we WERE NOT ABLE TO BOOK A TABLE IN THE RESTAURANT BUT TOLD THAT A TABLE WOULD COME UP IN THE PATIO IF WE WERE PREPARED TO WAIT. AS IT HAPPENED WE WERE ABLE TO BE SEATED ON ARRIVAL. The tuna and cod were cooked to perfection. Starters are large, we began to realise that its best to share. Not... More

Nothing bad, but I felt like I was in a diner. Limited menu, nothing recognizable on the wine list. Oysters fine, but at. $3.25 apiece, do you want to spend $40 for a dozen. Lobster ro small, tasteless. Great fries though. Halibut good but a lunch portion. I guess I need a more traditional Boston seafood place. Big disappointment.

Delicious and inventive food - the grilled corn cannelloni and moles frites were particularly good. Attentive service, but not overly so. We sat on high stools which some might not like but I didn't mind. There were normal chairs at other tables.

Went here for a late dinner with my cousin and her friend. I had the lobster roll, and it was a good cold one. We also had a variety of oysters, and those were excellent. Good wine. It is a pricey place to go, but worth it!

I came here twice when visiting Boston, once alone sitting at the oyster bar, and once with my son and a friend at a nearby table. Both times we enjoyed great service, an unparalleled choice of oysters and clams from the raw bar, and a delicious entrees. We enjoyed the "classic" dishes best... my son bit into his lobster roll...

First visit to Boston and wanted to have oysters in a casual setting. We LOVED this restaurant. It is quite small with an open kitchen and a busy bar. We were 4 with 2 teenagers and the service was very friendly and fast. There was a downpour which pushed diners outside to come in but the commotion kind of added... More

This is a smallish, buzzy, trendy restaurant. There is a counter area and also seating at tables. We went on a Friday night. As a UK visitor, I found the atmosphere electric. We sat at the counter and watched the skilful kitchen staff prepare the food. The noise level was agreeably high. (No piped music, thankfully). I had oysters which... More

While the service was very slow at first, they rebounded nicely with exceptional salads, BEST CHOWDER, nice oyster selection and KILLER fried clams!

Quite possibly the best oyster and seafood restaurant in Boston. A wide variety of oysters on the menu and a very nice cooked-food selection as well. Nice wine selection. Service was attentive too. Only drawback, with the open kitchen it was extremely warm...sweating warm.... We will come back but probably in winter.
