My sister-in-law took me here for Happy Hour for my 20th Anniversary and it was great! Mary was our bartender and she immediately greeted us and offered tastes of wines. We ordered the fried calamari, Umami Kobe Sliders (comes with 4 sliders) and crab cakes. Awesome. Can't wait to go back.

My husband and I climbed up on 2 bar stools. We were greeted by the owner and barman. Great bar top seems to be onyx. A perfect dirty martini and a martini with creme de violette. Calamari, mussels and Kobe beef sliders. All very very delicious.. The mussel broth was sopped up with extra bread. 2 more glasses of wine... More

I have been wanting to try this restaurant for quite some time. It was Friday Night Date Night and this is where we chose to have dinner. What a wonderful place this is. Loved the indoor/outdoor dining area, we dined inside due to no table being available, but this will give me a good reason to return. The restaurant is... More

We visited during restaurant week, and got a 3-course meal for $25. Everything was delicious, and the portion sizes were just right for a lovely meal. The service was excellent.

The brunch was set for 10am we arrived early to locked doors. When staff realized there was several people waiting they opened up and invited into the resturants. Brunch selections from seafood omelette to chocolate chip pancakes. The food was good, the staff fun. We would go again. A bit pricey. But you get what you pay for.

Never had a bad meal or bad service here. Plus, you don't have to wait long to get your food, which is great if you are trying to eat something before your next meeting!

Everyone from Barrett and Mary at the bar to Grace who was our server made the evening enjoyable. The dishes were prepared as we ordered them and delicious. The evening was pleasant so we sat on the porch and had a great view of the Western sky. Save room for the bread pudding.

The food is very good but expensive. The fish I think is brought in fresh daily. The atmosphere is great and classy.

Even though it was not on the menu the cooks made me an oyster po boy. It was delicious. Seafood chowder was thick with chunks of crab and fish. Served at the perfect temperature. Service was superb, efficient without felling rushed. Looks like they have a great happy hour too!
