“Great Food - Exceptionally Busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Ate dinner here with a party of five. Service was exceptional - attentive, and fast. The seafood was excellent (if pricy), and there was a good variety on the menu. The place was packed, and exceptionally noisy, so not a location for a quiet or romantic dinner.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

I ate here twice. The first time I had crab tempura and a seafood broth and it was superb. I also had a steak brunch which was delicious and very reasonably priced. Watch out for recommended wine as its pricey. All in all it was excellent.

“Awesome food.. Even better service...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

The old world charm with a flair for awesome food and the epitome of customer service is how I see this place... Always going back and recommending... Lobster rolls and Halibut and chips are to die for... We were served by Jeniffer and we even got a thank you card from them... How cool is that... Kudos guys...
