We dined as a couple and sat outside. The waitress and her trainee assistant were very friendly but the service quality was just adequate. She did not do a good job with explaining the dishes or specials and could have been more prompt with a few misc. items. I concur with other reviews that the portion sizes were generous for the price. The prices are moderate for STL seafood places. My wife's spring salad was nicely presented in a large mason jar with great lemon preserved dressing. My app of mussels in saffron sauce was good but not memorable. The grilled bread was best part. My wife's seared Tuna was the best dish with lots of sushi grade tuna. My cornmeal dusted scallops and shrimp was mixed. Great scallops and overcooked mediocre shrimp. Overall, this worthy of another visit with reasonable prices and generally very good food (some great and some mediocre). Wine list was reasonably priced and cocktails were quite good too.
