Received good service from here but the food was just standard nothing special. Nice friendly staff who do a good job, expensive food.

We had dinner there one night. They sat us by the window so we watched the beautiful sunset while eating the fresh oyster, etc. Even a simple cheese sandwich for kid was made with great efforts and taste. Services are very good.

We had Oysters on the half shell And California rolls for our apps. For dinner we had the snapper and Grouper. The food is amazing and the service was incredible from our Host to our Server.

Caretta was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. It exceeded our expectations. Fabulous filet, (the best we've ever had)potato soufflé, and veggies. Impeccable service and atmosphere. Sunset was gorgeous. Can't wait to return. 5 stars in every respect!

business casual for lunch is good. I think for dinner, it you may want to wear a collared shirt.
