“Great experience”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Ate there 2 nights during my time in the area; the first night was with a business partner. Our server was fabulous, great recommendation, prompt service but not over the top. We had a Mahi dish served over a bed of wilted spinach and mashed potatoes, topped with a lemon butter sauce; it melted in your mouth.... Amazing, a bit pricey but expected and well worth it!!

“Great bar, food, atmostphere”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

My salmon was excellent and the mussels were also rumored to be great. I highly recommend the anjou pear cocktail. Very friendly staff and a bar that is hopping with gov contractors. Nice break from the hotel restaurants!

“Not a legendary experience”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Average quality fish with above average prices

Hoped it would have been better after trying local eateries that were better and less costly

“No complaints; but nothing spectacular either.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The food was good and service was as expected. Prices are inflated for average seafood. Good choice for those who don't want to "chance" a non-chain restaurant.
