“Enjoyable Special Occasion restaurant”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We enjoyed the view; service and food. The veal was the best I've ever had. The baked brie was fantastic! Well worth it for a special Naples experience on the bay

“Over rated and over priced”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I went to this place a few times when it was called Maxwell's and it was good. It has since been remodeled and renamed. It has the same owners, but it can't be the same chef or business philosophy. Our first complaint is the limited menu. Like most diners, we looked at the menu online before we went, and you can look at their menu too. It's listed above. Many of the entrees on their online menu were not on their printed menu, and we felt this was pure deception. Chicken under a Brick: Not on the menu. Short Ribs: not on the menu. They do have about 1000 wines though. The specials were not making up for the limited menu either. I got a filet mignon with what was supposed to be a cherry demi glace. It was nothing more than a salty cherry juice reduction. The vegetables were under cooked, and I know al Dente, but one of the vegetables were Brussels sprouts, and if you've ever eaten under cooked cabbage, you know what I'm talking about. These were over seasoned with basil. The steak was on a bed of some sort of potatoes that were tasteless. Overall my dinner was a train wreck of flavors with none of the components complimenting each other. The steak was very tender and a good cut of meat. It's just a shame the chef has no idea what to do with it. Another complaint was the atmosphere. It was noisy, and the service was hurried. It's a mill on a Saturday night, and we got the feeling all they wanted to do was seat somebody else for $175 for 45 minutes. They brag about their view but what good is it if they rush you out the door for another customer? And on the topic of view, it's not that great. Sure, it's on the water, but there's a condo out there that has to be one of the ugliest buildings I've ever seen. Not their fault, but if you're going there for the view, it's a real eyesore. There are better places for a romantic dinner on the water in Naples Venetian Village. Search them out and skip this place.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We went here with friends who had been before. All the starters were good - I had the seafood in filo pastry which was tasty. We all then has 1/2 size salads which were simple. The mains came and my husbands vegetables didn't come until he'd virtually finished his dinner. My friend had chicken and as she got near the bone some blood appeared. After complaining to the waitress a manager came out and gave a bizarre explanation that the chef said it was fine because it was a blood vessel. This sounded like absolute rubbish. We weren't charged for the late veg or chicken. I also got the impression that they wanted our table for other customers and we were rushed through the courses - not sure if this is linked to the uncooked chicken. The server was helpful - but all in all this restaurant is expensive and has a good reputation but didn't deserve it on this occasion.

“An excellent experience”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

This would be a good choice for a romantic dinner. But If you're on a tight budget, you can stop reading and skip this restaurant. The cocktails were excellent; this bartender is skillful. In fact the bar looked attractive and might be worth a visit on its own. The restaurant is on the water (on a bay) with extensive glass and a northern exposure, and some outdoor tables. You won't be fried by the sun. The decor is silver, white, glass, dark backgrounds. Charming. And not too noisy, either. Service was very good, friendly, helpful but not cloying or omnipresent. Dishes were served promptly. They really do cook here, not just reheat food service items, so order something unusual. Don't have an ordinary, boring salad or steak you can get anywhere. The snapper in sauce with leeks was delicious. And this may not interest you, but the frech fries are exceptional. Wasn't enthused about the wine list, which was expensive and not really interesting, but had several perfectly good wines by the glass. We will definitely visit again.
