“Cool seafood - come early if you do not have reservation”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Even if you haven't made a reservation in advance - come for early dinner by 5:30pm at you're done! oysters, fresh Maine lobsters - wonderful sets as well. Sushi platters - really I cougn't tell if that's Tsukiji market in Tokyo!!! Sensible wine selection. Waiters just ok but food is great.

“good”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

My parents and I were just walking by and decided to go inside to eat. At first, I was a little iffy about eating from there, but the waiter was pleasant and the food was good. It was the first time that I had oysters and I would eat it again. The lobster mac is good and the creme brulee is awesome.

“Not worth the $$$$”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Nice but somewhat drafty interior. Food is very expensive and mediocre at best. Their wine by the glass selection is very limited and not all that good. We did not try the oysters.
