A beautiful setting. The restaurant gets mixed reviews (and some very poor ones). We have dined here twice in the past three years at request of guests and it has been fine. We made reservations for 2/15 (avoided Valentine's Day) as current guests wished to try it. Our table for 4 was along the rail, a perfect spot....out of the wind and with a nice view. The table was set and ready but hostess kept disappearing, therefore we were seated 15 minutes past our 6:30 reservation time. Waiter took our drink order and they were delivered in a timely manner. He came back to take our food orders. First course arrived and they were good , not exceptional but good. Caprese salad, house salad, the marinated mixed seafood, and a soup.
Then we waited and waited and waited for our main courses. Waiter never stopped by to pour the wine (yes, we can and did pour our own :wink:). Finally waiter stopped to say our dinners were coming and we continued to wait. I finally got up (no objections from anyone in our group) to speak to the manager. Yes, wait here for the, I am at the first table, send the manager over. Waited again, no food, no manager. It is now approaching 8:30. Easy decision, we will leave. Again, asked the cashier for the manager, he pointed her out ....the hostess.....I spoke with apology, just mumbled that they were very busy. (If your kitchen can't handle the volume then don't take the reservations!) We paid for what we consumed and left....just a bit over 2 hours after our scheduled reservation. Never again!!
