Avoid!! Not only we waited over an hour for our dishes to be served , the food is just not good in any way & same for the cocktails. It seems as if there is no chef in the kitchen, I have never seen such poorly executed dishes in my life.
The rooftop was nice but that’s it. Might be better at night for a drink but don’t waste your time & money on brunch .

We ordered the happy hour oysters and mussels as well the wine. The place is very nice but the prices got the quality of the food it’s to high. The oysters were taste kind of strange. I have oysters from many places but that was the fist time felt like not real oysters. They told me they are from CT, but no name than I have no idea what they were but I did not like it. The mussels were ok but nothing what I will order again. Very small portion. Vine was very good but expensive $10 for happy hour deal.
I would go back but maybe just for a drink. No food. I did not like it.

Service, food, drinks and dessert were very good.
There is construction going on so there is not view or ambiance.
The only estrange issue is the bill comes with an administrative fee charge. The explanation was not clear if this is tips for the servers. We tipped them with cash as they provided good service.
Grilled Octopus, mussels with chorizo sauce, grill beef and the lemon mini cake were delicious.

Arrived for an 8 PM reservation, hostess said it would be a few minutes for our table.

8:15 - she offers us a seat to wait saying it will be another 5-10 minutes.

8:25 - a manager tells us it will be just 10 more minutes, a table was being cleared

8:45 - I speak with the hostess asking what the issue was as we’ve been waiting for 45 minutes. They said people aren’t leaving the tables and we are backed up.

9 - I speak to the manager again, he offers us complimentary drinks, and says he will comp appetizers.

9:05 - we are finally seated. Drinks and apps come out. Then no one comes around for another 45 minutes. We had to ask about entrees which finally came out at 10:15.

During this the staff brought out a few wrong plates, food we didn’t order, and a wrong bill. The manager ended up only comping our drinks, and not the apps like he said he would.

At that point I was just happy to pay and leave. The food is great but they were so off their game tonight, I’m not sure I would go back. I was taking out friends to dinner and have talk this place up so much, and it was just a let down.

The food was excellent but the view is really not good. The pictures on Google maps were kind of misleading. There is no view of the ocean even though the person on the phone said you could see it from the rooftop. Anyway, the food is kind of pricey but it’s worth it!

The pea and ricotta salad was outstanding. The onion soup was good, the mussels and bouillabaisse were ok.

The place was loud and energetic but not what I would call a relaxed French Bistro vibe where I would want to linger; so not what I expected from the descriptions I had read. It was a Saturday night however, and the DJ was good and added to the energy of the restaurant.

The staff was eager and active but I felt a little rushed.

I would go back to try the $1 oysters on Wednesdays but not for a weekend dinner.

Ambiance - none
Food - very good
Service - excellent

I ordered bouillabaisse. Unfortunately the fish and the shrimp were both very bad (not fresh!!). I told the waitstaff that I could not eat this dish. Without any hesitation on their part they removed the dish and replaced it. No questions asked. We were hoping to seat on their roof deck and enjoy the ocean views. Unfortunately the deck was closed. Suggestion call ahead and ask.

As much as I enjoyed the food and appreciated the waitstaff, I would not go back. Plastic chairs and tables, no decor adds up to a lack of ambiance, which adds so much to the dining experience.

I went in with my boyfriend at 7pm for dinner on a Saturday night. We felt like the staff there was a bit overwhelmed. When we walked in were weren’t greeted for awhile and no smiles from the staff. The host came by and started to say “Sorry we aren’t taking walk-ins” but I let her know that we actually had a reservation. We thought it was weird because the restaurant was practically empty and she assumed we were just walk-ins? Maybe because we look young, who knows.

My cocktail was good, I had the “French Kiss”, he ordered a whiskey neat.

The food was decent but I don’t think it was worth the price. We had the cheese board and charcuterie for an appetizer. Which we ordered first, with our drinks. Then the bartender came back and took our entree orders. He ordered the steak and I ordered the Provencal moules. The bartender brought out my entree with the apps. The mussels were room temp a few even cold and I could tell the fries had been sitting out :( So I let him know that they weren’t hot and to bring it out with the steak.

The steak was cooked perfectly medium rare! When my mussels came out they were nice and hot, however they didn’t add any of the sauce and the mussels were gritty. Maybe it was just an off night, but I was disappointed.

The place is super cute and has that hotel restaurant vibe.

It definitely has potential but our experience wasn’t the best. We might come back and try again in a few months, as we do want to support local restaurants. Right now, I recommend coming in to sit on the roof top for a cocktail and an app, but that’s it.

This is a restaurant that holds promise but is not able to deliver. The food is exceptional but the service, ambience, noise makes what could be a high end restaurant in Rockaway a poor representation. My suggestion would be to develop 2 alternatives. A high end eat in restaurant and the beachy snack bar and drink that it is. The food is worthy of dining but not in its current form.

We came here on a whim after reading about their live music and mussels ! Honestly, the food was good. Some things were way better than others. But that’s at any place really. Grilled Oysters are amazing as are their Oysters Rockefeller. I was really excited about the deviled eggs, but they weren’t what I was expecting. Shrimp are HUGE and the mussels in the Thai sauce were amazing !! We also had their cheese board, eggplant gratin and my fave ... the chocolate pot de creme. THIS IS WHAT SOLD IT FOR ME ! Beside the service being top notch, the live music was a beautiful touch.

I think this is an amazing little hidden gem :)
