We hosted a business dinner here this week and everyone had a blast. Nice wine list and delicious cocktails. Tasty apps especially the calamari the spicy tuna roll. A big selection of fish tacos -- get the grilled mahi with spicy aioli if available. Also there is a great brownie sundae for dessert. The waiters was super friendly and helpful in guiding us toward good choices.

I discovered this place on B St in San Mateo on Sun. June 22nd (2014), walking by during the San Mateo Downtown street festival. I am a fan of IPA (india Pale Ale) and they had one of my favorites on draught. I made mental note of the Mon-Fri 4P-6P Happy Hour and returned on a Tuesday to try some of the Happy Hour menu. Enjoyed a fine mahi-mahi taco and Korean Sticky Ribs with my Sculpin IPA. Found an excellent, friendly bartender in Justin. Will be back!

Only if the service had been better I would have given this nice establishment Five Stars. Maybe next time. But the food is real good. Of course their fish dishes are well balanced with taste texture and flavor. The Spice 8 sushi rolls are worth a try. Nice location in this historic San Mateo next to movie theaters.

This place is perfectly situated for dinner and a movie. We prefer to go early for their Happy Hour. The deconstructed California Roll salad is an interesting and delicious take on a favorite set of flavors. The bar has a nice vibe. The booths and tables are better when you want to carry on longer conversations. I hope they continue with the quality of food and service. Nice reception staff greet you with a smile and a warm welcome. It's wonderful to find a restaurant that is well managed.

We tried some seafood with beer. Crab is tasty and beef is also great. And some music. Good place for friends
