“AMAZINGLY romantic culinary delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

Seated next to the piano bar this exquisitely romantic restaurant embraces its guests in the most amazing culinary, visual and rhythmic delights tantalizing the mind, body and the spirit. The carpaccio was superb the escargot tender n flavor heightened. The veal/lobster entree was magnificent and the creme brulee and gelato finish creamy and indulgent with robust cappuccinos. Excellent bar variety and celebratory mood. A MUST enjoy when you're next in Ocean City.

“Excellent again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

You know when you try someplace and then come back awhile later and it's awful. This is not the case here, food was delicious and the piano player was an excellent treat. Generous amount of Carpaccio and the veal and lobster was wonderful. The bar was nicely stocked to make special drinks other than the standard ones. Try come in hungry and waddle away.

We have been visiting OC for a week for the last ten years. By far, this is the best dining experience we ever had. The service, food and decor were wonderful.

“Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Took our family of 8 and had a great meal. Great views and very good staff. Made reservations at least a week in advance. We always try to bring the whole family at once when in OC. Its like a family tradition.

Thanks

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

My husband and I went here for a quiet evening while on vacation. We were greeted warmly at the door, seated immediately, and had a table overlooking the Bay. Our waitress was friendly, professional and very efficient. We had a wonderful bottle of wine pre-ordered by our son. My husband is always looking for "good" Italian or seafood and this menu had both. Although not listed on the menu, my husband ordered spaghetti and I ordered lasagna. Delicious, both dishes. The warm rolls and garlic infused olive oil were a nice beginning to the meal this is my new favorite restaurant.
