New owners, experienced local restauranteurs, have retained strengths of the original concept, but streamlined menu to clear focus. Any fish dish is likely to satisfy here. Tonight, I had the fish plate (w/ a crab cake, swordfish, and shrimp), rounded out with nice big pile...More

Certainly, we enjoyed the fried calamari; the outside was crisp, the inside soft and the lemon aoli was bright; the mussels were also above par, as was the fresh, warm apple pie ala mode. However, there is a large imbalance caused by a scanty, overworked...More
