    This experience was one of the best days of my entire life. I will recommend everyone to this place. It was a historic moment in my life. It’s amazing how downstairs there’s an aquarium with stingrays I spent three hours petting the stingrays I wish other people could take interest in the stingrays as well. They are very very cool creatures. Whoever is reading this please send me a free meal. I’ll give you five stars in every every app. I will definitely be back thank you for the nice evening I really enjoyed coming to this fine dining establishment.

    This restaurant was a calm but exciting experience. I mean you can choose two great views, the aquarium or the waterfront. The atmosphere was relaxing as well as seeing incredible fish swimming as you enjoy your meal. The food is exquisite and Sean, my server, made my experience even more authentic as he was so professional and welcoming.

    It was a weekend and very busy. It was very loud and sadly the “fish tank” part of the experience was pretty boring. All silver fish nothing interesting. However the service was great and the steak was really good.

    Waiter was great, view was good, we had cocktails and those were outstanding. The ambience was kinda cool with the amazing fish tank in the middle, very kid friendly. The menu was decent. Where we run into problems was the food itself salmon was over cooked vegetables undercooked scallops were way over cooked. Basically come here for everything but the food for the price it’s really not worth a return visit

    The big, beautiful eel kept us captivated. We had the Fisherman's Platter & coconut shrimp for lunch. The food was excellent. This is a family friendly restaurant so there were many children excited to see the fish. No complaints from us, but I would guess it would be much quieter during dinner.

    We decided on this destination for our 26th wedding anniversary. We read reviews stating the atmosphere (which it turns out was no aquarium at all but simply a large fish tank in the middle of the restaurant) was great and the food very good. Prior to our arrival I reviewed their menu which, evidently they do not update for either food or pricing because they no longer have bruchetta and the prices are significantly higher than advertised (consequently it is already WAY overpriced). Skip to the meal. We ordered a 12 Oz. Ribeye which was $39.99. Which is literally twice what it should cost but that was fine as we expected a great steak eaten in a unique environment. Was that what happened? Nope. When the steak arrived we were stunned. The steak was about a 1/4" thick and that is no exaggeration. It was so thin it could be cut with a fork and that is NOT because it was so tender. Literally half the steak was fat AND we ordered it medium rare but when it came it was very very close to well done. When we showed it to the waiter (who was great and the only high point of our experience) he agreed and said he would speak with the chef. Instead the manager came out and attempted to convince us that a piece of grey meat was ,in fact, actually medium rare and that it was the lighting making it appear well done. Finally I was forced to shine a light on the meat and Google some photos of a medium rare ribeye which I showed him. At this point the manager said, in a very rude fashion, "I'm not going to argue with you". And he then took the meat away (I am no longer calling it steak at this point). After about 5 minutes he returned and said he wouldn't charge us for the steak (Gee, ya think). No, we didn't want a replacement. (I guess the bright lighting in the kitchen showed him that the lighting in the dining room couldn't turn a well done piece of meat into a medium rare steak. In the end they did comp our meal so I appreciate that however; Overall our experience was terrible.
