“Could be great still needs work”
Reviewed 23 June 2011

Had an OK meal at 12Degrees recently. The biggest plusses are a nice airy space and good seating.

The downsides are a still learning waitstaff and some issues with the food. This has been the case on each of my three visits, so tjhey seem to be consistent problems.

The good plates we've had so far include the salmon tacos and the chicken plate. Both are properly prepared and tasty. The unfortunate dishes are the bacon wrapped cod which is really forgettable, the ribs which are unpleasantly spicy, The Rib-eye, the chicken wings and the tosatadas. None of these is "awful," they are just not very good.

Drinks are expensive and service is haphazard-especially as the place becomes more of a saloon around 9:00. We all pretty much felt it is "fine," but for the same amount of money you can eat far better on the island. The space is appealing and the bathrooms were both clean and had ample soap and towels.
