Have eaten there many times....Boca's best kept secret!!!

If not on the menu, ask Walter (Chef) to make you his Lobster Bisque...THE BEST!

The Rack of Lamb is juicy and seasoned perfectly, Pizza is crisp and loaded with toppings, King Crab portion is huge, and all fish dishes are extremely fresh.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!

place was lousy.... Waited 10 minutes at the table before I got up to go get a waitress... Salad sucked and it took another 10 minutes to get our drinks. I got a steak medium rare it closer to well done. Waited another 15 minutes for our check to come. So in summary the food sucked and the service was worse. I've had better service at KFC. My only question is for the person who reviewd this place in the paper on friday is---were you stoned?

I must agree with blakesta! Who ever wrote the review on this place must have had a few too many cocktails before ordering ... the crabcake was small and over cooked, our salads were over dressed and wilted. For our entree we had chicken breast, and recommened by the reviewer, pork tenderloin ... both dry and tough! Never again! Fire the reviewer!

Overpriced dreck! The food was totally unacceptable and the service sucked ... we hardly saw our waitress maybe she didn't want to interrupt our drinking ... She was absolutely careless ... didn't even ask how our meal was. My salad sucked ... it was overdressed, and the mussels were cold and gross. The bread was the only good thing on the table other then the wine of course! Here is something positive ... the dinning room was empty and the decor was pleasant. Where was everyone if this was a great place to dine? We were there at dinner time (6-7pm). I rate this resturant a (0)!!! If you choose to go because you believe in the review ... you fell for it just like we did and wasted alot of money. Enjoy suckers!

We agree with our St. Augustine Diner.
Upon entering the tastefully decorated restaurant, we were hospitably ushered to a cozy and comfortable booth. The familiar background music was pleasantly subdued. Our waitress appeared immediately and skillfully guided us through the menu.

We chose the seafood chowder, which arrived hot and bubbling to be enjoyed with the warm, crusty bread. Since a seafood pizza is such a novelty, we selected that and the cedar planked salmon. When these dishes arrived (after a short wait) they were ample, hot and fresh. The side vegetables were cooked to a crunchy perfection.

All the while our waitress was inquiring if we needed anything and if our meal had met our expectations. It had, and we will definitely return to enjoy another seafood feast.

Obviously your reviewer based her comments on scanning the menu and did not personally visit this place. You lost a lot of credibility on this one. We were about the only diners in this large place on a Thursday night and for good reason apparently. Thanks alot........

Well thanks for all the negative tips, apparently Judith must have gotten a freebie here because if this were such a great place - it wouldn't be empty and people would be raving about it rather than disparaging it - I WAS planning on going - no more, thanks guys.

Do Not BE Influenced
Thank you Jan Norris for such a great suggerstion your creditability stands as this was a great night for our grandpas birthday the food was prepared first class by the chef who
came from Toronto Canada 5 Star restaruant and offers such a great selection of fresh fish and his wife the Manager was great service and even offer complimentary dessert. A far thing from any other establishment that would not offer such an comforting expereince.

MUST TRY You ont be disappointed.

Don't go here. The drinks were large and plenty of alcohol. Hopefully to get the diner drunk enough, so as not to experience the bad service. The salad only comes with two dressings. Oil and Vinegar and a vinagrette. the salad it self was dull. Of the four orders we placed. Three of them came out wrong. They took three dollars of the bill as compensation. Not enough in my opinion for screwing up three orders. The coffe came out luke warm and we sent it back. I do not recommend this place.
