    We weren't even thinking about Happy Hour when we made reservations, but we were delighted with the HH specials. The food was delicious, the portions were sizeable (especially the Asian Nachos which was HUGE!). And the service was excellent. They have a nicely varied wine list, and the cocktails are outstanding. We look forward to coming back.

    My wife and I came in for a late dinner. The ahi tuna tacos were good. But our main courses were extremely dry almost like we was the left over fish from before. My wife had the Paella and her rice was burnt and dry. I had the salmon Cuban and the fish was dry and tasteless. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to the kitchen closing on a slow night but we won’t be back.

    Seated right on time for our reservation. Squash appetizer with ricotta was amazing! Entrées: paella from the regular menu, smoked salmon potpie from the specials. Both exceeded expectations. Paella had lovely signature crispy bits of rice. Potpie less gravy, more fish and veggies than the average. (Plus, an adorable octopus on the flaky pastry!). House rye old fashioned was far too sweet, but that's the only downfall we found throughout the excellent meal experience. Well-attended by our friendly server, Nicole, as well!

    Went for a birthday. We wrote in to ask if a surprise cake could be presented. It wasn’t. Food portions were small and over priced. Expected more options on the menu. Overall disappointing when we hoped it would be special. Maybe it was just an off night…

    Yet another excellent experience, food, service all excellent. A new fall menu was delightful. My group sat outside, so my ambience ratings are based on that. Eating inside there is also great, but the noise level can be a bit extreme. That's my only complaint about this place, and many others.

    Greeted warmly at door; seated at nice hi-top near entrance; hostess said to let her know of open door was too chilly. Great service throughout meal; server (did not introduce) was especially good. All 3 of us had clam chowder: OUTSTANDING… and we’ve dined in Maine! Clam cakes, swordfish bolognese and trout entrees all superb.

    Some of our food was excellent and some of it was just okay. They were so busy I think it just took a while to get outside to us, so some of it wasn’t warm. Otherwise it was really good and the outdoor eating area is super cool.

    The raw oysters were outstanding. Unfortunately the wahoo was way over cooked. The waiter was kind enough to replace and comp it, but the second one was overdone as well. A cardinal rule in preparing sautéed or other cooked fish is to NOT over cook it.

    Everything BUT the dessert was excellent. From the oysters to the best calamari to the fish and chips to EVEN the steak was phenomenal. But the dessert needed work. Uncooked unflavored oats tossed on some peaches does not constitute a peach cobbler. Hire a pastry chef. It gets loud in there during dinner time. A double date table seated closely next to us drowned out conversation. Will go back just for the sweet chili sauce with the calamari.

    Looking for good fish in Kansas is not as easy as growing up in Boston. Found Mass Street online and enjoyed it. Fried oyster appetizer best I’ve had in years. Wife enjoyed salmon entree. Relaxed ambience, attentive and pleasant service. Not real inexpensive. We’ll return.

    Went to visit our son for parents weekend at KU and he wanted a good steak (I know this is a fish place but heard steaks were good too) We had steak and seafood and everything was great. Got in right away at reservation time, ate outside and enjoyed oysters, Ahi tuna nachos for starters. Rib eye was cooked perfect along with ny shrimp pasta I would highly recommend!
