The location was on the water and lovely. The sky was clear and there was a full moon making the setting just wonderful.

The menu was limited to four entrees with few other options, which were not what one would expect for a waterfront salt water harbor area. The waiter, although plesant, was unfocused and all over the place, even though there only about three or four table occupied. The entree we chose, filet tenderloin on skewers was cooked properly and tasty, but was also limited in amount with no sides. It was also pricey and in keeping with a French restaurant, which we should have focused on. Although it had good reviews online and locally it was not worth the cost.

Behind another great place for lunch and the best key lime pie in MD is a B&B with a little restaurant tucked inside. The menu changes every week with what ever the chef has a feel for. The food is top notch, Excellent. The portions are advertised as small, but that is up to the beholder. We thought the portions were plentiful in both starter and main course. The desserts are unusual and very good without being too much. Was introduced to Green Tea Ginger Ale, loved it and now that I know you can get it through Canada Dry I bought a case.

The atmosphere is pleasent, But.....the chairs are wicker seats with thin cushions, "uncomfortable". The floors are wood and it causes the acoustics to be a bit poor. If there is a large group eating in this restaurant your conversation will get drowned out by them. They need carpet or something to drown out the noise factor. The view is nice, can see the water from the back porch. Wait staff is friendly and efficient.

Price is a bit steep. We had one starter, two main courses, two small desserts, two ginger ales, one cup coffee. Total was $84.00 before tip. This is a great place for special occasion meals, can't afford it otherwise very offen. A reservation is a must, only open Thursday, Friday, & Saturday.

Our dining experience was horrible because of the noise! Believe it or not the noise was created by the owner of the restaurant and her group dining at the table next to us. This kind of behavior is expected at Chucky Cheese, not at a fine dining establishment! It was both rude and inconsiderate of all other guests in the restaurant. It was virtually impossible to carry on a conversation at your table. Obviously the owner does not care about return business.

We had heard that Bistro had opened. Look closely for their sign and be sure to make a rez.

We had a most enjoyable evening with delicious cocktails and excellent food. The menu shows creative use of local products and the service was good. I thought some of the items on the menu a bit heavy (read "winter food") for August in MD but overall it was an excellent menu and certainly only one or two other places in Solomons are doing anything near approaching this quality of menu planning, local foods, and preparation.
