We were given a table by the window out looking the ocean (although all tables have an ocean view) and loved the ambience greatly enhanced by the excellent guitarist, Looper. Service very professional and welcoming, good choice of wine and excellent food. Superb experience.

The food is excellent. The attention to detail is superb. The decor is very modern and inviting. The menu is varied and the presentation makes the food very appealing. Fresh veggies accompany each dish.

Large crowd. Very slow service. Had reservation but still waited. Food was excellent but because of slow service experience was not as enjoyable.
