Angler is a sea-life focused restaurant from Chef Joshua Skenes and Saison Hospitality.

Each day’s inspiration is drawn from the products themselves and is an articulation of their natural flavors served at their peak taste. We work with a small group of fishermen, hunters, gatherers, ranchers, and farmers to find and follow microclimates that produce the highest quality products in local existence. All of the cooking revolves around an open wood fire.

Excellent food and service. A+. Not sure about location, central is good but mall parking lot felt strange. Did not like the music. All 80s, like Huey Lewis. And loud. Other than that amazing. $$$$$ but worth it.

Fabulous meal. Great service! Dined next to fish tanks with sea urchins and flounder! Expensive, but worth the cost!

We tried the ceasar salad which was a fresh take on the classic, the beets and tomato course was a bit muddled with the flavors lost in the mix, the sea bass was perfect amount of spice, the bread side was also very nice. The potatoes were fabulous. The overall presentation, attention to detail and service were all great. This is a great find were it not for the locale at the bottom of the mall which brings in a not so trendy, edgy crowd. Hopefully the word will spread.

The overall food quality and service was quite bad. We took my wife for her bday and simply didn’t enjoy most of the dishes. The chicken was dry, the fish was good but nothing I couldn’t prepare myself at home. The sommelier was not helpful and couldn’t even pair our foods. We are avid foodies from New York, Sf, LA and Miami. Trust me, I wouldn’t recommend this place at all.

The food was amazing. The chicken, of all things, was the best we’ve ever had. The service was attentive and impeccable. The Sundae was out this world!

The ambience was approachable and well-thought out. The noise level was really good. There was music but you could carry on a conversation at a normal level. Highly recommend.

Great and fresh seafood, and cooked in a nice surprising way. Service was excellent and attentive.
I was hoping that there was the dry aged beef option on the menu but they changed it so that was a bit of a miss. Other than that, great atmosphere, ambience, food and service

Unbelievable dining experience roasted beet is a must! Along with the cultured butter, roasted tomato cocktail sauce for the bivalves. Antelope tartar not to be missed
Elegant and refined yet casual and comfortable environment. Super tasty!

Angler did not disappoint! I took my picky mother there for dinner on her birthday and she loved it! The food, service, atmosphere was amazing! The only complaint was the music was blaring so it was difficult to have a conversation. The seafood was delicious and if you have room for dessert, the cocoa pod is a must!

Every single dish was amazing, but what makes it all even better is the quality of service. Every single server at Angler is there making sure you are enjoying your night and having a great time.

I already booked my next visit.

There was a lot that I liked about Angler. To start, our server was extremely personable and welcoming, as were all the employees. On the other hand, when we wanted to order wine partway through our meal, he disappeared for a while, and we were left waiting. Additionally, he forgot to put in one of our items, only realizing this was the case when he came by to see if we were done eating. He apologized and did put the item (a salad) in at the point, and though it was odd to end the meal with a salad (we hadn't ordered dessert yet) the salad was fantastic! And much of the food was excellent -- the caviar w/ banana pancake, the antelope, the oysters and the desserts... but the potatoes and cheese were only okay, as was the mushroom soup. The cocktails were outstanding -- I regret not having a mezcal pina colada before! But the misses, like a waiter partially refilling our flat tap water glass with some sort of bitter tonic/sparkling water, along with the delays in service and errors in ordering made it feel like we wouldn't recommend Angler for the price (over $400 for the two of us). At that price, we could go somewhere and get a flawless prix fixe with wine pairings. I really like the Angler concept, high end food and service in a relaxed atmosphere, but if you're paying that much, you don't want the relaxation to extend to service.

Absolutely fantastic assortment of flavours and textures. Marble fish and uni so fresh and delicately sweet. 5day preparation chicken with crisp skin was unbelievable. Even the dessert course was outstanding. Go now before the crowds find it.

Unique, quirky and delightful. Angler anything but cookie-cutter. The caviar in banana pancakes is pure whimsy. The radicchio in XO sauce and the roasted beets are flavor bombs. But the poached Marble Fish was as delicate and lovely as anything at Providence (or even Le Bernardin). The wine list is extensive with quite a few wines in the $50 range. That said this restaurant is expensive (over $300 for two people with drinks) and the service is a work in progress. But few restaurants have a unique vision of what they want to serve, and Angler is one of them.
