    This is yet another addition to David Burke’s culinary empire, though the first to focus on seafood. We can’t help but be charmed by the complicated dishes, vivid colors, and wacky art installations. Read more

    Great food, great service. Sit downstairs-good energy. Request Jessica as your server. Get the Angry Tails appetizer & the taco special. Get a glass of Provocateur wine. Even the patrons are friendly.

    Either dine downstairs in the casual bar area or upstairs in the more refined dining room/outdoor patio. Any of the lobster dishes are phenomenal but we have a soft spot for the lobster bisque.

    Amazing cocktails, mussels, swordfish, monkfish, tuna, salmon, crab, lobster mac & cheese, and then dessert. Impeccable service. Huge portions. Becoming part of the rotation.

    Smoked pastrami Salmon as appetizer, Scottish Salmon and coconut cream brûlée are excellent! Definitely coming back!

    We whole-heartedly recommend the Montauk Lobster Roll - the spiced mayo really gives this Lobster Roll a special kick! And DON’T skip dessert.

    Both avant-garde and approachable, David Burke's take on seafood is nothing short of brilliant. Try the tacos, and don't skip dessert!

    Get the mussels for the first entree on the #nyrw menu. Were great on their own. No need for the sauce it came with! Enjoy

    This place is great. Love the fish tacos and raw bar. Simply grilled fish with one of their delicious sauces is the way to go!

    Their specialty desert: cheesecake lollipops are awesome. I'm not a fan of the bubblegum flavored whipped cream though.

    Basically... the only thing good here is the jalepeno cornbread. Food sucked, service sucked, overcharged... Abysmal. Avoid.
