We come for the oysters, fresh fish and the outstanding and attentive service (met us at the door with our coats when we were ready to leave even though I had lost the coat check number). Over time we have broadened our list of "favs" among both oysters and fish. This time we enjoyed both east and west coast oysters, saffron accented monkfish paella and succulent black bass. The paella included mussels and shrimp. The bass was accompanied with a sauce that delighted my dinner partner. Don't skip dessert! The dessert menu is even more enticing than our previous visit. We were there on one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants - Valentines Day. With this in mind, I would have over looked a glitch, but there were none. Everything ran flawlessly. We can't wait to get back!

First and foremost, the bartender was very accommodating and fixed multiple drinks for my fiancée when she did not like what she had ordered.
Second, when the hostess approached us at the bar when our table was ready, she excused herself for interrupting, something that is seldom done anymore; manners are important and should be acknowledged when used.

These two favorable experiences really set the tone for a lovely evening at GT Oyster and Fish. Thank you and keep up the good work!

Lively atmosphere but quiet enough the group could hear one another. Great food, but smaller portions - order more to share!

GT has been a favorite for the last few years and thankfully, it has yet to disappoint. It’s just a great all-around dining experience that’s incredibly accessible for a “finer dining” downtown spot.

Dinner at GT Fish & Oyster was outstanding! The Tuna Poke was delicious and authentic. It reminded me of home, and all of the poke choices there in Hawai'i. The clam chowder was another delectable delight and how it was served was fun. I tried the duck confit which was well seasoned. The key lime pie for dessert was another flavor bomb that burst onto the palate and left a smile lingering behind. Enjoy a meal there!

We’ve had a drink at the bar, but never ate at GT before. It was great—service excellent, food wonderful. We split an entree, vegetable and main, plenty for two. The restaurant gave us a generous taste of the bruschetta, which we’ll definitely order next time. Yes, there will be a next time soon.

Excellent experience. GT Prime is one of my favorite spots, so I decided to try the sister restaurant and Fish & Oyster didn't disappoint. I appreciate the restaurant accommodating an extra person added to my party at the last minute. Food was fantastic, cocktails were creative and tasty, and service was spot on. Will definitely return.
