Fodor's Review

There's a bustling, enticing rhythm here as platters of glistening shellfish get whisked from the oyster bar to the bright dining room. The menu is seasonally driven; all the seafood greats are represented. Start with steamed mussels, the Fijian albacore tuna Niçoise salad, or a New England–style lobster roll. For entrées, consider the line-caught Baja mahimahi sautéed with a pomegranate glaze, the Atlantic cod fish-and-chips, and the bigeye tuna rubbed with maitake

mushrooms. Excellent desserts and a fine wine list round out this top-notch (albeit pricey) downtown dining experience.

Through it back!

I could hear the drum roll even after the drinks came. Then the appetizer arrived and it all went downhill. Pieces of crab shell in the lumbs of not so fresh crab meat started off our dining experience. The entree was beautiful but tasted boring.

Overpriced for somewhat bland food

The place looks fantastic but the food, as well as the wine, is WAY overpriced. Maybe it is just me being from San Francisco and its that Nor-Cal vs. So. Cal thang, but the flavors did not impress - especially for $25 an entree and $7-12 for first course. Service was fantastic none the less. If looking for great seafood, I'd look somewhere else and save some $$$ and go with bolder flavors.

The house that seafood built

This is the best seafood restaurant at this city on the ocean.
