    Lobster roll is amaze. Soft buttery roll with a light crisp. Compact and seasoned to perfection. Share this and a bowl of the chowder - they'll split it and make it for two.

    A fine wine selection. We had a Chateau Montelena Chardonnay (2012) with dinner. An outstanding combination!

    Well, as one of the three restaurants in Los Angeles that sells Whole Belly, fried Ipswich Clams! They have another New England favorite: The Lobster Roll. Both are excellent! Oyster selection superb!

    Red curry mussels were great, king crab legs not so much.

    The linguine and clams is fantastic, and be sure to get the key lime pie, even if you don't like key lime pie. It's so good, my mom (who hates key lime pie) really liked it! Service is great too!

    Limited vegetarian options: grilled artichoke, simple salads, a do it yourself rice bowl of coconut brown rice + Brussel sprouts + cocktail sauce.

    Delicious food but a tad expensive. Also small space and at times we felt rushed to make decisions.

    Sit outside and ask your waiter to put together a sampler of oysters to amuse your bouche. Don't fill up on appeteasers though - save room for the lobster roll, your taste buds will heart you for it.
