Still my favorite Carb place in the city, but last time I noticed that the crabs were cooked differently. Definitely less garlic than usual and perhaps the process has changed?
One advise to management, the waiter was great but the helpers bringing the food out don't look too happy. It some instants even mad about something.

We miss the fixed meal: small salad, roasted crab, and tiramisu and the crab was old and dry, not at all succulent.

Got the $50 whole Dungeness crab and it came in pieces so I was very disappointed. It was very messy and they only gave me two small napkins and never returned to give me more. Poor service.

Everyone should try this restaurant once. But be prepared to spend too much money for what you get. Great views, decent food, ridiculously over-priced.

This is definitely a great place for crab/seafood lover. The food is not too oily and salty. Seafood is very fresh. Staff are very friendly. Restaurant is very clean. Price is fair, I personally think it is a good deal. If you are looking for seafood restaurant, you must visit this place.
