I've been there twice when in SD, and wasn't desapointed, the food is great, fresh and very well done. The oysters were superb, with many choices from different sources. The staff could reccomend delicious local wines to pair the food. Good times for sure!

This place was awesome. Each of our servers was friendly, knowledgeable and quick. It is hard for me to order sometimes due to the way I eat but WOW...I had the quinoa salad, flavour galore. The broccoli, perfectly cooked. And, yes I was hungry, cauliflower....More
