Huge shrimps, both as shrimp cocktail and coconut crusted. Plus a prime rib too big for the plate. Everything tasted like it was made in house, including fries and sauces. Nice sized bar, but It is not a big place and can get crowded, so best to reserve for a table. Not cheap, but less than comparable fish houses and... More

The décor is lovely -- white linen tablecloths and napkins, windows all around -- and very calm and peaceful. The food is delicious. The view could only be improved by the restaurant being on the canal side of the road, but because the windows are so big, even if you can't really see the boats going up and down the... More

We went with friends during Restaurant Week and every dish was excellent. The regular menu seemed a bit pricey, almost what you'd expect to pay in Manhattan. But the chef here definitely knows his business and based on the quality of the cook and ingredients it just may be worth it. I'd have given it 5 starts...but... Negative? Well, it... More
