“stayed at hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

review includes drinks, 2 breakfasts and a dinner. generally adequate food. pluses were eggs Benedict, good caprese salad. most everything else including scallops (overcooked), chowder (lacked flavor), and mac/cheese (powdery) we not so great. and 0/4 on drinks--flavorless or mixing with odd combos.

one other side note--the manager came around to various tables to talk to folks about their meals -- but missed us every time. and I noted one couple at the restaurant at little ticked that they had not had any service yet and he was pouring/discussing wine with other (perhaps regulars or VIP's?) tables.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Oh my gosh the food is good. The service is impeccable. For dinner there was a guitarist, I believe, playing soft music. Casual atmosphere where some people have torn jeans and others do not, if you know what I mean. The fish, the meat, the wine. I cannot say enough positive things about this restaurant. The service everything. You won't regret it.

“Expensive and only a few menu choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The atmosphere is modern and upscale with a view of the ocean across an exterior boardwalk. We were able to get a window table but I was disappointed in the entree choices. We were there for breakfast and I wanted something simple after a holiday season of eating. There were no simple choices and everything was pricey.

I really enjoyed this place. The atmosphere is really nice with views of the ocean and good service. If you enjoy wine, the pours are very good!

“Very Friendly waitress”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We had couple appetizers and a cup of tea. The waitress kept apologizing because she was overwhelmed. She Deducted the tea from our bill because of the lacking of service she provided. I was very impressed with her honesty. In turn I gave her the cost of the 2 cups of tea + 15 % tip
