    Truly remarkable food. Unique and delicious, from starters through dessert. The wait staff is terrific as well, especially Alexis. We loved our vegetarian choices. We sat outside, with views of the ocean. It was so good we went two nights in a row and ordered different things each time. Next trip we will eat there again for sure.

    A really fun variety of delicious choices. We’re torn between ordering the same things we had last time or trying something new. That’s a great problem to have. Very attentive servers, the food arrives quickly and is plated artistically.

    A great old school traditional steak restaurant. We loved the bell peppers and dill pickles left on the table as a starter! Market seafood hamachi dish was good. Onion rings ok. Mocktails very good!

    Food at a resort should not be this good. I mean it SHOULD BE but rarely if ever is - until this place. 6 of us sat for brunch and we ordered 9 entrees to try and every single one was fantastic. Eggs Benedict were sublime. Grain bowl was amazing. Pancakes fluffy and chewy - tossed BLTA salad was divine. Smoothie: excellent. Cali-Cheese steak uses proper amoroso rolls from Philly! C’mon - absolutely ridiculously good food service and setting. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
