The service and food was so good. Our server Dominique was very accommodating and courteous. I thought it to be a very special touch everyone mentioned Happy Anniversary & our waitress went above and beyond she even took our picture at the entrance ❤️.

We had late reservations but you’d have never known. The food was perfectly cooked, the waiter didn’t rush us at all, and it was one of the best dates we’d had in a long time. We had the oysters on the half shell and chicken dinner. It was a fabulous night.

Didn’t like the small table for two but the service was excellent. We had the Halibut special, scallops and the ribeye steak, The seafood was delicious and the steak was a perfect medium rare but had a little bit of an odd flavor. We enjoyed the meal and would certainly try it again when in town.

The food is okay/good - nothing exceptional but fun environment. I do think it’s much too expensive for nothing I’ll recommend to others. Service was great.

The selection of fresh oysters was excellent, they were presented beautifully, icy cold, the martinis were quite good but a tad small. the waitstaff, in fact the entire staff we interacted with, were gracious and efficient, without being obsequious. The menu was inventive. It was our first experience at this restaurant, and we have promised ourselves to frequent them often.
The most important fact for us, is to finally find a restaurant in the CSRA that serves REALLY good raw oysters!

Oysters- great (why we go...raw preferred). Beet Salad/Beet Small Plate-outstanding.....Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding with Wild Turkey sauce- wonderful...love emphasis on fish / seafood. Several years ago got the best steak I have ever eaten (flavor wise) there. Bar exceptional too.
....and let's not forget the staff.....Massive KUDOS to staff!!! My fave for the CSRA with Frog Hollow a close second. Oysters carry the day!

This chef has great ideas! The Oysters with the Harissa and jalapeno sauce were some of the best I have ever eaten. The entire menu is well though out and executed. Superb and professional wait staff made the evening an event no just a meal. I would invite friends to dine with me there.

The food was amazing as always. The drinks are always lovely as well. I especially love to sit at The hightops in the bar area. Make sure to pay attention to the daily specials as they are very yummy. They also have happy hour every day from 5 to 7 PM.
