This is a great place to take friends or family from out of town. Not only is the seafood excellent they have an incredible wine list. The service is always great and so is the atmosphere.

I think this is my all time favourite restaurant, it is so romatic. The food is wonderful, the service is outstanding. Try and get a water view because it is breath taking.

This is a great place for either happy hour or more formal dining. Each time I've visited, both the food and service were good. It sure doesn't hurt that the location has a water view.
