I ordered a salty, briny, and buttery oysters to try them out. I really could taste the difference. The presentation was excellent. It was easy to tell which was which. The clam soup and deserts were also top notch. Great experience!

I enjoyed this restaurant. Seafood was great. It over looked the water. Service was very good. It was near Inner Harbor. You could walk to Inner Harbor or take a Water Taxi or Cab. Restaurant was located in Fells Point. Great area of Baltimore.

Really enjoyed this place. Small but good atmosphere and appetizers were delicious... Had the escargot and 2 different kind of oysters. Very good.

Ordered an appetizer and soup for a late lunch. It was hard to choose among the offerings. If you like spicy Amarillo sauce (which is spicy and has a lot of cilantro) try the ceviche mixto that contains octopus, wahoo and lobster. The oyster selection is amazing and they looked good. I just don't care for oysters.

This place is the best, the Oysters are fantastic and dozens of kinds from all over. The staff is very knowledgeable and can select an oyster for your tastes. Similar to selecting a wine. We sat at the bar and had a few beers, oysters and calamari. The calamari is some of the best I have ever had, and that... More

Two weeks ago I took a friend and we drove to Baltimore for an early lunch one sunny day. I called ahead for reservations in this tiny restaurant that offers a spectacular à la carte raw bar, featuring at least ten different kinds of oysters daily. No reservations were available but the maitre'd told me that they set aside 4... More

We headed in on a very busy Friday not expecting a table. We were told the dining room was full, but we could sit in the bar if something opened. We ordered drinks and were then told a table was available! Our server was fantastic. The cocktails were amazing. The oysters, salad and ceviche were outstanding! Our main course was... More

This was our "Special" night out. Casual, Fells Point restaurant, with an incredible raw bar selection. Oysters and clams were fresh, and salty and I am going crazy thinking about them right now! We called over a week in advance and could not get the reservation time we wanted. The restaurant was small, but seating not too close. Wonderful. One... More

I had dinner here last night with two friends. You'll need to make reservations if you are going on a busy weekend. We wanted to go Wednesday night, but they were booked. We took the Thursday night 6 pm reservation. Parking is tough, so allow time. Ask for the second floor as the first is tight and arriving guest stand... More
