Amazing fine dining experience!!!!! Everyone should try the restaurant at least once in their lives! Dinner is always impressive with some special tastings, and exceptional service. But, even as impressive is morning brunch -- nothing like their Lobster Hash and a fine cup of coffee...More

Came here for lunch and we were impressed with the service and food. Lobster Rolls, Angus Beef Burger, Cole Slaw, Fries...everything was delicious. They also have an extensive wine list and go above and beyond to keep you happy!

Enjoyed lunch with spectacular view. Food was good as was the service. Expensive but worth it. Dress casual but nice in the dining room.

Magnificent setting. Attentive service. Beautifully presented and prepared food. So it’s pricey. It’s worth it in a mediocre dining world.

Thanks for reaching out Laura, I'm terribly sorry to hear that we were well below our game for this dinner, and even more-so in the follow up. From your notes I can't seem to find exactly which date the reservation was to contact you directly,...More
