I have been here for both lunch and dinner and have always been very pleased. Fresh, creative, and flavorful is why I keep on coming back. I also like that they periodically change their menu. Great place to take visitors to and they take reservations.

This was our last stop on our long weekend trip and it didn't disappoint! They had a wide selection of oysters and they were amazingly fresh and delicious. The octopus salad left us speechless! This is definitely a must visit!

Delicious, almost beyond words. Our server Lia, was astonishingly good, excellent. The food was outstanding. Great oysters, grilled octopus appetizer, and the entree... scallops with grilled avocado, Pork belly and roasted potatoes... I wanted to lick the plate. One of my all time favorite places!

I was solo so just sat at the bar for a light dinner. The place was packed, but the service was great. I had the lobster bisque and a half dozen mixed raw oysters. Everything was fresh and delicious. Definitely going back.
