Food was excellent.. beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. A little on the pricey side but worth it if you... More

Went early (6:30) My impression is that it gets a fair bit busier so being early we got lots of attention. Staff is wonderful. Food was excellent.

Been here a few times. And now that we have a little one, it is hard to find a place where you can go. Great food, well presented and good quality. Service sometimes great, sometimes ok. But overall, great place to go for fish.
