It was a fish restaurant with an absence of fish on the weekend lunch menu. Very nice staff and management.

We arrived late in the evening (details irrelevant). The staff was generous & reassuring. No rush at all. Took a special friend there from California - she loved it. I normally don't like panda cotta, but this was the best panda cotta dessert I have ever had. I'd loved to eat two.

We met my visiting niece for Sunday dinner. The vibe was noisy; everyone seemed to be having a good time. However, since the tables were very close, it was difficult to follow your own table's conversation. The service was excellent. I'm diary-free, pescatarian and my son is vegetarian. The server was very forth-coming with options.

I had fish and chips, served with malt vinegar - very good and shared by all. I also ordered the eggplant side dish which was not to any of our liking - the eggplant was mushy and the asian sauce too sweet. I had a mango sorbet - delightful! I did not try the other dishes, but all enjoyed their choices.

Food was great but service was spotty, at best. Not to caliber or worth prices. Bartender was terrific, however.
Been a while since we’ve been here; probably will be the last time. Value is minimal, considering service

We were split on the food--some found it wonderful, others so-so. It took awhile to show up, but the place was very busy (Saturday night) when we arrived so we cut it a little slack. We probably would have been happy enough, except the noise level made any communication that wasn't shouted impossible to hear... noisiest room we've dined in in years. Might be good for lunch.

I haven't been to GT in a while, but I feel that the food quality has declined. My pasta was kind of cold and overcooked. The seafood tower didn't seem to have much food for $150 - enough lobster for maybe 3 people, a couple oysters and mussels - I was not very impressed with that item.

We got drinks, a shrimp avocado bruschetta, chocolate cake and panna cotta. Literally everything was amazing. The panna cotta has a ton of unusual ingredients in it, but they all work so well to compliment each other. Service was great too, even though the restaurant was packed.

Took the shucking class with my family after receiving the recommendation from a coworker! We loved the class, but were disappointed that the sommelier did not talk about the wine/champagne pairings at all (which was one thing my coworker had raved about). The food was delicious - overpriced on a few items, but overall very good.

GT Fish & Oyster is simply amazing. Their cocktails are spot on, service is impeccable and the food... oh the food is incredible! My only disappointment this visit was that their deviled eggs were no longer available. I had those a few visits back and was looking forward to having them again!

Disappointing second visit. I ordered the Halibut entree which came out on a small dessert plate. It was overcooked and dry. The Thai soup and the eggplant side dish were both excellent. The manager took care of the Halibut and gave us free ice cream which was very nice. It was a disappointing meal.
