All in all, it was a good dining experience. We arrived an hour hourly but were allowed to dine earlier which was nice of them to do since the place was packed!
The service was excellent and almost everything we ate was good and generous in portion size. One thing we did not like was the uni appetizer which was bland, expensive and miniscule in size (compared to other places where we've had it).

This place is so beautiful with views of the ocean. The food is just as great. This is a pricey upscale restaurant, but it is a must try!! Our server Shannon was the best!! Lobster was wonderful, king crab was great, and the filet mignon was just right!! So good that we're thinking about going again while in town!!

We loved the platters - exceptional seafood. The desert we ordered was an apple tart with ice cream - after such a big main meal we just shared the desert and it topped off a great night out.

We called here for dinner last night . The restaurant looked very nice and was busy but it soon became obvious that it was pack them in tight and get them out quick attitude . We started with mussels which were overcooked and literally as the plates were cleared from one side the mains were served from the other . The bill with wine was over $100 dollars which we felt was very expensive for the experience we had . In our opinion there are far better places to eat .

The lunch we had here was rally good, the menu is full of fresh seafood, the service is friendly and timely, the wine list is extensive so all in all a place to recommend, most especially for its wide range of oysters.
