This place has to be the worlds greatest happy hour on Sunday. Drinks are half price all day long in a stunning beach front setting with excellent service and world class cuisine. My husband and I went with some friends and they loved it too. Will definitely go back to this great find. John and Felicia Callagy

Nice atmosphere but, it is a loud crowd and close seating, so avoid if you want your privacy! Overall, excellent, consistently great food and service!

We dined here on 12/26/2016 and had a great experience. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 2 children. Our waitress greeted us promptly and took our drink order. I decided to try the Pure Rosetini, one of the many interesting cocktails. It had vodka, rosemary infused simple syrup, a touch of juice and Prosecco and it was OUTSTANDING! We... More

I have stayed away for over a year due to management changes and the disappointing reviews. But then I ran into someone who said we must try it again. Now grant it I do not go at night, I go sunday afternoons in the winter when it is not busy at all. The food is still terrific, and I guess... More

We USED TO BE regular costumes at this restaurant. I don't think it will be the case after tonight..... About 3 months ago I had $70 dollars taken from my wallet! Yes! I forgot my purse there and, after 10 min, when I returned, this "hostess" ran when she saw me and I asked whoever came to see me ,... More

Terrible service with an unhappy waiter. Table was stuck in a corner and for the price of meals the food was mediocre.

Sat at the bar on a Thursday evening. Enza the barmaid was on top of her game. Mussels, pizza, shrimp etc all top notch. Needs restrooms on the first floor

We just ate here. The food was some of the best I have ever eaten. We had canneloni bean and escarole soup, chicken parmigiano and spinach with garlic. All were superb. Even the bread was top notch. Our waitress was so lovely and all staff were helpful and professional. We sat near a window and looked at the ocean. You... More

We had an unusually hot day in October, perfect for lunch outside with the ocean in the background. We had salmon, pasta with lobster and Caesar salad. Food was tasty and nicely presented. The service was ok, fairly quick for lunch but our waiter was not so friendly and seemed bothered. Cocktails were not so great.

Sat outside on a lovely day in October for lunch. I was a little concerned about some of the reviews I read here. Without reason! Great lunch and excellent service... could not have been better. We had soup, salad, pasta and eggplant... all were very tasty and our waiter could not have been nicer.

Thank LJW47
