Had the monk fish for dinner, and it was delicious. The chocolate dessert was good also. The workers are friendly and made you feel comfortable. You could dress up or down.

We've been going to Turtle Bay since they first opened and have always had a good experience. Owner (Sam) definitely takes care of you especially if kitchen is running a bit behind. Food is excellent and I really like the ambiance. I've recommended Turtle Bay to friends and family and they also have become repeat customers.

I just recently went to this place for my friend's bday and a bit pricy. I liked it and it could be better as far as the plate serving. The only concern I have is it is a bit pricy. I like the live band they have there too...Customer service is good.

Decided to go to dinner here based on the reviews from this site. It's a medium sized place with live lounge music. When we arrived all of the tables were full but we were seated within 20 minutes (pretty good). We were told that our order would be taken when we all closed our menus when we sat down and then 5 minutes later as our server passed by. After watching our server pass our table about 5 times after closing our menus I was beginning to wonder what the rush was in the first place. DInner took another 35-40 minutes to reach our table. The food was good but not "knock your socks off" good for the price.

It is fairly loud and dificult to have a conversation. Seemed like there were quite a few regulars and the staff all knew them so that was nice. Overall, an averge place with a really nice staff but a bit pricey for the quality.

been coming here since they opened in 2001, always good! We take all our out of town family/visitors here for special nights out. Ahi tuna keeps me coming back, and the steaks are my husband's delight. Cool atmosphere, nice cocktails. Strange location, but parking is sooo easy and you forget you're in a strip mall. Skip dessert (nothing wrong with it), and go to Cold Stone right next door.

Pros: parking, very fresh food, good live music

Cons: in a strip mall

Happy hour stars at 4pm to 6 M-F. Great drinks and appetizers, especially the Ahi Poke. Or my secret favorite is the hamburger. Other than that, the entrees are deliciously prepared by the Executive Chef, Sam, who is a graduate of the California Culinary Academy. The ambiance is great for parties and romantic twosomes, I've seen both, done both. It does get lively on Fridays and Saturdays because of the live music but it's a good time for all. You'll love the presentations, very artistic and tastes good, too. I'm going back !!

Two of went on a weeknight for dinner. We could see a busboy slicing bread (from Grace Baking) in the back corner. The bread was still in its brown wrapper. Tacky. Our waiter seemed new and rather unpolished for a seemingly upscale restuarant. I had the monkfish wrapped in bacon (potatoes were not very warm). My dinning partner has scallops wrapped in bacon. The chef must have gotten a good deal on the bacon, because I think they had steak wrapped in bacon somewhere on the menu too! The scallops were very good. Well meaning restuarant, but needs a little more polish.

Good food, good service, good ambience. Prices can be a little steep. Highly recommend the ahi tartare.
