Made reservations for 7 at 6PM, and there was no wait. The service was quick and efficient. The selections were varied and portion sizes were very adequate. Goat cheese bites to start are a must. The Pumpkin ravioli, salmon burger, salmon in crosta, and tuna...steak were several of our selections. All done well.More

Very disappointed in the service. All the wait staff were huddled together staring at their phones. Management needs to be managing. I guess since gratuity is included no one cares. For the prices for a dairy meal, one would only hope that the service was...pleasant and attentive. I kept needing to ask for water. With very few tables full at the hour we were there, the service should have been impeccable.More

Went in on a whim for a light dinner and was really impressed. Nice atmosphere with tables inside and outside. Service a little slow at times but staff very friendly. Lots of choice on the menu but my wife and I both settled for a...salad. Really fresh, generous portions and very enjoyable. You pay Kosher prices (i.e. it's not cheap) but was worth it. Would go back and have recommended to others since.More

My husband and I enjoyed a special Anniversary meal at Rustiko, Surfside, FL. We had a Spinach artichoke dip w corn chips for appetizer. The French onion soup was tasty, but not salty. The batter fried fish was light. crispy and fresh. My Kale &...butternut squash salad was delicious paired with the ravioli in a creamy tomato sauce. We went early afternoon so it was not yet crowded.More

French vibe, delicious food, good waitstaff. Food is fairly priced, although a tad more to the pricey side.

This was our second time here, and it was SCRUMPTIOUS! My wife started with the breaded eggplant parmisian which was nice, while I began with the mushroom soup which was very good. Then we both went for fish, she the Branzino and I the Sea...Bass Piccata. Both of us said it was the best we’ve had. The sea bass was accompanied with mini zucchini and I believe edamame a perfect combination. The fish was done to perfection, crisp on the out side and light fluffy through and through. A perfect meal!More

The portobello burger and kale salad were very good! My wife liked the Oreo cookie cheesecake - I didn't, but that's as much about me as it is about the cheesecake. The latte wasn't worth the price - even if the price had been 75%...less. We went for lunch, and it was VERY busy - and noisy! We were the only goyem in the place - that wasn't a problem, but the inability to carry on a conversation was. I'd only go back if we found a quiet time - but such might not exist.More
