We knew nothing about this restaurant except that it was #2 in seafood restaurants in OC, according to TripAdvisor. We did not have a reservation, and found the best tables were all reserved. They seated us under a giant ceiling fan, which was uncomfortable. We...More

May be you have to wait, but while waiting you can drink outside, with a great view. Service is very nice. The menu it is not long but it is big on flavor.

We have eaten here three times with friends. The menu is always fresh with notations of the ingredients origins which are locally sourced. Choosing my meal is a challenge since it is all so good! Wine choices are very good and desserts are too!

The food here is a near miss. All of the seafood is fresh and well prepared. The ocean views and ambiance are great, and the service is attentive and professional. Beyond that, things are a bit disappointing. The crab soup has little flavor, tasting like...More

We write our menu twice daily based on what's fresh and available. The majority of our ingredients are sourced locally so we never know what we're going to have on hand. The beauty of that is we always have a seasonally... More

real food * from scratch We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference.
