My wife daughter and granddaughter enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Sushi was fresh and well prepared. Likewise for the octopus appetizer. The snapper special was delicious as was the scallop dish. Best of all were the fresh flavorful oysters. We enjoyed 6 different varieties shucked just before being served.

He understood when to check for fresh drinks, great job on explaining the specials, engaged in personal conversation, despite the busy crowd and checked to see if we were satisfied. Food was very good the wine... More

We went there for a happy hour cocktails, and ended up ordering small plates of food off the happy hour menu. Four of us shared 6 choices, and it was more than enough food, at half the price of regular menu. The portions are smaller, but more than adequate. I highly recommend the Margarita Pizza and Shrimp Cocktail. The shrimp... More

My wife and I had dinner reservations for 7P (highly recommend reservations). However, we arrived early and were immediately welcomed by a bar tender that saw us two deep waiting to order a drink. He let us know a couple of seats were about to open. From that point on we cancelled our reservations and ate at the bar. We... More

Arrived after happy hour, and despite a busy downtown with people everywhere, got a table on a Thursday Night. Drinks were $12 for a Margarita, $6 for Stella beer. I ordered a salmon medium rare, and got what I ordered. It was quite delicious. Friends were pleased with their meal. Took a little longer than expected given that the restaurant... More

The regular food was pretty food but the key lime pie was out of the world. Sooooo delectable. I would also recommend the shells and cheese with goldfish breadcrumbs off the happy hour menu. Great service too!

We went for a light dinner and happy hour. We ordered the happy hour specials which were really tasty. The ribs were fall off the bone with delicious sauce. And the fish tacos were very good. We got one order fried and the other grilled. Both came with slaw on top and avocado sauce. We sat outside on the sidewalk... More
