Service and food fabulous. BYOB. Slightly noisy for conversation. Small restaurant so be sure to make a reservation. Seafood is very fresh and delicious. Some land lover options.

I loved my meal and so did the other couples we went with. We all felt like we had to yell at each other to converse because it was so loud in the crowded small room. If food is the focus of your outing go there. If quiet conversation and catching up with friends is your objective, don't go.

We went here on a Saturday night, reservation was for 7:30. We were not seated until after 8 pm. The din in the dining room was nearly unbearable. We had to shout to hear one another, and of course that's what everyone was doing, which is why it was so loud! But the acoustics of the place exacerbated it -... More

We made reservations for 2, arrived to only sit there for 45 minutes waiting. Evidently there was NO seating for 2 in the entire restaurant. Only seating for large groups of people were available. We have never had a problem waiting this long for a table. When we were finally seated we were crammed into a corner that you could... More

This is my fourth time here and the food hasn't disappointed yet, except for the octopus that seemed to have been left on the grill for a tad too long. The food is fresh and the selection is wide. It's also BYOB. If you're coming on the weekend make sure you get a reservation as it does get pretty crowded... More
