We visited for the first time during Happy Hour. Their oyster selection is impressive - east coast, west coast and Canada. We will definitely do it again!

My husband surprised me with a Spa day and date night to this restaurant. Cocktails - lemon drop and Moscow mike were excellent. Price was very reasonable. They had gluten free vodka (Copain, Titos) which was awesome! Service - it was busy so it was slow as expected. Waiter was knowledgeable about gluten free. Food quality - oysters were fresh... More

The oysters were wonderful, the wine delicious, the tuna and snapper absolutely perfect and the bok-choy-shiitake stir fry was crunchy and squidgy and salty and excellent. Sadly, we arrived to be greeted by a flustered and shouty hostess who pretty much arm-wrestled us into a seat at... More

Great atmosphere! We loved it! Great food and cocktails! I had the Stormy River and the Snapper filet. The smoked cauliflower was to die for! Also, the service was top notch!
