From start to finish this was a fabulous restaurant. The food was very nicely prepared. The decor is very nice. D the cookies and milk are to die for. Although very nice, it's very expressive.

They even had a birthday card at the table. Casual, yet upscale, with fine service and delicious food. The real winners here were the halibut ceviche and the delicious summer gazpacho! And we had the best mussels here of any on the island.

Outstanding meal from cocktails to dessert! Amazing lobster and mushroom toast appetizer, entrees were perfectly cooked. Homemade coffee ice cream with the brownie dessert was best I've ever had! Service was attentive and perfect

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal (even our picky daughter liked her meal). The steak and lobster tail was incredible ... perhaps best steak I've eaten so far. But you'll pay for it ... prices are above-average. But I'd do it all over again!

No dress code. But it is a nice restaurant so I would not go in shorts and t-shirt. But that is just me. I always like to dress up when I go out. It makes the evening seem more special.
