    Great menu with lots of good shellfish and seafood. Couple comments would be shrimp on the shellfish tower were a bit average/small for that type of dish. Also, Would be nice to have a regular green house type salad on menu. Addition of full sushi bar - fantastic. Seafood fettuccini was loaded with perfectly cooked fish. Need to include some crostini or crusty bread for the broth - Which was nice but we expected more of a spicy tomato based sauce based on the menu description. Crab cake was good and nice portion. Great cocktails. Didn’t get to try dessert because they were out of the two we wanted. Prices are fair and reasonable. Overall I would come back for sure.

    Open until 10pm - started to get rushed out at 9pm- appetizer was in flames when served (not the issue) - but waiter blew the flames out - not the way to handle in during a pandemic. Has to be a better solution!

    The updated salmon dish with polenta was delicious--well cooked and nicely portioned. The seafood stew was also a big hit, and the two people at the table who chose non-fish entrees (pork chop and skirt steak) were also very happy with their meals. The staff was attentive without being intrusive, and they were very easy-going about two of us splitting a wedge salad. What a nice evening!

    Went out with two girlfriends and We sat outside on a nice summer night - pleasant outdoor space. Service was very attentive and friendly. We ordered the charcuterie board which is a GREAT shareable item due to its generous size. However, we found it a little strange that the only crackers or bread service that comes with it are a sort of sweet cherry/nut cracker. What a STRANGE choice to serve with fish. We all agreed plain cracker or toasted bread would’ve been a welcome addition. Also - no spreadable cheese (Cream cheese, Boursin , anything that would help bridge the gap between fish and cracker) only sweet jam and mustard. Again - very odd. On a positive note, all of the fish served on the charcuterie board was delicious and tasty. We each ordered a different salad for our entrées and everyone enjoyed their salads.

    Excellent food and service. We sat outside. Very nice outside area. They’ve done a nice job with shrubs to isolate from the road as best you can with that space. There is road noise which is unavoidable but we didn’t care about that.

    Totally mediocre. Service is pretty terrible. Staff just don’t seem to have a sense of what they’re supposed to be doing. So, expect mistakes, long waits, messes, etc. The food is just ok. The fish seems over cooked and meals generally underwhelming.

    Great location. The place had been gutted. Absolutely no ambiance - McDonalds with a bar. Water already on table - not cold. Bread is $3.00. Took 7+ minutes to get wine although the bar tender was just talking to 3 waitstaff. Grilled asparagus delicious. Artic char plated skin side up - Really!!! Potatoes came 6+ minutes after the entrees had been served. Maybe they were supposed to be roasted - but they were burned on the outside.

    First time we ate here about a yr ago, the food was yummy all around...but the next 2 times, including this last time...not so much. Particularly the Halibut. We love this fish, but last 2 visits it just wasn't the same as first time. Our server was AMAZING...very friendly, attentive.... until she brought the check without asking if we would like dessert.

    Food was excellent. Ambiance was so so, too bright and “sterile. Waiter was slow, inattentive and forgetful. Forgot our salad and the entree’s came out. Had to remind him. Didn’t get the salad with the dressing on the side. No spoon or waste dish for the shells. Forgot to bring my 2nd beer…..it was on ice. Really good food, just need to level up the wait staff.

    I ordered the beets & goat cheese salad. It felt more like a brussel sprout salad. It had a weird dressing. Although my friend pointed it out after it was served and I expressed how I didn't like it, it just didn't hit me how I would like it. It had a smoky dressing. Everyone else loved their food. Seafood Fettucine was wonderful.

    Generous portions of expertly cooked very fresh seafood. Great service. Staightforward, unpretentious food done well. Tables spaced well to allow conversation. My only tiny complaint was a trace of grit in one of my oysters and the horseradish did not have much punch.

    Everything was outstanding. The Spicy Pineapple Margaritas were refreshing, with a crisp bite that paired nicely with the calamari appetizer. The Mediterranean Seafood Stew was one of the best dishes I've had in a very long time. The flavor was incredible. I did sneak a couple bites of my wife's Diver Scallops and my daughter's Seafood Fettucine, and although not as good as the stew, they were phenomenal as well. We finished off the evening with an order of the Pistachio Gelato and the Mango Guava Gelato. Sweet and light, they were the perfect end to a delicious seafood dinner. Lastly, the service and the atmosphere is top notch. From the hostess to the servers to the bartenders, everyone had a smile on their face and seemed genuinely appreciative that we were dining with them. They've also got really cool wallpaper in the restrooms.

    The price of the entrees was a bit higher than I expected. Opentable has the restaurant listed as $$ when it should be $$$. Most of the entrees were above $30 and some were above $40. I asked for a second glass of wine and it was going to be delivered as we were looking for our check. I doubt we will return.

    Fantastic first time experience! A gorgeous evening eating outside. We started with the Smoked Fish Charcutrie which was excellent. Not your typical charcutrie with cheese and meats and we will definitely order again. Next on to one of the best caeser salads which is easily split between 2. I had the crispy char which was perfectly cooked, and others at the table had sea bass and prime hanger steak and everything cooked perfectly and enjoyed. Meals met met my varied dietary restrictions (kosher style and gluten free). I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    My wife and I had a great time celebrating my birthday at OFH. The food was excellent and the server was a wonderful woman. It seemed to take a little long getting our food (45 minutes for the sushi roll) but maybe they were short staffed and worth the wait. We definitely plan to go back as it was our first time there and a great find. Thank you!
