Has anyone tried this restaurant, do they have
entertainment and do they have a room for private
parties..I'm trying to find a nice place for my parents
50th Wedding anniversary..I would like to take some of
our relatives & friends out to dinner..

Thanks for your help.

    Me again - my recommendation for your 50th anniversary
    party is Piccola Venezia (my favorite). There are
    many posting about this restaurant if you need further
    information. They also have a web site.

      I have to agree with earlier poster Phyllis.
      The food at the Waterfront Crabhouse did not
      impress me. I would steer clear of it.
      The Waters Edge is lovely, but very overpriced.

        Yes, I've been there and it was definitely some of the
        worst food I've had in years. The ambiance might
        appeal to some people--frankly, I found it pretty
        awful. Sorry.

        I'm not saying the food is fabulous, but the Water's
        Edge is lovely and I thought the food at a party there
        was very good considering the number of people. It's
        pricey but quite atmospheric and they are pros.

        I had a very nice party for my husband in Manhattan at
        Moreno's (some people recently posted negative stuff
        here about that place but I had no such experience).
        It was great food and ambiance and well done.
        Reasonable, too. But the private space is about 35
