If i were standing in the north end I'd think of this place. I love this place. Make a reservation. If you don't like seafood and pasta or seafood the selections are limited. The oysters on the half shell from Maine were nothing short of awesome. The chowder is a nice variant but will be too thin for some. Offset... More

Really nice dinner in a place we found by accident. Several had shrimp while others had fried fish or Branzino. All good. Inexpensive wine list and great service.

We had an 8 15 pm reservation. The restaurant was busy and people were waiting. We explained we had a reservation. The lady had become chummy with the groups who were already waiting (without a reservation). She apologized as she seated a group ahead of us. Also, there were others it seemed she was going to seat first. All without... More

If you are looking for fish near Tufts, this is a good spot to try. Disappointed in the fried calamari appetizer which was over cooked. New England clam chowder tasty. Crab cakes not too breaded.Grilled swordfish was on the dry side but side pasta was delicious. Fish and chips well sided with fries. Short wine list but very reasonably priced.... More

Nice menu selection but the fish is especially good. My whole cooked Branzino was perfection. There are tons of restaurants nearby but this is a nice adult choice.

Went there with family for dinner absolutely fantastic Seafood we had steamed mussels, steamed clams, and calamari as an appetizer all of it was five star! 9002 Diablo with lobster that was absolutely out of this world. If you don't visit this place you're missing out.

Went based upon other reviews. We were not disappointed. Good fish, well prepared and good service. The do have a list of specials in addition to the standard menu. Cajun Swordfish is the well-deserved house specialty. The Haddock Stew was very good. Not a fancy place and food comes quickly. Prices are reasonable.

Seafood choices are incredible and fresh! Food has great presentation and taste. The grilled octopus is soft (which is hard to accomplish). Mussels are wonderful! They also have one or two choices for chicken and steak if you come with a person that does not eat seafood. Service is great! They have a lot of seating inside! Prices are reasonable... More

We were looking for some fresh seafood and took a chance on a Saturday night with no reservation, gladly accepting seats at the bar. Staff promptly sat us and laid places with full service, we got our drinks and fresh warm bread and butter - yum! Food arrived promptly and the bartender kindly took a picture for us with our...
