I have been going to the Jersey shore for over 50 years spending most of my time in Avalon, NJ. This is the best meal that I have had in the past 20 years. Service was excellent. We split the burrata, melon, prosciutto starter which was amazing and the mains where exceptional. We will be back.

Food and service were great but this was our 2nd visit and both times, we had to wait, and wait, and wait for the entrees! Over an hour between salads and the main course. Clearly, the kitchen is not running smoothly. We had the same server both times and she knew what we went through the first visit. It was a shame because we really loved the food. If you’re not in a hurry and willing to wait to eat, bring extra BYOB and plan for a long evening.

It was a very nice place with an ocean view. Even though the food was delicious it may have been a bit expensive.
I like to try different places to dine with my wife.

The restaurant was very busy. The service was very prompt and the food was good. It was quite loud and the tables are a little too close together. Outside dining is nice and it is covered.

We were greeted by a very pleasant and helpful staff. There were plenty of
diners, but we didn't feel crowded. The food was very well prepared and all
enjoyed their meals. This restaurant is a BYOB, so you bring your own beer or wine.
It's one of the few places in Sea Isle where you can have an ocean view while dining. It felt as though every member of the staff wished us well and thanked us for coming as we exited.

It is a beautiful restaurant with fantastic ocean views. It is noisy but tolerable. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable; however, they brought our appetizers and our salads all at once making us feel a bit rushed. Despite the rush it was delicious food.

We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter, Enzo, was very attentive, personal and engaging. Service was prompt and very good. Food was very good for the price. We had outdoor seating which was on the sidewalk so that foot traffic kept walking in between the 2 rows of tables.
Would recommend this restaurant.
