Don't let the location fool you. Once inside the restaurant, you will never remember you are in a mall. Lovely interior with outside balcony, inside overlooking the busy street and another room with ac if wanted. Food was delicious with seafood and/or meats with specialty sauces to choose from. It is always fun to see Xavier and he is a supreme host!! We went twice on our recent visit and enjoyed it both times. Hubby really enjoyed the duck also. I had pasta once and it was also good! A fun new place to go!!

Unlikely location upstairs in Mall, but looks over road at side. Authentic old wood restaurant, attentive French staff. They make a mean cocktail too!
Recommend the shrimp cocktail starter!
Beautiful fish and wide choice of sauces.
Xavier is a gifted chef and sometimes comes out to chat to his diners.
Has an outdoor balcony seating area as well as an indoor room with fans (recommend this one) and AC room inside.

After our disaster at the Edge restaurant, we were cautiously hopeful that the # 10 tripadvisor venue would be much better. We weren't disappointed and you won't be either if you actually know your foods, service and wines.

We had made a reservation for 8:30PM Monday on the internet. They replied and confirmed promptly!

I would have added a 5-Star to the venue but it suffers only slightly from its location on the mall overlooking the noisy street and Burger King. Apart from the view, please consider all else a 5 out of 5.

We switched gears from seafood to turf tonight (Mon), Kelly opting for a wonderful filet and I wanted to try the local pork tenderloin, thinly sliced and the merlot and shallot sauce! Wow, what a difference when the chef isn't trying to juggle 3 restaurants and focuses on what really make a difference; great food at a reasonable price. ( $220 for 2 with bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape - Red at $74 incl.)

The bread was flavorful for a start but the show really got underway with the appetizers. I had one of the best mixed greens salad ever (not like that milky bowl of weeds at the Edge). Kelly really loved the Coquille St. Jacques with a spring salad appetizer. Thank you Chef Xavier for saving our 2 night here.

The entrees left nothing to want for. They were perfectly cooked, tender, well flavored and the presentation was excellent. Service was very attentive. They would check back within 2 minutes from the time a dish was served to see if everything was proper...good training.

Wish we hadn't wasted our 1st night at the Edge but we would come here again if our stay was longer. Try it, you'll like it! Tomorrow night...Cap Maison... stay tuned

Great restaurant on the 2nd Floor of the Baywalk Mall. Xavier does an excellent job and the meals are tasty. Xavier is there most nights and the restaurant has a wonderful nautical theme.
