From the minute we walked in, the service was impeccable. We had a reservation for two people at the bar. We came about 10 or 15 minutes early asked the hostesses we could get a table, and they said yes the handoff to the server to the cocktails to the oysters, the Alaskan King crab legs, the octopus everything was perfect tasted fantastic

The food was really good. Oysters very fresh. Mussels were outstanding. The fries with the dill pickle remoulade were an interesting twist. The banana foster creme brulee and key lime pie were great. The seafood tower was a bit pricey for what was included. Service was very attentive and friendly. My one issue was the noise level- especially with masks very difficult to hear the staff. Even my 15yr old son commented about the noise level.

Strike 1 ...Expecting Customers to pay for the Health Insurance a " Turn off" regardless of any pandemic. We all have had to pay the price for this
Strike 2...Understanding we have 90 minutes via the Hostess is perfectly fine; however, noting on the handout at the table, you "will be by " to settle at 75 Minutes a "Turn Off"
Strike 3....No Bread with orders ..Why Not??? Seems to be the norm in a higher end restaurant.

Seems to me looking more like trying to pass on your COVID costs to customer so no need for a return visit.

Our server, Anthony did a good job, Chefs did their job, our hostess did a good job, bartender was good, buses were good...Too bad Management has decided to make some of the decisions they have.

Went for their 10 year Anniversary! Complimentary champagne to start and dessert to finish was a really nice touch and unexpected. One of my favorite restaurants since their beginning. You can see how much their employees like to work there. The smiles are genuine.

We were really impressed with how well they handled social distancing. We ordered west coast oysters, the tuna appetizer (which was a bit small for the price, as others noted, but really loved it), charred broccoli (highly recommend - very unique with the lemon and burrata), mussels (loved the dish, wasn’t a huge fan of the garlic bread toast that came with it), and the fish and chips (fantastic). We’ve been here a few times and still love to come back!

Great food but I didn't appreciate being told that we would only have 90 minutes for dinner. It was a birthday celebration for my wife and son and as we were seated, we were told we had to be out in 90 minutes. Also, the sun was low in the western sky and the window shade was insufficient to adequately block out the glare.

All in all, a good experience.

Excellent restaurant! Must try the shrimp bruschetta. It is fabulous! Only disappointment was that we were seated in the bar area. There was a beautiful table that would have accommodated our group (we had 5 in our party) in the main dining area near a window but we were given a table in the bar near the door. It was still nice but I made the reservation a good 2 weeks in advance so not really sure why we didn’t get the table in the main room. The staff was excellent and the food came quickly. We were celebrating a birthday (they must have known this because they asked whose birthday it was) but they didn’t offer any complimentary dessert which I found surprising especially since many of us ordered dessert or after dinner drinks. Would definitely recommend.

Found this nice gem on OpenTable and was able to get a reservation at 8pm. Husband and I were greeted by very friendly faces and was sat in a nice, social distance approved area. The servers and service was good and attentive. The food was fresh and delicious. Would definitely recommend to friends!

We are big GT F&O fans and have been for several years. This experience was extremely disappointing. We had greatly anticipated our return to GYF&O post COVID and the service was in complete disarray. We were brought the wrong food twice and ostracized for not ordering more. The management interrupted conversation twice to make sure we were aware of our time limit. For such a sophisticated establishment, this was unacceptable. We will not be promptly returning.
