Small seafood restaurant, reservations a must. With bar seating holds about 55 people. Food is very good and offers a nice selection of fish. Seafood and pasta is a must called fruits of the sea. Also yellow tail tuna was very good. Not a place to spend an evening, to noisy. However the food is very good. Full bar and... More

We sat outside on a warm night and had a great waitress--professional, smiling, and fast. One of us had scallops and shrimp and risotto in a rich coconut curry sauce (like super Thai). The other had the fish chowder (tomato broth; delish) and the appetizer J & J Seafood Trio: shrimp, scallops and crab cake with roasted beet and white... More

Forever grateful to the hotel staff member who recommended this place for seafood ... walked in as things were getting busy, sat at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed our delicious dinner. One Branzino -- perfectly grilled, one sweet potato coated snapper -- deliciously meaty and tender and tasty ... will try to get there whenever we are in the area.

This place gets crowded! We sat outside in front of the window where the specials were posted and had people hovering over our table to read it throughout our meal. Server refused to ask the kitchen to put the cole slaw that came on a separate plate, telling us "the kitchen won't do it. You have to have it on... More

The seafood melange... the grilled choices... the mussels...the salads... the dessert of key lime pie. Everything came together vis-a-vis service.. food. ambiance... and price. We... More

We ordered a baked bronzing (whole fish, not filleted), it was fabulous. We went back for more. Our friends also ordered mixed seafood dishes and they all loved what they got, so I have to say, it is excellent food. Beware: you need a reservation even on weekdays or you may have to sit at the bar or outside. Not... More

Although we were not able to secure a reservation on the evening we went there, sitting and dining at the bar proved very enjoyable. The service and food could not be beat. We enjoyed our dinner very much - appetizers and mains were so fresh and well-prepared. This restaurant deserves many accolades. Although the ambience is spare, the quality of... More

Have walked by this restaurant for years now and decided to give it a try based on solid reviews. Reservations (phone only, argh) are a must as I booked a day ahead in mid-week and got the kitchen door table -- and the small place filled up fast. Shared a shrimp cocktail with my wife and they were good, but... More
