We went to this restaurant on vacation and the food was okay but our drinks literally smelled like a sewer. We asked for the manager and she said "We were making a big deal out of nothing" It seemed like the glasses smelled very bad. It was too bad it seemed like it ruined a nice meal. We will not go back there.

We dined in the dock level "Candy Store" rather than the "Bistro" on a slightly higher level. Nautical dining looking out on Bannister's Wharf on multi-color deck chairs. Nice bar area. Excellent local oysters and lobster roll, though we would have preferred the traditional New England roll rather than the brioche hot dog roll. Excellent and friendly service and good wine by the glass choices.

An overall disappointment for such a "premier" restaurant on the waterfront. Staff attitude is everything in the restaurant business. Don't expect a warm, welcoming greeting upon arrival. The food, though delicious, was delivered to the table on the cool side and had to be sent back----THAT says it all. The dining experience could be so much more "sans" the haughtiness and with the entrees warm enough upon the initial serving. They are now removed from our recommendation list.

I would try this place for dinner next time as the menus was pretty good. Great location, friendly staff. Good food. Nothing over the top but it was lunch after a boat tour of the harbor. Good kids menu. Not to pricey for the location.

Erin and I went here on the final night of our honeymoon. The food here was incredible, I ordered the ribeye it was cooked exactly how I asked for it. The dessert snowball in hell will make you come back. My wife has the salmon dish that she said was one of the best she ever had. The service was very good, our waitress was attentive but not overbearing. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice with a sailing theme. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone and cannot wait to go back
