Boca Landing
999 E. Camino Real

The Waterstone Resort & Marina's signature restaurant, Boca Landing, offers the city's only waterside dining and shows off its prime location and views. The mostly small-plates menu features Asian-inflected tuna tartare, green curry mussels and fried calamari. Probably the best dish, though, is the thoroughly continental filet mignon with crab and béarnaise, with wickedly luscious house-made hazelnut gelato coming in a very close second. Dinner nightly.

Contemporary bistro. The menu changes daily but some faves here include filet mignon carpaccio, seared tuna poke, seared diver scallops, slow-cooked lamb pappardelle, and more. Oh, and the Meyer lemon tart? 'Nuff said. Outside tables offer the best option for conversation.
