We arrived perfectly on time for our reservation, but there was a line of people who had not yet been seated. After waiting for about 15 minutes with very little communication from the hostess as to what was going on, it was apparent that there was no availability and somehow the restaurant was showing open slots on Opentable that didn’t exist. We watched more people pour in to the same situation before leaving.

We went for the black cod dish and it didn’t disappoint. Shared an appetiser of cubed crispy skin pork that was good. Also ordered a scallop dish with sweet pea pods average taste. Impeccable service and we had such a warm welcome from The manager Angel

The food was delicious however their computer was down so after waiting 15 mins to pay with our credit card, we ended up paying cash. This place isn't cheap but luckily we had enough cash to cover the bill.

Birthday! Loved everything only when I was first in line the person seating people took people back of me first — then he later waved at me to come in and when we did he took off and left us standing on the Deck Outside — and NO ONE seated us

The Blackened Cod is truly amazing . . . I'll be back for that dish for sure! The outdoor patio is spacious and has a beautiful view of the Ferry Building. This would be a perfect venue for a private gathering as there are many separated rooms for privacy.

Food was excellent but service was slow. There is a shortage of workers due to the current overly generous unemployment package.

Absolutely outstanding. Food and service was great. Luckily we had some Chinese persons in the party, who were able to order. Some of the dishes, I would not have figured out. The service at the bar was very responsive. I am so glad they are open again

Very slow and confusing service. Dishes came out at various times so we finally gave up waiting for everyone to get their dish and just started eating while others in our party waited for their food. Sold out of several items we tried to order. Very chaotic experience. Felt rushed and like we were a bother.

Reserved on Open Table. Arrived exactly on time. Hostess outside was in obvious overwhelm, but then again, it was a Sunday at noon on a holiday weekend - signs said "Reservations - Line" so we waited in line - 10 minutes - nothing. I finally made my way to the front and announced "Open Table - 12:00 for 2 - confirmed this morning" and was told to go inside immediately. Confusing. Up dark stairway through dark hallway to another sign that said to go to the patio? But someone met us and took us to a table for two inside. It was fine. NOISY but fine. Server was prompt, dim sum was very good. No complaints there. VERY busy place. But very good. Would consider returning, but there is a smaller, more personal dim sum place on Broadway I think I would choose first. Best dish: Pork wontons with chili in broth - EXCELLENT !!!
