Had an excellent meal, service, cocktails and views of the marina. Our server was wonderful - very attentive. We sat by the window with a great view and wonderful breeze. Watching the boats. Very peaceful menu had just what we wanted. Steaks cooked to perfection. A must on our return!

Had dinner here. Very nice restaurant overlooking the marina with nice views. Upscale restaurant. Food was very good. Service and atmosphere were good, sometimes slow, but still had a very nice meal. Would return and recommend.

Food was very good overall and service was attentive but everything was just a notch below great. Caesar salad, beef carpaccio and tuna apps were all good choices but none of them had a wow factor. Tuna entree was good but butter sauce way too heavy. Filets were perfectly prepared but a bit small for eight ounces. Very good choice... More

Food was wonderful for a Christmas Eve dinner! Prime rib and ribeye was to die for! Service is something to be desired due to no attention to guests and bringing out the wrong food. Amazing, delicious food tho!

4 of us went and had a great meal and service. 3 of us had Prime Rib which was cooked perfectly. The other person had grouper which they thoroughly enjoyed. Only complaint was the room was too warm. We asked them to open a window and/or turn on the ceiling fans but they would not do it because of cross... More

We enjoyed the views of the harbor, the service and the atmosphere at The Commodore. The food was traditional seafood with the local yellowtail snapper being the best dish we ordered.

This came as a recommendation to us. Nice location, service was excellent, food was average overall. App's - we both had salads to start and I had a soup also. Entree's - we had the lobster cakes and the Delmonico steak. Glass of wine and a bourbon. Would give it another try.

This is an expensive restaurant. No bones about it but oh is the food so incredibly worth it. This is the type of place where you celebrate the major things or even propose to a woman. It will run about $50.00 a person but the waitstaff is flawless and the setting is gorgeous. Dining at the Commodore was the very... More
