I’ve been there two times in the last 10 days, I had the cod, it wasn’t cooked and next time a salad and it was mush……I’ve always loved it there but something has happened with the food,

Service and ambiance was wonderful. Everyone from the waiter to the valet were very friendly and professional. My only recommendation is with one dish. The crispy potato salmon dish could have been better texture wise. The combination of crispy potatoes on top of fish makes me think I’m chewing on fishbones (even though that was not the case). Perhaps the potatoes could be prepared in another manner so not to induce bones in my fish paranoia.

Very upscale but a bit expensive. Who knows, I haven't been out to eat much over the past year. The deck seating has a delightful view, but hey, it's summertime in Florida, so a bit warm. The tablecloths were changed promptly between diners and that was comforting. The bathroom was likewise very clean. Service was Outstanding and they let my dining partner and I sit to chat and sip water as long as we liked. The watermelon salad was also delicious. I will come back, but I would prefer there be a few less expensive options on the menu. All in all, a wonderful experience.

The service, drinks and food were all impeccable! We didn't feel rushed like we often do at many other restaurants. The day of our reservation I changed my original request from a patio table to an inside table and asked to add one more person to the group. The hostess was very kind and found a way to honor my request, even with such short notice. We sat in the library and had a wonderful time. Thanks Yellow Dog. We will definitely be back!!
