Dessert was least impressive by getting too funky but who cares... More

Make Reservations! Then enjoy a well prepared meal. Food is fresh and well prepared. It is on the pricey side, but the atmosphere, staff and food well make up for expense. My wife had the blackened swordfish, and I had the crab cake. All very tasty. The vegetables were local and fresh.

Rated highly, we had trouble getting a time to eat because of limited seating and the number of people who come here. We wound up getting a reservation early in the evening and enjoyed our food. Bison burger for me and Sher had the scallops and gnocchi. Both were very good and well prepared and presented. Service was good, dessert,... More

My wife and I went here after reading the reviews, we were very impressed with the intimate setting and the staff that really seemed to care. The food was caught that morning and it was tuna sushi which was out of this world. All of the sides were delicious and my wife and I really enjoyed our time there. My... More

I know it is a big deal these days to see where food comes from--so I guess people will like that. All of our meals were exceptionally good. The one problem was this---each of the entrees came with a side or a salad---when we asked to switch from a quinoa side to a cucumber and tomato salad---neither one of which... More

Wonderful location with great views of the water. Staff very attentive and answered all of our questions. Had the Chucktown Shrimp appetizer which was excellent but not overly impressed with the fish dip. Crab cakes were very good but thought the filet was just okay. The place was quite crowded and maybe I was expecting more based on other reviews.

This is one of the few OC restaurants that lists WHERE all of the ingredients came from to make the dishes. Nice to know they work with local farmers and watermen.

Lot of variety on the menu. You can taste the quality of ingredients. Terrific food. Reasonably priced gourmet fare. A bit noisy with the crowd and service is a bit inattentive, but the food quality made up for the overall experience.

Always great! We have been here many times and we are never disappointed. For the first time I did not order the seafood. Instead I tried the pork chop with onion mashed potatoes. It was grilled perfectly and so good.
