The food here was pretty good but the view was spectacular. We came during happy hour so they had $5 wines which were very good. The risotto was excellent!

We stopped here for a last meal before flying home to the UK. On paper looked great. The staff hadn't got a clue, confusion over menus. Wines on the menu not available. Then running out after two bottles. Courses coming out staggered, I had mine and finished for 10 minutes before the rest of the table. Half of the deserts... More

We came for happy hour a couple times here while staying at the Inn at Oyster Point. They had some snack specials we tried- fish tacos, filet mignon sliders and they were pretty good but not memorable. I would probably rate it average if only based on happy hour fare.

Glad we had reservations they were very busy, that's a good sign. We sat by the window that overlooks the water. Wait staff very pleasant & helpful. We had Fried Calamari excellent! Crispy not greasy and tender good tarter sauce. We had filet sliders which were good too. The menu is pretty good and they do have daily specials. If... More

I was in the city for work. I'm so glad I stopped by here. Came here dying happy hour, the oysters were fresh and delicious. We enjoyed the crab cake sliders. Service was a tad slow, but we were not in a hurry. The views was lovely.

There are some South American specialties, an eclectic mix of entrees, several vegetarian options and some more familiar favorites. The three we sampled were all prepared with fresh ingredients and expertly seasoned. We took a chance and were lucky to get a table as the place was buzzing even at a relatively early hour. The service was prompt and attentive.... More

Wanted some a good seafood dinner and found this place on Yelp. Glad that I called and made a reservation as when we arrived this little place was packed. Looks like it is a popular happy hour spot. It is a bit small and is located in a hotel right on the water so it has nice views. While the... More

Very good service but the Peruvian style cuisine was lacking in some way. Crab cakes and clam chowder made for decent appetizers though.

We ate here while staying at the Inn at Oyster Point. The food doesn't quite lie up to its description on the menu, but it's all right if you just want to relax and not leave the hotel.

We hope that the restaurant was only having an off night or it will not be in business very long. After we left the restaurant, we ran into someone else who had eaten there and had a similar experience, so we know that we were not fussy customers. The staff of the restaurant was friendly and served each course timely... More
