This place is fabulous! Came for dinner last minute - called for reservations en route - arrived early - still got seated. Maitre'd Jerry made certain that we could get a table by the window (romantic). My wife and I had superb meals. Jerry stopped by to check on us, and chatted for 10 minutes. We liked the food so much that we went back (and brought another couple) two days later. Great food, interesting and inventive preparations, top ingredients. And they stock Blanton's Bourbon (best in the world). The chef even came out to chat with us on our second visit. My only regret is that we had to leave Florida and couldn't go back for a third meal. If you ever want to know how a five-star restaurant is supposed to be run, just stop in and watch Jerry work.

We ate here tonight and totally enjoyed our food. The service was excellent. Just have a couple of suggestions to make it totally top notch. We are tea drinkers and honestly have never been to a nice restaurant that didn't offer herbal teas. Weird. It was also missing nice background music which you have in fine dining restaurants. Nice place at sunset!

We decided to try this restaurant when other dinner plans fell thru due to over an hour drive. We were seated promptly, our server, Gina, was more than outstanding. Her attention to the menu and suggestions were spot on. Chef Pablo's attention to detail is second to none. A fabulous meal with white sandy beaches. We will be back..

Our first night in town we ate outside of the Fresh catch. Derek was our server and did a fantastic job assisting us with our fish choices. He was a lot of fun to talk to and made the whole experience remarkable. The food preparation is important but the staff are what make things most memorable. We met Jerry and he asked how our dinner was, just a classy establishment with a great waiter. Chef knows how to make some stellar meals, you wont be disappointed!

We sat outside, the staff put the portable heater and we had a LOVELY time. The food was outstanding with a huge variety on the menu. Highly recommended and worth the higher price.
