From the moment you walk through the door, you feel welcome and all of the staff make certain that you know they are happy to have you dine with them. The food was outstanding, nothing ordinary, but quite extraordinary. We sat at the bar and had great conversation with the bartender who also chose a wonderful Cab for me. Warm... More

David, Anette, and Bob were so welcoming and friendly as usual. Consistently exceptional and competent.

We have been to this restaurant twice (and have future reservations) and would recommend it to anyone looking for an upscale dinner at the beach (ON the beach). The restaurant is very small and the tables are very close together, so you may want to consider a table in the front bar (and try the "bar menu"). The food is... More

What a fabulous place! It is a bit pricey but worth it for the excellent food, impeccable service and fabulous views and ambiance! All four dinners were perfect. Our servers were so knowledgeable and attentive. We ended the evening at the bar and left feeling like friends. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a very special... More

There four of us for dinner. All of the seafood in each of the meals was over cooked. One meal was sent back and the second try was only marginally better. It was decided not to send back the other three meals only because it had already taken a rather long time to receive them and we were quite hungry... More

What can I say? Fabulous. From the drink at the bar before dinner to the a simply wonderful meal. I was staying with friends in Venice Florida and I wanted to thank them by taking them out. We were so impressed. My first time, their second. The Sea Bass and Lobster entree was out of this world, cooked to perfection.... More
