Be sure to make a reservation in advance. Int is well worth it! The Hospitality was fantastic, the food outstanding! Truffle Fries, Scallops and Burrata (if they happen to still be on the menu try them) and the Grouper is an absolute must! Everything we...More

This is a tough place to review. Clearly they love food and know how to provide excellent service. The experience of dining here is noteworthy because of the effort. Unfortunately the food misses the mark. Maybe because the menu changes every day they appear to...More

We had a memorable meal at the Macintosh, with excellent service and a very energetic atmosphere, but you have to enjoy strong flavors. Many hours of preparation and many many ingredients seem to have gone into every dish. My husband thought it was one of...More
