This was our 3rd dinner at The Wave and again we had one of our best meals ever. I had the Tripletail fish dinner and my wife had the Scottish salmon, both with fresh vegetables and fingerling potatoes. For desert we both had the flowerless chocolate cake...as my wife said "to die for". Michelle, our waitress was great. The ambiance,... More

Hard to find a place to dine after 8pm in this sleepy town so this was a pleasant find. Ceviche was fresh, calamari was tender although perhaps a bit too much breading. Excellent salads. Service friendly and efficient.

We couldn't find the restaurant at first but after asking around we finally found it. I discovered that it was the owner was... More

We ate many meals here from breakfast through dinner, just about every one, and it was delicious. The service is wonderful, especially Amal, and everyone is friendly from when you are greeted to when you leave. I will say with one exception of one server who was brusque on a couple occasions. She was the exception. The food is wonderful-... More

The noise from the kitchen and other tables was so loud that I could not hear the conversation at my table. The restaurant was more than half empty, but they sat all of the tables in the same area. The noise from the kitchen vents and prep was very loud. The waitress was very very very slow and rarely appeared,... More

We arrived to the restaurant around 9:30 am for breakfast and were sat down by the hostess. It took nearly 15 minutes for the waitress to come to our table. We spent a lot of time waiting. When we finally got our food, my mom had a hair in her potatoes. I asked the waitress if the cooking staff wore... More

Christmas brunch atmosphere was nice but cramped as they tried to fit lots of people in. Wait staff struggled to get around my seat. $15 unlined champ was well worth it. Staff were attentive and helpful. Now the food. It was ok. I was there at 1:30 and lots of things were picked over and not replaced. by the time... More

The filet was cooked just perfectly. It was served with a bowl of Gloria's rich and flavorful Black Bean Soup and Truffle Mac 'n 3 cheeses which were both so good.

Had breakfast here. We should have shared plates. More than we could eat. Calm and quiet, great way to start the day. Easy, since we were hotel guests. Beautifully decorated, and you have a view of the ocean.

Thank C J
