Very fresh seafood, and they definitely adhere to the social distance dining rules for outdoor dining, with heat lamps to offset the late fall/early winter chill at night. The stuffies needed some acidity to counter the saltiness and richness, but otherwise were tasty, and very filling. Black cod was melt in your mouth delicious! Lobster roll could use more lobster, but still a solid choice (if a bit pricey). And chowder trio was nice on a cold night.

From the moment we arrived to when we left, everything was done with perfection. The staff was friendly and attentive, service was excellent, the food was exceptional and we felt very safe, all the tables were set at a more than safe distance, all the staff was wearing PPE’s.
My go to restaurant when we are in town. Thank you.

Took a while to get seated although we had reservations. However, the food was excellent. We had the chowder trio, lobster roll, and half rock crab. Would recommend them all.

Everything was good. Felt rushed. Just got my clam chowder and then my lobster roll was brought so couldn’t finish my chowder. I ordered the onion rings with my lobster roll which were yummy however they needed a sauce other than ketchup. All in all good. Just wish was a lot better for what we paid.

My favorite seafood place in LA. I almost always order the lobster roll, but everything is great. Both fried and grilled calamari are excellent. Servers are always very attentive and nice.

We came back to celebrate our anniversary. Our server was very attentive. The appetizers, entrees and dessert were all outstanding. I love oysters and clam chowder. The mussels and clams were in a rich lemony broth and the bread pudding was delicious. What a meal! Looking forward to our next anniversary.

The food is very good, but a little pricey. The outside dining setup in the parking lot leaves a little something to be desired. It needs to be stepped up a bit.

Great restaurant to go to during COVID. Outside seating, thoughtfully spaced, they are really careful about their presentation to you to keep you healthy: eg, mini sanitized cloth given to you with the return of your credit card so you can clean it immediately. Delicious sword fish and broccolini with olive tapenade, and their fish dip with crackers as a starter was perfect. Go make a reservation. Fun.

The staff is super friendly and the ambience inside (when we used to be able to eat inside) is beautiful. My biggest complaint with the place is that it is outrageously overpriced and I’ve always found the food to be quite bland with few exceptions. Example: I ordered the herb crusted monkfish and it was a tiny portion and really lacked flavor. It was hardly worth the $30 price tag. Lobster rolls costing $29 is also quite pricey considering they are rather small.

I recently had to go gluten free/dairy free. I ordered halibut cooked in oil and spices. When it arrived I found out they use butter. This was very disappointing. The menus should identify key ingredients
