I wasn't impressed with the quality of the food, service, or atmosphere. The food was just okay and the atmosphere was noisy and hot. The fence and roofing keeps the breezes from entering the dini g areas. Our server was not attentive. Just very disappointing.

We go every year... This year it seemed like changes were made... The sides could be shared between two people and that is no longer the case... The caesar salad could use a little help...bulk it up ..it looks like bagged lettuce...kind of flat. Lots of great food on the island, hope they were just having an off night!

70s menu, with poor execution. Their signature dish "almond grouper" was about the same quality as Gordon's fish sticks. Fried, heavily sauced, gross. The only saving grace is the ambiance. Go for drinks, the shrimp app was decent. But I agree with others, it's Olive Garden food, perhaps not as well done, with steak house prices.

While we enjoyed our main courses (pork cordon blue & seafood) the side of potatoes were cold. Both Samuel and Derrick were attentive without being bothersome. We had anticipated a very good meal since the prices were a little on the high side.

We really enjoyed Madame Janette's. The portion sizes are really large and when the bus boy came to clean up he said you should've ordered the half size...lol we had no clue there was such a thing..was not mentioned to us at all. Anyway..it's a great ambiance with great food!

Thank tmc0504
