Heading says it all. The restaurant was packed and rightly so. My wife and I shared a bunch of dishes and each one was very good. Service was excellent as well. The only negative was finding parking, but certainly worth the effort.

The older I get, the more sensitive I become to the quality of food. Suffice it to say, I've given this restaurant 5 stars (even without the sea view). Exceptional food, matched (at least in our experience) with exceptional service. Well worth a try.
