My wife chose this place, and it was just, meh. We had dinner around 7pm on a Saturday night, the place wasn't overly crowded, but our waitress wasn't very good. We had a very simple order (two lobster rolls), but we wondered if they had gone out to catch the lobster fresh since it took so long. Upon tasting our food, we both remarked that we'd had better lobster rolls, but this was an experience.

The service was great and the staff was very professional and accommodating. I enjoyed my appetizer (crab cakes ) , surf n tuff and my drinks. However my dining partner was no please with his pasta dish. The dish was supposed to be spicy... not. On a positive note, they have great happy hour specials from 5-8pm and you will receive 5% discount on your bill, when you pay with cash.

The oysters we had were flavorless and probably frozen. My partner suffered bad pains for them on the New Year's Eve, which is never a good thing to do.

A bit pricey for the amount of food. The boil was surprisingly very tasty but barely enough for two people. I didn't like the sauce on the lobster roll. The fries were good! The host told us about happy hour but then the waitress told us there was no happy hour. Service was a bit slow.

Went for a late dinner the other night. Had a friendly, attentive waitress. The three of us didn't actually do the "boil" but had Cajun items too (my friends liked the Jumbayala; the etoufee was okay). My friend asked for a stronger martini after they brought the first one and they did. He was happy about that and the bartender came out to chat with my friend. We had bread pudding and beignets for dessert: definitely recommend the beignets.

My only complaint is that they should pay more attention to the bathroom. I had to chase someone down to replace the toilet paper.

Food was great! Who can argue with fresh, meaty oysters for only a dollar during happy hour?
Are the creamy seafood pasta which sounds just as it tasted. The texture and flavor was spot on and had a good amount of seafood in it (clams, mussels and shrimp).

Definitely would come back!

Celebrated my birthday whilest also catching up with a long time friend I havent seen in awhile. Service from Anna was extremely attentive and friendly, always replenishing our beverages. Food was delicious and fresh, highly recommend the oysters. Great price for midtown. Ambiance was spacious and just perfect for catching up.The staff surprised me by serenading Happy birthday with a candle on a creme brulee. Would definitely bring friends here and highly recommend to others.

The food was really good and fresh. We had the king crab leg with shrimp boil and added a 1 1/4 lobster and clams. The cajun seasoning was really good as well as the garlic butter flavor for the clams. Clams were perfectly cooked (not rubbery like some other places). The staff was friendly and attentive. Happy hour from 5-8pm even on a Saturday was a nice bonus, includes $1 oysters.

Shrimp cocktail was mushy defrosted frozen shrimp, so is the crawfish. Steam clam was fresh and juicy. But I have to remind them twice that I ordered the clam: it came out after I was done with my main course

As a Louisiana native, I am always skeptical of "cajun" restaurants so far from home. However, we tried it. Sadly, the etoufee was bland if not bad. The gumbo was okay. The other food selections for the most part were New England style seafood and did not disappoint. However, the word, "cajun" was misleading for someone from Baton Rouge and New Orleans. They should work on the Cajun recipes. Nice place and staff though.

When we arrived the host said our reservation didn't come through but I had an email confirmation from OpenTable. I've worked at restaurants that use OpenTable so she probably just forgot to check it. So they shoved us at this table in the corner of the bar area it was super dark and loud. They ran out of a lot of different dishes so my mom who is vegetarian ate rice and broccoli for dinner. They didn't bring the table out together, the rice and broccoli came out 10m. after the sea food ?? The waiter didn't come back and ask if our food was okay we had to ask the bartender for salt and pepper.
