Had dinner here Friday night of the second weekend of Prelude. Restaurant was busy but didn’t feel that way. Food was great although the ribeye was a tad overdone. This test has become one of our Prelude traditions and we will continue to return.

Bandaloop takes online reservations (which I love) and it was so nice to have a table during the first Prelude weekend. The place is rustic, cozy, with nice lighting and an open kitchen. Cocktails are creative and delicious. The food is ridiculously fresh and colorful. We started with bread and an oil dipping sauce, which was excellent. I ordered the grilled chicken with peanut sauce and pesto sauce. It comes with a medley of fresh vegetable and crispy udon noodles. Fantastic flavors! My husband ordred the scallops with rice, pinapple cliantro salsa, and vegetables- also excellent! the meal was not cheap but it was worth the money. Great serice and the kitchen seemed on top of things. I will definitely be back!

This restaurant is near perfection. The service is like a well oiled machine. The food comes out promptly and the staff is very attentive.

The food is exquisite. Too many restaurants offer bland food loaded with salt or butter. The chef(s) here actually know how to use spices and ingredients to create dishes with sophisticated flavor profiles. The food is delicious.

The ambiance and decor are great as well.

One of th best restaurants we have ever been to. We just wish it wasn't an hour and a half away from home.

Looking for a local place for dinner, a little difficult to find as it is on an alley. Large dinning area, good food and nice waitstaff. The seafood was freshly caught and prepared perfectly.

Consistently one of best restaurants in the Port. The chef is the owner and it shows. They feature local produce and specials reflect what is in season. A varied menu--mussels are the best in area. Just go. Casual and friendly staff (Casey).
