This review has nothing to do with the restaurant. Everything to do with the people who own and run it. I just was there this last weekend 5/28/06 for a wedding on the beach and reception to be held in one of their banquet halls and have never experienced such poor customer service and I wasn't even the person getting married or part of the wedding party. When we asked about moving the arch back a few feet it was a big deal. When we came to set up reception hall comments were made about the centerpieces that were chosen. In their defense they were having some personal issues that day but personal issues need to be left at the door when it's time to become professional. Then to top everything they decided to end the reception 1 hour early because they were having a bad day!!!! The couple getting married spent $8000.00 to be told at their own reception that it was going to end an hour early!!! I work in customer service where word of mouth is more powerful than any advertising and you have to treat people like they are valued customers or they won't come back and they will have negative things to say about you and your business everytime it's brought up. These were just a few of the issues that we encountered this weekend, this is a family owned business and they didn't seem to care at all about the way they were behaving or treating their customers!! There is enough stress and drama when you are getting married you certainly don't need more from the people you are paying a great deal of money to hold the wedding and reception!!! Save yourself extra drama and stress and keep looking!!!!
A great place to watch the sunset as a jazz combo plays. The food is unique and well done with a cuban fusion. The goat cheese empanadas with a guava sauce are the best. Have not found anything ever to complain about and have been there numerous times. Sunday nights will sometimes feature Steve Oliver, one of the best Smooth Jazz guitarists around.
