We used to love this restaurant, unfortunately, it is not what it once was. There is no need to douse a beautiful and simple prepared fish with a stick of butter. The service was terrible. I understand a busy restaurant but when the waiter doesn’t even let you finish your sentence when asking for the wine menu and doesn’t even apologize for spilling wine all over your table when pouring, it’s not ok. The oysters and martinis are delicious though so maybe just go for happy hour.

Way too expensive, we have been dining there since the day they opened their doors. Quality went down hill after ownership change. We have not been for about a year and went back few days ago. what a disappointment. Angry fish @ $58 really? the worst Rainbow trout I've had in my life, not to mention the server who was so not interested in serving us.

We have been to this establishment many many times, and every single time we really enjoy the food, the service and just the overall experience. We recently had Rashid as our waiter and he was awesome! We will be back soon!!!

We have been customers since the first week they opened and over the years it was great but over the last few years it has declined. Food prices are too high, portions smaller, quality lower especially the crab cakes which my wife loves. She has ordered it probably 20 times over the years. Now it has filler instead of just crab meat and smaller too and for $39.00, it is now a rip. Even after we complained to the waiter, his response was, " I will tell the chef', like that would be a complete surprise to him! Also for long time customers, you could request herring with the plate of carrots, olives and radishes and without hesitation they would be brought. Now after requesting them the waiter says they stopped that 6 weeks ago, but then he checked and guess what, they have some! Last time we will be eating there. By the way, having a maître 'd coming around asking how the diner was with hands in his pocket just is not in good taste, pardon the pun!

We ate every last, delicious bite.
The drinks were tasty, one of our servers wasn’t the friendliest, but there was another who made up for it.

Those who did not know it would be surprised this is part of a large chain. It is not run like one.
This is a very underrated eatery.

Absolutely a must when visiting SD. My wife and I make a point to come here our first night to have a perfect dinner out. 5 stars all the way around. Every time.

Apparently this is part of a national chain, but it feels more like one of a kind. Extremely good food, innovatively prepared. Very nice people, who seem to care about their guests.
