I never write reviews but this time I had to. I learned from the restaurant owner that dining parties who make their reservations on open table are second class patrons! I arrived on time and checked in with the owner. We were a party of 6 and I had requested a table inside. She replied snidely how I was “the Open Table reservation” and then ignored me and sat other parties who came in after me! I stared her down until she couldn’t ignore us any longer when she advised that she doesn’t have a table for us inside and that she doesn’t guarantee inside seating. I remind her that her website states that they don’t guaranty outdoor seating not indoors at which point she dismisses me again. Finally she seats us inside in a charmless room off of the main dining room that had Xmas decor still on the table. Fortunately service after that was great but the food sucked - dried out lamb chops and bronzini, tasteless pasta and lousy coconut shrimp. The mussels weren’t bad though. But the live music was so bad that the staff we spoke to complained about having to work with that horrid noise. They had a singer - or should I say - screamer, who shouldn’t be allowed to sing outside of her shower. We left with headaches and later had upset stomachs. What a disappointing night. Won’t be back there

That’s the only issue. Music too loud due to being all tile inside the building. Turn down the singers microphone

Food and service were very good. Enjoyed the S African lobster tail with clams over the fettuccine. Presentation very nice, good buratta caprese salad. Drinks were perfect. Service excellent and predictive. While the singer was very good, the volume was very loud, too loud for many of my friends at the table. And, when he took a break, they had another staff person sing. There was almost no time we could talk to each other at the table. Sort of knew from the get go that this might be an issue, as our server’s voice (what was left of it) was hoarse. They need to decide if they want to be a supper club or a restaurant.

Eat in Sunset Catch often , usually very happy with quality/ potions of food. One of our party ordered the surf and turf special for $69, extremely high price, more than the tip steakhouses charge. The portion was child size. Tiny lobster tail, steak was tiny piece, maybe 3 ounces. Filled plate w French fries. Although it was good, it’s quite nervy to charge this much money on an appetizer sized portion. She was hungry after dinner., as she doesn’t eat fries and was not given a choice of sides. Highly unlikely we will be dining here again , as it is pure rip off.

Very nice BUT cannot go back. I am allergic to garlic and they are not accommodating. Not one vegetable without garlic. Limited dishes for me. I have no problem at other Italian restaurants. Good quality food but it is a shame they are not considerate for diet issues.

Sasha was a wonderful server. Seated immediately, great outdoor space. Wife had the lobster Mac, very different, lobster tail on wide noodles in a Parmesan cream sauce-loved it. I had the Caesar salad with shrimp, somewhat lacking in flavor and the shrimp were “whimpy” and undercooked, lacking seasoning. Friends had surf and turf-excellent. Grilled octopus,bruschetta basket, and coconut shrimp, were wonderful. All-in-all a very good spot indeed.

Dinner was delightful and delicious . Had the Branzino in light scampi sauce with wilted spinach. Hubby had flash fried snapper with broccoli rabe. Everything freshly made and well seasoned well. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful view of the intracoastal. They had live music which was an added bonus for me. Covid guidelines were followed. Eric our server was pleasant, friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.

Grilled octopus excellent
Meatballs were generic. C’mon chef, you can do better.
7 fishes Seafood special was very good. Large portion so served at least two and priced as such.
Chocolate ganache cake tasteless.
Live music as a nice touch.
Nice view
Overall, there are better options along the intracoastal.

Great food, service, and venue. Highly recommend it. Staff worked hard to accommodate our large party. Table 85 was great. Beautiful view. Also great live music. Gino our waiter was exceptional. The owner was on site making sure everything was as good as it could be. Kudos to her and I’m sorry I can’t remember her name. Well done.
