A quick breakdown: Food 10 Service 8.5 Atmosphere 8.5 but would have been a 10 if we had a better table. I had made a reservation a month in advance and got a poor location. Kinda bummed but I'd definitely go back again!

We were fortunate to be visiting during a lobster night. The options, preparation and flavor were over the top. We enjoyed the wonderful view, service and all the courses. The setting is perfect. Our compliments go to the chef.
