“A Metamorphosis not to be missed!”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

The last time I ate in this spot upstairs it was an open air balcony burger joint with a spectacular view. They spent oodles of money enclosing it and making is a first class restaurant with glass windows, fish tank bar tops and elegance this seaside spot deserves.

The presentation of all the food I saw being served to everyone was wonderful, creative and presented with joy. Apps, chips and mushroom dip (a little heavy) , salad were nice. My husband had the Jackman's Ranch Double Cut Strip Loin that he said was spectacular. It was about 3 1/2 inches tall and like no other steak we have both ever seen. The little pot of corn side dish was lovely but had bourbon in it. The potato "chips" they called "crispy lyonnaise" were the only disappointment in the meal as they were soggy, limp, and such a greasy mess you couldn't pick them up, cut them and didn't even want to eat them. It was like a man in a fine tuxedo dragging his working garbage man along with him to a fine affair. Too drastic a description? I think not as if it gets back to the owners, perhaps they will change it. Even a lovely dressed out baked potato would have done more justice to this extraordinary piece of meat. When creativity fails we have to take responsibility!

My meal was amazing. I had the Snapper with mango ginger sauce and the accompanying creamy coconut risotto actually served in a coconut was the best risotto I ever had.

We shared a chocolate lava cake light as air and were able to dip little bites into a lovely well of whipped cream.

The service was almost where it should be. We were greeted wonderfully by all staff. Our waiter had a perceptible annoyed attitude that we were not running up a tab. Since we were not drinking any booze, he ignored any soda refills most of the dinner. If we had been drinkers you can bet he would have found our table more often.

All in all, I would say, don't miss this event but stay away from any potato dishes until they get the creativity to comply with the amazing experience.

“Not Worth the Money or Time”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Unfortunately I had high hopes for this restaurant being in my hometown and receiving numerous accolades in articles for having one of the best brunches in Delray Beach. Food was cold, took 45 mins to bring to the table (only 3 tables seated at the beginning of brunch when we arrived at 10am) and there was a bug in my daughter's soda. No visit to the table from management and the waiter acted like he did us a favor by not putting gratuity on our check as a party of 6. Followed up with the restaurant and had a personal conversation with management. No follow through or follow up.
