    Unless you are a mega-eater, no need to get the Big Daddy raw bar tower if it's just you and like one other person. Order the Dingy instead. They'll throw some oysters in. The food here rocks btw.

    The best restaurant in Reston Town Center is also one of Washington’s best seafood palaces. The kitchen does well with raw-bar towers, sushi rolls, and an atlas’s worth of appetizers and entrées.

    Tried the Peruvian Ceviche, Salmon Torpedo Roll, Japanese Spider Roll and Whole Crispy Flounder. All amazing. The Whole Flounder is a MUST try. Nice ambience and on point service from staff.

    Just go with whatever the waiter recommends. The clam chowder was very delicious. I chose swordfish charcoal grilled. It was half cooked, tasted like rubber.

    "The [crabcakes] rest on a chipotle-spiked slaw, crunchy and snappy and any extra dressing can be used for the basket of sweet potato fries served alongside." - November 2012 Issue

    The crispy flounder and crab cakes are great! All the sushi was delicious, but a bit of a heavy hand with the siracha sauce on the firecracker roll.

    The crab and corn soup is beautiful, cold lobster rolls didn't like it especially for the mayo-like sauce.. The donut dessert is good and more of Egyptian style like Zalabia. :)

    Surprise, surprise seafood is solid here. Prices a on the high side (eg Chilean sea bass for $40 but was def more than 8oz). A bit stuffy upstairs - stay downstairs.

    Amazing service. I don't eat sushi anywhere else. Try rock and roll or passion. The signature dish red thai curry lobster claypot is to die for. Half priced bottle of wine night every monday!

    Don't order the seared ahi tuna unless you like undercooked fish. The outside is cooked and delicious, the inside is VERY rare - but also delicious if you like it that way.

    The Captain Crunch roll has a silly name, but it was terrific...as was the rest of their sushi. Glad I was willing to overlook the goofy name and give it a try.

    The Red Thai curry lobster is listed as one of the best dishes in Washingtonian's 100 Best Restaurants. Ask for a spoon so you can enjoy every bit of the sauce.

    Don't go here looking for shellfish, the only option they have is from their raw bar (chilled) unless you want it weighted down in spices and other flavors. The martinis are great though!

    Menu looked great... But almost everything failed to live up to its description. Ceviche was watery, raw oysters were tiny, Moscow mule was watery. Expensive and uninspiring. I won't go back.
