One of our favorite spots in all of Miami. They will be moving in the next six months or so with the massive construction project being adjacent and encroaching a bit. As for our dinner, we arrived to a very lively scene on a recent Friday night. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hostess & manager both get... More

My husband and I dined at the bar, and received great service from the wait staff on a Saturday evening. We took the bartender's suggestion and ordered a sampler platter of oysters. Six were from the East Coast (Island Creek, Rhode Island Wilds and Blue Points), and six were from the West Coast (Kumamoto, Sea Cow and Penn Cove). They... More

To be honest I was expecting to try some good sea food and ordered fish soup and some grilled fillet. My wife ordered first ribs and as a second meal chicken. My guess wasn't so lucky as I expected, I cook better. And my wife got an over salted dishes. Despite all the wine and services were perfect. Maybe oysters... More

We went on a sunday night and the place was jumping. Ambiance was great, lots of energy and enthusiasm. Our server was knowledgeable but the service was slow. The oysters were very fresh but the entree, while tasty, was a bit overcooked. Overall prices were good, and i would go back for the oysters and give the entree's another try.

My husband and I met up with some friends in Miami for Sunday brunch. Our waiter was outstanding (unfortunately, I’m blanking on his name at the moment). There was a group of about 8 of us, we brunched for about 2 hours. The drinks were good, my husband enjoyed the bottomless bloody Mary special. I was debating with some food... More

Fire grilled oysters are not something you find often. The offering here was one of the best I have had. Their fish dishes were also exceptional. Great appetizers such as chevice, and fresh conch salad. A bit noises and crowded but certainly worth a visit.

Great selection of oyster and seafood. Best salt baked Bronzino ever. Delicious soft shelled crab and cioppino. Lively after work bar and energetic music. Service a little inattentive however.
