“Really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Fresh fish, good service, not wild about the fish decor in the dome. Seemed a little cheesy for a fine dining experience.

“Funkytastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Went for dinner with my wife and a couple colleagues. Was sat very promptly and our server greeted us. Menu has something for everyone, with a nice portion for the price. The Tuna was awesome, from presentation to taste. Everyone else enjoyed a great meal as well. Will definitely go back

“Much More Than Funky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

A newspaper article about this place and it's tuna entree, in particular, coupled with a review of the menu on line, caused us to try it. It's a bit out of the way (Daniels & #75 area) and hidden in a strip center but the oceanic decore is beautiful and, coupled with the very tasteful but interesting music, gives the place great ambiance. It is, however, rather large so without many people it was a bit strange but quiete.

The service was a bit erratic at first and our server had difficulty explaining the rather exotic entrees except to say they were all fabulous; which they were. For most of the time the service was good and appropriately attentive.

The menu features seafood but other dishes were available also. There were a lot of very interesting choices including some specials. I opted for a seared tuna special and my wife got the Mahi from the menu. They were both some of the best meals we have had in years. This place has someone in the kitchen who is very talented. The house wine was adequate.

The most surprising aspect of this restraunt is that the prices are very reasonable. Hence, this is not only a good place for special occasions but is affordable for normal dining.

We will definitely go back to try some of the other dishes on the menu. Also, we are looking forward to trying their happy hour drinks and interesting appetizers in the bar some night, where the music is located.

This is definitely a must try place.

“Ok food / worth a try if in the area/ live nice music”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Went with 5 people. Bar was nice quick and a good drink. 2 piece combo music was great. Server was clueless. Waited to get served water when requested twice / drinks were slow in getting to the table / had to ask another server to see where the drinks were. Food was good. Apps were well done and flavorful/. Fish was fresh and nicely prepared. A bit heavy on cheese sauces but good. Salad was very good ( Caesar) and house was good too. Nice seating for a drink outside too.
