We went here on a Sunday evening around 6:30 and were seated right away. The food was very fresh and innovative. Our waiter was very helpful with good recommendations on the menu. Wonderful fresh fish.

Did Frieda's offer a special menu less expensive than their normal menu for your Monday night dinner? They used to have a less expensive menu Monday nights.
