I have eaten many times there because the food is truly excellent. Service ok, but the place is just a bit sad. You cannot go wrong with the selection: oysters and shrimp divine. Not much experience with the main courses since I normally order 2...More

Corporate casual. You don't need a jacket or tie but definitely no shorts and no t-shirts. Polo shirt and Dockers are fine
