We had our last night at this restaurant and really wished we had come here earlier. We enjoyed our meal and the ambience here much more than the very much more expensive Beach Bistro. There was plenty of room between tables, great service and lovely food . A perfect last evening.

We enjoyed the view, the weather allowed us to eat outside on the balcony at sunset, the service was paced well and oh, yes, they serve pretty darn good food as well. Please try seafood but there are a few meat items if you must. The grassy island grouper is only the freshest fish in town!

Have been here several times, both in and off season. Very uniform experience every time. The restaurant sits a couple of floors up from a busy ground floor open air bar. It is housed in an older building which is quirky and fun. You literally walk by the kitchen to be seated. The dining room is very attractively laid out,... More

First time by a recommendation of a friend. Food was delicious and service was outstanding. We sat on the balcony overlooking the Gulf Drive and the Gulf of Mexico. Reservations recommended. We didn't have one, but since it was just my mom and me and we wanted to sit outside, the took us. The balcony is tiny. Inside is lovely... More

This bistro is on the third floor with a beautiful view of the Gulf. We had dinner on the balcony and watched the sunset. They have great happy hour deals from 3 - 5, go see

This is one of our favourite restaurants on AMI. We always reserve a third floor table and when the weather is good we eat on the terrace to admire the sunset. On this occasion the weather did not favour us and we took a table inside. The atmosphere is one of quiet sophistication, subdued, elegant and composed. The clientele is... More

We were able to dine on the balcony and enjoy a beautiful view and the "flavor" of the area while dining on wonderful food! 3 of us enjoyed martinis and appetizers before ordering entrees. The sun was setting and the atmosphere was festive. The food was very fresh and tasty! The bean cakes and grouper were excellent! Will return to... More

We visited during spring break/Easter week, so pretty much every restaurant was crowded during the week. With that said, we were able to walk in and get seated within minutes, at 6:00PM. The menu is typical American affair, with a Florida flair. Our family of four stayed with burgers, tacos, fish & chips, etc...and the bill still almost came to... More

Had dinner on balcony overlooking gulf. Great view. The cold seafood appetizer was fresh, ample, and very reasonably priced. Lobster claws (shelled), oysters, and mussels were great. Cognac dressing was outstanding. Only thing missing was clams, but the overall presentatation made up for it. Craig was friendly and just attentive enough. Lobster Bisque and dinner was top notch.

We almost left just after arriving because we were completed ignored by at least three staff members upon arrival and that our reservation for an outside table with a beach view was not immediately respected. However, our very skilled server Tom enticed us to say with his friendly welcome and his promise to move us outside at the first opportunity.... More
