    Everything was impeccable as we have come to expect from RPM restaurants. Had oysters, salmon crudo, grilled octopus, caesar salad, scallops, ahi tuna and hazelnut praline for dessert. Nothing disappointed. Highlights were octopus and tuna. cocktails were delicious. service was great.

    The service was great and really liked the view of the river. Most of the food was really amazing but one of the dishes was not the best. We had ordered the bass here before and this time it didn’t turn out like the last time. Overall we had a great night and good experience they definitely take care of you and amazing atmosphere!

    Valentines Day and as you could well imagine it was somewhat busy. Seated us on time. Food was outstanding. Service was fine. Took them awhile to bring check and then to pick up credit card with the check. Other than that. A wonderful night. Oh and the lovely beautiful lady who joined me, certainly did not hurt my evening.

    Food was ridiculously salty. The wait staff was incredibly nice and stated they could remake, but when your whole meal would have to be remade that was something we just were not comfortable with. Some pieces of crab had to be spit out. Dunking in water did not help.

    Food amazing, service amazing, location amazing, restaurant is beautiful… music however is absolutely hideous and loud.. gives me and my wife the worst anxiety every time we eat here. We travel and eat nice restaurants all over the country and have never encountered an experience like this.. the sounds just aren’t aligned with the rest of the experience..

    The hidden added service fee in lieu of "raising menu prices" is what I'll remember about this meal. The undisclosed fee just angers customers for no reason. Just raise menu prices, and no one feels misled. Also, the ceaser salad was delicious.

    The food was underwhelming on this visit. The octopus was excellent. My husband got the branzino and it was over cooked and the plating was sad. It had 3-4 olive or tomatoes on it it - he has to ask for olive oil. I has the crab Mac and cheese- the pasta was so small it was hard to eat. There was just a few pieces of crab on it. Service was excellent. Amazing wine list although very pricey

    My husband and I really wanted to love this place. We’ve been to RPM Steak & RPM Italian, the food there was awesome! Our dinner here was such a disappointment. The crab mac & cheese had no crab in it, peekytoe crab was too salty we couldn’t eat it, octopus was the only thing very tasty however portion was incredibly small, nothing like their photos. The side of wood mushrooms and branzino were way too salty and potatoes weren’t anything special. Overall spent way too much for less than mediocre food. If you give this spot a try, good luck. Hopefully your experience has better food.

    Great ambience however, I thought the prices were far too high with everything being a la carte. I get it, it’s on the swanky side but I that the options, and portion sizes did not warrant the prices. Service was excellent. Martini was tiny for the price also. I love Lettuce but will not go back here.

    This was our first visit to RPM. We love RPM Italian and have also dined @ RPM Steak, so we were eager to try RPM Seafood. The dining space is beautiful and we hope to return in the summer. Service was impeccable: friendly, professional, efficient and also compassionate with care to diners individual tastes and needs. The only negative was it was my birthday and the restaurant did nothing even though my husband reminded them when we arrived. Perhaps, that is RPM policy, but no one said anything. Prices here are high so RPM Seafood is more of a special occasion destination. We look forward to a second visit soon.
