The restaurant is elegantly appointed and offers romantic ambiance and were seated at a window table. The view was spectacular at dusk/dark where diners could enjoy the lights of the city. The staff was excellent and... More

The food is some of the best on the Island. You have to try the Shrimp Dijon. I also usually get lamb chops... More

We had read the dress code and were both dressed accordingly. We started with escargot which was wonderful---the perfect place to introduce her to escargot---she loved it. Next we had cups of soup. She enjoyed her shrimp gumbo that looked a little heavy on the okra chunks for me. I had Shearn's signature lobster bisque which was divine. She had... More

Refused to serve us because my 58 year old mother wasn't dressed to their standards for her birthday. Would not recommend unless you are of the 1%

It is tangy with lemon juice & crisp. You will love it. Our friend always orders shrimp dejong. I tasted it; it was delicious, but I... More

The service was very nice like the rest of the hotel and the prices were very good. I enjoyed the food but our main dish was not a fresh off the grill as I was hoping, it was also salty of the quality of a chain restaurant, I has the Shrimp Dejonge because it was special and different. The lobster... More
