wasn't that quick but the wait was oh so worth it. Service was excellent, once of the best I ever had. The special was amazing but my favorite part was the Italian flan with vanilla beans, almonds and pistachio. To die for. I am definitely coming back soon. Their dinner... read more

We went to the Boardwalk Bistro for lunch. We had been there numerous times before over the course of 5 years during lunch and they have always had good food and a wide menu selection. When we arrived we were given a new menu only had 10-12 dishes with none of them being any of the usual dishes from the... More

We’ve eaten here a few times and have to say that the dinner menu was the most memorable. We went on a Thursday night and couldn’t decide what to order but went with the staff recommendation of appetizers: Brussel sprouts with apricots and mustard seeds in a honey glaze, fingerling potatoes topped with aioli and a friend egg, and tender...

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and have never had an unpleasant experience. The manager, Tracey, makes sure that everyone feels welcome and the wait staff is very attentive.

We had a Valentine's Day dinner reservation in the first seating of the evening. I get that it was a special holiday event and the idea was to maximize seating, but the tables were crammed in and we felt cramped and a bit claustrophobic. Also...and this is a picky thing, but the vinyl upholstered chairs we were seated in were... More

Nice place to eat for lunch. Good variety of food including sandwiches, soups and salads. Different specials each day, and I have never had anything that wasn't easy. Reasonably priced. Worth giving a try.

Very nice evening with a two piece combo of piano and bass playing smooth jazz. The "almond snapper" was over a bed of garlic mashed potatoes and the "Ocean Trio" consisted of shrimp stuffed with crab and lobster. Both were excellent and highly recommended.

The atmosphere was good the food even better. Get the Lamb Tagine! it was excellent. well presented in a Tagine (a Berber covered oven dish) and even better tasting. Wine... More

Went for lunch with a few coworkers, and this place is excellent. Great food and atmosphere. It was somewhat busy as our waiter had a hard time keeping up, luckily he had backup and another waitress picked up the slack. Great teamwork. Overall great food ans experience will return.

Very nice, not chain, upscale restaurant. Mediterranean cuisine and a four piece jazz band.on Friday and Saturday nights. Two of us shared a spinach & artichoke appetizer dip which was still almost too much. An almond crusted snapper with shrimp with spicy flavoring was outstanding. The herb encrusted pork tenderloin with bordellaise sauce, asparagus and potatoes had an excellent flavor... More
