The restaurant appeared fresh and full of good offerings. I ordered a bouillabaisse that listed lobster as the second ingredient, but the meal had no discernible lobster whatsoever. When we noted this to the wait staff, I received a tiny crawfish-sized claw about the size and girth of my pinky. The cost of the boulliabiasse was also higher than that... More

if you enjoy real seafood, not red lobster, this is the place to go. The seafood mixed grill is great. the meal comes with two sauces which lends itself to everything on the plate..well maybe not the mash potatoes..but then again i havent tried that. the scallops are always cooked perfectly, not tough and not slimy. Ive never cared for... More

Wow. The food was absolutely amazing, the service impeccable, and the menu had something for everyone. Four different meals - four of those were the best of the type we've had anywhere. The ambiance is extraordinary in every respect. One of our best experiences anywhere in several decades!!

We had a table for four. The appetizer sampler was more than enough and delicious. Each entree got great reviews. We did lots of sharing and the Mahi Mahi was my favorite. You can pick from the daily fish list and also get two delicious sides. This is in contrast to so many steak places that charge a super high... More

It was quite a surprise to find a seafood restaurant this good in Kansas City. We had large combination appetizer, that was just great. Our entrees of lobster tails was excellent. All seafood is flown in daily.

Our party of six was seated at a lovely table. Our server informed us that the coffee-brewing was very slow, so we waited about 20 minutes for it. The cold seafood assortment was excellent; the carving station had one knife for both meats which caused concern for a customer ahead of us. Tasty omelets took a long time because there... More

Wine menu is very good, with sig. variety and ability to both order a good selection of glasses, as well as bottles. Prior reviews of consistency are correct as have been here several times over 2.5 yrs. and never fails, tho easy... More

Try the King Salmon it is delicious. Also the roasted vegetables are fantastic. The atmosphere with the live acoustic music was a perfect compliment to a great evening. The food is a bit pricey but definitely worth it.

We came in with a group of 11 people, we were given 2 servers and they did well to support our large group. The food was all very good, the recommendations from the server were all well received. Only negative: They were a little slow to clear our first course of cold seafood, so the plates piled up when our... More
