The live piano music creates a warm atmosphere. While waiting for our table, we saw lots of tempting offerings being delivered to the diners. There is a relish tray that was brought out with the bread. One of the four condiments is a pickled beet and horseradish relish that is divine. Our server was cordial. We ordered the onion rings...

Had a very nice dinner here. Friendly waiter and our fried shrimp, lightly dusted as promised, was delicious. Would keep this on the list of places to eat when in the area.

Visiting family and friends found 7 of us seated at a cozy corner table. Things started a little badly when a knife fell off the table and our waitress looked a little irritated as she went to replace it,. Jessica was also bothered because the table had been set for 5 while their were 7 of us. After several trips... More

Long standing upscale restaurant that is always crowded, even on weekdays. Not sure the décor has changed in years but the food is very good. This time, our table was directly in front of the kitchen doors that were constantly swinging open to a extremely bright kitchen and rather unsightly view from our table. Ugh. Fortunately, the piano playing this... More

We went there twice for drinks only, the food sure looked good but we didn't eat. We sat at the bar and met new people and everyone was very cool. Nice relaxing place to take a break from beach life.

My husband and I had dinner here two days ago and it was excellent. The service was top notch. The food was great and the atmosphere was kind of like the old timey lounge vibe.

We tried the seafood platter, chicken and scallops. The chicken was the best value for what you got. It was okay... Worth what we paid. The seafood platter was good. The shrimp And scallops were delicious. The fish was fine, the crab cake was pretty good. The scallops were cooked well and what I expect from them. The relish tray... More

Amazing wine selection. Decent food selection, although no one got past the grouper. Everyone loved it. Surf and turf was only $5 more than the grouper and was just the right size. We'd all have gone back a second night in a row, but will try Carettas.

We walked in after 9:30pm concerned that we may have been too late for dinner but the staff and kitchen were very accommodating and although were we a bit rushed to order, the food, wine and service were first class. Looking forward to visiting here again for a a relaxed meal.

This is a nice place to eat while on business or special occasions. Not a good place to take kids specially for dinner. Most of the "sea" dishes had to much butter, sources, and other fatty ingredients. I ordered the shrimp Florentine and was plenty of pasta not enough shrimp, but it was very tasty.

Thank Eduardo N
