I was so sad when La Reve closed so I thought Sandbar would certainly be a unique experience as well but I was wrong. The waiter had no clue about the wines and when the wine steward came to talk to me, he seemed as clueless as the waiter. I picked a bottle he suggested and it was horrible. Some Pinot that tasted more like dirt than wine. We ordered oysters and they were good, then ordered the clam chowder (the chowder had only 3-4 clams in it!!!) So it turned out to be potato chowder if you ask me. Then we ordered ceviche and salmon, which was okay at best. Desert was great, cheesecake and a creme brulee. It's just unfortunate that the cleaning staff began bleaching the floors as we ate our deserts. Of course I asked for them to move us to another table. We began to enjoy ourselves when the staff began to turn out the lights. Well I guess that was our hint to leave the restaurant. This was the most unprofessional experience I have ever encountered at a restaurant and I was expecting so much more from them.

Pros: wine selection and deserts

Cons: service, service and service

Small restaurant, intimate setting, frosted windows, modern feel. Servers are helpful with newcomers so don't be intimidated to ask for suggestions, especially regarding raw oysters. Don't expect your typical cooked seafood. Sashimi, Lobster Rolls, Crabcake sandwiches are usually on the menu. Definitely try the lobster bisque which has a smokey flavor. Also, leave room for dessert - their key lime pie is the best I've ever tasted! Great beer selection (sorry, didn't have any wine, but I'm sure that it's a great selection as well). It's owned/staffed by the owners of Le Reve, which is next door - but it much more casual. This is by far one of my favorite restaurants!

Pros: Food, Fresh Seafood, Beer, Key Lime Pie

Cons: Parking - garage or use Le Reve's valet service
