The meal was very tasteful. The presentation was superb. I enjoyed the view of the water and the ambience. Unfortunately, the portion was extremely small. Consideration should be given to increasing portion size

Had brunch, and as usual the food was very good. My only complaint was that their were a lot of small children allowed to run around the restaurant, making it hard to navigate the buffet stations. Other than that, the food was excellent with a lot of choice and great desserts. Views over the water are always great!

If your looking for good old boring Chicken / Egglant Parm - your in the wrong place. The restaurant only has about 8 entrees on the menu, which to me tells me the chef cares about his food - not diner slop. The New England Clam Chowder was terrific - full of clams / great taste.

Making some of the tastiest food we have ever had. Prices of course are high, but you get what you pay for and this place... More
