Our party of six was expecting great things, based on Internet reviews. Our servers were first-rate, but unfortunately the food was not. The caramelized shrimp dish was too heavy on the sesame oil, and the shrimps were not cooked all the way. The mahi-mahi was overcooked, the asparagus and salmon dish was lackluster, and the interesting potato pancake dish was flavorless and the pancake was burnt on the bottom. We would give this place three stars instead of four, but for the excellent service. When my wife said she couldn't eat the mahi-mahi, they brought her grouper and did not charge for either plate. The atmosphere is the place is classy, but we won't be back. Compared to the complex, flavorful, amazingly inventive , and utterly delicious food we had at Yemanja last night -- well, there is no comparison.

Delicious dinner at Screaming Eagle
The place was nearly empty but the food was delicious if a little pricy even for the island

The restaurant has a really cool and unique atmosphere including large curtained off beds to dine on as well as a covered outdoor patio. Our servers were very attentive and explained any questions about the menu that we had as well as going over the specials. The food was good, a little pricey compared to similar restaurants but everything was fresh and delicious. I would recommend going just to experience the uniqueness of the restaurant.

The restaurant provided friendly service and a very interesting dining experience. I can honestly say that I have never eaten dinner in bed (in public) before. As far as the food goes, it was very tasty. We both had the Argentinian beef for a change from the normal usda beef we get at home. It was very good. I got medium rare and my wife got medium well and both came out cooked to order. The price was surprisingly cheaper than we expected (under $100). I would recommend this place if you are looking for good food and different dining experience.

This is a fun place to eat for a change. Our server Mariella was friendly and helpful with making choices from the menu.
