“Very busy restaurant with excellent range of fresh fish and shell fish”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Based upon the quality of the fresh fish and waiter knowledge of the produce and cooking options, this is a good place to eat and enjoy seafood. The service was also excellent as was the wine list, all reasonably priced.

Regrettably we would never eat here again, as in our opinion the customer rest rooms and adjoining BOH area were not only inadequate, but also filthy when we visited. If just a small amount of this attitude to cleanliness and hygiene gets passed over into the kitchen we would be very worried.

“Top shelf seafood experience in SOHO”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Had a fantastic business dinner last night with colleagues. Fantastic fresh oysters and expertly prepared fish. Everyone loved the meal. Very good wine list with some very well priced bottles that won't break your bank. Service was perfect. It's not Le Bernadin but then again it doesn't pretend or try to be. Will absolutely go back again. Really great.

“Always elicits Wows!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I don't know where they get these giant yet deliciously scrumptious and juicy giant clams but they are shockingly consistent, and fortunately don't have a viagra effect the Chinese know about who have extinctified all of the giant clams in the Coral Sea because of their supposed erectile qualities. 24 Different kinds of Oysters pretty much every day. Sensational fresh baked focaccio and a reasonably priced excellent wine list. And the rest of the menu is persistently great also. Terrific service. Slightly noisy, but conversation fades when the food is served except for diners saying, "This is wonderful." I've brought friends from out of town there and they always want to go back, but space is sometimes a problem so make a reservation if you can.

“Fantastic seafood - top notch service”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Parking is tough in the area, but you can park on the street for free, after 6 pm. Worth it!

Great appetizers were mussel soup (had never tried this - GREAT). Warm octopus salad was very tender & tasty. Would order either one again.

Halibut, Bronzino and scallops were all first class - superbly cooked & seasoned.

Dessert were OK - mocca tiramisu was just OK; blueberry pie with ice cream was well worth eating.

Not inexpensive, but very reasonable

On a personal note, lines for the rest room might be long - only one stall for each
