Well recommended, and the recommendations were spot on. Sound-side waterfront restaurant with fine dining, very nice wine list, and extremely good service staff. We were there in the off season, and the place was very empty (we ended up closing it down), but there was never any hint they were trying to rush us out and shortening the quality of the food or service. The place has plenty of outdoor seating (too cold this time of year), nice decor and is right in the heart of the Duck commercial area.
Salads and soup were very high quality and well presented. Wild salmon and rockfish were perfectly cooked and well presented. The in-house dessert was creative and delicious.
