Front Street is very elegant and quite romantic, if not as revered by locals as it used to be (in part because several noteworthy competitors have opened in recent years). Here classic Italian cooking is linked to offerings from Greece, southern France, and even North Africa. There's a nightly char-grilled fish special: match salmon, halibut, or tuna with a Latin, Berber, or Cajun spice rub; lemon-caper butter; or a ginger-soy-wasabi glaze. Other stellar dishes include
sage-and-butternut risotto, and truffled wild-mushroom bisque. The wine list is also a winner.

my wife and I. We were there in Sept. 08. Reservations a must, because we could not get into Front St. the year before. Food is very creative, knowledgeable waitstaff, and just a fine place. It is not a large place, so that's the only drawback.

If rude service is what you're in search of then look no further than this highly-praised fine dining establishment. I had the displeasure of eating here a few years back and encountered the most snotty and condescending server in any of my P-Town dining history. Add to that massive delays in appetizers and entrees being served, incorrect orders, and only mediocre food, and you can be sure this one went to the top of my no-go list. Coincidentally
I have encountered at least half a dozen other people who had similar experiences. In my last job we often booked this restaurant for our guests as per their requests but had to stop after getting continual rudeness over the phone from staff as we attempted to make reservations. Now there are many who cannot stop talking about how wonderful this place is, but I advise caution.
