A very nice harbor view and perfect when the weather is good. The food was great. I was here for a group function and all three courses were very enjoyable. A good dinner option if you're in the area.

Very good "white tablecloth" atmosphere, and relaxing views of Norwalk Harbor. Having seafood is a must, but alternatives are great too. Professional and knowledgeable staff. A great place!

Too many choices to comment on for five people -- all the food items were excellent, especially the seafood. The waterside table provided a spectacular show on on a night with driving rains and lots of lightning and thunder... best part... no charge for the entertainment! Waitstaff was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Very enjoyable evening in spite of the bad weather. The restaurant is well appointed with friendly staff, good food and a full bar. We sat near the window and were able to observe the water which we find so calming. The menu is very diverse and there is something for everyone from pasta dishes, steak and seafood. Prices are reasonable and the service was friendly, attentive but not overly hovering.

Came here for location. First time. Get here early if you want to sit on outside deck. Even with reservations outside is first come, first serve. Ordered a bottle of wine. After 15 minutes we were told that bottle sold out. We ordered glasses of wine. They were served cool, not chilled. The fried calamari had breading that was falling off and mostly tops and tentacles, very few rings. Ordered fish dishes. Our meal took over 20 minutes even tho when we ordered place was not yet crowded - it was warm when we received it. The dishes were tasty, but, very small portions. I ordered another glass of wine when my dinner was served. It was brought to me after I finished my dinner. Food tasty. Service lacking.
