    A great restaurant with a great view and really good food. Our waiter was a little forgetful having to be reminded about our wine order and my Sambucca that I wanted with my espresso. He was a really great guy, very sociable and trying to do a good job but seemed a little scattered. The "best" of the evening after enjoying a great meal with I got my double espresso served in a large coffee mug. I guess there is a first for everything. I couldn't believe that. They serve espresso - don't they have espresso cups?

    Went for my husband’s birthday - normally the food is very good and was this time as well but we went at 7pm and they had run out of bread, an hour later we still had not been served so our waiter who was very gracious and doing his best w the circumstances, offered us clam chowder in lieu of bread, which subsequently ruined our dinner. After waiting 1.5hrs and then devouring the rich soup, we had no appetite by the time our food arrived. It was delicious, but ruined the experience. I had also noted it was my husband’s bday when I made the open table reservation and the hostess mentioned it but we don’t think our waiter had any knowledge of that and we bailed on dessert to get home as it was 9pm at this point.

    The dinner was great! The seafood was prepared very well and not over cooked. The view was great, conversation was excellent. The service was slow and inattentive. Asked for the check, I placed cash in the folder with some sticking out, my date put her sweater on and 15 minutes later, I had to flag the waitress down to get the check to her. I was not going to leave an $80 tip for two.

    Per a recommendation from a friend we chose to celebrate my daughter's college graduation there and all I can say is WOW! The whole experience was so special - from the great ambiance/view of the ocean, attentive and amazing waitress and staff, to the absolutely fabulous food, it made this an extraordinary and very memorable day!!

    The Hostess was very accommodating and friendly - much appreciated! Our server was attentive. The food was delicious, especially the beef sliders and breakfast potatoes. Every food item meant be served hot was not even warm. We waited 20 minutes for the carving station and still the meats were room temperature. While waiting to be seated it was noted others waiting were served complimentary champagne; also, I overheard the server attending to an adjacent table comp champagne. But when I requested champagne at the end of the meal to go with dessert I was charged. The imposed 20% gratuity was not appreciated; for a buffet (i.e., self-serve meal) it is excessive. Based on only cold food available the cost of the buffet was out of line.

    Although I had 8pm reservations for a bday party of 6 for preferred window seating, the hostess wasn't able to accommodate us. She told me we could continue waiting or seat ourselves outside but the tables were too separated from each other so we ended up settling for a table inside almost an hour later after waiting. Needless to say, by this time we were restless and hungry. The back and forth wait was unappreciated.

    Because I've dined here before, I'm basing my latest review on prior experience. This time, I didn't get a chance to actually eat, since the friends joining me and my wife asked if we could eat elsewhere due to a level of noise that would have precluded conversation unless we all communicated by signing.
