Friendly host, kind to sit us without reservation. Service beyond slow. Quality of food poor. Ask for tuna and substituted mashed potted for shoestring fries...which were frozen ones tasting like old oil. Over an hour between appetizer and main course. Service is friendly but they seem lost.

This was my second visit to Commodore. It has a great atmosphere, warm and not too formal. Great views of the marina, both day and night (lit up at night) - try and get a window table!

When we arrived we didn't realize the Commodore was the upstairs section and had a moment's pause, but once we figured it out, all was well.Nice atmosphere, excellent cocktails and food. Service very friendly but professional. Would definitely go again.

The restaurant was interesting. The service was very good. Not sure if the prices would good or bad but I have nothing to compare. Went there to try ceviche. One less thing on my bucket list. Would definitely recommend it just the atmosphere and location.

There are no words to discribe how WONDERFUL the Managemnt and Staff of this restaurant are. We were sponsoring a (small) dinner for a group of 40. Everything went as planned except we got the night wrong and showed up one day early. The manager (and Staff) looked out at the group and told us, "We'll take care of this."... More

We made our reservation weeks in advance and requested a window table at 6:15. Arrived early and were seated in a small back room which was then filled with noisy diners. Very disappointed. Food was good and service met our expectations.

We had a short wait before being seated. Our wait staff was prompt and courteous. The menu had much to choose from. The lobster tail was fantastic ! We will definitely be back for more !

Went fishing on the High Class Hooker and landed three nice size tuna. Captain Gene told us to head to the Commodore! The chef did a nice plate of tuna tataki and seared up some tuna steaks. Oh boy!

Beautiful and romantic place with a great view and amazing food and service. I had the ahí tuna and it was superb and the wasabi mash potatoes a delish. Will go back when in town. Definitely a repeat
