Streetside is always packed, and the bar will be very happy to serve you an expensive glass or three while you wait for your table to open up; they do not take reservations, and you must be there to claim your slot.
It is a small and somewhat cramped restaurant - part of its appeal - seating perhaps 40 people at a time. There is more space around the table when you get there than you will have felt while waiting at the bar, and the waitstaff will give you an unhurried attention which is welcome after the sharp-elbowed experience you may have just gone through...
The food is worth your investment in time: interesting salads; memorable fish dishes and complimenting sauces; a fine wine list; a limited number of excellent and innovative desserts. I enjoyed whitefish with a lump crab topping (a great mix of delicate flavors), while my companion had sea scallops with Brussels sprouts and a butternut squash risotto: an involving counterpoint of sweet and bitter flavors, and differing textures.
It's worth the waiting.
