David J was fantastic. My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time here and it is almost entirely thanks to him! His recommendations were exactly what we wanted. He loved the brownie dessert and we did as well, make sure you get David J when...you come here.More

Natalia was our server Saturday night and she was polite, attentive, very personable, and very easy to understand even though she was talking with her mask on. Even though she was very busy, she took time answer all our questions and was very timely coming...to take drink and desert orders. She easily was the best waitress we’ve ever had at any restaurant we’ve gone to. We will be asking for her when we go back in the future.More

Richard was a great server. We sat outside downstairs and it was a great atmosphere. Mussels were awesome. So was the ribeye. My salad with grilled fish was very light, fresh and tasty

We had great service from Richard. We enjoyed the delicious grouper and lobster tails. The wait for the table was shorter than anticipated. Enjoyed a drink while we waited. The weather was great to enjoy eating outdoors.

We had to wait about 45 minutes for a table of 3, but it was definitely worth the wait. Captain Tony was our waiter for the night. Excellent service and great personality. He took very good care of us and was very attentive. All of...our food was very fresh and tasted delicious. We will definitely be back again. :)More
