Excellent food, attentive service. The chick pea fries were amazing! Scallops were excellent and the duck breast also very good. Wine list is extensive and pricey but worth it. Love this restaurant!

This is our second time having lunch here and I have to say, their appetizers and between the breads options are much better than some of the entrees. Mahi mahi tacos were outstanding! Ribs appetizer as well as Burrata salad absolutely delicious but the scallops entree was a bit disappointing. Any time you get scallops that have sand on them is just not OK. Drinks, service and ambiance are all solid and I would recommend this place but my advice is to enjoy appetizers and sandwiches.

A nice modern looking restaurant. Food was great and drinks were good. Chickpea fries were good but very filling. Lobster roll with fries tastes great but would have enjoyed a bit more lobster. Duck breast tasted delicious but I'm not sure if the blueberry polenta added anything. Will definitely go back again.

We were very pleased overall, as we usually are. Excellent food, ambiance and service.. This was our first indoor dining experience in the "new normal." All staff members wore masks, and the tables were over the 6 foot distance. We will be returning

Staff was wonderful! Servers, hostess everyone good. We felt when ordering a glass of Chardonnay we should have been made aware that it was $19 per glass. I’m all for good wine but also feel restaurants should discuss the cost or at least show a menu to the customer so they are aware. For a couple with a teen ager , it was a bit over priced

After hiking last Sunday we were lucky to come across this lovely restaurant on Open Table.. Food & service excellent.. Probably our last trip to a restaurant for a while under the current circumstances.. Our son very impressed with the warm chocolate chip cookie and vanilla milkshake which came with his meal.. Hopefully we get a chance to return..

Excellent meal, very good service and a great atmosphere. The chickpea fries are awesome but definitely share worthy. They're like little bricks, very dense but have an excellent taste with a great aioli served alongside. The beet salad was also excellent as were the oysters. Will definitely be returning as well as recommending Sandbar.
