Excellent seafood restaurant. Calamari appetizer was great and we shared. Entrees were excellent especially if you try the crab and salmon it is on expensive side but worth the $$$ Definitely going back

Best Oysters in area. Freshest seafood in area. No need to travel to Tomales Bay or San Francisco to enjoy

The best seafood in Walnut Creek; way better than Scott’s or even the new Pacific Catch. Great service too. Great menu selection. Our go-to place for seafood in WC if we don’t want to drive to Cap’t Jacks in Benicia.

Read the rave reviews about the fresh seafood, which didn't disappoint. The ambiance, however, is another story. Cramped tables, noisy acoustics, loud diners shouting, not the place for a romantic Saturday dinner. We won't return for a Saturday night date, but maybe for a mid-week...More

From top to bottom this was a high-quality meal. White linen, pretty (and spotless) silver, and a well-informed waiter who offered opinions when asked, and who had a sense of humor. Every dish we received was well-portioned, thoughtfully prepared, and tasted good. Service was perfect....More

There is only street parking. The menu was dated so I assume that they change it every day based on the fresh fish available. I think that they had Dungeness crab but the season is very short so check with the restaurant... More
