Quite good food in a unique location. The service was great and the food served in epic portions ! A little expensive for this category of dish but definitely a place worth visiting.

The view was amazing, the service was mediocre. I watched the other servers provide bread with the drinks. I finally asked after our salads, drinks before dinner for some bread. Hugo seemed put out but eventually brought it. The food was good but for a $200 meal, it was okay. My next visit will be for a cocktail to enjoy... More

This was a welcome atmosphere on a busy spring break week. The ingredients were quality and tasted fresh

Enjoyed an early evening dinner with friends and watched the sun set over Galveston Bay. Service was good and the seafood was well prepared

The perfect restaurant in Galveston. Great views. Food was spectacular. High end restaurant in a causal, comfortable setting. I can't wait to return.

They were not busy and the service still was bad. Out of bread, really! So they brought crackers that were stale, still in the plastic so how old do those have to be, couldn't eat them. And it is WAY TOO expensive for what you get. Won't be returning and it's 1 mile from my home.

The food at this place is really awesome. We sat on the patio with the view overlooking Lake Como. The bacon wrapped shrimp were super, steak was delish, and fried oysters were really good. Drinks were decent, beer was good. Staff was very friendly. Our friends talked about having a wedding reception to the staff so they took us on... More

You look out over Lake Como that leads in to Galveston Bay. The food is very good. They specialize, of course, in sea food.
