Arranging for a wedding rehearsal dinner for 25 at a restaurant you are not able to visit prior to the dinner can be an anxiety producing event. The event exceeded our expectations and all guest gushed over the outstanding meal. We began on the second floor deck with drinks and then moved inside to the dining area. The place was set up lovely and we had a four course meal. We started with the chowder which was one of the best chowders I have ever had. The salads were presented beautifully and our main meal choices included either grilled swordfish, filet mignon or vegetarian risotta. The steaks were cooked perfectly to each persons specification and one guest requested the seafood on top be removed, which was quickly done. I had swordfish at another venue and the Blue Canoe meal way surpassed my second meal.
The staff accommodated a challenge with grace and patience (unexpected child brought and needed to set an additional place setting). Staff would check in with me to see how things were going and if anything additional was needed. Courses were served without long wait times and the food was delicious. The last course with Berry Cobbler was wonderful.
I can't say enough about the food and service and highly recommend this as a dinner or large party site. The views of the water were gorgeous. Having a yacht with a helicopter in view kept the guys entertained as well.
My only negative was our two different GPS locators did not find the restaurant and we needed to drive around the main road to locate the site. Better Road signage with the address could help. Many building in the area do not have the street addresses on the buildings.
When I return to Martha's Vineyard I plan on returning for another meal here.
