    The oysters, tuna tartare, lobster curry (pictured below), yellowfin tuna, and squid ink pasta were all fantastic, as was the service. Highly recommend this place to lovers of good wine and seafood.

    I enjoyed the seafood here. Had an exceptionally knowledgeable server. Upstairs is quieter

    Didn't think the lobster curry was that good, but my husband liked it? The salmon is really good. Also, the roasted beets they serve the fish with is insaaane. This is coming from a non-beet eater.

    Fluke ceviche! Amazing.

    Tuna confit with salami, asparagus on focaccia bread sounds better than it is. Literally dripping with oil, the Tuna is suspiciously similar to the kind that comes in cans. Overpriced and overrated.

    The food is just okay, but you can't beat the dollar oysters and half priced bottles of sparkling wine during happy hour!

    For best results get the Swordfish but ask for it plated like the scallops. Tomatillo salsa and roasted corn. AMAZING!

    $1 oysters for HH and the best tuna sandwich (confit, of course) in the city. Other menu musts: scallop crudo & lobster curry are packed with flavor. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check!

    Escarole caesar. Do it. One of the best salads I have ever had. Chips for the croutons. It was amaze balls. And the parsnip was a great addition against the escarole.

    Best oysters ever, get one of each for yourself and yourself alone.

    Check your bill before you pay. They put a $50 gratuity on my (originally) $127 bill and then proceed to give me an attitude when I asked about it.

    They still seem to be working out the service at lunch but the food was good. Fish tacos were a bit bland but good portion size. Ceviche yummy but small portion. Burger looked amazing!

    Delicious food, drinks, and bartenders :) Yogurt-Marinated Atlantic Halibut was very unique and tasty!! We also had Oysters with homemade sauces and Plancha Grilled Octopus. All amazing.
