    I would go to West Deck or possibly Ricardos. Both are casual spots though.

    Elements at Bucuti. Sunset dining without feet in the sand!

    Always loved Sunset Grille but had a less than spectacular experience there in July. The horrible DJ at Miro Solo was competing with bad music from a wedding party on the lower grounds which killed any atmosphere. Food was OK but service lacking. We'll not be going again in spite of a wonderful setting with a good view. I can also do without the 18% service charge!

    Thanks for all the options and I will take a look at the menus.
    Thank You also for the feedback on Sunset Grill. I'm not a fan of loud music especially if it's not good!
    I didn't realize they had the 18% service charge which I'm also not a fan of.
    When I went to Ocean Z they had the 18% also and didn't know how much to tip beyond that.
    I believe we went another 10% which we didn't know if that was good or not but 28% above and
    beyond the dinner was enough for us.

    Ocean Z is off my list- sorry. the 18 percent service charge annoys me. I always tip at least 20 percent....but dont put it on my bill unless I have a large party- then I get it. Also heard someone posting about the 18percent is not a tip, I would lose it on that person so I wont be visiting there.

    28 percent is crazy unless you got the best service of your life. I always leave 20 percent for people I dont know and 25 for people I do know...28 is getting way up there, lol.

    Agree with Jay. We were there last month and did not add an additional tip to the 18%. We always tip 20% if we have good service but did not add to the 18% mainly because of the waiter giving us a speech about the tip. If you loved the restaurant/food, go back and just don’t add an additional tip.

    I agree, Don't like the 18 % added period and always leave 20% and maybe round up or add if it"s WoW!
