821 has great fish particularly the seabass and sole. It's a really good place to eat on and off season. The early menu is good and a great value. The regular menu is outstanding and not too pricey.

Price was fair but the food was also a bit middling. Nothing to rave about. Service was efficient, attentive and quick.
