Intimate restaurant in Brewster - few tables. Very high service. Terrific menu. Clear distinctive flavors accentuate fresh seafood. We had the charred octopus - tender, smoky, clean - the steak tartare deviled eggs - spicy, complex - lobster - rich, seasoned, balanced - cod with crab cake - crisp, light - and the best oysters I've had. Friendly, knowledgeable wait staff. Absolutely delicious sea food. We were lucky - walked in Saturday night at 9pm and got a table immediately. Just a great experience.

Great service, wine list, and food. The seafood is very fresh and very well prepared and presented. The restaurant is small so be prepared to wait outside with a great glass of wine.

We were expecting a bit of wait but it turned out out to be longer than expected and the only place to sit was outside which at 9.00pm was getting decidedly cool. We ordered drinks from the slightly grumpy bar tender and had to stump up for these immediately (presumably they've been stung by disgruntled waiting diners leaving without paying for their drinks).
Although the very pleasant lady at front of house does a good job of creating a good atmosphere the same can't be said of her colleagues. The place would be times better if they all took a leaf out of her book. There was still a good wait even after we were seated at our table.
All of the above and the clear desire of the servers to pack up and go home detracted from the generally well prepared dishes. My swordfish steak was very fresh and well cooked but steer clear of the gnocchi.
Overall a disappointing experience given the previous reviews and the lengthy build up.

The reviews are spot on, dinner was fantastic. Wait staff were prompt not over bearing, very attentive to my unusual allergy, wine suggestions perfect! We ordered the scallops and scrod, the food presentation was superb, the taste incredible - need I say more? Absolutely worth coming off the beach early to be there at 5!
