This restaurant has been closed for several years. In its place, a Chinese Buffet has opened, which is nothing like Sixteen Front was. Sixteen Front is missed.

It has left the building and been replaced by a Chinese food restaurant. The owners may have felt with the season patronage only it was hard to profit by. An Ok buffet has replaced it..

This restuarant is now closed and has been replaced by the Golden Wok, which has the best Chinese Food around. Even the take out is great by the time it arrives home. I understand it has a lovely buffet, but I haven't tried it yet....More

Lovely restaurant with high standards of service and food quality. Chef is very good, food is always delightful to look at and dining here with friends or family very pleasant. Often live entertainment. After repeated visits still happy with high quality standard.

Unusual menu and somewhat overpriced. Although pleasant, waitress appeared to be high school aged and not skilled for a higher end restaurant. Plastic tables/chairs on patio and area appeared neglected

Party of 6 with previous mixed experiences decided to try again and weren't disappointed. Good portion of Lamb meant leftovers, lobster and shrimp pasta was delicious with a good number of each. Service was good, server pleasant. Happy we went, will go back.
