We decided to go here to celebrate my friend's birthday because she said she loved the food here. The online reviews seemed pretty promising and we love trying new places, so of course we were all about it! The experience was a disappointment to say the least. We didn't plan our visit during a burlesque show, so my review is strictly on our meal and the related January. We arrived on time for our rez and were seated immediately. The tables are incredibly close together in an attempt to jam as many into the room as possible, but it really didn't impact the environment for us. Before we even ordered drinks, a server carrying food to another table dropped a plate on which promptly splattered through the back of the wooden chair and onto my abrupt "sorry about that" from him and it was forgotten - could it be that the tables are so close together there's no room for the servers to move about safely? I'm thinking yes. High points of our evening included: the oysters, they were delish; the drinks - the pink madonna hit the spot for me; and the garlic bread - good, but not great. We got our food and everything looked stunning, I was so excited to dive in...and then I did. I ordered the seared scallops, which tasted great, but were cold. Because the taste was good, I decided not to send the food back and end up with double warmed, almost certainly worse off scallops. At this point I was prepared to give this spot 3 stars, because things were good, but not great. Then my friend shared a shrimp from her cioppino with me and the chef had failed to devein the shrimp even slightly. Lazy and gross, but worth sending back? Nah. Then my boyfriend pulls a bone out of his mouth while eating the risotto. He wrote it off as a mishap, but our friend mentioned it to the server just to make the chef aware of the hazard, specifically stating that we don't expect them to do anything now that we've eaten everything. After Alexandra disappeared briefly, she promptly returned to tell us that the faceless manager disagreed with my boyfriend's assessment that the fragment that he pulled from his mediocre risotto was bone, and in fact the piece was bread crust. Really? Because you can't tell the difference between a bone fragment and bread crust when it's in your mouth? There's a right way to handle things and a wrong way, and whoever this faceless manager is, s/he obviously lacks competence and/or just plain doesn't give a damn. To add insult to potential injury, we were sent out cookies as a "sorry," which of course contained nuts - after we had made them aware of my allergy - and some bits of chocolate for me - gee thanks. Who serves cookies with nuts in them to the boyfriend of the person with an allergy? Someone who doesn't think or doesn't care. They would have been better off sending nothing - just like we requested! If no stars was a choice, I'd go with that. But the one star I am giving is for Alexandra, the server who was put in the awkward place of telling my boyfriend that the faceless manager says he's a liar. Awkward for us, awkward for her, and completely inappropriate. She was great considering the circumstances. All in all, the service was good, the management is atrocious and absent, and the chef is obviously doing something wrong. We came here with the intention of checking it out for warmer days and maybe planning a visit during a burlesque show with friends from out of town...but honestly, I'd be hesitant to return.

the food is great haven't been to see the show. Only thing I would change is the cramped dining area

The Italian fare and pasta is filling but the Ribeye was amazing. If you go on a Friday there's usually a cabaret and burlesque show indoors that you can witness for free if you get seated on the deck. Definitely a sight. Great back deck with a view of the sound on a great day.

Food was great, experience was unique, and the service was top notch. We really enjoyed our meal here. We were here on a night without entertainment, but would be interesting to experience that as well

We enjoyed our dinner here. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly. The Pink Door comes up as a great place for people with food allergies. They did have some options, but I thought with all the hype there would have been more. Overall, we did enjoy our meal.

Delicious food (caprese, bolognese, formaggio!) Sat on the outside deck which looked and felt like an entirely different restaurant from the inside. It was my first time - I want to go back and sit inside for the ambiance. The deck did have a nice view of the water. Lovely vibe.
