So....with that said... Ambrosia or Blue Coral?
We have 3 seafood lovers and one steak.

Which one is the one that we are going to remember the most and the most delicious?

    I really enjoyed Blue Coral this week. We had some nicely prepared seafood but I noticed quite a few cuts of red meat on the menu. I did a review a few days back if you check.

      I would vote for Blue Coral, though I've never been there, (but will be going there tonight-will try to post a review). This is based more on my experiences with Ambrosia.

      I'm not a big fan of Ambrosia- it's almost too old school for me- dark, overly ornate- almost cheesy. I know that is pretty much the supper club feel they're going for, but it doesn't work for me. It almost feels like a parody, though they do use fine crystal and silver. The first time I went, the food was pretty good, but I went twice more, including once for lunch, and was very underwhelmed. The execution of the kitchen is pretty uneven, and the service was a little creepy, kind of like a character from the rocky horror picture show. Apparently, they're are going through some menu changes (did Gosselin leave?) and the menu no longer has some of the pacific rim influences it used to have.

        Thanks for the suggestions...we finally made the decision...Blue Coral! Can't wait for tomorrow and can't wait to read your review.
