We have eaten here on several occasions . The lobster étouffée
Is always perfectly cooked. It is moist , tender, pre-cracked, mildly
spiced, and memorable. The service is excellent. We recommend
eating in the garden which cooler and very romantic. All of the fish
Is fresh and well prepared.

“A Special night out”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Beautiful tent in the garden that you eat in and delicious high class food. Not cheap, definitely somewhere to go for a special night out.

“Nice Dinner But Nothing Spectacular”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We went here for our anniversary dinner and had a very nice meal in Edgartown. Had a very good sommelier who was able to perfectly match a bottle for our meal. The food was good but nothing that would make this a go to place. Nice to try once and had to make our reservation a couple of weeks in advance, especially for the busy 4th weekend.

“Best restaurant in Edgartown”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

This is a wonderful restaurant which is the reason that we return every summer. My husband and I had dinner here on Friday night and everything was great. Our server was pleasant, efficient, and attentive. And, the food was excellent. My husband had the duck special and said it may have been the best duck that he has ever eaten. And, that says a lot because he orders it often. I started with the duck foie gras and it was superb. For an entree, I had the lobster (after all it is Edgartown) and it was perfectly prepared. And, the ambience is lovely.

However, this is not a restaurant for young children. Take them to the Atlantic or Alchemy instead.

Had heard this was the best on the island but that simply isn't the case.
Very disappointed as food was mediocre at best and service was pretty terrible.
One bathroom for the entire restaurant is a bit crazy as well.
There are definitely better options on the island.
