I have eaten here a few times over the years. The food is never a disappointment. I had the guacamole and it never disappoints. The restaurant is a great location to people watch, have a drink or two and some great food.

I was very disappointed in the service tonight. No one in our party ordered a hot meal and it took over an hour for us to get our dinners. Getting the check was another issue. It took forever.

On the boardwalk, large outside patio and the food is great. Fun for a weekend dinner and the prices are not high. Service was outstanding.

We visited Vitea a few times over two years ago and really liked it. Not so this morning! We were seated in an offhanded manner, given menus and served pastry (not nearly the selection we rembered). Coffee came fairly soon, but then we waited and...More
