    Service excellent! Food very good. Brunch Lobster and scallop benedicts with perfectly fried potatoes. Prices high but expected. Tables waaaayyyyy too close for comfort. I heard their whole conversation and I’m sure they heard ours. That’s my only complaint is that the tables were not spaced out enough. Cramped. Neighbors were right there on our backs. Other than that, I’d return to try something else.

    We had to wait for our table despite having reservations. The place was dingy and dirty everywhere. Waited over an hour after our appetizers for our dinners. Then, each dinner came separately; one about twenty minutes later. Food was good not great.

    Went to dinner with a couple friends - the restaurant was much smaller than I had realized, and I had been hoping for a bit fancier. The food menu was basically a single sheet of paper, and they didn't have a printed drink menu. The food and service were fine - scallops were tasty - but the wine selection was not great. It wasn't bad, and maybe my expectations were too high, it was just a little less than I had been expecting. Also 20% gratuity is added for all checks/parties, which was a little surprising, so maybe they anticipate that they won't otherwise be meeting expectations.

    I liked the restaurant, but I didn't realize that there was another seating area in the restaurant. We were seated close to the door and I would have liked to have been seated in the other area. I liked the music but the volume was a little high. The food was very good. This fish was cooked well. The mashed potatoes and brussel sprout where prepared well, but I think they should have been part of the entree not separate, a la carte.

    The food and service were fantastic. We started our meal with oysters. They were excellent. I had the surf and turf the steak was cooked perfectly. My wife had the salmon special she loved it. we both had the Key Lime Pie and it's one of the best Key Lime pies we've ever had. This was our second visit and we will be back again

    Nice intimate restaurant. Good music and staff. Love the ambience as well. The food was good. Def recommend the surf and turf. The only issue I had was the steak being cooked medium well when I asked for medium but It could’ve been an honest mistake and it was also late in the evening near closing time. Otherwise great visit and I plan to come back.

    My friend and I went to Pinefish for restaurant week and it was the first city restaurant outing I've been to since becoming pescatarian. I ordered the Bronzino fish I believe and it was a bit burnt but tasty, nonetheless. My friend ordered the short ribs which came with mashed potatoes and she said the ribs were kind of heavy/greasy but the mashed potatoes were perfect. We both had the clam chowder which was delicious and creamy as well. One thing I will say is that the tables were too close together. My party was about a foot from the party to our left and right. It was impossible to have private conversations as we could hear theirs and I'm pretty sure vice versa.
