We had lobster bisque (phenomenal with lots of lobster) and the wagyu beef and Australian lobster. It was paired with lobster mashed potatoes and asparagus. Great service and I highly recommend.

This place is phenomenal. The oysters were perfect. The scallops were delectable. And the Japanese Miyazaki A9 wagyu steak melted in my mouth. Their moscato wine was also delicious. Great staff. Very professional. I’m super impressed.
