Great food, excellent service and nice view overlooking the bay. Had the sole, striped bass, and stuffed chicken. Also had the puff pastry and a few other appetizers. Everything was outstanding, including the service. Really, really enjoyed the meal. They deserve every star.

Our waiter, Tony, was fantastic. He was so over the top "French" that it made our entire evening unforgettable. The food was delicious, the atmosphere low key and tasteful. There was no A/C on the night we ate there and even though we were seated...More
