The food was great. The waiter and hostess went out of their way to make us comfortable. We had our mother in a wheelchair. We sat for a long time watching the amazing people having a fabulous day on the ocean. Very accommodating.

This is a nice place to grab a drink, get a decent meal and of course, people watch. We got the spaghetti and it happened to be very good.

The food is excellent and we actually saw deliveries of fresh food each day we stayed! The bartenders are awesome!

Horrible food, service, drinks and management! I had been here several times in the past but this experience was just terrible. Frozen shrimp, Risotto that was dry and bland and then they scam you on drink prices by up charging for most items. Never again

Stumbled upon this place while in South Beach, really glad we did. Had the burrata & oysters to start both were very good. Followed with Lobster ravioli and margarita pizza both good and filling. Drinks of course are over priced but service & food were worth it. Concetta our server was fabulous. Beware a service charge is automatically added to... More

Ordered jumbo grilled shrimp, all head and a medium tail. For $30? Waiter never returned to see how we were doing it offer more water. Will not recommend this place.

People watch with an ocean backdrop. Pricey, but a half price dinner special made it a reasonable value. The ceviche was terrific and the seafood pesto risotto was some of the best we've ever had.
