4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

We came in with two small children, staff were very accommodating. The restaurant seemed like it was about 2/3 full but later I discovered there was a very large section in the back that was closed, so it was probably more like 1/3 full. Outside looks gorgeous, but wasn't where we wanted to sit with two tired and hungry toddlers.... More

Beautiful place with outdoor patio facing the bay. Nice for summer sunset. Sushi is fresh. Service is always fast and courteous. Great drink options. Valet parking. Elegant casual atmosphere.

We sat outside and as the sun went down the staff lit all the heaters making it a perfect spot for dinner. The main venue is very big and has a bar area too but it was too cold inside with the A/C on full. Lovely menu (recommend the coconut shrimp) and a good wine list. Slightly higher priced than...

My wife and I had a super brunch at a reasonable price. We got a window table facing the small inlet and dock it's located on. Typical offerings -- with fresh raw oysters galore. One free glass of champagne each. I ate too much!

This was our 2nd visit and though the ambience is ok the first time the food and service was ok... this time not good at all. We sat outside at a wobbley table... the waitress was not really attentive to us. My wife ordered fish (gluten free) which was uninteresting... I ordered a tomahawk rib steak with fries... the potatoes... More

Friday night with family in Clearwater. We were suggested to go to this hotel by our front desk. The place is modern and has a wonderful patio facing the beach. Beach views from the dining room too. Our server, Linda, was very helpful at all times but service was extremely slow, the table wasn't cleaned, and unfortunately food was not... More

We came here for their Sunday Brunch on Sunday, January 1st, so this review only covers this meal offered once a week. This was probably one of the best brunches I've had in my life. We got here right at 10, which is when the brunch started. The valet (you can only use this if you drive) was very polite... More

I've been here before and have always enjoyed the people, food and ambiance. The early supper is a,good deal, and the house wine at $3.50 a glass is a real find. I had the lobster bisque, filet medallions with a side of shrimp scampi, wasabi potatoes, mixed veggies and chocolate and pb mousse for desert. I was disappointed in the... More

This is a wonderful restaurant on the water. Great ambience and food, but the real deal is their early supper. If you fine before 5:30 pm, they have a menu to die for that is only $15. It includes bread, crab bisque soup or salad, choice of many entrees, and chef selection dessert. Plus the excellent house wine is only... More
