Wow, was I ever impressed with this gorgeous property! From the moment we drove up, I loved everything about the place. We were seated outside on the beautiful patio with beautiful views of the ocean. We could even see dolphins jumping out of the water from our table.

I decided on the appetizer of sea scallops with the lobster risotto. The menu items are very pricey for lunch but we knew it would be like this. I also had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc from a local winery. Very nice with the scallops. I very much enjoyed my lunch and my DH had the Chicken Thai Salad and a turkey sandwich which he said was very, very good. Our bill without desserts was around $60 but this was an anniversary trip splurge.

After lunch we toured the Four Seasons property and wanted to immediately check in! Maybe next time we visit we'll stay here. This was our first time to SB so I wanted to be close to Stearn's Wharf and the shops on State Street. I would highly recommend The Patio for a casual lunch in a breath-taking setting. ***kim***
