Sad to say something bad about this cute little bar...I have to agree with a previous reviewer. This bartender/owner has such attitude. Was super negative about the other places we eat almost making us feel like idiots for paying what we did to eat there....More

Oysters were delicious! So fresh & meaty! Atmosphere was cozy & chic. I wanted to eat here everyday on my trip. Be prepared to splurge for the champagne.

The reviews that talk about the owner being salty are spot on. The guy is down right rude. In fact, on the day we visited he over-heard me mention to the bartender that TripAdvisor had the place listed as "closed" and his reply to me...More
