    Get ready for high quality delicious seafood. This restaurant strives for perfection . We had the fresh oysters , calamari , tuna tartare , monkfish , house fave crab crusted haddock, hot lobster roll, fresh catch swordfish… all were superb. Our waiter Randy was knowledgeable and friendly. He steered us in the right direction with our choices ! Very attentive staff as well. Would go back in a heart beat !!! It was my Moms 80th and she was treated like a queen with a special dessert as well !!!

    Very slow. Have to wait more than 2.5 hours for main courses but when they came it end up with burnt lamp rips. Other food was just ok. Don't recommend. Waste your time.

    I had the fried clams. They were poorly cooked with several clams clumped together and greasy. They should have been dropped into the fat to fry separately and then served spread out instead of a greasy bag. How disappointing.

    Do not dine outside as you will be swarmed by bees. Apparently our waiter was aware that bees could be a nuisance at this restaurant but the restaurant does not give full disclosure. It would have been nice to have known. Food is good, but I would recommend dining indoors unless you you enjoy bees buzzing on your food and drinks. Bring an epi pen if you are allergic to bees.

    This will become a regular stop for my wife and I when we come to Boston. Very professional staff, food was amazing and we never felt rushed to finish and leave. While I normally try and find value restaurants to eat at, this one was worth the fairly high prices they charge. I will be back again the next time in Boston.

    The food was excellent but overpriced. We live in Boston and there are many great seafood restaurants that are less expensive. Apparently the kitchen was very backed up - we waited nearly an hour after ordering before our order arrived. To be clear, we arrived for our 6:45 reservation on time, were seated about 5 minutes later, ordered at around 7, were served at about 8, and left at 9. This was on a Sunday night which we were surprised about. I can't imagine what it's like on a Saturday night! The restaurant was quite noisy. The waitstaff has perfected the art of going past you without looking at you. Our waiter was nice enough but never came back to give us information on how long he thought it would take for our order to come out and he did not check back with us after our food was brought by an assistant. A couple of times when we needed something the only way to get someone's attention as they passed by was to say "excuse me" in a louder tone of voice than I would normally use. We had a gift card and we were celebrating my birthday. We wanted to stay and have dessert but it took so long to get the food we ordered that we just decided to leave.

    Very rushed experience, which I think is down to the wait person we had, as we’ve had a more relaxed experience in the past. Ambience is loud and a bit tight, but not out of the norm for Boston downtown.

    Great time. Love the ambiance. Food was also good. Lobster cocktail, chowder, steamer, sea bass, and swordfish were great. Bouillabaisse was slightly salty for my taste. Pork chop was a little dry. Overall great dinner!

    I am visiting Boston and wanted a good seafood place to take our friends to dinner for their anniversary. We were given a table at the door, which was not being used when we came in and which was made up after a 15 minute wait in our reservation and even though I was initially told our table was finishing up. It was like a last minute decision to use that table. It was also very noisy. It took forever to get someone to come take our order. At least 20 minutes. We had to ask the hostess to get our waiter. When we finally ordered our food, it took at least another 25 minutes for the food to come out. Food was bland and not hot. Sides were room temp. I had the halibut and husband had the bronzino. It was just ok. There is no parking and it cost $25 to valet.I would not recommend this restaurant.

    I had paella, they did not have the staff to prep for a seafood platter , it was $$82 and horrible ,it was mixed poorly some dry rice with no seasonings it needed a very good stir, the waiter was so nice it was busy but$82. so we did not complain, I have had brunch , dinners and was always happy. I would like my money back I am sure that won't happen blame it on covid. that meal was unacceptable and you must know tell the chef please. busy is no excuse especially when you charged top prices. take it off the menu the you you are going to deliver poor quality for $82.
