 (Washington DC)·Dined on January 14, 2018

Sunday brunch was the most impressive buffet I've ever experienced. Incredible array of choices, including lots of fresh seafood in addition to more traditional breakfast and lunch choices and lots of desserts. Everything was well prepared and very tasty. The $55 per person price isn't unreasonable considering the luxurious foods on offer as well as champagne, Bloody Marys and Mimosas included.
The outside patio added to the pleasant experience and the live music was great!

Beyond Disappointing. I assumed a restuarant with oyster in its name might pay attention to the quality of oysters it serves. I was wrong. They served oysters that should have been thrown out a week ago. Quality, preparation, and presentation of food was poor, putting it kindly. Dessert was inedible. Prices were high. Service was ok, but should have done more to protect the interests of their customer from a kitchen that thinks it is acceptable to serve garbage and management who thinks it is fine to charge premium prices for garbage.

Beautiful waterfront view and good food that is worth a try. I enjoyed my grilled snapper which came with a starch and a vegetable of the day. The rice that came with the snapper was very delicious, and not too salty which is excellent as many restaurants tend to put too much salt into the food but this one was just perfectly done.

While the service was good, the food was very mediocre and pricey. The blackened grouper I ordered was rubbery, most probably due to overcooking. This is supposed to be a seafood place, but I was really surprised by the quality of Floridian signature dish.

My wife and I were in Tampa for the Outback Bowl and used opentable to find some good seafood for New Tears Eve. Oystercatchers didn’t disappoint. Great food, drinks and, of course, oysters. We will definitely be back when we hit Tampa.

What a wonderful, delicious New Year's Eve dinner. The ambiance cannot be beat. We did not dine until 9 and the staff, while busy, was polite and attentive despite their fatigue which was not apparent. Thank you for making our New Year's Eve a wonderful memory. We will be back.

Oysters were small and not fresh. Caviars were the cheap types of fish roes. Drinks were cheap and not well-made. Music was loud and not professional enough. Other dishes were just as ordinary as what a $20 buffet can offer. Napkins smelt awful and the seats were stained and dirty. I can't believe that it costs over $50 per person.

Just wow.....

Never have I been waited on like this for brunch. The staff is beyond amazing and calling this brunch is understatement. This place is 6 star....beyond amazing. Be sure to make reservation. Prices are upper end of price spectrum but a brunch that has omelettes waffles roast pork grilled salmon oysters on half shell fresh shrimp sushi to name a few...and unlimited mimosas and bloody mary bar. This list is only a fraction of what is offered and all have chefs or attendants at each station.

Add to your to do list and dress up.....its beautiful and great slice of how great Florida is for foodies.

The restaurant is part of the Hyatt complex, but set way back at the very end. It is a multi level structure giving more access to see the bay outdoors. The service was excellent and friendly -- always helpful with suggestions. Their Aha Tuna Poke is the biggest I have ever seen. Topped with onion straws and a seaweed salad, huge chunks of tuna with creamy avocado on the bottom. Truly a meal unto itself. They recommend their grouper sauteed on a bed of rice pilaf. Their chicken, a breast and a leg/thigh confit with brussel sprouts and other vegetables. Their key lime is light and airy and their chocolate peanut butter "cup" is dense and rich. We'll be back.
