We had some family come in from out of town & we decided to bring them here because they love good fish. The waitress was excellent & was able to answer any questions. She was also very knowledgeable in regards to the wine list. The food was outstanding. It was a very enjoyable & memorable evening!

Great food but no attention to detail this particular evening. That has not been our experience in the past. Furnishings are extremely worn. One of our favorite restaurants and can’t find better seafood in Tulsa however it is starting to lose its charm.

As always the food is delicious! The waiting staff is to par. The only issue was the heirloom tomato salad , it was not that great which was confusing coming from a restaurant of this caliber.

I did not know that there was daily menus. I also did not know that the lunch menu, and dinner menu differ vastly. For a Cajun flair, stop in for lunch. For a fine dining experience, stop in for dinner. Neither will disappoint.

Impeccable seafood as always and top-notch seafood and service!! Long crab legs and sea bass are our all time favorites. Staff is extremely knowledgeable and able to answer questions regarding preparation. Will definitely be back. Only suggestion, maybe update the look/decor. It's looked the same way for over the past 15 years. Would love a more modern/cozy look.

We were greeted with “Happy Anniversery”, immediately led to our table, and greeted again at out table. What a delicious meal. Fresh sweet oysters, followed by the greatest scallops I have ever had. My wife started with a memorable shrimp cocktail with 5 plump shrimp, a garden salads, and then a nice succulent 1 pound lobster tail, tender and sweet. We also really enjoyed the homemade bread, and that may be the reason we couldn’t finish our entrees. I thought it odd that they served salted butter with the bread - we would have preferred sweet butter. An excellent meal which I will remember forever!

We reserved a table for 4 guests on Feb 15. It was Chinese new year (we are Chinese), but we went there mainly because my roommate's girlfriend came a long way from California, so we want a fine place for dinner.
I only toke two pictures: the seabass and crab cake. I really love this crab cakes since the sauce is spicy. Recommend! The sea bass is just above average.
I cannot eat a dessert right after the meal, but we got four free cakes in a to go box! And it's good .

Amazing... all I can say. This place scared me to be honest, never been to a restaurant like it and was not sure what to expect. With in 10 min I had no worries left, and as the night went of I just was blown away amazing service from the server and food was great! Paid more on that one meal then I ever thought I would spend but with the service amount and quality I received. I would do it again.

For how early I booked our reservation; I booked for Valentine’s Day at the end of November. We were sat at a small table in the middle of the restaurant. We are both over 6 foot tall, so our legs hit each other when we are sat at such a small table. Most of the booths were empty at this time.

Incomparable in every way. From fresh sourdough with salted butter to fresh oysters to smoked paprika encrusted salmon atop king crab risotto. Sublime, with service to match.
