This terrific dining and meeting place is always crowded which visibly attests to its popularity. Even with a reservation one is sometimes left with the sentiment of being fortunate they let you in.
The most selective food choice here and also the best kept secret is the delectable pompano which is caught in the nearby surf. When pompano is requested by a patron the waiter furtively moves away to confidentially inquire about its scarce availability.Typically, there is almost always only one left. On a recent return visit the pompano which is traditionally presented in a buttery sauce with a hazelnut topping, was again sensational. A chicken breast stuffed with cured prosciuto, provole and spinach and bathed in a delicate creamy mushroom sauce was well executed and tasty. A generous piece of swordfish was moist and delicious. However, lagostino on a bed of linguine was most disappointing. The lagostino were spongy and tastless. The dish further failed because the portion of pasta provided was woefully insufficent.
We picked outside seating to take advantage of the breezy warm evening. This was in part a mistake. Although the outside area is well appointed and supervised by a manager dedicated to the section, the wait staff on this occasion were not top drawer. The best it appeared were assigned the choice area in the heart of the establishment. Previous visits here were enjoyable and even memorable but not this particular reunion.
