Worked hard to get a reservation on a Monday night at 8 PM; it was busy, but we were allowed to order the two different multi-course tasting menus (with accompanying wines) which we shared; wonderful.

Had a four course tasting menu with wife. Wife enjoyed 1 of 2 lobster dishes and enjoyed langoustine. I had striped bass, snapper and tuna carpaccio which were all amazing. Great place. Worth the money for a superior seafood experience.
