    Food and drinks were good, nothing special. Crab claw was tiny. Biggest issue was terrible service where bartender would forget we existed, walk right past us to the people to either side of us. Unless I said excuse me and raised my hand nobody would have asked us a thing. I get this was the last night of the place and guessing a lot of regulars they were pandering to, but just make it a private event then. Speaking of regulars, bunch of people acting important and invading others personal space. Lady next to us tossed one of her 3 napkins over where my wife's app plate was. I got elbow of rude lady next to me where they squeezed 4 idiots in a space for 2 for some reason. Plenty of tables available, which for some reason we didn't get sat at, and yet they packed the bar seats. Glad to see the place close its doors, hopefully something better takes over

    The service was great as usual. Attentive but not overbearing. The roasted oysters and crab cakes were great. Drinks were just as good. Lobster rolls weren’t as great as I remember, but solid.

    Cold seafood selection was good. Prices are high but that makes sense being that this is the Mideast and likely import all their seafood. Not sure why they are shutting down. Beautifully decorated.

    Back in 2016 my dad received a terminal cancer diagnosis. We decide to spend his last few months going out to eat together every week. GT was his favorite place to go! We ate there nearly every week for nearly 5 months. Some of my friends that new my father well joined me for dinner last night to remember my dad as we approach the 6 year anniversary of his passing. It was great being back at GT. It brought back lots of good memories. The food is still excellent!

    No bread & butter with a seafood platter...really? Someone needs to take a trip to the ocean shores and grab a dozen in a small oyster shack! Still good quality products but lack a little authenticity...a little smell of iodine.

    We had a very nice dinner with two appetizers - hiramasa crudo and octopus; and two entrees, scallops and dorade; and a bottle of french chardonnay. The food was outstanding. The nice touch is that they surprised us with a free dessert since it was a birthday celebration. Definitely a great place for fish, at a reasonable price.

    My dad and I love seafood so we wanted to try GT. The oysters were very good as was the lobster roll! My dad enjoyed the trout but thought it could be seared a bit better as it looked slightly undercooked. Service was pretty decent and the desserts were amazing!
