Nice view, easy parking across the street. Swordfish and scallops were very good. Seafood special (a fra diavlo combo with mussels, clams, lobster, shrimp, etc) was excellent. Ginger martini and Mai Tai were also excellent. Blood orange margarita was ok. Very good service.

Our family was generally pleased with dinner. My Shrimp Madagascar in a cream sauce with rice was excellent, although on the small side. The atmosphere and furnishings in the interior dining room can be improved upon.
