1 Night in Carmel/Monterey, please help me decide!

If you try Pacific's Edge make sure you get there in time for the sunset. It is simple beautiful. When you call for a reservation they can tell you the best time to be there. It is one of the prettiest restuarants that we have been in. If you decide to dine elsewhere stop there for a drink first. You will have the water and sunset views from the bar.
Have fun!

Restaurant In Parkland FL

I am looking for a place in or near Parkland or Coconut Creek for dinner this Saturday. Does anyone have any suggestions? I saw JB'S Blue Water Grill. Has anyone dined there?

Vietnamese in South Florida

there are two in east Boca. The first one La Tre has been here for many years and consistantly get's rave reviews. I really enjoy it. The secons Cay Da just opened this year. It had a very good review. It is much more casual and from what I understand their atmosphere is lacking. I have not tried it yet.
I hope this helps.

Do you like Vietnamese food? If you do, or if you haven't ever savored treats like pho (soup), hot and spicy chicken salad or spring rolls, then you should man up and pull the trigger. La Tre touts great food at great prices. The atmosphere is casual and mellow, so go ahead and bring a date and show how worldly your palate is.

Cay Da
Amazing food - not great for a party though.
By Carolyn K. | Insider Guru | Rank: 113
If you are looking for an amazing marriage of French and Vietnamese cuisine - Cay Da is the place for you. Located on Federal Highway in Boca Raton - they offer the most amazingly delicious foods. We held a surprise birthday party for a family member there a few months back. While the food was to-die-for, the atmosphere left much to be desired. The restaurant is cramped and there was no way to accommodate the guests comfortably without everyone feeling separated yet cramped. Next time I think we will hold the party elsewhere and have Cay Da cater it for us.

PROS: absolutely incredible food - attentive service
CONS: small restaurant - cramped and not very attractive
