Completely overrated. Tough lobster, crazy bad service, skimpy old dessert. The room was beautiful. Our particular waitress Johyess wonderful. Sammolier was incompetent. None of us will ever go back.

I was part of a special celebration for about 25 people. Banquet Manager Jennifer Hudson made everything run smoothly and was ready to meet every need. The food and service were wonderful and the setting couldn't be nicer. A true gem on this remarkable island.

I thought Toppers was very good, but the prix fixe menu seemed like they were trying just a little bit too hard to craft unusual meals or pairings. The staff was terrific.More
