To celebrate our one year anniversary, we each planned our own evening/weekend to spread the celebration out (this is because I wasn’t home on the day of our anniversary… wah wah).
We got there just as the sun was setting, so we were able to enjoy this view.
The décor inside the restaurant was modern when you first enter, and then “upscale beachy” as I like to say. The wait staff was friendly and attentive (we never had to ask for refills), and the food was delivered quickly — which was good because we were hungry!
A basket of bread whet our appetite before the main course was served. David ordered the double cut pork chops which were served over creamy grits and came with asparagus and an apple demi sauce. He said the apple sauce went together well with the pork chop.
I was craving seafood, so I went with the Gulf diver scallops which came with risotto and asparagus. Delicious. The asparagus was huge, the scallops were cooked perfectly and the risotto was amazing. Two thumbs up from me.
The view, the service and the food were excellent. We compared this restaurant to Cafe Tango, which we think is better food-wise because of the asiago cheese put in the olive oil that comes with the bread, the salads and the fresh pasta. But Vue on 30a is great, too. We already are planning to go back for lunch one day.
And, of course, we also celebrated our anniversary by sharing a bite from the top of our wedding cake.
The cake tasted pretty good — not as good as when we ate it on our wedding day, obviously. But the frosting had a distinct freezer burn taste. Still, a fun tradition.
My plans for our anniversary celebration continued the next morning with breakfast at Fish Out of Water in Watercolor. I’ll be posting a separate review of that marvelous meal!
