Went for dinner the other night. Service was very good, food was exceptional. My husband and son has the pork chop with apple compote. Chop was huge and b very tender. I had a shrimp and pasta dish that was excellent. All in all, a very good experience.

The best meal I've had in many many years. We actually went back the next day for the same thing we had this evening. Such a fantastic menu and the quality cannot be beat. The appetizers were incredible, the main meal was phenomenal and the desserts were impossible to pass up

We had the best time. The food was very good. We had a person in our party that was a bit of a challenge and it was handled very well! Gina was attentive, very personable and efficient with our service. She handled our challenging party member very well. We will return.

Service was a little slow but that’s due to staffing shortage. We enjoyed our time with a cool beverage catching up with friends. Lack of staff seems to be the norm these days so if you don’t have the patience to wait don’t go out.

We loved our dining experience at Cape Haze Tavern! The distinguished Maiter D showed us to our table and our server was knowledgable and helpful. I had the beet salad with salmon, yummy! My husband had the special Ahi Tuna. After dinner we took in the piano in the Rabbit hole, a swanky back room with a lovely bar and an art deco vibe. We will return!

A wonderful experience. Food was great, but don't let them show you the dessert tray; desserts were irresistible and very good. We look forward to returning to the Rabbit Hole Piano Bar when it re-opens in the season. The trim and finish in the piano bar looks like something from a luxurious ship in the 1920's. Very classy. Rabbit figurines, Rabbit light fixtures, Rabbit door knobs.

This was our first visit and we definitely will be back. Dan greeted and seated us and gave us a few minutes to look over the menu and came back to answer our questions and walked us through the menu. There were so many choices we decided to order all small plates which weren’t very small. John was our server and did a great job although it was very slow and we still had to ask for water refills. The homemade rolls are to die for. We started with the duck, which was our favorite, a very crisp salad with fruit, nuts and a delicious raspberry dressing and the tuna tower which also was excellent. My husband ordered the burger MedRare and it came out perfectly with caramelized onions and bacon and was awesome. We also ordered the calamari with a chili sauce what was very tasty. Our eyes were bigger than our stomachs so we brought some of it home but thoroughly enjoyed tasting so much of the menu and washing it down with a great bottle of Cab! This is a hidden gem and now that the off season is here will be a regular spot for us. Thank you.

I love Reuben sandwiches. The one I had last night was so salty that I could not tell that I was eating corn beef, I told the manager and he kind of shrugged it off. I am very easy to please with food. If I were the owner, I would tone down the salt.

Meal was excellent…but apparently a problem getting the food out. (Perhaps the waitress did not put the order in when she got it.) Extremely long wait; watched many others who came in after our table being served. Received a poor excuse from the waitress saying that a large table order for 6 people held up OUR order. (Ridiculous !) This is our second visit in a week…hopefully a third try will have better service. Excellent meal, once we got it!

Food good to very good, but not spectacular; making pricing high for the value. Fried mushroom app, very dry, breading too hard, and served with little sauce. Portions are generous. Service was slow; understanding they were slammed and did not have the staff to manage the volume, either in the kitchen, on the floor, or both. Had reservations at 6:00 PM, ordered promptly, and served dinner at 7:00 PM. Staff very friendly and respectful. Maybe a bad night; will try it again.

The restaurant was not crowded and there was a lot of wait staff. Took 2 minutes to get our drink and over an hour for our food. Food was delicious. Disappointed they had a summer menu. We were expecting the menu we were used to. Waitress was great but waited too long for our food although very good. Chef needs to not drown the meals with too much sauce. We will go back
