Good service
We started with a bottle of Prosecco and the baked oyster casino. Very nice! The shrimp risotto was excellent and my seafood salad was tasty and filling. We shared the dessert sampler which was a nice variety of desserts.

A very nice lunch experience!

I loved the tasty oysters, fresh sushi, and amazing crab cake sandwich. I had a very relaxing and productive lunch. The staff was awesome. Everyone was upbeat, friendly, and accommodating.

I dont eat shellfish but do eat fish, although all was fine (excellent service) turns out everything they offer fried is fried in the same oil as their shellfish. I ended up having the NY Strip, it was very good and cooked well too but its priced like a NYC fine steakhouse and it wasn't that quality. My guests loved it and other than my allergies, my problem, Id go back. A bit price but its NY

Our server didn’t greet us for some time since he was pretty busy and overwhelmed.

It’s my go to place when planning dinner with friends and family. The food is consistently good and it’s the best bar on the East side. Love this place!

The quality of the food is very, very good. The reason for my middle of the road rating on the service relates to the amount of time it took to take our order and get served our appetizers. The wait staff was very polite.
