Everything's just PERFECT! Try chef's favorite oysters which are all creamy and fresh. Mussels and lobsters are also great, and the bread is a surprise. This restaurant just made my day! Love love love <3

The cold appetizer for four was great ... the oysters were fresh and served appropriately chilled. I thought the ceviche was great but the portion a bit small. Fried clams were flavorful and puffy ... not greasy in the least. The chowder was a little thin and very Smokey. That was the only real miss.

Been going since they opened, big fans. When there was a hiccup in serving our entrees, Chelsea, the manager, was extremely generous and personable. Frankly it turned a small mistake into a legitimate positive in the meal. Our server was great too. Wines are also fantastic.

We have been to the restaurant many times - the service is always excellent - very well trained staff. Two small criticisms - the small portion of fried clams was unusually small - the white caviar sliders were also on the tiny side.

I’ve been several times and it’s always been great- but this night it just wasn’t. Too start, they were out of three menu items and with a fairly small menu to start with, this really left minimal options. Second- my food was good- but not great, and our service was pretty bad. At the bar, the bar tender was unable to recommend a wine- and at our table our server couldn’t answer pretty basic questions about the menu and was generally inattentive. It wasn’t terrible... it just wasn’t even close to as good as every other time I’ve been there.

The lobster crepes were memorable! Such tender knuckles in a light cream sauce and the crepes were not slimey-they were perfectly fresh and melt-in- your mouth soft.
I'm dreaming of when I can go back again. Perfect cocktail of maple, lemon, bitters and rum (?) I had two that night and would reorder the exact same dinner with oyster apps. Great execution, friendly service, very professional service on Valentine's night. Exta busy but very well controlled. We were so pleased!
