We went there celebrating my father birthday. The reason we chose this restaurant is just because the ambiance. The food is ok, over price for sure. The service was so so.

Have to give the filet mignon 5 stars and the duck 4.5 and service from Steven just perfect the lighting and view if waterway lends for total relaxation. Coffee nice and hot but could be stronger. Very happy we went. Valet is very courteous also

Crab bisque - always plenty of crab, rich n creamy. Steak cook perfectly. Lunch is almost half the price of the dinner menu. Beautiful waterfront dining, white linen table cloths decent cutlery - fine dining for a lot less. Dinner menu is a tad pricey....More

This place is ;arg enough to serve a company function, and small enough in sections for a smaller group to enjoy themselves. Great views on the water. Bring money, as it is a bit pricey. But I would put the food at 4 stars
