    Raw clams & oysters not best but decent. Get the $20 sampler. Bread comes with delicious olives & roast garlic. BBC (Belvedere Blue Cheese stuffed olives) excellent and dry. Tuna is tasty but small.

    Had the seated tuna with wasabi sauce. It was an out of body experience. Incredible. Calamari was light, spicy and delicious and waitress KJ directed us perfectly.

    Monkfish is underappreciated! If it's on the fresh catch list, try it with the lobster veloute. (Don't forget to try the mussels too.)

    The halibut with a picatta sauce. Try the tuna with the wasabi aioli. Both were awesome. With mashed potatoes and parsnips. Mmmm

    WOW! Great food, fun atmosphere & fresh food! Love the sauces sampler with scallops. Pricey, but worth it for a girls night dinner birthday celebration.

    Try the Raw Oysters And Little Necks - Great flavors, wish they were fully shucked. Both types were still attached to the shells.
