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.

Horrible access and parking at 7pm. I wasn't blown away by the food. Not much bang for the buck. Sat at a table next to some guy yelling at his girl friend "F_ck...F_ck.." Wait Staff did nothing.

This was a nice little restaurant with great happy hour deals on drinks and half price raw oysters. I suggest a reservation though, as we were there on a Friday evening and had to wait for a seat to open up at the bar. The grilled oysters were good and they had a variety of raw oysters from different areas.
