Very Good Seafood

I was in town for business and actually ended up eating here both nights. The first night we were staying at the Doubletree at the Monroeville Mall and we're looking for someplace decent that was close by and chose it based on Trip Advisor reviews.

Location is quite hidden and it was a surprise to discover this cool restaurant that serves unusual taste combinations. Sit down and eat slowly!

Thank you to the Manager(Matt) and server (Brian) for a fantastic experience for our out of town visitors. The staff were extremely attentive and no request was too much trouble. The meals were fantastic starting with the calamari appetizer that just melted in your mouth. The entrees of Red Snapper and Stuffed Filet Mignon were perfectly prepared and delicious. The... More

Yes, the restaurant is hidden not just in a mall but very small "store front"/lackluster entrance. We arrived on a Monday night to a dead restaurant. The staff was bored to death, dragging their feet, tattered clothing and frankly I wouldn't hire any of the staff. The decor is average but for the prices they charge/ type restaurant they are...

Overall very good, but I had the feeling the fish wasn't fresh. The crab cake while very good had an underlying hint of being masked and was quite small. The mahi tacos were okay, but had a fishy odor. Cole slaw was very good and service was impeccable. I doubt I'll return when back in the area based on this... More

The food is decent quality, but it's very expensive. The portion size is small and your entree does not come with sides. You have to order those separately and pay extra. The service is rather slow on top of the other shortcomings. Not worthwhile the price. I do not plan on returning.

My husand and I stopped overnight in Monroeville on our trip to D.C. After a long day of traveling, we just wanted to relax in a quiet restaurant. We were pleased by the decor and since the restaurant was not crowded, it fit the bill. The restaurant is somewhat pricy and we were not overly hungrey, so we decided on... More

Good food, very expensive, small portions, no sides. Everything is extra. Waited over an hour for dinner when the place only had 3 tables with people, so not crowded. Drinks took at least 15 minutes every time to show up. Bill over $500 for 6 people, 2 of which were teenagers and not drinking. Dark décor. Told the manager about... More
