What a tremendous evening, what a nice surprise, what a great find! The place is beautiful in a cute and funky sort of way, tropical, open-air, comfortable, new, clean, with a view of the ocean sunset that is as good as anyone's. The menu is diverse and everything was great, even the food served at the table next to us! Those ribs! WOW! Well, I had the flat iron pork chop and it was perfectly cooked and juicy, with an apple chutney that was just the right thing for that cut of meat. My wife had the seafood and lobster romaine salad, which was light and hearty at the same time, and again, each item (lobster, scallops, shrimp) was perfect. Her lobster bisque was heaven. The table-side salad is a very nice touch and all of those ingredients were cold and fresh. All the food was obviously high grade. Portions are large. Best food, served casually. Drinks were great too, including the jalapeno margarita. Seriously! Just a hint of spicy heat.
A jazz duo, Angela and Phil Benoit, were playing and singing some of the most pleasant sounds anyone could ask for. Phil is a great jazz guitarist and Angela's voice is from god. They really were the icing on a very sweet cake. Ask Angela to sing Dance Me to the End of Love.
The patrons were a nice mix of locals and visitors. There were families, dates, friends, and everyone was in a great mood, and how could they not be, in a place like this, in a place like this!
The staff was dedicated and friendly. I could go on, but I could also review this place in one word. Perfect.
