I've wanted to come here for a long time and was finally able to make it on this trip to Seattle. We got there a little before 5 on a Thursday evening and the place was packed. We were quoted a wait time of about 30 minutes but we were able to be seated in about 15 minutes. There were 6 different local varieties of oysters from mild to briny. We took advantage of the 25% happy hour special and got two dozen to split amongst 3. For dinner we got the zuccini salad. A light, delicious, thinly sliced salad of zuccini with a citrus vinaigrette. We also got the cod chowder, smoked trout, and the manila clams. The freshest seafood and all were well prepared. Dessert was a disappointment. We got the bread pudding. It was nothing like we expected. It looked like a slightly toasted piece of bread with some sauce and whipped cream. Overall, the service was friendly and prompt. I'd probably give this place more like a 4 1/2 but I liked it enough to give it a 5.
