    Great food and cocktails. The server was outstanding from start to finish. Management came to check in. The food was perfection and the atmosphere was superb even though it was a full house, the noise level was minimal. Loved the whole experience.

    First time here…overall decent food, will go back and want to try other items! Drinks: I ordered the Clarified Colada, overall good and easy to drink quickly…maybe because there was a tad too much ice, but would order again. Husband order Brown Butter Old Fashioned, he enjoyed. Appetizers: Scallop Crudo, beautiful presentation, husband LOVED IT, I had two pieces and was happy to give the rest of it to my husband who enjoyed it more. Nothing with the dish just personal preference. But…the Caesar Salad was AMAZING. I would just go back and order this 10x more. Chilled lettuce, greats amount of dressing and cheese, and the slivers of anchovies are always my favorite…BUT THE BACON, yes please give me more. Dinner: I ordered the Venison Osso Bucco. The sauce was a bit salty but I enjoyed the taste. The mirepoix mashed potatoes were good, just too much on the plate for me to finish (again, personal preference) the sautéed spinach was great!! The meat unfortunately a hit of miss…some pieces were good, some…hard/tough to cut and then others were just inedible. I would order something else next time. But my husband loved his short rib, fork tender, no need for the knife at all. 100% would order again. Bill was great, and was knowledge of the menu and made sure to describe the size or count of items included in each dish (4 scallops in the scallop risotto, bone in pork chop, 6/7 pieces of the scallop crudo, etc)

    The food was very good, especially the catch of the day. The cocktails were excellent with some very interesting flavors. Place was very crowded on a Saturday night so started out very loud but quite down as it got later. Great location near lots of the hotels. Would recommend for a good modern dining experience.

    This was probably the worst dining experience we’ve had in YEARS. This is the first bad review I’ve ever written. The oysters and appetizers took an hour. When we asked our waitress for recommendations she said, “I’m mentally too busy to answer, you just have to pick.” (We should have left at that moment). My husbands $72 (8 oz!) Ribeye had a “huckleberry sauce” that was overcooked and tasted like grape jelly. The table next to us were complaining as we were closing out - they were livid. Had we not overheard them, I probably wouldn’t have said anything (we never complain or send food back) but it was bad, really bad. I could go on and on - but I think you get it. That said - we have been in the area for 3 days and we had amazing meals and service at Catch, Flying Fish, The Bench at Pebble, The Hay, and Stationary.
