My and girlfriend and I went for a drinks during happy hour. We got our first drink no problem, but just sat with empty glasses waiting to order another. The waitress never came back around so we left. It's a nice location, and maybe we were there on an off day, but we did not have a good experience.

The bread is really good and it's a soft baguette. It came with French fries and those were very good as... More

We ate here during a sudden-onset rainstorm so it was pretty cool watching the rain come across the mountain and through the Harbor while staying dry on their covered patio. I imagine the scene would be lovely on a sunny day. The pizzas were pretty tasty but everything else was pretty meh. Go for the view and beverages and don't... More

Yeah, I don't think I will be back any time soon, wasn't too impressed with the food at all, but one nice thing was our waitress was lovely! We got there... More

The location was convenient with a outside dining with a nice view. Service was good, Beef nachos were a big hit, but the burger was a bit disappointing, not seasoned well.

Very nice restaurant to have a great meal, shop in fine stores and view some of the largest private yachts. We have dined there a few times and always enjoy. Good for family or a special romantic evening.

Drinks were a little expensive and not very strong. We were there while the after work happy hour crowd was dominating the bar. Felt a little ignored, hard to get good service. I understand - it's busy and the bartender is going to gravitate more towards the regulars. But, as a tourist, in a touristy area, it isn't a bar... More
