This review is for the restaurant at the Harborside. Many may not realize that there are 2 restaurants of the same name. One associated with the Holiday Inn and the other is with the Harborside. Some of the reviews I've read clearly have the two confused. The owners at one should consider modifying the name, because I rely on TripAdvisor heavily when choosing a restaurant and almost didn't go in this place due to the reviews.
I came here on two occasions. The first was just for drinks where we met David G. An awesome guy who takes his trade very seriously. He put a spin on the white Russian and added some Bailey's and chocolate syrup. It was so very good. Then we asked him to create something that had some spicy...which he then crafted something I can't remember the name but it consisted of muddled jalepeno's in tequila with some mango juice. It was out of this world and can't wait to try it at home. David's personality and creativity to his craft made us want to return the next night...hoping he would be there again (but he wasn't).
The next night, we chose this place because of David. We sat at the bar and the service was excellent. We actually chose to split a pizza because we watched the chef prepare it right in front of us. It was de-lish! The price was reasonable and we thought the service was excellent. I realize that pizza and drinks don't necessarily paint a great picture, but the food we observed coming from the kitchen and the empty plates going back is a good indication of the quality and taste. When we get back here, we'll come again and try other things. I hope the owners read this and consider modifying the name to avoid the confusion because this is a great place.
David...a special thanks to you - you made our experience worthwhile.
