Great dinner. The duck and foie gras ravioli was amazing. Service was terrific also. We ate inside and enjoyed the air conditioning. Nice atmosphere.

The food was just fabulous, and we sat outside by the water on a lovely deck. However, we were sorely disappointed in the service. The staff was friendly enough, but the service was extremely slow. We were the third party seated on a Saturday night...More

We had reservations specifically requesting outside seating, but when we arrived , we were told there would be a 40 minute wait. We were a party of 3. They seated us inside despite having many tables available outside. Inside was unremarkable - resembled an airport...More
