Came here only for drinks tonight, great variety of wine but no draft beer, but a good variety of bottle beer. Food looks good but I think I missed out by not having dinner here. Next time.
Fantastic food
Short version: If you are a fan of fine dining, this is the best spot (at least the I've found) on the island. Period. If you like wine, this place is for you.Long version: One thing that this island isn't known for is fine dining. That's fine, but as someone who enjoys good wine, atmosphere, and entrees worth the $30 price tag, I've been feeling incomplete. Enter Formaggio Grill. This place is truly spectacular. I honestly got a kick out of reading all of these reviews mentioning how expensive it was. Do they also review sushi places and complain about the raw fish? Formaggio isn't expensive for no reason. My wife and I shared the calamari starter and it was some of the best calamari we've ever had. They had jalapenos, fried squash, fried mushrooms, and delicious sauce unlike I've ever seen for calamari. It was delicious, well cooked, and worth the price (which honestly is a good descriptor for my whole night at Formaggio). I've included a picture of the Garlic Ahi which was my entree (medium rare). I can't even describe how good it was. Just do yourself a favor, go there and order for yourself. You may also notice the 8 wine glasses in the shot. Formaggio Grill has wine by the bottle, 6 oz glass, or 2 oz glass. Our server chose two flights of 4 glasses (2 oz), one flight for me and one for my wife. The wines were numbered and we were given a paper to look at after with the names of the wines. I had more fun trying mine and my wife's blind wine flights than I have had at any other dining experience on the island. If you are even considering getting into wine, expanding your tastes or trying something new, this is your place. I found some new wine I didn't know I liked last night. The 2 oz glasses are fairly reasonable, just over 1/3 the price of the 6 oz glass. Let's talk about the atmosphere. I'm used to places like this being much more dressed up on the mainland. Here, patrons were in a wider variety of clothing. I saw a woman with a wrap over her bathing suit and a guy with a backwards hat. I saw women in dresses and guys in button ups. It seems more like anything goes dress wise but that probably has more to do with the island than the restaurant. Overall, this was an amazing experience. My food and wine were phenomenal and I will be coming back. Definitely for a special occasion or just when I feel like having a nice date.
