    Disappointing... The food had no seasoning whatsoever. Seriously, bland meatloaf and bland tomato sauce?

    Amazing place. Strong cocktails, the swordfish skewers with lobster and spinach risotto was beyond amazing. And there's Boston sports on at the bar. Nothing better.

    I got the special which was Blackfish with Lobster Risotto finished with saffron butter. Delicious!!

    The lamb shank is fall-off-the-bone melt-in-your-mouth delicious! And such a HUGE portion size! Substituting in lobster mash is an extra $4, but completely worth it!

    Come just after opening. It's pretty much deserted and you get seated right away. Also, the beet salad with goat's cheese is amazing!

    Lobster mash was so off the charts!!! Swordfish was tender and not too oily. Martinis flow and flow and flow

    Ask for the Gluten Free Menu! What a wonderful selection of items. Wonderful service, delicious meal, lovely atmosphere! Swordfish could have been a bit thicker, but delish in taste!

    Food is amazing here, no matter what you get but when I tried lobster mashed potatoes, I think my heart skipped a beat. I've never eaten mashed potatoes that were that wicked good!

    Try the Spicy Chocolate Cake - This is incredible. It's nice and sweet and moist with just the right amount of heat coming through without being overbearing.

    Delicious, definitely get the wood grilled steak. Unfortunate that the lobster tail was only half of one as well as a bit skimpy.

    Gorgeous place w outdoor seating. Food was well done, hot and a great selection. Fully enjoyed our dinner but the prices will keep this in the special occasion category.

    Wood-grilled calamari (with arugula, capers, sun-dried tomatoes) is perfection! Not to mention there's no beating the water view and fireplace on the outdoor patio...

    The good is really good-the service that we had was below subpar. The cumin scented sweet potatoes were out of this world! I'd go again with hopes that the next server was better.
