First, please consider your dining time and party size. There was an understandable wait due to covid safety measures and “dinner rush”. Once seated, we enjoyed every degree of the spectacular ocean view you get at just about every table. The staff was welcoming, friendly,...and attentive. Our food was delectable from the calamari appetizer with lime, cilantro, sour cream dipping sauce, to entrees of fish and chips and charred filet. We were quite happy with price, quality, and quantity. Tidal Raves has found a great price, quality, and ambiance balance...and we look forward to a return visit to try more things on their menu!More

Very friendly host and staff. Tables spaced according to COVID guidelines. All staff wore masks. Service was prompt but not rushed. Food was nicely presented. Fair portions for the price.

Delish food n great view! The seafood salad (w/ crab), the Scallop, and cheese cake were delish. Excellent sunset ocean view. All desserts are made in house here which is a sign of good restaurant :). Bread were served warm.

We have eaten at Tidal Raves for years and faithfully supported them through the ever changing COVID restrictions. The food and service has always been exceptional. Until tonight. It almost seemed like the place had experienced a change in management. The food was substandard for...a $100+ check, the service made us feel like an inconvenience and the management was unfriendly. Sadly, it will be quite awhile before we return, if ever. Good luck.More

The view is spectacular- as all tables look out to the ocean. We had lunch there and the service as fast, friendly and helpful in guiding us to what we wanted to order. We had flatbread w pesto, crab and mozzarella cheese melt which was...tasty and a large order for one. We also had the rockfish tacos w pico de gaio which were well prepared, fresh and served w rice and blackbeans. The wait staff was friendly and we were seated immediately even though there was a line for window seating- we could easily view the water from our table. It was quiet, tables were well spaced ( in respect for Covid) and our meal was well prepared. We would definitely go again- Recommended!More

It was a stormy Valentines Day and we sat next to the window watching the beauty of the ocean waves hitting the rocks while we were dining on some very delicious food.

I've had better Clam Chowder from a can and the crab Cakes looked and tasted like cardboard. Service was slow and the food was cold.

Small gem @ the beach. The food is great & fresh tasting. The view is beautiful. Great place to celebrate or to have a nice, more quiet dinner. Check out their grilled chicken gnocchi.
