Hi there, We were interesting in coming to Breakwater to celebrate my Mother's birthday but would have our children with us (2 and 5 years old). Is this atmosphere quiet and formal or would children (they are well behaved, in my opinion :) ) be ok coming in for dinner with us? My Mom's wish is to have us all, kids included, be a part....but I do not want to bring them if we will be a disturbance in a very quiet restaurant. Thank you
