Made a Rez on open table which was confirmed and reminded ( for gramma's 92nd birthday). Showed up Friday night and they were closed; no note or sign--hope they are permanently out of business.

Prices were high with small portions. Food was presented nicely but music continuously came on and off by itself with no one there knowing how to fix it.

What more can you say beyond EXCELLENCE ! The service second to none. The presentation of the food was exceptional. The attention to detail of MY food was perfect. The flavor JUST WOW ! WONDERFUL in every way ever time.

Very nice restaurant close to the beaches of AMI. nice restaurant with very good food. With restaurant after restaurant lining Tamiani Trail, Manatee Ave and Cortez, it can be difficult to decide where to eat. This is a good one and the prices are reasonable.
We hadn't been to Derek's since it first opened and has really come along well. Decent wine list, good service, and great food.
