We found this place way overrated by others, found the selection of fish to be mediocre in an area endowed with so much fresh catch coming in each day and were mostly unimpressed by any of the entrees. I had a Portuguese-style fisherman's stew that was pleasant, not anything more than that. My wife had the chowder and it was not at all robust, rather dilute in seasoning and intensity of the lobster broth. An untrained person placed the utensils on our table while holding on to the tines of the fork and blade of the knife so that they would face the right way after putting them down. Not a fatal error, just a bit disappointing again based on the lofty ratings by others.
One pet peeve and it is actually routine in most restaurants, including this one. We are patrons. This word also refers to the expression on our faces as in patronized when a restaurant holding your reservation almost always tries to stick you in the worst seat in the restaurant first, then makes you beg/negotiate to get to a better spot. They assume you are too passive or stupid to react. Maybe restaurateurs get away with this often and reserve the better seats for the wealthier or better known patrons??? It sits poorly with us but is pretty routine. Patrons patronized.
