“Mehhh...Just Ok.”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Husband and I visited at 8:00 p.m. last Saturday night. The bar was about ½ full and the restaurant had one other party in the dining room. Was surprised to see how empty this place was. There was a live band playing at the bar, and we probably would have sat in the bar area, but the band was SO loud you couldn’t hear yourself talk. Overall nice restaurant, but nothing so great that I would feel excited about coming back. Meals were just so-so for the price, drinks were overpriced ($15 for a martini). However, five stars for the waitstaff. I’m never good at remembering names, but our server was fantastic. She was attentive, informative, and had a great attitude.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Dirty stemware, dirty silverware, food was ok. Molten lava cake was a dry cupcake. Calamari was very good. Not worth the prices.

“Great food with beautiful views”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

The food here is excellent. Everything was done to perfection. Great selection of steaks and seafood. Terrific dessert.

Beautiful restaurant. Nice atmosphere. Great views of the marina.

The service was a little slow. They seemed to be a little short staffed. No complaints besides that.

“Steak house at the Esplande”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

We went on a night that was windy and raining. Lucky we made a reservation because they could not seat anyone outside. They sat us down right away. The waiter was attentive. Steaks were excellent. Too many restaurants offering mashed potatoes. Boring, but the steaks were perfect. Enjoyed the evening and everyone happy with the food.
