“Surprise in the Shelborne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013

This poolside bistro at the Shelborne, which replaced a pricey establishment that never seemed appealing, offers a terrific array of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options at the best prices you will find in any Sobe hotel. My ahi tuna 'burger' was wonderful and my wife's grilled chicken, while unexciting, was delicious. Service was first class and the whole experience was delightful. When this place gets discovered, the lines will be long and the prices will jump. So get there soon and be surprised like we were.

“Vesper re-invented!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2012

Located inside the newly remodeled historical art deco Shelborne Beach Resort, Vesper is a unique dinning experience. You can dine al-fresco in the pool side area, or inside the very unique dinning experience. Tapas style dinning at affordable prices and chic décor. The “18 and Collins cocktail is a must try and the lichi martini is very refreshing. Just a few steps from Lincoln road mall and vibrant nightlife Vesper is sure to be the way to start your evening with style.

Sat and waited over 15 minutes to flag down a waiter and learn that they had stopped service food. It was 12:15 pm, when most people eat!!

On behalf of our breakfast team, I would like to express our sincere apologies.
It saddens me to hear that our service team did not reach you in timely matter. Our goal is to provide outstanding service and to create memorable dining experiences for all of our guests. I can only hope that you were able to dine at our poolside restaurant, Lucy’s Cantina Royale. We anticipate your return and hope to change your perception.

“No pests at breakfast please”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012

Its a nice setting, but a roach appeared and ran on the table top at the adjacent table from me.

Pigeons flapped wings and blew down near my food

Sparrows have no fear of the guest; a nuisance
